  1. Hi guys- The last 2 months have been pretty steady progress I haven't had another explosion of growth like I did at 3 months it's been mainly thickening with the odd new hair appearing here and there. I'm hopping the next couple of months will see my hairline thicken up as it's still quite patchy and thin in parts but all in all I would say I'm quite pleased with my progress. Anyway have a look for yourselves and let me know what you think. Cheers.
  2. Hi guys, I thought it time I should update this blog as I'm now 4 months post op and have experienced some growth. Nothing really happened until around two months where I noticed a few new hairs start to spring up but nothing major. It was about the 3 month mark when I suddenly had a whole bunch of thin little hairs appear on both my left and right temples. As you will already know they start as barely visible thin hairs which thicken over time. Some of them have already thickened nicely and others are still quite thin even though they appeared around the same time. I've taken some photo's
  3. Haha, cheers Ziggy! ....Brilliant! Thanks for the response orlhair1 I'm sure you right.
  4. I do appreciate that logic and I'm hopping it's right, I just had a bit of a panic when my newly sprouted hairs fell out where the slight discolouration on my scalp is which led me to believe the sun has had some effect on them. In fact another one shed in that region today. There's nothing I can do about it now if it has caused any damage so I'm just going to chill out and see where I am in 6 months. Thanks for the reply.
  5. Hi Monkey- Just wondering how everything turned out for you?
  6. Cheers for the quick responses guys much appreciated. I still find it strange thought that newly sprouted hair would shed 1 week after emerging. They started as little black heads in an area with no native hair so definitely new transplanted hairs. Has anyone had this experience before? The reason I am particularly worried is that I read a posts of someone who had burned himself whilst away on holiday about 5 months post op. He also noted his new transplanted hair shed about a week later which he stated never grew back again. :eek: I know he had a proper burn and I didn't but we were both expo
  7. Hi guys, A week ago my grafts were exposed to the sun for no more than 8 mins. Basically something happened at work were I had no choice but to brave the sun without a hat. I didn't burn but I did go slightly pink most noticeably on my right temple. To be honest I didn't worry about it at all at first as from what I gathered from previous posts your pretty much safe up to a first degree burn which I didn't have. Over the last couple of days however I've lost a few transplanted hairs whilst showering. I'm nearly 9 weeks post op at the moment and had experienced some really early growth in f
  8. Thanks for the advice Skinnyshaft I will try to put it out of my mind. You should definitely treat yourself to a weekend break over there I know I will. Tempenet thanks for your comment I appreciate the support. Bonkerstonker love your name and all pal it's genius! Taking the plunge thanks for that made me laugh and of cause I completely agree they don't stand a chance, Spex good to know I can sound you out if I need some advice, cheers buddy. I'm 16 days post op now so thought it's time to update my thread to let you know how i'm getting along. I had my stapl
  9. Hi everyone, First off just wanted to say a big thank you to all who contribute to this site. I, like most people from the U.K. would never have considered going abroad to get this procedure done if I hadn't had access to all this information to show the different standards that are out there. After months, well more like weeks of deliberating between two or three top doctors I decided to go to New York to have my procedure done with Dr Feller. He was the stand out choice in the end for me mainly due to the sheer number of patients posting positive results on forums like this. Also Spe
