    Hair Loss

    I started to lose my hair at 2.5 months out in fists full. I started to take a supplement (chewable) from gnc called b-beautiful and it helped but not with hair loss but with regrowth. It is kind of pricey but it goes on sale and I stock up The best part is that it stops and all my hair is back just as it was before. Short time side effect and well worth the healthy life!

    My experience was that pre-op I was constipated because of the Protein. post op my body took a while to work things out. I came home from the hospital with milk of magnesia but that was very rough on my...it made me RUN to the bathroom. I wanted something that was a bit gentler so I used mirlax and after a few weeks things worked out. and only occasionally happened after that...and I just went back to a few days of mirlax and I was back to myself. From my surgeons team...constipation is very common. That being said...if you arent getting you Fluid...keep trying. I used a timmer on my phone to remind me to drink...set it after eating and when it goes off...start drinking. Really helped me...still do it sometimes.

    3 Month Post Op Visit

    Well...look at it this way. If there is something off then now is the time to find out and do something about it. I pray you are right on track but if not let them give you all the help you may need to be healthy...isnt that why you had the surgery? Let us know how it goes!

    What Were Your Best Foods To Eat Post Op

    Defintaly loved s/f pudding...didnt do well with applesauce. Loved sf pudding pops, sf jello, chicken broth...once I moved on to solids stage...my favortie food was and still is turkey meatballs. At almost 2 years out I still have a protein shake just about everyday.

    My Protein Shake Panacea

    Just a couple of thoughts...One thing I learned is that if I mix my protein shake and put it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight it was not frothy, it was smooth and well mixed. Also, after surgery my tastes changed drastically. When I was pre-op trying to loss required weight I used the syntex but after I couldnt stand it...so dont put stock in a company and make sure you buy it from a place you can return unused portion if you dont like it. Also, I am almost 2 years out and I still drink protein shakes just about everyday, so I have tried many combos and you dont have to stick to one thing. Hope that helps. Also, it was like 4 months before I hit my protein goal in one day.
  13. I have been MIA for a month but wanted to say life is good at almost 20 months out! Love living this life.

    What The He Double Hockey Sticks

    What ever you buy you need to get it from a place you can return them if you dont like them. It all depends on your tastes. GNC has a great return policy. I prefer Gold Standard 100% Whey from ON. I like strawberry and Cookies and cream was pretty good too. The milk chocolate was good mixed with PB2 but it was gritty. I didnt like the bananna. Hope that helps.

    Thoughts On Hair Loss?

    I lost from 3 months to 9 months...tons and tons....but I was always a hair shedder anyway. You know my brush always had hair in it and there is always hair on the counter or floor after I brush it. I did get worried but then I just realized that I would rather wear a wig and live a long healthy life than be dead at 45 of a heart attack. I started taking a gnc chew called B-beautiful and I stopped using Panteen shampoos (according to my stylist is a problem for people with hair loss). The chew doesnt stop hair loss but I think it helped with regrowth and made my hair healthy and my nails grow. I have continued to take it even though my hair loss has stopped completely and my hair is back to where it was pre surgery.

    I felt just like this ALL through my losing phase! It is most likely a bit of dehydration and the fact that you are living off very few calories now. It was strange one day it was there then suddenly it was gone. I never passed out but came real close a few times. I got used to getting up slowly and just standing still for a second before trying to move some where. Are you getting in enough fluids?

    When Did You Try Salad?

    I did not have salad until 6 months post -op. It was my surgeon's rule for by-pass patients so I just didnt want to try it too early. Same with nuts and any thing with a shell or skin like grapes.
