Maybe taste loss is why Burzynski gets away with deriving his antineoplastins from piss!
..... but it can't be all bad if peppermint tea improves to the level of terrible.

I hope everything went well.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Everything did go well. Now I have to put up with the side effects.

Hair

Hair is already falling out 2 weeks after the first Chemo. Should have set up a betting pool.

Oh well, the Irish Festival is this weekend so I will probably buy a Tam.

Hair is overrated.
A mate of mine lost the lot after chemo and he still claimed to have more than me!
.... he got better ....

Who the hell needs hair anyway? I started shaving my head as soon as I started turning gray.

Yeah, my youngest brother (aged 50) didn't stop pounding those coffin nails even after one of his brothers (and BOTH parents died from tobacco). He had surgery, chemo and radiation around this time last year. He still does not have armpit or neck hair. His tracheotomy hole is finally healed shut. He had that for a year, in constant pain. He ended up in the hospital many times with nausea and vomiting during the chemo and radiation. Got dehydrated, etc. I do hope your regimen goes better.

As a female I had a beautiful head of thick gray hair. Baldness does not interest me.

I had a great time today. I kept telling everyone at work that the job was so stressful that I was pulling my hair out. Then I demonstrated by pulling my hair out. You should have seen the look on their faces.

FYI - Half my hair is gone since morning.

Semi-OK. It may be that the big C is coming back to get him. Tobacco is a nasty substance with a huge enabling presence behind it.

You are a wicked thing, aren't you? I like that.

Interestingly enough, since I retired last October, my hair is starting to grow back. I commuted many miles from home and worked out of town away from family for decades. Pretty stressful, I guess. But when one is inside the bottle, it just seems like business as usual, and I didn't think about that. My wife had a nasty infection about 4 years ago, and was taking some serious antibiotics. Her hair was falling out from the antibiotics- first time I'd ever heard of that, but I've only had what I would guess were "mild" antibiotics, or infections.

Save your hair and have it made into a wig, if you can, as it will be natural-looking for you. I guess maybe you should find a female perspective on this, since I'm just another greasy guy who may not be providing decent feedback.

I think wigs are filthy thing. It will be hat and scarves for me.

Maybe I'll get a henna crown.
