How exciting! It must feel strange,  and a whole new experience learning to deal with it when is longer:) How long did it take to grow to that length?

Hi @Londonmumof2,

I finish chemo end of April. I think it started growing bk about 6-8 weeks after that so it’s taken about 3 and a 1/2 Months to get to this length. 

It’s a mess but it’s hair lol.

Hope you are doing well x
