3 months Post Op .... Hair Loss



Recommended Posts

I'm starting to experience hair loss... do any of you champs know when it stops? Is it a whole year of Hair loss? Or just a couple months? I'm just curious... I'm taking my Vitamins religiously I just feel there's no going around it. Hair loss is gonna happen I just wanna know what other have experienced as far as time frame or the hair loss! Thanks loves!

I have noticed more hair coming out lately, I was hoping to avoid this phase as well. As long as I don't get patchy, I'll be okay. 😨

I'm 8 months out and it's still coming out in chunks... holding on to hope that it will stop soon. Probably not related, but with winter here, I'm also unbelievably cold all the time.

Oh no I’m sorry. I hope your Hair loss stops too. Not sure if we’re allowed extra B Vitamins? Unlikely ... Well we don’t have a winter in Southern California, but I’m always cold too. That’s definitely from the diet .. I was always burning up before , from high blood sugar.

B Vitamins are Water soluble so you can't really OD on them. You just pee out any excess.

Oh okay. Yeah I figured you pee it out. I just figured if my Vitamin pack says it had 200% daily value, then it’s enough? I’ll have to check that label for the B vitamin, and then ask my doctor what to do... no sense in taking more Vitamins when I’ll pee it out.. the Hair loss has always been an issue , even back in my thin days when I took a million vitamins and ate a very very high Protein diet. Weight lifted and stuff.

My hair started to fall out at 3 months post op. I lost hair for a full 6 months. I'm 9 month post op now and it finally stopped. I tried everything. Got in all my Protein, took Biotin, and tried the nioxin hair treatment but nothing helped. I lost at least half of my volume of hair and it looked terrible. So yesterday I went and got it all cut off. The day of surgery my hair was down to my butt and now it's up to my ears but I love it and it looks healthier. Before surgery you know there is a chance it can happen but when it happens to you it can be alarming and depressing but I just had to remind myself often that it's temporary. So that's my experience with Hair loss.

Fish oil? The docs put me on that but I’m still fairly new and nothing has happened as of yet. But my thyroid makes mine fall out anyway.

Mine didn't start coming out until about 4 months out.It is depressing at first, but you have to remember it's a temporary trade. I'm using some great hair products and boxley Shampoo to help. And it will return eventually. But it pushed me to get a great cut[emoji4] And that helped allot. I may not have long thick hair anymore but I also don't have those 76 pounds

I’ll definitely trade some of my thick hair temporarily for the 51lbs I lost. Good point.

Yes, and hopefully the hair will return but not the pounds![emoji4]
