Five years in, the hairloss is even getting difficult for this pro hairstylist to manage. While I didn’t fully recover my hair following chemotherapy, what did emerge is slowly peetering out- I’m probably down 85% of my pre-treatment glory, and that is definitely not an emotionally-driven estimate.
I’m resolved to continue my aromatase inhibitor for the additional five years that have been recommended, and am also swallowing my onco’s warning that it’s likely… read more
My hair started growing 7 weeks after chemotherapy which ended 6/23/17. My peach fuzz is softer than before now GRAY & BLACK hair. My hair was brown with few gray strands.

LOW,MADE IT BACK TO WORK BUT MY JOB CAN BE VERY PHYSICAL AT TIMES,AND I FIND THAT I DONT HAVE THE ENERGY IT REQUIRES AT TIMES.THINKING OF CHANGING MY PROFESSION.HAS ANYONE HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM AFTER TREATMENT?
I was stage IIa with invasive ductal carcinoma, HER2 negative, ER+/PR-. Had a bilateral mastectomy, 1 lymph node has 0.33mm of cancer, but the rest were clean. I will also be on Tamoxifen for 5 years.
Just wondering what everyone's oncotype score was and their treatment plan? I was stage IIB, ER+, PR+, HER2-, 2/18 nodes positive, tumor "mid grade" and 3.0 cm final size due to spiculations (the starburst arms). Central tumor size 2.2 cm. I had a bilateral mastectomy. And chemo is DD adriamycin and cytoxan every other week x4 (took neulasta after each) following with 12 weekly taxol doses. My oncotype score was 24.
I got a coffee enema kit for Christmas from some friends who want me to do the Gerson Therapy instead of chemotherapy. Do you have any input, advice, or experience to share about this?
Did anyone else's periods stop completely during treatments? I started chemotherapy last December 14, I have my last herceptin this coming Friday. Last January out of the blue I started my period but then it never came back. Now I feel like I'm about to start. I was just wondering if I will get it back. I am 43 years old and am on tamoxifen now.
