Will it grow back?

My mom had WBR in August and lost her hair from that treatment. She is now in the middle of her chemotherapy with her last treatment scheduled for December 17th. Today she asked one of the nurses when she could expect her hair to grow back and the nurse told her since she had WBR it might not grow back. This really upset my mom. I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who has had WBR followed by chemo. who would be willing to give us some insight? Is there a chance her hair might never grow back? I really appreciate any information you can give!

Thank you--

Col had WBR and chemo. Her hair is growing back. It seems like it is doing so at a snail's pace, and it grows more where there was less radiation and less where there was a more concentrated radiation. But it is growing back.

Hope this helps, and Hopefully everything works out for you.

I just started WBR today. I start Bioten yesterday. I did Bioten when I did chemo last year and I didn't ;ose my hair. Just trying to see if it will work with WRB. Will keep you updated. Doctor said about 2 weeks. I'm starting my bandanas now so everyone can get use to them. Hugs, Liz

She does have a wig, but she doesn't like it. She says that it's uncomfortable--the longest she can wear it is 1-2 hours. It's getting her through right now, but she was hoping she could look forward to putting it away some time in the future. She's still hopeful that she'll be exception and her hair will grow back. We'll see.

Only four more weeks and she's done with the chemo! :lol:
