When did you start losing hair?



Recommended Posts

I'm only a week out from my surgery and obviously haven't seen any signs of Hair loss, but it's something I'm not looking forward to :( when did you start noticing your hair loss?

Google Telogen Effluvium and WLS for some common stories, info etc.

Its going to vary widely but usually not immediately after surgery, it takes a few weeks to months to manifest, if its going to happen.

Safe Journey!!!

My Hair loss started around month three and is still going strong :-( Luckily I have very thick hair.

Mine started about 2 weeks ago, and 3.5 months out. I have very thin and fine hair as it is, so it doesn't make me happy. Saying that, while I am shedding more, it is more of an annoyance and not enough to make me worry about going bald. I think for many of us, it is something we notice far more than anyone else.

Over 4 months out... still no Hair loss. Not everyone has to deal with this for whatever reason. I didn't do much of anything differently than most folks do, I took Biotin for a few months before surgery and I still take it daily. That's really the ONLY thing I did specifically for hair. But others have done the same and had issues. So it's a gamble if it'll even happen to you.

Mine started around 3 month mark. I was really starting to get worried about the Hair loss. I mean, my hair is already fine and thin. I really can't stand to lose too much without it being kind of noticeable. In the last couple of days, I've noticed less and less coming out after I wash. I'm hoping I've seen the worst of it, I can kind of see my scalp! :51_scream:

Mine started about 3 months, and just seems to have slowed dramatically, and/or stopped, right around 5 months.

No Hair loss for me (I’m past when it occurs). My nutritionist thought it was because I always exceeded my Protein goal and never missed a supplement.

About 2 1/2 months out I started losing crap tons of hair. I can run my hand threw my hair and collect several strands, ugh.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
