Hello Hello TEAM Tammy!
Thank you all again so much for all of your support! I am working my way through the milestones of cancer.
How's Chemo treating me?
CHEMO 1: 04-08-21
I admit that the above symptoms certainly cannot be described as a good time, but truly I feel that it wasn't horrible! I still feel blessed that I can benefit from going through all of this to come out the other side of this healthy and happy!
Last but not least of all: HAIR LOSS - is an unavoidable side effect of my chemo regime is hair loss. I knew that the bulls-eye for this was going to be around the 2 week mark. SO that is where we are.... I prepared for this by cutting my hair before my first chemo. This past Sunday (Day 12) my hair started to fall out. I also experienced a tender scalp like you get from a tight pony tail or if someone pulled really hard on your hair. So, I got my head shaved. It is shaved to a #2, this allows me to use a lint roller on my head to pull out the hair that has died and let loose from the follicle. I will likely be completely bald in about a week. I was nervous about this step. I was really worried that I would have an ugly or have and odd misshapen head that would just make me feel even more self-conscious. It turned out ok, its not too bad and I have even felt confident enough to not wear a head covering.
Next post ....... Head-coverings.
Thank you everyone for your continued support.
