Due to the advancements in cancer treatment, many people have become able to return to their normal lives. However, there are some people who have suffered side effects that affect their quality of life moving forward.
That being said, most people suffered permanent hair loss or Alopecia due to the most popular chemotherapy drug Taxotere. Though temporary hair fall is a common side effect of chemotherapy, most patients expect their hair will regrow.

Many patients prefer Taxotere than other chemotherapy drugs because it only had to be employed once every three weeks where other chemotherapy drugs were need to administered weekly.
But people who have taken Taxotere to treat breast cancer were not aware of the side effects. This is because Sanofi (the drug manufacturer) hide its side effects to doctors or patients in the United States and market Taxotere as the best chemo drug than any other chemo drug.
Taxotere lawsuits state that Sanofi informed of permanent hair loss on their name in France, but hide it in the U.S. If patients had been warned, they might have chosen another chemo drug that comes with a much smaller risk of permanent hair loss.
Losing hair can be an extremely difficult situation to accept. For cancer patients with permanent baldness, it would be a permanent reminder of their disease journey.
In fact, the pain and embarrassment for the rest of life can greatly affect a cancer patient’s quality of life. Do not forget to read this post that states Sanofi underplayed dangers of chemo drug.
Though there is currently no recognized treatment for permanent hair loss caused by Taxotere, breast cancer survivors may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering. It is highly recommended for cancer survivors to talk to a Taxotere lawyer that have the best reputation.
