..tumubo ulit ang buhok ko 🙂
chemotherapy has taken a toll on my hair. at first i didn’t want to shave it even if my doctor has advised me to do so even before the start of the chemo session. (why? the reason can be found in some of my previous entries). but after the fourth cycle, there were already patches that look like holes in my head and the hair fall was enormous. i had to wear a cap most of the time. so the situation gave me no choice but to see my favorite barber and have my hair shaved.
the result was: a man with almost shaved head, with a swollen face due to steroids and chemo, sick sleepy eyes and a skinny body. i felt so bad about it really. i don’t want to look at myself in the mirror. i used to have that “skin-head” hair style about 2 or 3 years ago but i didn’t feel bad about it. maybe because this time, i had to shave my hair not for the sake of fashion but because it was necessary.
so after the chemo sessions, Uncle Vic, who lives in Australia, sent me 3 bottles of DABAO hair grower. he told me he’s using it and it was very effective. so i did some research on the product and found out that it was formulated, tested in Holland and it’s in the market for almost 15 years now. i was kinda weary at first because i’ve never use a hair grower before but Uncle Vic assured me that the thing is safe and has no side effects.
i actually saw that it is indeed working when i was half way through my first bottle and was happy with the results after i’ve finished my 2nd bottle. i’m no longer wearing a cap now and my hair is growing back in moderate proportion.
i’m happy that things are slowly going back to normal. i believe that remission is really on its way. i’m seeing my doctor next tuesday and my hopes are high that my prayers will be answered.
still a long way to go……the journey from brokenman to betterman is in progress……and i’m just happy that i have HIM with me every step of the way.
