I thought this might help one or two people riding on the rollercoaster of highs and lows.. since their/your recent HT..




I know what it was like waiting for something to happen post op and wanted to give some words of encouragement.. even though I've had 3 HT's.. (2 world class HT's by Dr Feller). I think its still a Roller Coaster ride even for experienced guys who have been there already... if your an impatient bloke like me... it makes it seem twice as long just to wait till the end of each passing day to check up on the lastest signs of a single hair popping up!? *nl (it seems nuts but I was checking every 30 minutes!) a top tip is get a hobby or fix up something that has been gathering dust or some other long term project. I fixed up and restored my old car.. took my mind off the HT and I ended up with something pretty shiny afterwards... (that wasnt the top of my head!). Also got back into fitness and started excercising a bit more.. and set goals and targets that kept me motivated and lost the spare tyre I was carrying around.

Most people will visit the post op roller coaster... its worth knowing your not alone... u'll think its all gone tits up because its not fully grown out by 4 months post op... *nl (yes...I did! I have to say... I wasnt happy at 3 - 4 months after HT no.1... but its easy to forget thats the very start of the regrowth journey stage... by 10-14 months... take another look and see how things have changed!

If your still not sure... its time to grab the 'pre op pictures' and compare how you looked before. Pre op pics and a great way to remind yourself where you was at! It still amazes me how you can watch every single day and not realise how much hair has come through at around 6 months... its when you grab the pre op pics and wonder how you didnt see the hair growing back all over the top of your head! :eek: It grows sooo slooowly that you cant even tell anything is happening! :unsure: from there on.. the following few months were more noticable with more coverage.

I am now approx 14 months post my 2nd HT... and I can honestly say... the quality of the hair that Dr Feller placed in the front 3rd is improving all the time. I am seeing the mid/top/crown area (in a thin strip about 2" wide) is now thinner than the front where previously there was no hair! I am going to talk with Spex about having a bit more in the mid section behind the front 3rd in the near future... I know I am in safe hands with Dr Feller... his team have turned my life around... to think I would be in the position to have another HT after the mess I was in before will be more than the icing on the cake.... it will be the icing on top of the icing on the cake! I'll post up more about this when things have been discussed a bit further with Dr F and Spex.

This was mainly a quick post... just to give some positive feedback to all the guys sitting and waiting for things to take off... it will! Just hang in there... its worth the ride! ;)

This was me before (with an aweful embarressing center parting!) and after..



18 Months post the 1st Feller HT..



and going a bit crazy with it... (too long without hair does this to you!)





I never thought this would be possible a few years ago... I looked terrible... and felt terrible.. this is the best decision of my life... and cant say enough thanks to Dr Feller and Spex!! (also guys like PB... BM.. etc etc for the constant support is beyond the call of duty) and to everyone else that has helped... hope I can help a few others along your journey ;)

Heal... wait a bit... Grow a bit...and hang about a bit... Grow some more.... and you'll be on your way to a happy hairy future! Its just a pain in the ass waiting but expect a few ups and downs and uncertainty before the ride ends and the results are there waiting for you! ;)

All the very best.

Oh, by the way, I love the name change. Very appropriate now. Guess I should have considered a name change too.
