  1. @therealmvp2016 these symptoms are certainty related to medication you are taking for hair loss. Oral minoxidil 5mg in particular has shown to cause a high growth surge in other areas apart from the scalp, which in this case you say its the palms of your hands. However your sex drive could be greatly reduced and you will have no desire to do it so it will have no negative effect in your case. .............Paddy..........
  2. @ukpaitent be careful with oral minoxidil if you have, or there is a history of heart issues in the family. .............Paddy..........
  3. In my opinion you would be only dancing around the issue. When you are on the table you should give it your best shot. No point in half going it.The amount of grafts you mentioned would be only for a tiny tiny area. I think you should push forward and discuss everything with your Doctor. As you are going to go there eventually . All the best Josh . .......Paddy..... ....
  4. @elicochin . Hello Josh. I have posted a thread about my recent experience for scalp and beard doner with information and tips and pictures you will find usefull for your journey. ............Paddy........
  5. If you rince cold water on your scalp for 2 minutes this will cause more blood to flow there. As always a good balanced diet with lots of nutrients will greatly help. Drinking plenty of water will increase the circulation and blood flow. All the best ......Paddy....
  6. @azazelgs You can discuss your concerns with your doctor. Any doctor that is recommended on this forum will discuss every detail with you. If you still have those concerns you can possibly go back to your original plan of FUT. ...........................Paddy....................
  7. @Zoomster Thanks for your appreciation and kind words. Your own trip to Eugenix is just around the corner. I will have some more updates and top tips posted before you travel. Thanks again . ...........Paddy.......
  8. @elicochin you could also consider concentrating on the front and mid scalp and as far back you can go. Leave your crown alone for now. See how your doner is when things settle down , take it one step at a time. ........................Paddy......................
  9. UPDATE AFTER HEADWASH , 2 WEEKS AFTER HT. HIGH MAINTENANCE IS OVER. ALL THE CRUSTS WERE REMOVED A WEEK AGO. THE REDNESS IN THE RECIPENT IS FADING EACH DAY. THERE IS STILL NUMBNESS ALL OVER THERE STILL. THE DONER AREA IS HEALING VERY WELL , AND THE WELCOME SIGN OF HAIR GROWING AGAIN IS GOOD TO SEE. THE NUMBNESS IN THE DONER AREA IS 95 % DISAPPEARED AND I EXPECT IT TO BE GONE COMPLETLY IN 3 OR 4 DAYS FROM NOW. UNDER THE CHIN AND BELOW THE JAWLINE WHERE NEARLY 700 BEARD GRAFTS WERE EXTRACTED HAS COMPLETELY HEALED UP AND NOBODY WOULD KNOW ANYTHING HAPPENED THERE INCLUDING MY SELF. .....ALL THE BEST FOR NOW.... ....................PADDY.................
  10. TOP TIP TO SLEEP WITHOUT DAMAGING YOUR NEWLY IMPLANTED GRAFTS : @duchaine I was also concerned about sleeping on my back , to protect the newly implanted grafts. I used a neck pillow on top of a regular low pillow, then put a big pillow either side of myself pinned in tightly under your arms down to your waist. It will be impossible to turn over on your side without wakening and realising what you are doing. Remember you will have the neck pillow as well. If your tired , and also you are taking your medication late at night before you go to bed, you will have no problem at all. I only had to do this for 7 nights. I never sleep on my back before my HT, and I had no problem at all.
  11. @ndubya You are having a mix of beard grafts and scalp hairs in the fall , which Doctor and Clinic are you planning on going to ? .........Paddy.......
  12. @Looking for HT I was given a 100 ml version of the saline spray for the plane, this is it in the picture. Eugenix advised me to spray every 2 hours. ( Not every 20 or 30 minutes ) When I went to bed I did not have to get up to spray the saline spray. Its not important when you go to bed, but if you wake up to use the toilet you can take that opportunity to spray it . .................Paddy...........
  13. IM very please as it looks like nothing has touched my skin No scaring to been seen at all. ......Paddy.....
  14. @DThak I didnt shave untill after 14 days after Surgery, but this was a personel choice. Dr. Shishir told me I could shave after 7 days , which I could have if I wanted. I used a beard trimmer after 7 days to tidy the beard up, as its quicker than shaving, and I wasnt going to anything public so I didnt need to be shaving. .........Paddy.......
