  • Facial Hair Weirdness After Chemo (6 months)

    Hello i finished my treathment 3xBEP and RPLND. All Clear. My beard was just fine and looking good. It just started being patchy and i dont know why. Is that a common thing ? Sorry for by bad english.

    I suppose it could be one of two things (maybe both) :

    1: Hair does some funny / unexpected things in that first years after chemo.
    2: Possibly Low Testosterone

    My guess is #1 if you are experiencing no other symptoms.

    In my case my hair came back it's original color (no gray hair like I had before). Then all of a sudden the beard started graying up. The hair would be dark and suddenly fading to white, just suddenly white. About 4-5 months after chemo completed the hair on my head suddenly went curly. I literally woke up one morning and had curly hair. Then a month or two later it suddenly went back to being straight. I went ot bed the night before with curly hair and woke up with straight hair.
