That is your preference. I choose not to wig. For one, wigs are expensive and after trying to budget for a huge co-pay to the oncologist, there wasn't a lot of dollars left over for frivolous things like wigs.
Of course, I would want more than one. Why? Don't know. But after looking at several catalogs, I couldn't make up my mind. As if I could.
Scarfs and bandanas come in a variety of colors and patterns. Some are wildly bold and some plain. Some are expensive and some pretty cheap. Take your pick. Most of mine are in the range of cheap chic.
While you're undergoing a chemo treatment and the nurse asks you if you would like something to drink, don't ask for something you like. If you do, the metallic taste of the drugs will ruin the great taste of the drink you liked and you'll no longer enjoy it.
So far, it's been: *water *sprite *v-8 *dr. pepper
After the chemo treatment, ask for an extra prescription for something to help with nausea. I went 3 treatments and suffered terrible nausea and after the 4th the nurse asked about my nausea. She then gave me a prescription for Reglan.
It worked good enough to take the edge off and made my life a little more tolerable.
