I Am On Herceptin And Taxol And Have Shaved My Head Due To Hair Loss, Does Your Hair Start To Grow Back When Your Only On Herceptin?

I Am On Herceptin And Taxol And Have Shaved My Head Due To Hair Loss, Does Your Hair Start To Grow Back When Your Only On Herceptin?

Yes, it does- and so many other things start to happen as well! The chemo fog starts to lift, energy starts building back (be careful, it's easy to overdo and get fatigued because it feels so good to feel up to stuff again!), your sense of taste and smell start to right themselves. The infusion sessions are quick and easy! I am excited for you in reaching this milestone!!- I "almost" (lol!) felt guilty taking the whole day off work for Herceptin- I would go in the morning, then do any other appts I might have to do- otherwise I would go to brunch, then do something fun! Congratulations!!

Mine is growing slowly. I have perjata and herceptin for months. Very slow growth.

I have Abraxen with Herceptin and still have 6 more treatments to go. Dealing with swelling, yes I am also dealing with hair loss and fatigue due to weight gain from swelling. My Herceptin will continue until December 2023.

I had 8 out of 10 treatments with taxol and Herceptin, then 12 treatments of Herceptin without taxol every 3 weeks. My hair started to grow back as soon as I stopped taxol. The Herceptin by itself is not bad at all.
