What to do about Endocrine Therapy Induced Hair Loss?

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

Serious sadness the day after chemo

Does anyone else get seriously sad the day after chemo? I don't know what it is, but I can't stop crying and I'm a total mess. I'm usually pretty strong.

In late April I'll have a double mastectomy (I have the BRCA gene), and then 6-8 weeks of radiation.

Is the constant crying the day after chemo normal? I had chemo in the late… read more

Weight Loss after steroid injections

I have had 3 epidural spinal steroid injections since the end of November. I was 118.5 before the first injection and now I am 110 pounds. I eat healthy because my husband has cardiovascular disease. I haven’t really been able to exercise besides
PT exercises. Should I be worried this may be cancer related?
