I think every cancer patient goes through the uneasiness of what it is going to be like to go bald. Not all chemotherapy causes hair loss, but I was all but guaranteed mine would. As with everything cancer related nobody can tell you when it is going to happen, just that most likely it will happen.
Well this afternoon it started to happen. I was told that my scalp may start to tingle and feel a little warm, and mid morning that is what I felt. Not thinking anything of it, I just kind of went about doing my thing. An itch developed so I scratched it, much to my surprise when I looked at my hand there was a handful of hair. Not sure what I expected but I didn’t expect it to fall out this way, I think I expected more of an actual event. Like maybe in the shower a bunch falling out or maybe when I went to style it in the morning a bunch ending up in my hand. Nope looks like it is just going to fall out over a couple of days. The debate in the house is let it happen naturally or speed the process along.
Unlike most I am not that self conscientious about being bald. I’ve always wanted to know what I’d look like bald but never had the guts to shave my head. Well I guess this week I am going to find out.
