Is there anyone who DIDN'T lose their hair?



Recommended Posts

I know there has been many topics about Hair loss and I know that hair loss should really be a very minor problem to the huge benefit of surgery and weight loss...But but but, I really love my hair! Ha ha... Just curious if everyone loses their? Most lose their hair? Or, some lose their hair?

I lost hair, but not that it was noticeable. I do have a lot of hair, which helped, but my hair stylist was on high alert and he let me know any loss I had was minimal.

I haven't lost any of my hair. I think I mostly attribute this to the fact that when I was cleared to start purée and soft foods 2 weeks post op, I ate clean, wholesome food. I never ate fat free/low fat or sugar free. I would cook my own grass fed meat and have it with avocados or when I cooked eggs I made sure to use a bit of coconut oil or butter. When I puréed butternut squash, I roasted it in a tsp coconut oil first. In my first two weeks post op I couldn't tolerate a stitch of Protein and all I had was very diluted lipton ice tea. That was all I couldn't tolerate. I only started Biotin after 8 weeks post op. Everyone is so different but I have been lucky. I'm now 7 months post op and still not a stitch of Hair loss. I have also highlighted my hair twice since surgery with no problem. I use loreal professional Shampoo so nothing special in that either!! Don't sweat the small things and it will all turn out ok.

I lost a lot of hair but had thick mane so it's OK. Worse is the fact that 4 months out have only lost 20 pounds, feel dizzy and unable to function most of day. Two patients had same problem but I didn't listen. Soooooo obsessed with not being fat.

I'm close to suicide to be over this. DON'T DO iT!! Before the surgery, I enjoyed life. Now I just hope I die in my sleep or hope a crazy sniper kills me

Am I reading this correctly? Suicide? Dying in sleep? I'm so confused. Regardless of how we look on the outside, we each hold a beauty so profound. Yes, there are things we cannot do or maybe just too lazy but that should be your motivation. I can't wait to have surgery. I want to go on a cruise and travel. You say you only last 20 pounds in 4 months but that's 20 pounds less with the surgery. If you need to talk please inbox me. Hugs from NY my sister sleever.

I lost very little hair. but just know that 20 lbs is better than no pounds at all. Hang on there, it will get better. Try doing some cardio which will help you with your weight loss. Good luck & I'm routing for you!

I managed to keep all my hair until the four month mark. I am now six months out and the shedding has stopped and I'm just not so patiently waiting for regrowth. I had painfully thin and fine hair to begin with so every single strand is precious to me! Currently my hair is about as thin as it was when my hypothyroid was untreated and at its worst.

This scares me so much for you. I hope that you take the time to find someone to talk to so that you can resolve the physical issues that you are having along with the psychological pain that you are experiencing.

You have a beautiful grandchild to live for and you will get better if you work at it. You have a long beautiful road ahead of you, it sounds like you need a little help finding your way there.

I'm 4 1/2 months out, and no Hair loss (yet, knock on wood). I was able to get my calories up to average of 900 per day pretty early on with good clean food. I have half an avocado in a green smoothie every day (my smoothies also have green leafy veggies and fruit). I take Biotin daily, and early on i was able to meet my Fluid and Protein goals. I have a lot of hair so if i lose some it is all good.

But i am hoping that i will be like sanks51!

Yes I definitely attribute my hair not falling out due to good clean food and a little bit of healthy fat.. At least two of us didn't loose hair :)

Interesting, I also have a diet rich in clean and healthy fats though I had not previously made a connection between that and my great hair! It seems like they could be connected though. I didn't take Biotin or anything like that and use a standard salon range of products (KMS) so nothing special. I also continued cutting, dying, and styling my hair as normal.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
