I have the same thing. I wish the Hair loss would stop, and my scalp weren't so sensitive.

Do u wear your hair back in a pony tail?? Bc that could be another reason as to why

No I make it a point not to. It literally feels like I banged my head and it's bruised. My husband yells that my hair is EVERYWHERE, it's even woven into his uniform lol

I knew the hair falling out was part of the game, but this tender scalp is well tender!

My hair is falling out so bad. I hate even combing it. It is everywhere as well. The dog and I are seeing who can shed the most and I am winning. :(

Just 2 weeks ago i was going through the same thing. Major tenderness in scalp with scaps. This was due to the major amounts of hair falling out like Water during the shower, then right after shower when i was brushing it then through out the day when i would tug it. Ive always had fine hair and not much hair to begin with so this was a huge problem for me, it was falling at a crazy y rate and in just 1 month think i lost like half my hair. It shows big time on the front and sides.

Since i was sleeved back in Dec, ive drank like 5000mg of Biotin daily, then two weeks ago (after crying my ass off seeing my scalp) i bought these pills called Hair, Skin & Nails. The directions are to drink 1 tablet 3x a day. A drink one after Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Well this week is the 3rd week and i am starting to see difference. To start with, no more tenderness or scabs and less hair feel out in the shower and during brushing. This week i was even able to blow dry my hair and not much came out. Also when i tug it during the day, about 3-4 strands come out, compared to the bulks that came out before.

I hope i am not jinxing myself for talking too soon but i think these pills are working. Give them a try ASAP. Heres the pic. If you try them f/u with me for results.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
