Well, I'm only 7 months, and I first noticed it around 3.5 months. It hasn't stopped yet. So I clicked 3-6 months for how long it lasted because there isn't a choice for STILL LOSING hair. :D

Yep, I lost it in buckets (well, it seemed like it) and right around the 8th month it slowed down and I'm shedding at a normal rate now, I think. :)

I haven't had surgery yet, but I was told by my surgeon that it is a lack of protien I am not sure what type of diet your doctor has you on I would talk to them about it.

Actually, it's due to two things -- the anesthesia and the rapid weight loss -- almost everyone who has had weight loss surgery has had SOME amount of Hair loss -- I don't believe I have seen anyone who has not.

Most hair loss starts around the 3rd month post op. . . .

I'm 4 months out now and someone needs to get Kim Zolciak on the phone because before it's all said & done I think I'm gonna need one of her wigs. This surgery is gonna swipe me bald headed I swear. :rolleyes:

All silliness aside, I've only started the Hair loss in the last couple of weeks. I don't think anything we do can stop it. When I went to get my hair cut a couple months ago, the girl who cut my hair was like "ya... it IS going to happen". I've done all of that.. kept my Protein good, Biotin, even the olive oil & doing good on Vitamins... nothing. I think the best we can hope for is sales on floppy hats & bandanas and a new head of hair to go with our new bodies.

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
