Topic: RE: My Hair loss....
I'm Kathy too but from Allentown PA. I had RNY on 2-2-05. I'm down 108lbs so far but with in the last 2-3 weeks my beautiful thick brown hair is thinning. I pick hairs off my clothing and seem to constantly be cleaning out my combs. I swear I can see my scalp shining in the sun when I look in the mirror. My friends say they don't see a difference other than my hair looks dryer than it used to, but it still shines and looks nice, but I am freaking over the loss of hair.
My surgeon says it's not the amount of protein I take in but how rapidly the weight is coming off. He says you don't see any bald people in my office do you? Frankly I'm scared.
How long does the hair loss go on, and does anything really help with the loss?
I agree too that other than the hair loss, and the sagging skin, I would do it all over again.
