Post chemo hair ....everywhere!!
Both chemos, my pubes all fell out, apart from a weird tonsure on the outside of my bikini line. OK, I know tonsure only applies to scalps, but there is no equivalent word for which I will, just trying to be civilized (I struggle) refer to as the lady garden. Garden indeed. Roundupped in the middle and flourishing across the fence. Years later, I've got a bloody jungle halfway to my knees but only OUTSIDE ME KNICKERS.
Like a chimney standing where a house burnt down--as a reminder of where the fire should have been--I still view my reverse brazillian with amusement. WTAF?
I needed that laugh. I love your description - roundupped in the middle and flourishing over the fence! Beautiful. I must say I enjoyed very much 6 months of no shaving anywhere - but I was excited when it all started coming back. Lady garden and all. But, not on my face.

If you do nothing (as I did) the white face fuzz can settle down. It did for me. Someone here explained that you had all this hair before but it was worn down by a lifetime of pillows.
As for the lady garden, well after chemo mine regrew and flourished... except for a sparsely populated tonsure in the middle! I kid you not. Truly weird.
