2013-08-24 Four Months After



Well, at the four month mark here, for sure it's easy to see changes and growth. I'm a little bit confused as to why the right side is denser than the left one?! I'm also hoping that more hairs will be sprouting still and what I see isn't all that I'm going to get. It seems strange to me that there could be a significant amount of hairs that haven't shown their little faces yet though after 4 months -- then again I was told it can take up to 6 months to see growth. In this case that is and isn't comforting at the same time. I mean, if I'm seeing results now, then why aren't I seeing all the results coming in together? All the hairs were planted at the same time, so what would make one hair grow faster than another? I think I need to go in and see Ferko and get the low down. I know what he's going to say -- I just need to hear him say it again LOL. "wait. just wait.". I don't think I've ever second-guessed anything in my life as much as I do this. It's a very conflicted feeling, knowing that Hasson is the best in the world and seeing results of other patients, and at the same time when it's on your own head, you start to think, "well maybe I'll be the exception to the rule and things aren't going to go as well for me as it did for everyone else".

I still have a very itty bitty bit of numbness on the top front and back. If I had to put a number on it, I'd say it was like 95% back to nornal. I have gotten very tired of wearing a hat out to the clubs, so three times now I have done some "creative" styling of my hair and not worn a hat. Most people have said, "your hair looks so good!" -- which I don't know if the're blowing smoke up my ass or what, because to me, it's still all kinds of jenky. I also think the pink is finally starting to blend away to flesh color. It's wierd because in these photos it looks mostly gone, however in photos I've taken over the weekend out at clubs, I can definitely see the reddish area. So I don't know. Maybe it's the harsh flashes from the cameras that's amplifying the red or something in those cases?

The shock loss continues to upset me on a daily basis. As a computer programmer, the basic math of this isn't sitting right -- I just feel the rate of loss compared to the rate of growth equals one bald-ass head soon! confused_smile.gif Visibly watching 30+ hairs or more every shower literally go down the drain, combined with seeing the thinning results (you can see them too in the photos), is mental anguish. I'd say even moreso than the waiting for the grafts to grow. It reminds me of this scene from The Hunger..
