  1. To piggyback off this, I also only use it once a day. But I use the full daily recommended amount (1 cap full of the foam). Since Rossybop seems to maybe use half the amount daily , I’d be curious to get opinions on the full amount too, but when it’s used in one go.
  2. I’m booked with Eugenix tentatively for March 2021 (really hoping I can make it and not be restricted from traveling from the US due to COVID), and my advisor says you need to stop using minoxidil one week prior to surgery. Regarding using it on the donor, I’m not sure but I’d certainly recommend asking them first.
  3. After reading through the thread, I'm feeling compelled to also respond regarding Dr. Scott Boden. First, I'd just like to note the reason my post history on here is so brief: Immediately after joining, it became immediately apparent to me that navigating/posting on this site via mobile (my only means of Internet) was practically impossible. I sent a private to Bill regarding this at the time (which hopefully he can verify). Though, it seems that this has been remedied since then! What a relief! *Dr. Boden did NOT ask me to respond, by the way. I found this thread on my own*
  4. Time to do something, It's been a little over a month since your previous post. Do you have any updates? How are you holding up?
  5. Gillenator's advice is spot on. After my first HT, my pimples were so bad that I was actually concerned of permanent scarring. But these days, I wear them proudly. It's a sign of great things to come. You certainly didn't lose the FU. Just think... A few months from now, that'll be a perfectly healthy 4 FU graft. Except then, it'll have TONS of cousins!!! Happy healing! You can never be too careful. So if oddities continue, a follow up visit to your HT surgeon may not be a bad idea.
  6. Corvettester, I've been on Finasteride for a few years now and did notice a relatively significant shed in the early stages. Enough so that I actually contacted my HT surgeon for some reassurance. That said, and this is assuming the shed had anything to do with Finasteride itself; the result was literally unnoticeable...other than the excess hairs all over the place. And, unlike you, I'm thinning into NW4 territory. I also wore my hair very long at the time. Since then, my loss (due to shedding) has practically halted and the overall quality of my hair seems to have improved.
  7. The work looks great, Southbeacharchi! I think you'll be very pleased. Just a bit of advice on documentation: Take photos. Especially if you have a decent camera handy. I...well, don't, and wish I had gone out and bought one from the get-go. Seeing where you started, versus where you'll end up, will be very inspiring for you (as this can be a LONG waiting game...sort of like watching grass grow). It will also allow some of the seasoned HT vets to give you moral support in the event that you experience some frustrating shock loss, or early uneven growth (which are quite common). All the
