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.

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
