If you need to pass the time while beating it, you might be beating it wrong.

Why oh why do people straighten such lovely, curly hair?

Actually subby, it's just the chemo that causes hair loss.

Well if she needs help to beat it, it's good someone's willing to eat it.

I shaved my head when my wife finished Chemo, right now her hair is growing back much faster then we thought it would, then again my hair doesn't grow on my head anymore either so she gets a good laugh over it.
 
2014-01-16 11:31:51 AM

K, so I am glad she got her hair back and all.  But does the round faced person in the video in any way resemble the photo at the very beginning?  Not sure its the same person.

Also, for whatever reason, my mom's once stick straight, course hair came back baby fine and super curly after chemo.  Slightly different color, too.  Weird.

I was starting to go bald when I started chemo -- decided hair is overrated anyway :)

If she's beating it, the hair will grow back on her palms.

I agree,  but it is one of the conundrums of the ages.  Those with straight hair want curly hair and those with straight hair want curls.

That's the carpet. The hair on the top of the head is the drapes. Get it straight, man.

It's actually called chemo curls, sometimes people with naturally straight hair have it grow back curly following chemotherapy.

I'll ask for my window seat first, however...

Why is she "brave" for not dying of cancer?  Totally awesome that she didn't die, but that doesn't mean she's brave.  She could be a stark raving coont for all we know.  Or maybe a super nice lady, but a total and complete coward who has an obsession with taking selfies.

I dunno, I just always thought the word "brave" should be reserved for people who do voluntarily put themselves in harm's way for others.  Not so sure time lapse photography qualifies.

You really need to have cancer to understand this, my wife for example was convinced "stage 4 breast cancer" and the fact it "traveled" slight to her lungs etc that she was going to die, she was convinced of it.
Her a year ago and her now are two totally different people, she's alive and vibrant. I'm sure most cancer survivors will tell you it takes a tough soul and a brave person to face death and get through it.

Honestly it took more of a wreck on me, then it did her if anything would of happened to her I would of ended up committing suicide because I don't see a world without her.

She's a HERO for having bad luck and getting sick.  Just like firefighters who enter burning buildings to save people, or soldiers who fight off bad guys.   HERO, I say.   Because it takes a village.   And the children.

Really, really, really happy she survived.  And sorry for the insensitive tone; I've been closely acquainted with death in my own family, including both parents while young and a daughter.  Maybe my bias is that I've never seen anyone survive, just die, and maybe on some level I resent the honor bestowed on those who have survived.

Pragmatically, if you really want actually help the planet, just die if you get cancer.

We have more than enough people on the planet and the resources used to give you another day could be put to better use.

I think the "brave" part is facing the surgeries and treatments. Sometimes just surviving requires a lot of bravery.

I actually used to feel this way too.  Why were people proud of women and praising them for being strong and whatnot when all they really did was just not die.  Then I met a bunch.  Let me start with your own definition:

the word "brave" should be reserved for people who do voluntarily put themselves in harm's way for others.

The voluntarily in harms way bit is electing to go through chemo/radiation/surgery.  You can also choose not to.  The "for others" bit is for their family, whether it be a spouse, kids, their siblings or their parents.

Now a year ago I would have said "they aren't exactly volunteering to do it and what a shock, they are choosing to do something that will actually HELP them medically."  It's not really that easy.  You don't go through chemo in a vacuum, you go through chemo while you're still working (gotta pay for it somehow), while you're still a wife or a mother or taking classes.  It's not just that chemo or radiation makes you tired, it's also a giant pain in the ass.  Radiation is 5 days a week for weeks.  So you're juggling a job and kids which was plenty as it is and now a doctor is telling you that you have to commute your ass there every day M-F for about a 30-45 minute appointment for weeks.  If all you did was get radiation and go home to nap all day long, you'd still be exhausted, yet you have to get to work and then home to get the kids.

So it has been 3 weeks of waking up at the crack ass of dawn to go get your radiation treatment, 5 days a week, while working full time at Costco and then going home to take care of the kids.  You're exhausted, it's Friday and you've got a test on Monday because you want to be a nurse, not a Costco clerk for the rest of your life.  So now you've got a choice, do you go to chemo Monday and show up to the exam exhausted possibly ruining your future, or do you skip chemo and slightly increase your chances of the cancer recurring and killing you?

The brave part isn't surviving.  The brave part is showing up on Monday.

You do not require a window seat to hell, you are one of the very few people in this thread who are looking at this rationally. There is nothing brave about getting sick. Getting treatment is purely an act of self-preservation. People do not battle cancer. Getting sick does not make someone a hero.

I have never, ever wanted curls.



You might want to consult your pubes on that executive decision.

Had an Aunt die of breast cancer that she knew about and hid until about a few weeks before she died -- was too afraid to even confront the fact that she was having obviously fatal problems.  So, yeah, I can see there's bravery involved in facing down cancer.

One of the side effects of chemo cnn be bloating - and obviously she used to straighten her hair.
