I am six months post op from Sleeve surgery, and had a lot of hair loss. It is coming to an end, and I’m not seeing much come out anymore, but it was significant. Many of my friends commented they would freak out over it. Nah. I’d gladly lose my hair again for the healthy way I feel now. It’s only hair. I was attached to it by the roots, but not emotionally attached.
I went to my hairdresser yesterday to get rid of my gray roots. And I told her how unhealthy my hair was. I was losing underneath at the nape of my neck, so I couldn’t get it to look ok in the back no matter what. It looked too thin. We decided to cut it. She suggested she needed to cut it off to a healthy length and asked if I would be ok going short. I said do what you need to do. We added lots of color for dimension. And we cut it shorter than I have ever worn it before. Or at least since 4th grade.
I’m getting used to it. It’s a big change. Here is a picture to give you an idea of where it was.
I feel like a different person. This could be perfect for me and give me another kick in the butt to keep going. So I ordered some funky headbands today to give me extra motivation.
Anyone else gone thru the hair loss? Again, a small price to pay for being healthy, so I will take it.
Also, I had my 6 month follow up on Friday of last week. I explained that my workouts have been derailed by migraines for the past three weeks. I have been suffering like mad. They wanted me to go to my general dr and have her look at giving me a preventative medicine that I would take every night instead of just treating the migraines. They explained that there is a very small percentage of weight loss patients who experience more migraines after surgery. I don’t think this is really the case, I really do think it is due to the massive fluctuations we have had with weather.
So on Tuesday I did see my regular doctor and we found a new med for me. I will take it daily and see if it works. It does knock me out, so I take it at night, which means I may not need my sleeping pill anymore. LOL
But I feel good. And to me, it’s all I want!
