More on hair loss and chemo

Posted Dec 27 2010 9:42pm

Understanding the Impact of Hair Loss in Cancer Patients:
For some patients, hair loss is the thing they dread most about cancer treatment. But caregivers are often much more worried about nausea and fatigue and pain, and they don't understand those feelings 
Hair loss represents one more thing cancer rips away from a woman, adding to a long list that includes health and body parts, the ability to work or the ability to have children. 
Cancer patients often describe losing their hair as feeling like they're walking around with no skin; they feel raw, exposed, and powerless
Cancer patients describe looking in the mirror and feeling like they're staring at a stranger. What could be more disorienting than not recognizing yourself?

This is an interesting approach: Of course something else that was never offered to me :(
