Topic: Taxotere Lower Dose Hair Still Falls Out

Looks like I'm going to be baldy again.  I told the wife last night after I showered.  She pleaded not to shave it off, to wait just a little while. Ha! I told her I'd try some dipity do hair gel for a couple days but if that don't work it's got to be shaven.  Oh well, round 3 of this stuff on the 26th I'm sure that will increase the fall out rate.  Other wise labs all normal except slightly below average on the  wbc ,rbc, and platelets, which we all know is part of the show with chemo.  Happy Holidays to the best extent possible.
God Bless,

Hi Jeff - have you tried the hair product called Nioxin?  It's supposed to help stop the hair loss.

Jeff,

This might be the perfect time in your life to cultivate the Mohawk look!

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Thanks Guys!  You both have a Merry One!  I'll pass on the Mohawk look G.  I might get carried away and start scalping my Grandchildren.  Why do they always want to to play you up at christmas time, especially when they know Santa is coming.
God Bless,

Hi Lisa, I happened to mention nioxin to my wife and walla she had the shampoo and conditioner.  Looks like I might not be baldy on Christmas afterall. Ha!  I don't no if it will hold up to another round of this chemo but at least I can give it a whirl.
Thank You for the Tip!
Jeff
