Is it true that it makes you smell bad and makes your hair look awful ? Can those things be avoided?
On what you eat and how you take care of yourself post surgery.
Bitches, I NEVER had or needed gastric bypass. So don't go there!
I had it in December and no effect on my smell or hair.
How has it been for you, R4?
A friend had it done(age 30ish) and her hair got super thin. I mean she had visible bald areas on the top of her head. It kind of shocked me.
She has also passed out a couple of times. The last time no one was around and she really hit hard.
If you make sure you get enough protein every day (and the amount you'll need post-surgery is much more than what you've been getting all your life pre-surgery) then you'll have no trouble with hair thinning or hair loss.
It's all about increasing your protein intake (hair is protein after all)
take 5000 mcgs of biotin post surgery once a day along with all the other recommended vitamins and it will not be a problem and make sure u get in 60 grams of protein a day. Use shakes if u have to.
[quote]no effect on my smell
It doesn't effect the way YOU smell, but it effects other that have to smell your stench.
Here's a radical diet, just eat less.
Whenever you lose a large amt of weight, you will shed a lot of hair at some point. It's usually a few months after the weight loss began. It's too soon for r4 to weigh in on the subject.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
