Default The waiting, waiting, and waiting!!!

30 days after Ht now and the hairs are pretty much gone, I can see the next few months are gonna be long if I fixate on it, I'm thinking it's best to find something to get interested in and just forget about hair for a few months.

That's what you need to do!! Start training for a marathon. That takes about 4 months. That will kill some time!

Hi,

This period after the hair transplant is the most difficult. I bet your continually looking at your head in the mirror. I did this for quite some time until I bot bored with obsessing about my hair.

Good luck

Regards

Ro

The first 2-3 months completely suck. Hang tough and think positive!

Default Mirrors

Rod G, of course you are 100% right...We obsess in the mirror even if we aren't normally inclined to do so. And I think many of us try not to look in the mirror and be constantly reminded of hair loss.

After my most recent HT's I did lots of post op looking. I healed and then got busy with work. But as soon as I broke from work for 2 weeks I started obsessing....

Hey guys!!

CHEERS UP! I always looked at it this way:

I have spent my whole life losing my hair as time went on. Now, I get to enjoy the luxury of time as my hair grows in ..

It is uphill from here!

Relax and enjoy the ride

Well, here's the thing- you are going to look aesthetically better in the next 6-12 months right? You might as well work on some other areas of your life that need attention. It doesn't have to be physical or superficial either; just use some of that energy that's been spent on worrying over your head on a project that you've put on the back burner at home or at work.

A lot of guys like to hit the weights or get in the habit of doing regular cardio. You can drop a few pounds or tone up the old body and make a serious impact by the time the hair starts to mature. It sounds rather superficial, but it does synergize within the HT timeline, as 6 months of exercise can be significant.

If you track your HT progress with monthly photos; you could even track your physical progress with photos. Something to think about. But, like I said, if you already are in great shape you might as well address the other opportunities in your life (everyone has some).

1 year from now, none of this will matter. You will have hair and will enjoy the "fruits of your labor."

I'm 3 weeks post and still have most of my "stubbly" FUE hairs..I hope they stick around! Have a bit of shock loss

in the crown and my donor area is just now filling in as a result of the shaving from FUE extraction
