My hair is falling out. A lot of my hair is falling out.
It is a normal side effect of extreme weight loss and especially weight loss surgery. Mostly commonly between months two and six after surgery hair will start falling out, but it will end. I had bloodwork done for my three month check-up and everything is normal. I am going to add a bit more iron and zinc to my diet to see if it helps since I was within normal limits, but a bit at the low end when my blood results came back.
I have very thick hair and I am not worried about going bald. So far it is just a bit worse than the hair loss I experienced after being pregnant. But still, it is a little sad to see my hair everywhere around the house instead of on my head. I am just hoping that it doesn't get any worse!

Ah well, I guess if I do go bald I can just wear some nice red fox fur on my head!
