    FDA Approval for Less Hair Loss

    Excerpt:
    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Paxman Scalp Cooling System which reduces the likelihood of chemotherapy-related hair loss for patients with solid tumors, such as ovarian, breast, colorectal and prostate cancers, according to a press release by Paxman, the United Kingdom-based manufacturer of the system.

    This makes me very happy because one of my biggest fears is losing my hair whenever I start chemo and radiation.

    My journey so far:
    September 2018 - dx with lymphoma
    October 2018 - 2 lung biopsies, pending information in regards to lymphoma stage, lymphoma type and treatment plan
    Halloween/Nov 1 2018 - dx with stage 2 lymphoma unfavorable, got 1st round of chemo on Nov 1, feeling nauseaous and tired but overall ok, taking supplements to reduce risk of losing hair
    April 4 2019 - Final Chemo!
    May 20 2019 - first radiation treatment!
    June 3 2019 - final radiation treatment!
