Karen,lost my eyelashes & eyebrows on my last chemo session at end. Growing back now--eyelashes coming in thick. Can't put mascara on them yet--too short. But they are thicker than before & seem to be growing back pretty fast. Brows growing back but not thick. This is just my experience.
I have several friends that didn't lise theirs, but lucky me! I lost hair, eyelashes, eyebrows... Lets just say if there was hair on my body, I lost it!! LOL! But it's all coming back now!! You just never know! God bless!!
I started chemo in June and didn't lose them until September, but I didn't even notice the brows bc they were thinning a little at a time and then some sections am started growing back while some originals still hung on. That's when I noticed bc they came in a little darker. My lashes were gone for literally 4 weeks and then they grew back. They too thinned out a little at a time. I just used black eyeliner on my lids when the lashes were gone
