It's no exaggeration to say that I've lost about
half of the hair on my head following Step 1 of my surgery on April 1. I don't know if it was from the surgery itself or the anasthesia but I'm losing hair everywhere on my head. Every time I run my hands through my hair I grab handfuls that have fallen out. I constantly feel hair fall on my shoulders and arms. I'm scared to cook or bake anything because I'm afraid I'll end up with some extra ingredients. I'm concerned especially because I still have two more surgeries to go and I can't imagine what I'm going to look like at the end of this. Is this common and when will it all end? I've started looking at wigs!
