    I had cytoxan and taxotere four years ago (6 cycles) and my hair did not grow back. I wish I had known that was a possible side effect because I would have insisted on some other regimen. May not happen to you but it happened to me and to many other women around the world .

      My hair has grown back but it has been a battle. Very very Thin on the top. I have a natural mullet. I am so sorry i wish we had gotten the thick curly hair they said we 'd get.

      We sound like twins except I am going thru chemo again for a recurrence and am slick bald but expect my mullet to regrow. This is truly a sad disease.
