  1. These pics are form around three days post op, sorry for the poor quality.
  2. The tension lessens as the swelling goes down but until the staples come out you'll still feel a slight tightness. I felt pretty normal after 7-10 days but the real change comes when you get the staples out after 2 weeks there is no tension or discomfort after that, I'm at the five week mark today and I've still got some redness but apart from that everything else is completely normal.
  3. Yea it's still a little numb although no where near as much as it was. Its only along the line of the scare and even thats gaining more feeling, its something that improves over time. Its was pretty strange feeling at first, almost as if you had something stuck to the back of your head, it didn't feel like the back of your head if that makes any sense. I think it took around two to three days for the swelling to full come out and about another four days after for it to disappear. It started in the forehead and slowly travelled down around my eyes but as soon as it did it slowly disappeared.
  4. The first few days are the worst but things do improve pretty quickly you just have to bear with it for those first few days, thankfully for me I stayed in New York for the three days after the op so had plenty to keep my mind busy. But I know how you feel about the lack of sleep, its really frustrating, within the next few days though it will get better!! Trust me though Dr Feller does a wicked job, when you get the staples out you'll be surprised how good it looks. I've still got redness on top and around the area where the staples were but its lessening everyday. I will mate I'm going to po
  5. Following Dr Feller's post op instructions i slept at a 45 degree angel for the first three nights after that i slept normally all bit it with trying not to put to much weight on the staples. Yea, it was a great relief to finally get them out, I looked forward to that day!! Not only because they were so annoying but it meant I could finally get back to training and get my hair cut. How did the procedure go for you? How many grafts did have?
  6. I didn't get the exact number of grafts off of Dr Feller but it was somewhere around 2700, for me it was more to do with having to sleep upright although it was still uncomfortable to lie on them. After round 4 to 7 days the tenderness started to reduce and became easier to fall asleep. I found that tucking my pillow up so i could lie my head on the pillow but not on the staples helped a lot but it was still difficult. Trust me the tenderness will fade just hang in there.
  7. Hi, I'm 26 and have been noticeably losing my hair for about two years. Over the two years I've battled with the thought of losing my hair and what I could do about it. It was from forums such as this that I gained a lot of valuable information and where I also heard about Spex. After reading about Spex and his story I arranged to met with him to discuss my hair loss and the options available to me. Straight after met him I felt a sense of relief, finally the answer I was after. I began taking Propecia (finasteride), starting off on a low dose and gradually building up over a few mon
