I’ve had so many people ask me about my hair after doing whole brain radiation. Hair is so important to most people, it defines you. I have always had a head full of blonde curly hair. Those days are gone! I started losing my hair the second week of WBR. Instead of waiting for it to fall out I shaved my head. About three months after WBR it started growing back. I was so excited!! About six months later I realized it wasn’t going to come back completely. I had what I called a “nohawk”. My hair grew in on the sides and on the back of my head but not on the top. My oncology radiologist said the radiation skims the top of the head and it may not grow back there. A year later and no hair is growing on top of my head. This is what it looks like…….
I don’t think it’s ever going to grow back on top. I just keep shaving my head. I honestly don’t mind being bald. That’s the least of my worries! 95% of the time I walk around bald and happy to be alive! I have beautiful wigs and I wear them if I go somewhere special with my Javiee, My favorite….
Here’s a picture of my cousin Teressa and I. If you see me out and about it’s usually like this…..bald. I’ve embraced my baldness!
That’s my hair story. Thank you guys for all the love you send my way! I love you all!!! Now get out and make some memories!
