My hair started falling out years ago. I think my hormones have been so imbalanced from the weight, I would find my hair everywhere but on my head. I don't see it all over anymore and my hair has actually gotten a little thicker since I started losing weight pre-surgery, I even have baby hairs standing where my part is now. But reading this post I'm getting a bit freaked out, I hope I don't start losing it again, I'm 3 mos post op right now. 😧

I been trying the pills I posted on these comments.. it helped me with my hair so much before surgery.. so now I’m hoping they will help either reduce, prevent, or even just simply help my hair.. thankfully my hair hasn’t fell much but I am only 2 months post op

Well, my Hair loss has begun - nearly 4 months post op. I have been taking Biotin 10,000 mcg since week 2. My nails are nice and strong, so I am hoping my new hair will be strong, too. It was encouraging to hear that the hair loss is actually from the hair follicles starting to RE-grow and pushing the dead hair out. The hair most likely died in the very beginning during the near starvation stage of very low caloric intake. So I'm hoping the faster it falls out, the faster it will come in. Meantime, I am keeping with a short, summer time Pixie cut that will minimize the amount of hair in the drain,

I am coming up on my year next month,

I lost an alarming amount of hair from about month 4-month 7 My Hair loss started to get better around Month 6th but then I had my Gallbladder removed, and had a bile leak and was in and out of the hospital for several weeks with a drain and that sent my body into a tail spin AGAIN.

BUT I have SO MANY baby hairs and regrowth. My hair is def thinner I notice a difference but most people can't tell looking at me (I did start out with a lot of hair so I was lucky)

I know when you are going through it, and it is YOUR hair clogging the drain and covering your clothes and pillow and filling your brush it is SO HARD to look at it and think...It is ok...this is going to pass

But it is normal and it will pass and most of the time it does come back, it seems so horrible at the time but keep taking your Vitamins, take some Biotin if you want (I know I did and still do) and know that in a few months it will all be over

I am only 4 weeks post op and I notice my hair is way thinner and doesn’t feel as soft. Is this too early? Am I gonna be bald by 4 months post op seems that’s when people notice it also what can I take to help it I can’t take Biotin cuz I heard it messes with your thyroid levels and I get mine tested often.

These are the Vitamins, consulte with a Doctor first. Let me know if you guys use them 😄

I just don't think its necessary to take an additional supplement - all those Vitamins and minerals should already be in your Multivitamin. You're not likely going to cause a toxicity of any of them, but you're just wasting money on additional doses of them that you already took.

My Hair loss started at 4 months and continued for well past the year mark. But I did have gallbladder surgery at 11 months which could have contributed. I am now almost at two years and hair is almost fully back to normal. Still sprouting new growth all the time. I do take Hair, Skin and Nail Vitamins.

Oh, I am brightened to read this. I am almost at 8 months and while I thought my Hair loss stopped, I was sorely mistaken. While I love my short hair now (cut off in month 3 when I got sick of seeing my shed hair everywhere), I still would like the option to grow it out long again someday. I'm glad that yours came back after an extended period of loss...gives me something to hopefully look forward to myself.

I'm right there with you... just over a month post op and I've lost a fair bit of hair already. Started when I was in hospital. I can't pull my hair up/back in front any longer. If it continues at this rate, I'll likely shave my head next month. I've done it before, and I think I look okay bald.

Im at 6 months and just in the last week Ive noticed an increase in the amount of hair I'm shedding during a shower. Nothing major though and I hope this isnt a trend. I havent taken Biotin or anything else. I just try get in my Protein and Water in. Honestly everything else is more of a placebo. If they really worked then the ladies with clumps coming out would be very happy
