  2. :confused:may be its all in my head bonker but regardless i still felt very un steady about it to the point i stayed another day extra and booked a new flight and paid for another night in hotel hoping things would improve.. but it took 2 weeks for all signs to go away over my face swelling and fluid!? my eyes was so bad in the airport i couldnt see out of one no joke i promise u so as i personaly know how my body reacts as ive been in the situation before all i can draw on is that the very next day i was still looking ok over my face but had an head like a egg head so this time around im gonna take two valium and tramadol and fly home in looking better on the 2nd day than i did for the next 2 weeks!!!?? im not sure if it was a high security alert day at the airport or wat but i was taken and questioned and was very anxiouse about it also entering was embarressing in the arrivals cue in front of every one i was question by the arrivals officer about the reason of my visit had to hand him the h&w sheet explaining why!?? bit of bummer...:confused: so my excape plan now is to get the hell home before the swelling and fluid drops around my eyes........... im also gunna use a head band under the cap to hold it up abit and a big cap and glasses lol
  3. thanks very much for the words of encouragment i know it sounds silly but traveling home again is my biggest worry!!!! the surgery doesnt phase me at all after having a megasession already i know what im in for and i have complete faith in dr feller so im not worried at all about that!!!! i guess after the troublesome journey home from vancouver canada i guess im still well abit worried!!!!! and your story about your experiance home from hewyork has made me feel alot better actualy so cheers for adding to the thread!? how many grafts u had!??? if it wasnt for my poor leg i was due to be flying home on the 3rd of jan so id be healing by now a right shame but everything happens for a reason! may be it was to allow me to earn more money for more grafts lol hair greed kiking in already i aint even had it yet lol
  4. calling all dr feller patients or indeed people who travel over seas and back again! during my last procedure i traveled home 2 may be 3 days after the surgery and the fluid from the op just sat around my face and no word of lie it was the most embarresed id been all my life lol i swear some people thought i had cancer as i was wearing a surgical bandana thingy! but it was safe for the grafts so i just thought to hell with people but.......... looking back!? i beleive i would have been better traveling home the very next day before the swelling and fluid dropped to pass through security and customs not looking so odd!!!!!!!!! i even got approached by customs officials in departure and questioned etc leaving canada!!! 6ft 5in tall and wearing a dodgey bandana traveling alone with a small back as i only stayed 4days i guess seemed dodgey!? even though there was no problems after i explained my situation it was still humiliating whilst having a head in the order you see most imiediate post op pics i was very anxiouse!? any tips help and usefull info to help me avoid situations like the above and make a easy transition avoiding as much attention on route home wil be greatlfuly received??? thanks for reading:D
  5. im sure it just common hygene and health concern ie any bacteria would increase the risk foliculitis or infection to scar perhaps especialy if the pets jump or lay down on pillows an what not where you may put your head down etc:D
  6. great reading and result so looking forward to my dr feller ht even more now
  7. thanks for your concern and imput in the thread!!!!! im kinda like in my mind and In my eyes dr feller is the best man for the job at this stage and once i make a choice i stick to it once its set in my mind its final!!!!! the lost cash will be repaid with a quality job and thats all i care about ie result is paramount you cant put a price tag on happyness

  10. i was taking dut every other day with finest everyday inbetween just thought finest would be sufficant with out the dut but im wrong!!!??? trying to get some oral minox is hard as my gp wont give it me and my bank wont let me transfer money abroad to dr path to get it sent over!!??? any suggestions guys to get cash to dr pat? with out bank charges
  11. thanks matt for your logical explanation and answers cheers it makes perfect sense what you say i totaly agree that the stoppage of the oral minox combined with the seasonal shed due to the severe climate changes has resulted in a brutal shed also the darker hair with the sun tan i had fading has resulted in more noticable thin patches this combined with the dutas being stopped in place for fin would create a hormonal change which in turn could also magnify the already brutal shedding!!!!!!!!! what do you think the correct way to proceed to ensure maximum regrowth would be??? start the dutas again and oral minox ??? is this hair likely to return? cheers for your time:D
  12. hey guys im really confused with this gordan ramsay affair!!???? did any one else notice this????????? i saw the pics of him after surgery and he still had alot of swelling both from the trauma and saline there for the pics of him with david b and family in new york must have been with in 1 week of surgery!!!!! as my swelling went after a week there for i find it odd how if he had strip of fue then how come he was not shaved down how come his donor and recipient areas where unoticable in terms of work done ie no shaved donor with removal holes visible no shaved recipient site... the only visible signs of a transplant was the swelling!!!!!??????? im completely confused coz after my surgery i looked like i had a brain operation!!??????? any input or thoughts on this:D
  13. im at 6 months now but it did seem alot fuller before the xmas period and the growth at 4 months was very noticable now how ever things are looking worse not better an im trying to pin point why!!!?? scar stretching is a strong possibility an one that i have emailed dr hasson about infact im having to send him some pics now this weeks so i will upload what i can to the forum for you guys too!!! due to the scar stretch and the possibility of a revision im allready planning my next ht to resolve things!!! im prob going to go back to dr H next year or at least nxt jan for a revision and some extra grafts was hoping for another 3000!!! then that would be my last strip session and i would utilise fue to fill in the trip scar and any thin patches!!!?? but some thing i have done in the last month has resulted in a shed!!?? climate change styling products styling my hair booze smoking hair coloured stopage of duta an oral minox for finest and lotion minox? im starting back on the dutas and ordering some oral minox now to see if that makes a difference!!?? any input guys would be great pics comeing soon taking them tommorrow to send to dr hasson!! at 6 months post op how much growth can i reasonably expect to see in the next 6 months!!?? coz i need alot more thickening
  14. hey matt thanks for your in put its very much appreciated.............. i was using dutas one day then finest the next and switched to just finest about 3 weeks ago!? would the stoppage of dutas be to blame so quickly? i think its a combo of things, more styling,less dutas less oral minox,seasonal shed due to weather been home 3 months now, lack of sleep partying to much booze etc etc and i coloured my hair for xmass!!!! im bummed abit as it was looking good do you think starting the dutas again would help do the trick !!!?? cheers man for the help and time taken to evaluate the reasons etc if you hav any mor questions just ask would the hair lost from the stoppage dutas come back again!? ive only been off dutas 3 weeeks ish cheers
  15. ok well whilst in bangkok after my ht for 4months my hair was coming in nice after my 3500 ht with dr h!!!! then i returned home for the xmas period and now my hair looks thinner than ever!!!!???? i beleive that the following factords are to blame!! seasonal differences between hot bangkok n ice cold uk lack of sleep due to partying over xmas ive stopped using minox oral and resumed the lotion ive stopped the dutas in my regiment and am now on finest and i have been styling my hair with products for the first time after hair spray and toppik use? and my scar is looking bad on the sides over the ears!? and to say the least my hair is looking very thin!!???? now even more so than before the xmas period!!?? i just think what your take on this is!!?? should i resume the oral minox and the dutas or will finest an minox lotion do? does toppik damage hair quality? could shock loss still be a factor now at 6 months post op on scar on sides???? im getting pictures taken tomoz to high light the areas!!??
