I had surgery 5 months ago with Dr R.
I am down 70 lbs and feel great! Blood pressure is better, no cholesterol meds, no more sleep apnea, I am buying new cloths and getting compliments on how great I look since losing weight.
My Mother is the only person that mentioned thinning hair.
I do not have a lot to lose as I am going bald. I cut my hair short for the summer and maybe it will grow back in.
But really, who cares! the weight loss, and health and just feeling great and being able to keep up with my kids has all been great.
Thinning hair and being normal weigh looks muck better than thinning hair and overweight!
Good luck with the surgery
