cckcsharp Posted July 28, 2008 Report Share Posted July 28, 2008 I had a friend who had the gastric bypass and she lost weight very rapidly after her surgery. However, one of the side effects to her rapid weight loss was that she lost a lot of hair. She went from long thick hair to very short and VERY thin hair. So not to sound vain here....but being over weight my whole life I have always felt like I was ugly. But I have always had great hair. I have a huge attachment to my hair because I have always felt like it was the only thing on my entire body that was beautiful. Feeling like everything else from well...the forehead down,was ugly. I know I shouldn't call myself ugly, but as a teenager, people even said things to me like "well, at least you have pretty hair." So, I always just assumed that they meant that the rest of me was ugly. So now, I am worried that with this surgery, my hair will fall out and get real thin like my friends did. Has anyone else had significant hair loss? By the way, I have to say that this is such a wonderful group of people here. You guys are just amazing with the amount of love and support that you give to each to other and especially to us newbies awaiting surgery. I am just truly impressed with how much you all take the time to lift up others in need. Thanks to all of you. Jessica eventually I will post a picture and all my stats.
