    How did you deal with hair loss?

    I wore a sew in for about 6 weeks. So much hair came out and my temples thinned. Go with the wig. I haven't had much luck with wigs. My hair dresser said we're going to start doing deep condition treatments no weekly and roller setting the hair. I always had thin hair, but I had length and I could never see my scalp. I still have length, but I can definitely see my scalp more on the top. I'm starting biotin as well.

    March 10th!

    Congrats on your date! Mine is March 12th. I feel like the days are dragging! I just try to keep busy and not to obsess about it because it's like torturing myself. Best wishes to you!
  4. My surgery date is March 12th. I just had my pre admission testing done yesterday and I have my clearance physical this morning. This is the last thing. I am hoping things go well and I can just make it to the date. I am anxious and nervous. I would love to have buddies, too. :-)

    New in town :)

    Welcome! You'll find varied age ranges here. I went to a support group in November and there was no one under 40 there. I'm 32 and scheduled for surgery March 12th. If you have questions or want to chat, let me know. I've been through the initial consultation, 5 months of the 6 month supervised diet ( required by my insurance), psych eval and re-consultation so far. I have appointments every week until my surgery date. It's a challenging process but I'm looking forward to the day.
