hair loss x2

I had 2 rounds of FEC chemotherapy and lost my hair. When I was switched to Taxotere (4 rounds) my hair stopped falling out and started to regrow. Now that I've finished the Taxotere (last treatment was 3 weeks ago), my hair has started falling out again. What's going on??

Hi,
Hair loss is quite common in patients receiving chemotherapy. Your temporal pattern of hair loss - regrowth - hair loss is somewhat unusual.
This pattern is sometimes seen in patients who switch chemo regimens.
All the best, and God Bless!
