How long will it take for my eyebrows to grow back after chemo?

In brief: Variable

Eyebrows are frequently the last to go with hair damaging chemo.
Re-growth is the rule although frequently not as thick as the originals. Your body has to rid itself of the chemo which can take several weeks and then the brows, eyelashes and head hair have a chance at recovery. Be patient but it may take up to six months to know where you will be.
