That’s not good Suzi.

is it a side effect?

I’m still learning things about my surgery.

Yes, it happens to 95% of people who have weight loss surgery. So perfectly normal. Mine is just starting sooner. It lasts a few months and then your hair comes back.

I have def. noticed a lot more hair coming out on my brush. I have a ton of hair so I'm hoping no bald spots start to form.

I have been losing hair since I had Covid in January! I use Biotin Shampoo and double my dose of oral tablets, oh and I use natural conditioner and styling products from Lush. I am hoping I found my remedy cuz the clumps are getting smaller

I have been planning for this stage for a long time. I daily drink one of my 32 ounces with a grass-fed collagen and take a real food Vitamin C with it. The Vitamin helps to get the best benefit from the collagen. My massage therapist has been massage my scalp and stimulate the hair roots to keep a good blood flow supply. So far, so good, I have not loss much of my hair. When I was on strict Keto several years ago, I lost a lot of hair then and it regrew. I did a lot of research and am hoping these extra actions will help curb some of the lost this time around.

Oh bummer. I haven’t brushed my hair in a few years.
it’s short and curly. So I’m not sure if I’m going to notice.
it’s been 5 1/2 weeks now and I can finally transition to sloppy/purée foods.
yay for me.

Yes!!! It's soo frustrating!! I'm taking Biotin, B12, using minoxidil and a lot of hair stuff for the loss, but its even staring to show. Recently dye it a different color, knowing that eventually I'll have to cut it. My hair length is past my back, it was one of the few things I used take pride for, so long, shiny and healthy.

Congrats Suzi. I think I’m about another 10kgs away from wearing mine. Hopefully I can wear them for my 25th Anniversary.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
