|Hi everyone,Firstly I would like to thank you for reading my post/thread... Looking for some experienced advise... Background: I have been using finansteride for 5 years & it has considerably slowed the hair loss & allowed me to keep the hair that I currently have on my head. I had tried using Minoxidil ( for 1 week) some time ago & I hated how it made my scalp feel. The scalp was itchi and unpleasant. In addition, during that week I had more then normal shedding. Now, I understand that Minoxidil could have these affects in the initial phase. I also know that 1 week is simply not enough time to judge. Also, I want to say that the purpose of me trying to utilize Minoxidil in the first place was to gain new growth not to maintain what I already had, as Finansteride was already getting the job done.
Question: I will be undergoing a hair transplant soon, have some fear of shock-loss after surgery & wanted to find out if minoxidil was beneficial to anyone prior or after the HT procedure ?
Thank you kelmf01
