Post Op 1 Month 1 day – 8th April
Just hit the 1 month mark, ive been meaning to put the pictures up but been soo busy at work. Most of the post shedding has stopped and i think i have lost all the transplanted hair. There are some few remain soldiers holding on and growing. The extent of hair loss looks worse in pictures than it is in real life.
In terms of pain, its all gone. Although i have significant itching in the donor area, only when i lay down or rest my head. As you can see my
Post Op 15 th day – 25th March
First day at work since hair transplant. I had taken two weeks off and was hoping no one figured out that i had a hair transplant. Work colleagues did like the new buzz hair cut and complimented me on it. Its good think i slowly told everyone a month or two that i was thinking of shaving my head.
In terms of Post op the recipient area all the scabs are off. There isn't any numbness but at the sametime my recipient area feels less sensitive. But i do fe
Post Op 13th day – 22nd March
Virtually all scabs have fallen from the top of the as well as the donor area. Back of the head seems to be recovering and beginning to feel some sensation. However the sides does feel little tender in the donor area. Partly due to number of grafts that were extract.
The recipient site I have no sensation on top of the head, probably due to the thousands of small incisions being made and the minor nerve damage. This will eventually will go a way as the donor are
Post Op 11th day – 20th March
Hair is growing faster and thicker. You can really see the extent of how bald you are when you have short hair. Normally I’ve had longer hair which I then top up with Nanogen. Well those days will go now, can’t wait when the new hair sprouts out.
In terms of todays pictures nothing additional. Apart from I’ve added Rogaine foam in the morning and night to my regimen. I made sure I waited good 10 days or so before I started this. There isn’t much literature
Post Op 9th day – 18th March
First time after the post op I feel that I am really healing well. Usual routine is to take my vitamins, put the last of the cream that the clinic provided. In terms of the donor area the scabs are falling off on a daily basis. Hair is start to grow and cover the donor area. Skin looks still pinkish and it seems that I have eczema. I’ve been putting bio oil on this and it does help with the itchiness. I have in the evening put aloe vera on as well as sometimes the
Post Op 7th day – 16th March
I have no pain either at the recipient and donor area. On this day I have started to take finasteride and some hair nail vitamins. I’m hoping it will reduce the post shedding or assist in any shock loss of hair that might have occurred. Its too early to tell whether I have achieved shock loss but rather be safe than sorry.
The hardest thing I have found is that I normally go to the gym 5 times a week. I’m a person who normally doesn’t sit around, unfortunately I
Post Op 5th day – 14th March
Sleep has gone back to normal routine pattern now. But sleep at 45 degree angle does take its toll. Head feels like a paper weight when resting against the pillow. I have started get some feeling back in the recipient area.
Normal routine is to take the rest of the medication, have the cream on my head for 45 minutes. Then gently wash this. I then normally take the photos.
In terms of the Post Op - feeling with regards to recipient and donor area as follows
Post Op 4th day – 13th March
Slept for several hours today. I think sleeping in my own bed with the right temperature was what I needed. It was driving me crazy due to lack of sleep. I don’t think the main cause of this was due to the procedure but the lack of air con at the hotel. Sleeping at my own place I was completely knocked out for 8 hours.
I didn’t require any pain killers, but today’s routine was take the medication as prescribed in post op procedure. Have my breakfast and I de
Day 3 Post - OP: 12 th March
Slept slightly better today. i had over 6 hours sleep! Again the heating in the hotel room did not help with air cons not working. However today was the day to head back to UK and arrive at Manchester.
Routine was have breakfast with managing director and his daughter. They've been with us from day 1 and met up with us every morning. I cannot thank them so much with the care and hospitality they provided me and wifey. I believe we made some good friends
Post Op 2nd day - 11th March
Again only slept for two hours...Not because of the procedure because of the heat in the hotel room. I just spent most of the night browsing and reading on my Ipad and watching some Dexter series. Unfortunately all the air con in the hotel wasn't working and this didn't help. I couldn't open the windows in the hotel as it outside the main road and has significant noise traffic. Also when you do lie down it feels like a metal plate attached to your head or lying
Day 1 of post op Sunday 10th March,
In the morning took the medication and went downstairs to have breakfast. Wasn't in the mood of breakfast but need the nutrients to assist in the healing process. i had forgot to mention on the day of the operation i had met another person from UK who had his operation day earlier (Friday). He helped with the experience as we both discuss this during the morning breakfast. The managing director and his daughter was there and we discussed the operation.
I have recently had hair transplant in Instanbul (8th March 2013). I live in the UK and it was big decision for me to go overseas and get this done.
First of all a little about me, i've just turned 32 and currently work for the NHS. I've been losing my hair since i was 18 onwards. Over the years i've had always had an issue with my hair by concealing it in various ways, i started to use Regaine and then Nanogen to hide thinning areas. However this has given me comfort but it still is on my mi
