    Do you think I need one?

    How old are you? How long did it take to go from your youthful full head of hair to where you are now? What are your goals?
  2. I am an avid cyclist and getting regular exercise is especially important for me since I suffer from type II diabetes. Tomorrow I will be 10 days post FUT and want to understand if cycling is likely to create issues with the donor scar. I will , of course, carefully consider my docs advice, but I was curious if others have experiences with this. Cycling requires the rider to (mostly) raise their head, which I guess would release tension in the area around the donor scar, rather than increase it. Thanks for your insights!

    My hair transplant with Dr. Bernstein, New York

    How did it work out for you?
  4. I had a FUT procedure with him yesterday. Overall a good experience, but too early to really tell about results. My impression of the Dr. Bernstein is he wants his patients to have realistic expectations. He’s not selling. He would rather do 2 sessions than 1 mega session, so that he can fine tune the ultimate outcome. Some people are looking for a more gung ho doc, but I’m fine with the more conservative approach. Best of luck!
  5. Going in for a full day FUT tomorrow morning. What can you do to pass the time while the docs do their thing? What can’t you do? When? For example, can you wear earphones during strip removal? During graft placement? Looking for tips! Thanks!
  6. This is my first post, so thank you for your indulgence. I have an FUT procedure scheduled for next month. My doctors treatment plan included prednisone for 6 days during and post procedure. I am diabetic and my endocrinologist is concerned that prednisone will dramatically elevate my blood sugar. The FUT surgeon says for a diabetic they can skip the prednisone. My question is how skipping the prednisone is likely to affect the surgical and recovery process? Thanks again.
