Default FINALLY! (3)2 Weeks today!

Finally, after initially booking my HT date 4 years ago, and thereafter changing the surgery date probably 5 times over the years due to work commitments, 3 weeks today I shall be in the chair at Dr. Rahals clinic. Its insane to think that it is so close. Many emotions as normal. Hoping for the best! Cannot wait!

Very exciting. I'm a little over 2 wks away from my HT Dr. Rahal which I booked about 4 months ago and I know how excited I am, I can't imagine what you must be feeling waiting as long as you have and the date is finally insight. Good luck and all the best. I hope it's more than you ever expected it to be.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the replys and support. Its much appreciated. Dont want to be talking prematurely as I havent even made the plane yet, let alone experienced any results, but have so much to thank this site for. Was real lost before I stummbled here to HTN.

An initial 3k grafts were recommended. But the plan is to hopefully have a much larger yield, as large as Dr. Rahal sees possible and appropriate, and to cover as much scalp as possible. Personally hoping for a large mega session to put this to the background for a few years!

Dr Rahal is an excellent surgeon and you should have no worries Raphael.

Good luck

Best of luck Raphael!! I've been following your story for several years now.

Dr Rahal is one of the best surgeons around.

Do you know how many grafts you will be getting?? have you agreed on a hairline placement??

all the best,
Hussein
