As my physician brother-in-law says – Your hair doesn’t fall out when your hyper, it becomes brittle and breaks off. I had RAI about 2 weeks ago so I don’t know about hair loss from hypo (falling out or breaking off). He said as you go hypo you may notice some shedding – not to the point of baldness, of course and it is reversible (I assume he means when you stabilize).
I’m new to this BBoard and I appreciate all the comments everyone gives each other. There is a supportive feeling you get when you read the comments of other’s going through the same thing you are.
I would like to know after you receive the RAI treatment. How much hair do you lose and how long does it fall out and when does it start to grow back? I know this varies from person to person, but I would like to get an idea of the best and worst cases. I have decided to do the RAI treatment some time in January. I’ve been taking Tapazole for the past 2 years–hoping for a miracle.
