Teeth falling apart

Last reply: 8 years ago

Over the last few months my teeth have been falling apart. Has this happened anyone else? I had 6 months of chemo and 33 sessions of RT. Finished this last year. It has been a bit of a shock as I look after them!!

I have had problems with my gums and toothaches. I went through chemo and33 radio with no problems but since treatment finished have had issues. I finished treatment at end of February with just herceptin until June. Also my hair is not growing back beginning to bother me at this stage.

Hope your teeth are starting to settle and life is treating you well.

Look after yourself

Thanks for your reply Madge. I had 6 months of chemo and 33 r.t. It takes the hair a while to come back to what it was. mine has come back really curlly! When the rain comes I have to cover it up as one part is straight(blowed dried straight) and some of it curly. I trimed it a few times before I let it grow a bit longer.
