  1. Thanks for sharing this bud. Wish you a speedy recovery of the donor and growth for the transplanted hair
  2. Brilliant bud. You finally did it. Hairline looks natural.Look forward to the pictures. All the best for tmw :)
  3. Hey mate. Great growth and journey. Just wondering why are you taking Finasteride as its not for the new transplanted hair. Are you taking it to keep the existing hair in good form? Thanks
  4. Hey mate. Wish you all the best. Can I ask, why are you taking Finasteride as its not required for new transplanted hair?
  5. Thanks mate. I have been told that new Hair are not dependent on Fin so dont see any reason to take it. Existing hair may stay on for another 10 year I think.
  6. Cheers mate. That is why I cleared up with the doctor as its only for existing hair and HT hair is not dependent on it. I definitely wont be taking it. Long term use can cause hormonal imbalances and prostate cancer so I would suggest to keep an eye. All the best mate.
  7. Thanks mate. What happens once you stop taking the medicine or do you plan to take for coming years?
  8. Hey mate. I nearly booked with Dr Bhatti but in the end going ahead with Eugenix in December. Did you contact them yet? Would be good to know more folks who are looking at Eugenix. Cheers
  9. Wow !! What a feedback. Mild drug? Mate , you really need to do a bit of a research. My decision is after consulting the doctors in Ireland. Below are the most common side effects of Finasteride: impotence, Prostate cancer loss of interest in sex, trouble having an orgasm, abnormal ejaculation, swelling in your hands or feet, swelling or tenderness in your breasts, dizziness, weakness, feeling like you might pass out, headache, runny nose, or skin rash. Please dont spread false details about a drug that has left many in distressed state and calling it a mild medicine !! Just to give you some information, Transplanted hair is not dependent on Fin. The donor hair follicles are genetically different from the follicles that are effected by male pattern baldness. Donor follicles are not sensitive to normal levels of dehydroxytestosterone (DHT). Once transplanted to areas of balding scalp these follicles will continue to produce living hair. Finasteride lowers DHT levels reducing the effect on native (non-transplanted) follicles and by doing so helps to control progression of male pattern baldness. Hair restoration specialists use Propecia and Minoxidil preparations in conjunction with hair transplantation not to maintain the transplanted hair but to prevent as much as possible loss of native hair from the balding scalp. Hope you get the point. Fin is not needed for new transplanted hair.
  10. Exact 6 months to go for my HT from today. In past few months, I have done some research on Finasteride and due to its association with side effects, I have decided not to take it after my HT. I had a call with Dr Sethi and he has mentioned that Fin is not for the new transplanted hair but to keep the existing hair and therefore taking this medicine is optional. I am a bit of a fitness freak so there is no way I want to put my health in danger. I would love to know the views of other patients who did not take Finasteride and did it affect the growth of the transplanted hair.
  11. You can compare the two with the results posted by the members on this forum and that should help you decide.
