Hair loss will it grow back after TAH

I am losing my hair and am hoping that after I have everything removed it might start to grow back. Have any of you had this happen?? I'll be happy to be pain free and it would be even better to have some hair

Hi Evelyn,

Your hair loss might be caused by hormonal imbalances, which may be corrected with HRT after surgery. Only your doctor could tell you for sure.

Unfotunately, surgery can also cause hair loss due to anesthesia, further hormonal imbalances and/or stress. My hair fell out in handfuls for about 4 months after surgery. Luckily, I had a lot of hair, so it didn't really show, but it was getting very thin. Now, at 10 1/2 months, it's all grown back and then some. I just had a perm the other day, and my stylist was commenting on how thick my hair was.

Talk to your doctor about your hair loss. There should be something that could be done for you.
