Hi Lillie, I really need your help with this one. My mom was recieving whole brain radiation. She completed 11 rounds and then chose not to have any more treatments because the side effects were very severe. Now, it has been nearly two months since the last treatment and she has had NO re-growth of hair. In addition, we are very concerened because the specialist administring the radiation failed to tell us about all the possible side effects. We have become educated on this on what we have read on the internet. My question is this: Does WBRT cause permenant hair loss? Is that a rare side effect? Also, is there a large percentage of people who will suffer the long term side effects within 2 years? We believe that there is professional liability on the part of the specialist by failing to tell us about the side effects she will experience later. I am hoping you will tell me that these serious side effects are rare. Permanent hair loss will be extremly hard for my mom. Her developing dementia or radiation necrosis in a year will be even worse. Thank you for creating this site for people like me who have no where else to turn for help and advice. Although it is my mom suffering with this horrible disease, I am suffering in my own way right along with her. I look forward to your response.

A: hair loss is a common and anticipated side effects of whole brain radiation and it is permanent usually. so sorry... of course you are both suffering. this is a disease that effects everyone who loves the patient. so get her some beautiful turbons and a wig that is as close of a match to her natural hair-- make sure it is a ''breathable'' wig so her scalp isn''t irritated by sweat since we are now into summer... the radiation oncologist''s mission in giving her radiation was to buy her some time. she is in a situation that is very worrisome as you know. time with her is precious. i''m sure she values every moment she has with you....
