freaking out



Im about one in half months from my last HT. Ive had several procedures over the years with great results. However I just wasnt satisfied and decided to go for one more procedure. I went to a great Dr and he was able to get me another 2500 gratfs. However, I am going through the worst Shock loss in the history of man. The Dr performed a strip procedure across the back of my head right above the ears. When I came home from the procedure I had all my hair in the back of my head in the donor area. I now have a apxx 1 inch strip of shiny bald skin from ear to ear. It looks awful! This is the worst experience of my life. I was told I am experiencing donor shock and the area should grow back in time. but I'm still freaking out. Has anybody experienced anything similar? Thank You for your feed back.

It does look like shock loss. In the majority of cases, shock loss does grow back. However, it can take up to 5-6 months. Have you discussed this with your surgeon?
