View Full Version : Getting ready to start chemo.

January 29th, 2011, 08:26 AM
I think this weekend I will go get my hair cut real short and take the hair to the place where I will get a wig to match the color. I figured this would give me a couple of weeks to get use to having short hair before it is all gone. I told my son I was going to get either a hot pink or a purple wig... he almost had a cow! LOL:cheese:

Pink or purple sounds great! I am sorry you are going through this, but you certainly are facing it with style and grace.

I do hope the treatment will be successful and put you on the road to recovery.

I'm so sorry you have to go through with this, and I wish you the best for your recovery. Your attitude certainly seems healthy and amazing!

Best thoughts for you.

How about one matching wig and one hot pink one?

I hope do you like your new cut.

Best of luck to you during your treatment process. I have a friend who cut her hair very short then eventually buzzed it. Her hair is growing out now, but she was a baldie for awhile. I like the idea of a purple wig. My friend had a great wig, but ended up going without one most of the time.

Good luck with your treatment. My mum had chemo and it didnt affect her hair at all.

Forwigs I would check out Ebay it has some great styles that start of really cheap even for real hair.

You might also like to look for wig care on You Tube as there are a lot of information discussed.

If you dont want to wear a wig all the time, then may I suggest some nice fleece caps/hats and some cotton scarves. You may like to get a special one for bed, as you head can get cold while you sleep.

If you not sure if they will irritate then place them against the back of your hand to see, it always works for me).

So sorry to hear that you're ill. Wishing you a full recovery!

I admire your courage, pluck, and humor in facing adversity. I hope the treatment works and you recover.

Best wishes to your treatment being a total success.
And dying your hair a bright colour would be fun, if only to embarass your son.
Hope all goes well for you and to a speedy recovery.

Not only a solid crazy color, but there are cool rainbow colors, short and long. I am proud to know you. Your attitude rocks.

Keeping you in prayer.

All the best to you during your treatment and recovery. If I was going to need a wig, I think hot pink would be a lot of fun. Go for it, if that's what you want! It never hurts to shock our kids a little, right? ;)

January 29th, 2011, 04:53 PM
Good luck to you! So sorry to hear that you're sick, but you seem to be handling it with strength and courage. My best to you and your family, and have fun with you're wigs!!!

I'm glad you have such a positive attitude. Best of luck with your treatment! :flower:

PS - My vote is for the pink wig ;)

January 29th, 2011, 09:28 PM
Wishing you the best of luck with your treatment. :flowers: I love the sound of a hot pink wig! Hope you like your new cut too.

My mommy started chemo in July, and she's now recovered and growing more hair than ever before (and wayyy curlier). Good luck!
