I could use some insight or commiseration. I’m 47, and 2 cycles into an estimated 6, with Carboplatin and Paclitaxel, for Stage 2A, high grade serous epithelial cell ovarian cancer, having had a large tumour removed, as well as a full hysterectomy, in late Feb 2022. I buzz cut my hair in mid-April, then shaved it mid-May when it started falling out. And now, it is fully broken out, so incredibly itchy and sore, and some bumps look like cystic acne. Is this just ‘normal’ or is there something they can do to give me some relief? The worst part is that it looks so bad - the last shred of vanity is being stripped away. Please let me know if something worked for you!
Gosh its bad enough all that cancer and treatment do to us and to have that added to the mix must be so maddening. I"m sure there's a miracle prescription waiting for you. Good luck and keep us posted. I would be interested to know what treatment they do use.
I'm so glad they felt the appropriate resource to recommend treatment was your GP. I hope it all works for you. I'll add to the crossed fingers that you get some quick relief. Keep us posted.
