Taxotere Hair Loss – Living with Difficult Choices

by John Gomez | Last Updated: May 25, 2016

We’ve been working to raise awareness of emerging reports relating to alleged Taxotere hair loss and the harm this development inflicts on women. Many women are considering filing a Taxotere lawsuit, because they were never made aware of the fact they faced the possibility of permanent hair loss.  While many defective drugs lawyers will handle cases where people are killed or face such diabolical situations as organ failure and/or the need for constant medical oversight for the rest of their lives, permanent hair loss for women is a very damaging situation.  Below are just a few examples of the difficult situations women who are living with permanent hair loss must face every day.

Style Changes

Many women do not really worry about their hair all that much when they decide how they’d like to dress in general, as their hair is simply part of their overall style and look.  They make sure that their hair is properly styled of course, but few women are forced to think about what they would wear in any given situation if they are bald.  Given the relative rarity of this difficult situation, there are no easy answers that are readily available.  Every outfit could be questioned, every style choice could be revisited and many women have felt completely helpless with something that should be simple – getting dressed in the morning or for an evening.

Wig or No Wig?

Women who do lose their hair on a permanent basis need to decide if they are going to simply allow themselves to live openly without hair or if they are going to purchase a wig.  Choosing the right wig for someone can be very difficult for several different reasons.  First, there is the cost to consider, as wigs can easily run into the thousands of dollars before everything is just right.  Secondly, women who wear wigs will have to worry about changing their hairstyles from time to time and endure the constant worry of having something go wrong with their wigs in front of others.  This is stressful, but for many it’s still better than walking around with no hair.

Lowered Self-Esteem

Finally, women who lose their hair permanently will have to figure out a way to deal with what will likely be a much lower level of self-esteem.  Living with low self-esteem can lead to other bad decisions and in some cases it can lead to severe depression.  Women who have lost their hair permanently need to seek out help from mental health professionals if they feel overwhelmed with their sudden loss of hair that will never grow back.  There are also support groups out there, as we’ve previously noted.

Taxotere Hair Loss and Your Legal Rights

Women who are forced to live with permanent Taxotere hair loss also need to make sure that they take steps to evaluate their legal rights and options.  If you or someone you love has used Taxotere and you have lost your hair permanently, contact a Taxotere lawyer at the Gomez Trial Attorneys today to schedule a free initial consultation so that you can make an informed decision regarding how you should proceed.
