Small Cell Neuroendocrine cancer of the vagina
I am new to the site, somehow wandered here from google while trying to figure out when I might lose my hair from chemo. I am an American living and working in Germany when I was diagnosed with small cell neuroendocrine cancer of the vagina (T2N0M0) in February. I underwent open resection of the tumor along with lymph node biopsy (none positive at the time of surgery but a new one lit up on MRI on the 5th of April) and have completed one round of chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide. Found myself in the hospital 5 days after chemo with a fever and infection and just got released yesterday after eight days. Due to start my second round of chemo in about 10 days and petrified this will happen again! Have noticed some hair loss and scalp sensitivity but no large clumps. Just trying to see if there is anyone out there who is going through something similar. I could use some support.
