Hair loss /take 2!

Sorry, I stuffed up the first post. Just wondering if it's usual to lose hair from your hair, but not your eyebrows, eyelashes, legs and arms? I've just had my second round of chemo, so maybe it's just a matter of time...

Argh! I meant to say that I've lost hair from my *head* (not from my "hair"). Not having much luck today.

Re: Hair loss /take 2!

Hi,

After my second round of chemo, I lost most of  the hair on my head in a matter of days. I have am up to my fourth round and still have my eyelashes but my eyebrows are slowly disappearing. I think after the head hair has just about gone then the rest slowly follows. So it will happen gradually.
