Month 3



After the funeral experience, I made an appt. to follow up with my surgeon just to check on things. I had experienced no shockloss whatsoever after my 2006 procedure so I wanted to make sure nothig was amiss. My scalp looked fine and everything healed up well. I had been on finasteride since the prior September and minoxidil maybe a month or two later. I kept taking the finasteride straight through, and got back on minox maybe a week after surgery. It was just determined to be a classic case of shockloss and my number happened to be up this time. I purchased a case of Dermmatch on the way out to go with the Caboki I had already ordered.

I thought I was feeling crummy by the end of month 2, but month three was definitely rock bottom. I had a shockloss reprieve for maybe a couple of weeks tops before it came back with a vengence later in the month. Now I was getting very thick dark hairs coming out in droves whereas before I was mainly getting thinner lighter hairs. And the middle of my head was really starting to clear out when that had always been a fairly bulky area for me. I was fairly dependent on concealer now, just because I couldn't take the constant looks.

Attached are some pics taken exactly three months post-op. Again, I'm kicking myself for not taking any pre-op pics for comparison purposes.

Hi Spartan,


Sorry to hear about the rough month! Dealing with shock loss is difficult, but things should improve in the following months. Look forward to updates.
