I am at two years. I started losing my (very thick and waste length) hairaround 4 months. I STILL am losing more than before surgery. I had to cut off my hair as it was looking stringy. I now have short hairs growng in, and they are kind of finer texture than before. I plan on growing my hair out again if the texture normalizes. This being said, as proud as I used to be about my hair, its still worth it losing all that weight! I might even cut it REALLY short, like as long as the shortest hairs, and go from there. Might have to go BLUE or something! Its part of the adventure.

Do every1 loose hair pls help very concerned

I think the majority of us will experience Hair loss. There might be Vitamins, minerals, supplements, tiger blood and dark magic that may help manage it, but I think some loss is inevitable.

On the positive side, I think I'm going to have fun with all sorts of diff wigs :D

Just wondering if anyone has actually experienced minimal Hair loss after their surgery? Or should I expect to be bald after my surgery, I am really scared about this as I have super thin hair already and a bald spot on the side of my head from when I was a kid! This scares me more than having the surgery on the 9th.

It's very frustrating when nutritionists and doctors are telling patients if they do everything by the book they won't lose hair bc that's just NOT the case. I started Biotin and all required Vitamins 3 months prior to surgery and have followed that regimen to a T. I also take zinc daily and have been using top of the line hair products (shampoo and conditioner) along with two different conditioning treatments (one with keratin and one without) after showering and I'm telling you, my hair is falling out faster than I can type this message. Because of how attached I was to my hair, I have taken EVERY precaution and here we are anyways. I would normally be fine with wigs, etc., but in my line of work it will be difficult to keep a wig on. The whole thing is super frustrating and especially these professionals giving false information to those of us who are asking for guidance. Grrr. Anyways, I meet with my stylist (from a very high end salon) on Wednesday and she is doing some type of scalp treatment and supposedly has some miracle vitamin/supplement to introduce me to. I'll be sure to check back and keep you all posted. Hopefully some of us can report that the loss has stopped at some point soon. Hang in there ladies! :) I'm trying to have an "it'll be ok day" bc I was freaking out about this on Wednesday. ;)

I feel your pain. I started Biotin 3 months prior to surgery and I am still losing hair at an alarming rate. Surgery was 9/4 and Hair loss started in Dec. Those of you who are newly sleeved and saying you're not losing hair yet...just wait. :( Mine started at exactly 3 months after surgery and has become horrid. I have no actual bald spots -yet-' date=' but I worry they're coming bc my hair is getting alarmingly thin. Seeing my stylist Wed to talk about possible extensions or a wig. I'm a basket case bc I really want it to stop! So sad...good luck, but I have done all Vitamins and Proteins right and it still happened. I think we just have to suffer through and one day it will stop. Ugh...[/quote']

There is always extensions. Good ones are a little pricey but they are worth it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
