Lomustine hair loss (alopecia) experience

Hi all

Wondering if anyone who has taken lomustine or CCNU experienced hair loss or low-grade alopecia as a result. If so, could you share the experience, how much loss, how long did it take for hair to grow back, etc.

  1. Greetings,

    I know a young man who took CCNU and Temodal (4 cycles) and did not not loose his hairs; in opposite, they beautifully mostly recovered after initial chemotherapy, radiation and Temodal. Only the color has changed to deep black - the natural colour was much lighter. He did not loose hairs even after next rounds of chemo (different). Unfortunately, hairs did not fully recovered around surgery and radiotherapy field.

    Kind regards,
