I can vouch for the effectiveness of the frozen cap in connection with chemotherapy treatment for cancer and resulting hair-loss (Write Back, April 1).
Almost 19 years ago I had to have some urgent and drastic surgery — no time for preliminary chemo treatment.
After the operation and from day one of the chemotherapy I wore the cap. It was just like a shower-cap and stored after each treatment in a freezer compartment.
I wore it for about two hours
at each session. It was somewhat weighty on the head to begin with, but I soon got used to it.
I can truthfully say I never lost a single hair during my chemo treatment.
