Default Shockloss Timeline

Guys, what are your experiences regarding shockloss. At what stage weeks/months did you first notice that you were experiencing shockloss and how did this then progress? At what stage did you notice that the hairs were returning?

All feedback would be great!

For me and I think the majority of people.....shock loss usually improves vastly or is gone by 3 months. Of course everyone is different but that is a generally good time frame.

Shockloss can occur as fast as a few days after surgery to a few weeks after surgery. Usually the shockloss is much better or gone around 3-4 months.

I'm going through it right now, in the donor area. Started 24 hours after surgery. It seems almost impossible to predict.

Very interesting! What a crazy phenomenon. What is an estimate of the percentage of patients that experience shockloss?

Thumbs up Shock Loss Grew Back

I experienced shockloss with my second surgery. Both in the transplanted area and in the donor area.

1.) Transplanted area.....some (not all) of the hairs from my 1st transplant fell out about 2 weeks after my 2nd surgery,as did some natural hairs.

2.) Donor area.... I did loose native hair around this donor area and especially where the suture was tied at the end.

I tend to swell really bad, even with the prednisone. I do not know if that contributed to the shockloss.

Naturally, it is upsetting to see hair loss. Especially the hairs from my 1st surgery. Every hair I saw, I was counting the cost in the sink!

I did know this could happen so I was thankful that I was educated.

At 3-4 months, ALL of the hairs in the transplanted area and the donor grew back. THANK GOODNESS.

The entire HT process is a waiting game. I have learned patience.
