Didn't lose any hair!


16 posts in this topic

I am seven months out and I did not lose any hair... I think I am in the clear??

If I am then I totally think it is a crap shoot to if you lose it or not. I did not hit my Protein goals for a few months after surgery- i was pretty sick for about 6 weeks and didn't eat hardly anything- and my dr is very laid back about Protein goals in the beginning. anyway/ I did take Biotin a month before surgery and every day since but besides that I have not been a model patient.

All that to just say- I think it's all a crap shoot on hair loss.

You ladies are lucky. I have really thick hair & one month & a week into this, I haven't lost hair. And I'm off & on with reaching my Protein goals. No Biotin. It's refreshing to see it doesn't happen to everyone. I hope I'll be like you ladies & not lose hair.

I did in the beginning- I was freaked out because I never had before!!! I was convinced I was going to have to change to a bypass- or get throat cancer ( I am dramatic) it wasn't waking me up at night or choking me like some
People but it was lots of
Bubbles in my throat and burping and burning a little at night- went away about 6 months!!!

I lost some hair but it isn't noticeable because I have a lot. It thinned out which makes it much quicker to blow dry. i didn't take Biotin because I was told hair will grow where you don't want it to, like your face, arms, etc. Not sure if this is true or not.

My hair started thinning the 5th month. A small price to pay for feeling 100% better in my knees, back and hip! Had it cut short and really liking how easy it is to style in the morning.
