Jul 27, 2011Yes, it's true...I'm losing loads of hair....it really started coming out at about 5 weeks post op....clumps of hair strands just fall right out...totally scary and sucky...but I had read about this problem here so I it wasn't a big surprise...
I do think it is getting to be a bit noticeable, at least to me...because I have fine, straight hair to begin with, and now my hair just seems really thin...especially at the middle part where my hair lays...
It's not just the emotional pain of potentially looking bad, but it really is a nuisance having falling hairs everywhere...it's on my clothes, on my body, in my mouth half the time....all over the floor, the bed, and clogging up my shower drain!
I'm trying to get in all my protein, I don't know that it would help, though....I also am using the Nioxin shampoo and conditioner, and have taken the Biotin pills on and off....I just don't have much faith, since the nutritionist said I would just pee out the supplements and that hair loss for most people is just inevitable due to the trauma of surgery and the fast pace of weight loss....
So, what can I do....nothing....I just hope and pray it stops soon.....
