I got tired of my Heat Miser hair. For the first time ever, I used a trimmer. This was the result. You can't really tell, but there are many thinned areas on my head, so I won't be out in public like this for a while. The new chemo apparently doesn't have the hair loss side effect, so I guess my hair will grow back.
I look happier in this picture than I actually feel. It has been quite a day, and I have taken my first Vicoden. Oh. What. Fun. I was concerned about masking the pain, but apparently, if what I take stops working, that is the way the docs know things got worse. Lovely, ain't it?
My plan is to take as little as possible, as infrequently as possible. Just knowing I have it, though, I have to hope is a good thing. Other times I will be trying to use Ibuprofen, and hopefully that will help, too.
(For anyone who doesn't know...this is Heat Miser)
