Re: hair loss
I agree with Laura B...you get quite a bit of hair growth after six months, but it takes about a year or so before it gets back almost to what it was before.
The other thing to be aware of is that your hair can thin out after menopause. If you had some treatment that put you in premature menopause, or if you're approaching menopause naturally, you may experience some thinning. But again...it may take some time to determine just how much is the lingering after effects of the chemo.
One other thing I just thought of...there is a condition called alopecia. Sometimes there's no known cause for it, but sometimes stress causes it. I'm not sure what the treatment for it is (maybe short-term steroids?), but if you actually have bald spots, you should bring it up again with your doctor and ask if it could be alopecia.
