  1. Thanks all. @Melvin-Moderator I will provide a fulsome update this week with pics as I have just crossed the 8-month mark. Some continuous improvement on the crown, and I'd say very minor improvement upfront (e.g. I have some growth on the hairline itself, but not much behind).
  2. This is great context @LonelyGraft. Thanks for reminding me because I believe this is also what Dr. H told me. I remember coming away thinking "ok wow, definitely not using that again". I'm not here to promote meds 1 way or the other, but hopefully this helps steer my thread away from whether using minoxidil or not has any effect. I'd rather just focus on the HT results, and given Dr. Hasson's advice to not use min, that's what I plan to do.
  3. Hi @TorontoMan Fair question and to be honest I'm not quite sure. I recall Dr. Hasson showing me something that justified his suggestions against it, but don't remember what the data was. I'll make a point to ask Doug about this when I catch up with him this month and will try to remember to get back to you on it, because now I'm curious myself.
  4. Thanks. Not really here to argue about minoxidil but I'll just say this: Dr. Hasson made it clear they don't recommend taking min. I was on it for ~3.5 years before the procedure but was still very much losing ground. My transplanted hairs are still much shorter in length than my native hairs (because I haven't had a cut yet), so the existing hair that has grown can not be simply chalked up to my transplanted hairs replacing native hairs.
  5. @asterix0 I stopped minoxidil ahead of the surgery as directed by H&W. They also tell you not to take it post-op. Just following the explicit doctors orders there... Re: fin, I take a smaller than 1mg approach EOD. It seems to have quelled most shedding, and I can tolerate it, so that's what I'm comfortable with at the moment.
  6. Thanks @LonelyGraft. I agree with your reply - not sure that has any real validity / there is no evidence that would have any impact. also FWIW - quarantine has been pretty stress-free for me in particular, so anecdotally this couldn't be more off.
  7. Thanks for checking in @Forelock. I'll get some update pics up this week. I really need a haircut because my native hair has grown considerably so it's a bit concealing on how the implanted hairs have come in.
  8. THank you @Legend007. You had a stellar result - hoping that I;m just a late bloomer.
  9. @Nearsevn have you posted pics anywhere? I'd love to see what you looked like pre-op to compare. I'm particularly curious if you had existing hair in the frontal third or if were implanted on a relatively bald patch.
  10. @CosmoKramer thanks for sharing as that is pretty interesting. I don't really have any scalp conditioins. The occasional onset of dandruff has happened in my life and then I'd always switch to an anti-dandruff shampoo and within a week or so I'd be back to normal. Post-operation, I had some really noticeable dandruff / skin shedding for the first 3ish months, but then I actually mainly fixed it by shampooing less (2-3x a week vs. every day). I typically mix in Nizoral 1x a week or every other week, but I agree that it's pretty harsh on the skin. I haven't experimented with a mi
  11. Looking awesome for this stage. Congrats man - excited to track this going forward.
  12. Hairline is looking phenomenal at this stage. congrats man. Excited to see how this progresses through the rest of the year.
  13. Hey man - just catching back up on your thread. Wanted to say you're looking great. This is the growth I was hoping for at this stage haha! You're crown results at 5 months and your hairline in the above pics are looking really improved. Excited to see where you're at in come the end of the year!
  14. Thank you @aaron1234. There definitely could be some shock loss going on in the frontal third because of my existing decent density there. Very fair point. I think I mentioned it but I'll re-state here. I take a smaller dose of fin 3x a week. It seems to have generally kept me stable over the last ~year. Unfortunately i did experience sides with a full 1mg each day. I've also been doing a little research on the topical fin options but being in the US I think prevents me from having any options there at the moment.
