    Eyelashes and eyebrows grow back quickly but mine were not as full. Congrats on being done treatment.

    Yep, didn't lose my brows & lashes until after I was done. They came in right away, but very thin. Prayers to you.

    I never totally lost mine but they both have thinned out, I'm a year out of chemo.

    Mine grew back before I even had time to adjust without them . My eyebrows had thinned a lot and I didn't realize it until those parts started to grow back, because they were darker. Eye lashes were gone for like 2 weeks, but started to come right back because i lost them after I was done with chemo

    I was the same way, a few eyelashes hung around until after chemo ended. About 3 weeks later everything was gone. They came back slowly but surely and when I started using Latisse they came back quickly. It's a bit expensive and you need an RX from one of your Docs, I got mine from the plastic surgeon but well worth it in my option. Gave me a sense of normalcy back. Best to you.
