We've gotten plenty of patients with 5+ years on Fin. They feel it's helping to hold onto the hairs. Don't think I've come across a NW 6 or 7 level patient who say they've been on Fin for any length of time.
Josh - love your avatar- it cracks me up and it's sooooo cute.
I recall you saying you have had positive effects from the meds. I also recall seeing your pre-op pics quite some time ago. Any chance of seeing pics of you before getting on meds and pics of your current situation?
This will be year 11 for me on Finasteride. It's been good helping me keep what I have or at least slowed the loss right down. No regrowth I noticed but hair quality improved and I haven't had any side effects.
The second pic is a bit blurry.......lol. Your hair looks a bit longer too in the second pic. What I can gather is that you don't seem to have had further loss. That in itself is a positive response to meds. Clear pic with same length hair would give a better indication as to if re-growth occured.........wow, can't please women, right. As I write this I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to flick me off. You are grand to take and post a pic straight away and I do really, really appreciate it. In any case, I'm pleased for you the meds are working. ¬b`
