Exam has been great, thank you! As promised a small update after exactly 7 weeks. There are some small and dark hairs growing in the recipient area, but very sparse. Their speed of growth seems to be rather slow.
My original hair has grown back quite well and after today ´s hair cut I can feel quiet normal and comfortable with my looks. Wearing a hat outside mainly to protect from the sun. So not much to report after 7 weeks. I hope I will see some first more relevant changes in the next weeks. Best Regards
Good to hear the exam went well. Your hair looks as it should at this stage, the redness in the recipient area will keep fading. It's good to get that first post op haircut, helps you return to normality. Thanks for the update.
No, there is no soreness. One of the pictures was taken just after application of minoxidil so the redness is pronounced. Since week 3 there was no unfamiliar sensation at all, even when touching the transplanted area. I also had no numbness.
The smaller dark hairs should be growing grafts, at least they are new. In other areas it is difficult to tell for me which hairs are old and which have newly emerged as I only slightly lowered my hairline and many grafts were put into miniaturised areas.
Thanks for answering regarding the soreness.... Apart from the positive side effect of new growth and prohibiting DHT, we never hear of other positives from taking this drug. Helping you with sleep insomnia outweighs the grogginess during the day, well, in your circumstances it does.... Does it matter if you take the pill in the morning or a few hours before bedtime? Possibly taking it around 8 pm would provide the help with sleeping and reduce the tiredness during the day because the body will be absorbing most of the drug while you're sleeping.
Apologies or the above reply.... I thought I was on another thread, my bad. Admin, could you delete above reply please. JrCore. Nice to hear it's not sore at all.... I'm checking into everything HT in case I'm in a positition to go ahead sometime.
So far no relevant new hair growth 9 weeks post-op. Had a difficult period this weekend due to an incident last Friday. I was invited for some spontaneous coffee with my chief and he went outside with me for a 15min break. Fortunately It was a little cloudy, but I had no option to cover my head. Nevertheless I am slightly worried now. I received no serious sunburn. Difficult to say if there was a slight erythema as my recipient site is still a little bit red. Hope I will have no problems with growth now. What do you think?
At 9 weeks post op I believe you will be fine getting a little Sun. You weren`t out too long and red does not necessarily mean burnt, your redness is the post op variety. Double check with the doctor if you have further concerns.
These are pictures 10 weeks after my hair transplant. Unfortunately I had a severe bump on my recipient area (arrow),so probably destroyed some transplants there. In general I am going through the typical post-op rollercoaster. There might me some slight growth in the recipient area, but as expected is is visually not significant.
