Greetings my fellow Norwoods, I am a long time lurker and forum goer who is undergoing a HT next week to restore my temples and hairline. I wanted to create this account and thread now because I will return in 6-12 months to provide a very detailed write up of my hair loss history, my fully documented HT procedure and everything valuable I have learned over the years that can help others on their journey. I prefer to stay off the forums during the post-op period in an effort to not think about hair too much. I've done the same when I've made treatment logs in the past and find it much easier on the spirit than constant updates and question answering. At 6 months I will post pre-op, post op, 1 month, 3 month and 6 month results and answer questions. Then at 12 months I will do the same for the 8, 10 and 12 month marks. From bloodying my scalp with Dermastamps to clandestine dark alley encounters with fellow forum goers to split our Chinese research chemical shipments, I've gone to great lengths to try and regrow hair and avoid venturing down the HT path. Having been unsuccessful in those efforts, but thankfully successful in stabilizing hair loss and maintaining the hair I have left, it is now the appropriate time to try the final solution ie transplantation. I'm not thrilled that it has had to come to this, but alas, this is my only choice. I am however excited but cautiously optimistic about living as a HT patient and look forward to sharing everything with you all in the near future. By for now, NW3
