I was diagnosed with stage 13c in 2002. I did well on chemo. I was not sick I took Zofran for nausea and dexamethasone. I started loosing my hair about the second week after my first treatment. the way you know your hair is about to fall out is the back or your scalp will become soar. I also took iron pill three times a day so I would not have to take Procrit. The only problem I had was weight gain.View Thread
