Eek! My hair is falling out!
I did not know where to go with this discussion, but figured that the BC issue is behind this so I am starting here. I have had BC twice…in 2007 and 2018. I did not have to do chemo for either occurrence. This hair loss seemed to start a month or so ago and is not letting up. I had bilateral mastectomy with diep flap reconstruction in July. The surgery was a long one and I decided to do it because I found that I had the CHEK2 genetic mutation. The surgery was 10 hours and I was in the hospital 4 days. The recovery was, I thought, pretty easy. I had radiation for both BC surgeries and took tamoxifen the first time and am taking anastrozole now. I have been taking it for 2 1/2 years and had no problem with it. Has anyone had a similar experience? Since I never did chemo I think I am talking apples and oranges, but what can I do to stop this? It is not the result of chemo. I am thinking stress or a shock to my body.
