Obviously I am thrilled! No Hair loss no problems. I still take my Bariatric Advantage Vitamin crystals every day, and have added booting, and collogen to my daily Vitamins. Couldn't't be happier! Now for maintaining this weight. If I can do it anyone can. I had my surgery in Marinara del Ray. With Dr. Korman. He is the best! :-)

Really jealous that you've managed to skip Hair loss. Happy for you, but jealous none the less. I really had hoped I'd be able to do the same, but as I sit here nearly bald on the top of my head, that has certainly not been the case. I have not heard of the Vitamin crystals or about taking collagen. Going to have to look into both. What type of collagen are you taking and is that for hair loss or skin elasticity? Thanks!

I take "Bariatric advantage berry crystals", Biotin, collgon (the one for skin. Biotin is for hair and nails. I take a lot of Vitamins and eat a lot of Protein. I actually do not exercise very much do to a back injury. Now that I'm able to see...I know that weight loss is 90% diet. Simple as that. We need to feed our perfect machines. I do cheat I just don't eat a lot of it. :-)

Congrats on your success! I take Biotin also find I haven't had any hairloss. I want to stay taking the collagen also but I don't know what brand to take. Which one do you use? And have you seen any results from it?

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
