Here’s a question a lot of pre-ops have. How bad is the hair loss? Well, for me I started losing around 2 months post op. Now, a month later I have approximately half of what I originally had. Granted, I had a LOT of hair before, so it’s not that noticeable… yet. If it keeps coming our at this rate it will be, but only time will tell. For someone who has always had very thick hair, suddenly seeing your scalp is a little unnerving, but it’s part of the journey and part of the sacrifice I chose to make for this weight loss.
