    It was about 3 months before my hair was back but it was very very short. I stopped wearing my wig though. I couldn't wait to get rid of it.

      Do it! You can use scarves or hats. Or just go bald and if people don't like it, too bad.

    First you get a white fuzz, it's horrible, then the 'real' hair comes in. Should be any time now. Prayers to you.

      The fuzz is horrible. That's when I 'looked sick'. I did have more grey when it grey. Came in salt & pepper. Normal is strawberry blonde. I had a few greys. My hair is getting lighter & not so much grey anymore.

      I am doing well Tamara. Finished chemo on May 10th and just had my implant exchange surgery this past Thursday. Taking one day at a time. Looking forward to being done so that I can resume a semi normal life. How are you?

    Weird thing - I'm getting fuzz now, feels like velour on my head - freaky. At first I thought it was wishful thinking so I didn't say anything about it till my roommate asked what the hell was happening to my head. I still have 7 Taxetere treatments to go so I'm not sure why it's happening - but yeah me!
