  • Hair loss after Carboplatin x2

    Hi , guys !

    i had carboplatin (900ml) x2 times. (10.2018 / 11.2018)

    really wondering about hair loss informations from carboplatin.

    At the time, my doctor said that "carboplatin is not involved in hair loss."

    After the first round of cancer, my hair was no change, but when I woke up after the second round, my hair fell off my pillow.(Not now.)
    and a few days later, I took a shower and thought my top of the head looked a little empty.

    I guess I've been missing quite a bit.

    As he said, I didn't get bald.
    but my hair is still getting pretty hair loss and have gotten very thin. although six months have passed since chemotherapy.

    Most of my hair loss occurs when I shampoo.


    Is this correct for hair loss caused by carboplatin?
    ​If so, will it improve over time?

    If you have any information about this, please let me know !

    I cannot recall anyone mentioning hair loss during carboplatin, but hair loss months post chemo of any kind is not normal. Generally, hair is returning at that point, even if it is somewhat "different" than normal.What oes your doc say?

      I’m still losing body hair five weeks post BEP completion that I never lost during it. Beard is already growing back. I found this a little strange.

        It is a bit unusual, but others have reported hair loss months post chemo, everyone has different reactions.
