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.

      Question for anyone, how did you get your mind right before surgery? Like as far as eating better foods and just doing better in general? I'm having a really hard time with this. Any help is appreciated 🙏❤️

        I had about 6 months between deciding to do surgery and getting scheduled. I came across the book The Pound of Cure by Dr. Matthew Weiner, a bariatric surgeon in Arizona, and started to implement some of the changes he recommended (and lost 13 lbs in the process without ever feeling deprived). The book is very simple, and the focus is on whole, plant based foods, but within reason. It's not an all or nothing approach, or going vegan or something, but focuses on improvement and aiming for getting it right 80-90% of the time. His suggestions are divided into 12 sections that you can tackle over time, perhaps one per month for a year if a person is just trying to improve nutrition and build good habits. They range from things like cutting out artificial sweetener or eating more beans to eating a pound of vegetables per day. I found it really effective pre-surgery and it's an eating style I will be working to get back to as I am further out from surgery and have more capacity. Small changes you can sustain will do the most for building good habits for life.

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
