How long did hair loss last for you??



Recommended Posts

Mine has been going for about a month. It seems like it's slowing.

Today, my husband had to unclog my shower drain.

maybe three or four months (??). I didn't lose very much, though. All I really noticed were some extra strands in my comb when I combed it out after washing it. Otherwise, I never would have noticed.

Mine is definitely noticeable. I can tell I've lost quite a bit around my hairline and especially near my temples. I already have lots of baby hairs, so that's a good sign at least. As long as it keeps decreasing in the amount I'm losing, I can deal with it. The beggining was really be and scared me a lot because I really thought I was going to lose it all.

At 3 months is when the Hair loss hit hard for me. I empty my brush every couple days ohh its bad. Running my hands through my hair in the shower is a no no right now. To much comes out! I feel like im going to go bald. Alot of people mention its just a faze and i asked my docter he said that i dont need to add hair / nail Vitamins that it will all grow back.. :(

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
