Hi. I read one of your postings and thought I'd write you. I am 6 months post op and have lost 70lbs. I see my doc this week for 6 months follow up. I am doing well, but have EXTREME hair loss? Did you experience any of this? Also, I, too, have trouble visualizing my weight loss. I really cannot see it in the mirror, but I can if I see a picture of myself. Of course, my clothes tell the real story. But it IS weird that I cannot see it in the mirror. I think that I might be doing too many carbs, from reading some of the postings. Any problem with you in this area?I have been really remiss in trying to work in contacting people in my situation since my surgery. By reading this site, I feel like I am really missing something. My surgeon is a sweetheart, but he is really a professional plumber. I do not mean that unkindly. He is an excellent surgeon. I am an RN and find that in general, surgeons are expert at what they do, but they are generally not real interested in the BIG PICTURE ( no pun intended). Perhaps I need to set aside some time every week and go on line to find folks like you to share with.

Hi Burnadette, thank you so much for your kind words that you posted for me. I post sometimes, but I have never had anyone respond and it felt so nice to hear from someone without having to go on the chat line. I am doing well and appreciate your kind words and your prayer. Christy

Bernadette, Just thought I would drop yo a line. You are doing faboulously! We have 3 things in common, my surgery was right near yours (8/15) and I was born and raised in West Chester, PA. I now live in NYC and have been here since 1997. My family still lives in Westtown. Good luck to you, girl, we are gonna make it! Heather (8/15 - 305/218/150)
