I'd go with the Norelco Rotary too...

Remember the old Roll-a-matic?

Normally I use a blade.. On rare occasions I use a 3-head rotary. but not a norelco (cheaper)

I got him a Norelco a couple of years ago for Christmas and had to return it,unopened. He doesn't like them,but then I'm sure in years past they have improved!

I have only been using an electric for a couple of months now and have had great luck with a Panasonic ES8243. It is wet/dry and shaves quickly and smoothly. It is rated quite high too.

Get the Norelco three head rotary, Tom. Remington also makes a similar style but from my experience it wasn't as good as the Norelco.

Men

I have been using an electric shaver for 30 years now and I started out with Norelco but have found the brand of Braun electric shavers have worked the best for me. I have a 5 series that is self cleaning, you dock it in the cleaning station and it runs cleaning fluid through the cutting heads and cutting screen and also charges the battery. so you always have a clean and fully charged razor to shave with the next morning.

Depending on the type of chemo that says how often you have to shave. When I first started mine I lost my hair and didn't have to shave for about 2 months now I just use the cheap Norelco I got at Wally World every other day. I will go back to the razor in about a month I hope 1 more scheduled treatment and the test to be sure its gone.

Hang in there.

I had been a Panasonic wet/dry user for many years, but when I had to replace the last one, I fund the current one was almost three times the price of the one that had just died. It died because water had found its way through the seals and shorted out the controller.

I bought a Braun 340 wet/dry and am very happy with it - 2 years on.

Tom,
No matter what brand shaver you go for, try to avoid the price leader models sold at discount stores. I know Norelco makes a variety of models. My current ones (one in the house, the other in the camper) weren't cheap but they've been going for almost 10 years and still shave close.
