Eat as much Protein as possible. I had hairloss around the third month it lasted for about two months. I ended up cutting my hair short. But now it’s fine.

My hair after i cut I cut it off and my hair now.

Take Biotin and silica and eat a lot of Protein. I neglected myself for a while after my surgery and didn’t eat or take my Vitamins and my hair fell out like crazy but I’ve been taking. All my vitamins plus biotin, silica and it’s helping my hair fall out less, my nails used to be real flimsy and now they are growing pretty strong

I have long hair too and potential Hair loss is totally freaking me out. I meet my Protein goal nearly every day in hopes of not experiencing hair loss, but I know it's still possible/likely [emoji22]

I personally had minimal Hair loss. I am African American and have always been blessed with extremely thick, long nearly waist length hair. Hair loss was my biggest fear. In my mind my hair was coming out by the handful. When in reality it wasn't. No one noticed. Not even the hair stylist I see bi-weekly. The shedding lasted about 2 months maybe. I faithfully took 10,000 milligrams of Biotin daily and tried to get my Protein in. I'm currently 10 months out. About 120 pounds down total. My hair has completely bounced back plus some. A childhood neighbor had the sleeve 6 months prior to my rny. She had to literally shave her head. This completely freaked me out. According to my sister I didn't loose any because we have good hair genes.LOL. I say it was a lot of prayer and hair treatments. Aside from the biotin I looked on you tube and made all kinds of protein concoctions weekly. I also added Vitamin e oil to my conditioner. Good luck!!!

OMG Girl, me too..... My Dr told me there is nothing we can do about it....I am in mourning, but I refuse to cut it. I just got a halo hair extension and am wearing it. I am trying Keranique and a Biotin spray and Shampoo I got at Sally Beauty. Plus I up'd my Biotin to 1000mg/day along with a multi Vitamin. My surgeon and my PCP told me it has nothing to do with Protein. Your body goes into suspension during surgery. It is just part of the process (said by people who are not losing their hair)

Update on my massive hair loss.....7 months post surgery and the Hair loss has stopped!! THANK GOD. It started about 3 months post surgery. I was losing hair like I was on chemo. Was taking multi Vitamins, 10,000mg of Biotin and using Biotin spray on my scalp and somehow, the combination of this all worked. My hair is growing like mad now :) I told my surgeon that they really need to be more vocal to pre surgery patients that this is one of the post surgery side affects for some patients.

I noticed at WallyWorld they have in the Vitamin/getb aisle a formulation for hair and nails, must be more prevalent than I realized before[emoji44]

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss
