Breast cancer FAQs

Is it normal to feel exhausted and want to sleep more than normal?

Absolutely. Your immune system is compromised, your body is working overtime, and chemo wrecks any semblance of normalcy you’re used to. Sleep when you’re tired. Take naps. If working from home, move from your desk to the couch or bed to relax a bit while you work. Take it easy while still maintaining your day-to-day.

When cold capping, how often should I wash my hair?

Once per week at most. The more often you wash, the more hair you’ll lose.
