Alopecia?? 8 Years, 4 Months ago  
I had brain surgery on 6th September to remove a grede 2 oligoastrocytoma. It went well and I am recovering well at home. My question is this, I had scabs on my scalp where my bandages were on the opposite side to where I had my suregery and when they fell off my hair came out. So I had two bald patches on the left side of my head. They have now been 'joined' together by a further bald patch makin one massive one
The only thing my husband and I can think of is that it's alopecia after all the stress my body has been through. Has anyone else had experience of this? If so, may I ask how you treated it? Could it be alopecia? Will try to go to my GP but getting an appointment is like waiting for Christmas!
Thanks

Hi,

sam, i had about 6 scabs as you described, these were off the cage screws used to keep my head in place during the operation.I did suffer from baldness around these areas but i put this down to chemo and radiotherapy. Hope this helps

Hi Kevin,
Thank you for your reply. I have a doctors appointment tonight but I think I have found the cause - hair loss is a side effect of the anti-seizure tablets I am taking so fingers crossed that's what it is. I've got little hairs showing some regrowth too so I feel a bit happier about this now
Thanks again
Sam
