Just a quick note to say hi! Got my results back today too for the 8mos. post and all is well - just not much hair improvement. Atlanta is in the 90's this week so I am bareheaded for the duration since I am off of work. Too damn hot for wigs or hats.
Just a quick note to say hi! I'm doing really well. I go back on Monday for I guess it's 8mos post treatment. I'm not nervous because I know that we made it after this long. Still no luck with the hair - round 3 of scalp steroid shots on Monday to try to get the rash irritation calmed down. It's a ***** but I'm dealing with it. It's just too hot here in Atlanta to have a wig plastered to my head so I haven't figured out a solution yet. Last summer I was so sick with the drugs/rash that the last thing I cared about was my head being hot. Let me know when you get your results.
Hey! Thanks for the note about the kenalog shot. That is what I got today but it has been six hours and no relief. Just a funny taste in my mouth .... Have slathered on topical and hoping to go to bed once it dries a bit.
Just got the word - SVR!!!! I am about to post it on the forum. Hard to believe , isn't it? The dermatologist says my scalp has not fully recovered from the rash and that is why my hair is not growing back very well. she gave me steroid shots in the scalp and a prescription for a solution to put on it and Latisse for my eyebrows. We'll see what happens.
