Hi Arnold, I didn't get a reason off the doc, I just assumed it was the healing process from the strip...….I think its pretty invasive and therefore recovery is more significant.

FUE was a breeze, honestly I almost enjoyed it.....It was almost pleasant.

My donor area now feels like it did before surgery, I kid you not......just over 4 weeks out

Yes, Im hoping for good density when it grows out as ive had over 5600 grafts into the front 3rd now with the first pass, so here's hoping

Thanks Arnold

Tommy, were you bald in the front third? Have you got a picture of your hair before your first sugery? 5600 is a ton of grafts.

What if you lost more but had no more donor? I doubt that will happen but a scary thought.

That's always the risk I guess with transplants......I like to think Ive managed my donor well...….1st transplant @ 30 and second at 44....all the while stabilising with meds, my hairloss is less of an issue for me as I get older, i know thats sounds contradictory after having 2 x HT's but maybe its because I've addressed it.

For example we had a house warming on friday and i look like a bald eagle after shedding, but really not too fussed all 20 to 30 peopl knew i had work done....No issue

Tommy, I think you will be fine from now onwards. This 2nd transplant should be you sorted.

With hair transplants being sociably acceptable now I guess it makes it easier for people to not hide it. Were your friends asking you about your transplant? If I notice someone that had something done I`ll look more out of interest than frown upon it.

Hi Todd, initially no, they wern't asking as I looked like id had a buzz cut once I had surfaced from the initial redness, I just decided to fess up to people as I don't really care these days...…..My first transplant was a bit cloak and dagger, but its just a waste of energy IMO......It's liberating now that people know and I happily make fun of myself as my head resembles orville the duck at the minute ha ha

I`ve mentioned to a few I`ll be having something done and you`re right, nobody seems to care. The internet is full of celebrities having work done. Orville the duck haha, I remember him.

8 week update...….8 weeks to the day tomorrow. Ugly duckling stage.......Donor feels great it looks a little sparse and you can see my strip scar a little but overall not too obvious. I had my first trim at the weekend. I think I'm back to my original hairline......so far so good.

Hi Tommy. Everything looks on track, good to get that first hair cut and make things look normal again. Your hairline looks near enough pre op now.
I can just make out the strip scar, but only because I`m looking for it. Most people won`t notice it.
