I have lost my hair 4 times. Since I am now on taxol probably permanently, I
have become resigned to spending the rest of my life without hair. I am just
glad to have a "rest of my life."
At any rate, after the high dose chemotherapy and ABMT in 3/96, I did not
start to grow hair (actually peach fuzz) until 10/96. It had only taken
about 3 months to get to that stage with the previous chemos. I was assured
by nurses that the hair always comes back, even though it takes longer for
One other thing to check is if post-chemo meds also cause hair loss. Maybe
they are interfering with regrowth?
Hope this info helps your friend. Also wish you continued happiness with Dr.
