Yep, it has started happening I am at my 3 months and my hair has starting falling out. Just had all my labs done all great, only eat Protein so thats good. I know, it just happens. I am a slow loser, I have lost 40 pounds and so happy for the first time in years I finally see a lost. (Thyroid issue)

So tell me how long does this Hair loss last?

My Hair loss really picked up at the 3 month mark and slowed down at just a little over 6 months.

But really, everyone is different.

How fast does your hair grow normally? WLS caused "hair loss" isn't really "hair loss" it's just that your way more of your follicles entered their normal rest phase than would typically happen due to the surgery (it can happen with any stress, diets, etc) So now that your hair has started to regrow, those follicles are dropping / shedding the hair they were holding onto during the rest phase. So you'll notice the regrowth in a few weeks as it starts to make it's way out of the follicles.

Mine started at 3 months to the day practically and has now gone back to "normal" in the last two weeks. I am 5 and a half months out of surgery so I had two solid months of it.

My hair is way thinner than it was but its still acceptable to the outside world. I don't look much different but I know its thinner and if people really looked, they would see a loss at my temples and at the side near my ears.

My hair shed from month 4 ish to month 10 ish so yes, it can last longer. But my hair turned a corner and it’s recovering here in month 11 pretty well!

I'm 5 months out and lost a little bit of hair. it's already showing signs of growing back. It's a bit thin, but it always was anyways. I have found that it was getting very dry, straw-like. So I gave it a baby oil treatment and wow, what a difference. really let it soak in right to my scalp. then washed it out. I guess in the big scheme of things, it's not that big of a deal - my goal was weight loss. and i'm making it.

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
