thanks for your reply, sounds quite interesting!
I really can't tell what my hair is doing yest ( besides growing that is )
I can't wait to use products on my hair again , thats if they have'nt gone out of date yet!!!
but then again its been easy when it comes to styling, just pop on a wig,
oh well , by this time next year I'II probably be complaining what to do with my hair.
Whats funny is that it is really thick on top, its not long enough to tell yet but may have a bit of a wave (been using a bit of product lately -- Yeaaaaaa) and it sorta kinks a bit. But on the sides and back its dead straight, So I'm guessing if it doesn't sort itself out I really could look very strange with thick waves on top and straight fine sides.
But I sure am not going to winge about it, just to be able to leave the house without a scarf/wig is fantastic, no matter what it looks like..
I now get so excited when i wake up with bed hair and have to wet it!!!!!
Hi Kim, glad you could enjoy a wine, I sure did last night and have had a very fuzzy head today
(got a great story from my night out and will post it tomorrow)
Janine, re my boys and my hair, you know if I can think of one pleasant thing about chemo and BC - that was it!!!
Oh yeah and how it sooooooo changed the priorities in my life. I now surround myself with people I want to be with, not who I thought I should be with. - I have a very TOXIC sister in law, but thats another story too, you all will love it!!
off to snore girls, talk and post some stories tomorrow,
love Nav xxxx
starting my radiotherapy tomorrow, a bit uncertain but I'm sure it will be easier than chemo!
I'm now four weeks post chemo and my hair is slowly starting to grow back,
question for Nav, has your hair grown back the same?
I am really hoping I get curls like kyle Minogue had
I guess I am new to this sight. I've been on before but AGES ago. I am 4 weeks post chemo and I just wanted to let you girls that are going through chemo to know it does END and like someone else said the feeling when it does is unreal.
I had six rounds of TEC and a double mas with expanders, I am getting my new boobies in March (and I'm having my ovaries out also) I was ER+ and HER-. I am just now beginning to feel good again - I suppose I still have bad days but the majority are good. Chemo wasn't 'too' bad although it was bad - I just couldn't handle the chemo feeling - lethargic and tired no energy.... I only vomitted with my first chemo which was by the far the worst, I also got some type of stomach infection and couldn't even walk - anyway the last five were much better and now its all over. YAY
Anyway I will look forward to reading more.
Glad to hear you're helping to spread the word about the forum. Roll up noobs!
Yowyow - I love your hair story. Isn't it amazing how in amongst all the yukky stuff there are these very precious moments! (and some funny ones too)

I think thats a great way to handle the hair situation with kids..and they had fun as well. You must be a brave person sitting there with two kids both armed with scissors.
And champagne to finish off a memorable day!
I was so sick of cleaning up EVERWHERE, I mean when you are picking it out of your coffee and your kids kinder lunches something had to be done.
Thought a good way to get them involved was to let them cut it. It was a sh%#@ty melb' winter day and they were fighting like crazy. I gave them both a pair of scissors (obviously explained they would never eva eva be able to do this again)
Instructions were - make sure the sharp points always pointed at the roof, well I got a few jabs but no broken skin.
It took them at least half an hour and I dont have to explain how stupid I looked.
My girlfriend come over that night and shaved it, we had great fun doing mohawks etc whilst drinking a bottle of moet champagne. When the boys woke up in the morning and I had a beanie on there were no questions as they knew already they had cut it.
Scary but it was all fun.
Wow, My boys are 5 & 6, close to yours.
I don't have to have radiation as I chose to have dbl mast'.
Also as not having radiation I was able to have immediate silicon implants.
Looking forward to chatting to you and others.
If I don't catch up her over the weekend, have a great one!!

When we first shaved my head I wouldn't even sleep without a beanie, I was just so self consious, I wouldn't let anyone touch it and my kids (4 & 5) wouldn't let me leave home without my "spare hair" .
By about 4-5th tmt I started to relax at home and I started to go bald a bit as it was starting to get warm, my kids kept reminding me to put the hair or hat on. Then after a while they just got used to it and so did I.(still wouldn't go out without at least a scarf and big long groovy earings when I left the house though.
I now where you are all at right now and its soooooooooooooo hard.
But it wont take too long and it will be back.
I started chemo in June'06 - finished in Oct'06 and was wig/scarfless at xmas.
Its not that long and its def' worth it.!!
Luv nav xxxx
HUGS to all
love kim xxxx
