Low grade 3C serous adenocarcinoma here. I'm currently undergoing 6 rounds of chemo to combat this disease and with it comes the joy of having my hair fall out. It was shocking and upsetting when it first happened, and now, going in to my third round of chemo, I've gotten used to it.
My question is, what kind of head coverings is everyone sporting these days? I ordered some on Amazon, and they are quite comfortable but I like to have variety in my wardrobe! I've also reached out to my local Guardian Angel caring room and borrowed a wig and beanies, but they weren't as comfortable and the wig felt very cheap and unnatural. Has anyone bought a wig and have any insight on what I should look for when purchasing my own? What types of head coverings are the best?
Thanks for any help!
Good luck...and remember, this too shall pass. I've never experienced hair loss with any of my treatments but of my friends who have, I can attest their hair came back thicker, and for those with naturally straight hair, even some curly.
Good Morning! It sounds like you have undergone some of the similar things that I have and same graded LGSC 3C.
I lost my hair by the 2nd round and took it off myself as my scalp really started to hurt. I considered a wig but decided that it was not for me and would be too hot for the summer. I rocked between "going commando" and wearing scarves. I purchased mine online and matched them with most of my summer dresses. The link to it is this: http://www.headcovers.com there is lots of variety and they do have some for cooler weather as well. Check it out and see what you think. Some of the ones I bought are good for sleeping too but I also used them outside as it got a bit cooler as my head was sensitive to wind.
