Surgery date was Aug 6th and notice that my hair is falling out now. Ridiculously thin. I've been a Vitamin junkie but not helping. Need to figure out how to style it. Always had sexy hair but nit now. What to do? Look like an old lady. Oh and now a saggy chicken neck thing going on. Ugh. Still beets being fat.

I'm a 8/21 sleever. My past my shoulder thick hair got thin and icky at about 3 months. I went online and found a layered cute bob cut. Do a search for hairstyles for the shape of your face.

My hair is now getting thick again and the look isn't quite as cute w thick hair. Lol.

I'd say find a cute cut, and have your hairdresser just cut it. The layers covered up my bald spots. And highlights also help.

I got sleeved on 11th October. Previous to surgery by about 6 months my hair was thinner than it had ever been - I was low in b2 Vitamin it was discovered, due to having had a balloon in for about 10 months in total. I started taking all the vitamin supplements that I can get my hands on - predominantly b Vitamins, also Biotin and extra b2 - using hair thickening Shampoo and conditioner too - I'm hoping against hope that my hair doesn't thin again - as it is currently thicker than its ever been. Great idea about changing hair style - will be keeping this in mind! So basically, the only advice I can give is try biotin supplements.. hope you find something that works for you.

I swear by the Biotin.. it takes about a good month of using it regular, but it did stop my Hair loss. & with a shorter hair style, it's less noticeable.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
