advice on returning to work without a wig

I have decided that tomorrow I will go to work without my wig. The people who I work with did not know I had cancer. Has anyone got any words of advice for me?

Hi Rachel C Go for it! Be prepared for some comments but they'll settle down soon. Have a story ready, rehearse it and stick to it. Keep it short and to the point. Cheers Sailor

Is your wig a similar colour and/or style to your own hair? I have no real advice. I was supposed to get bald patches from imrt but didn't. The oncologist was surprised.
