  1. I can see ur hair finally raising up Hope the scars have healed up well and is not noticeable now as u r keeping ur hair very short.
  2. Yes Rambler, so far am happy with the progress. Just waiting for the frontal transplanted hair to thicken up a bit and grow in length
  3. I am staying alone now and dont have anyone to take a pic of the donor now. Personally I dont think the shock loss is there anymore. But I will confirm it in 2 weeks once I visit my family.
  4. Thanks. Now I am waiting for it to thicken up and to get some length in my hair to see how much I can cover my crown
  5. Yes. Dr K did tell me to take Fin but I was against it. I had taken Minox like 6 months back before the transplant and now I started getting acne. I am not sure if its related to this but I never had acne in my life before and the only things I had taken recently was Minox and Nizoral both of which I have stopped temporarily now. I am not that greedy of a person for hair ( hope I wont change my statement later when I have further loss ). I know I wont take any meds which might have the possibility of a side effect. I will try to use concealers on my crown as long as I can along with growing out my hair longer and combing it back ( which i like ). Lets see how long I can push it. And dr K said I have good caliber hair. And another 3000+ easily available. So I am going to use it very carefully later on. Very much later on as my face has been framed well as of now .
  6. I felt so lazy and was totally busy which made me not spend time to take some good quality pics. But something is better than nothing so I took a few from my phone. So finally had a haircut after 4.5 months. Feels good to be normal again without the hanging gardens of hair on my sides Did not touch my top transplanted hair during the haircut. There is a slight transition of hair on the back where the donor hair was taken from after the haircut but its very negligible.
  7. Sorry guys. Had been busy of late. Took a few pics with my iphone before the haircut. I am pleased so far with the results.
  8. Looking good. Looks like the scar has healed very well. Did you know the shockloss had gone before you went to the barber?
  9. So finally I have hit the month 3 mark and I can say I am finally seeing some growth on my hairline and my new hairline is almost visible to me now . I can say now I look like someone with hairloss rather than a bald person. I still look like how I was before the transplant. Once the hairline thickens up, i think the difference would kick in. I am waiting for the 5 month mark so that i can go and have a haircut and cut off the sides as the sides seems to grow 2X times the top hair.I don't want to cut the sides now as it might expose the shock loss around the donor area. I spread out my hair ( whatever hair I have ) and go for work. But once its brought close together, you can see I still have a big area to cover. Hopefully Dr K's magic will become obvious in the coming 2 months.
  10. Nice change in hair around the donor area this month. Covering up nicely. Is the current hairline what was planned or is the new hairline yet to come?
  11. I had my surgery on a Thursday. So took Thu and Fri off. Travelled back from chicago on Sat and took 3 days work from home. So in short managed to squeeze in a week without going to office. One thing I wanted to make sure was to avoid even wearing a cap for the 1st week. Even while buying food near the clinic or walking in the motel, i was without a cap. I knew places near Konior's office would be used to seeing patients like me so it did not bother me a bit
  12. I too felt the pea sized lump on the left end of my donor in the begining. But it's been reducing in size over time so i guess it would just even out in a couple of months as a part of the healing process.
