  1. I would specifically ask your doctor to be safe. From my 3 FUT ( the FUE was minor) experience, the main caution is excess tension on the donor area ( I'm not talking the first week or so which is certainly off limits). Heavy or significant lifting is a stressful activity which causes pressure, especially when breathing is not correct. Cardio is not biggie as long as you are not running a marathon or killing it. light weights and moderate cardio was fine for me and after 2 months or so I was back to regular lifting with a cautionary mindset AND deliberate breathing. At the end of the
  2. Best thing I ever did! I'm sure you will find those people who went to "good doctors" will have a positive response while those who have had "botched" HT's the opposite. Sounds simple but sometimes that is the way it goes
  3. Hi I certainly took it easy the first week or so but after, I began light cardio. Shortly after, I started LIGHT weights and then by the time my stitches were out, I was working out regulary ( still very light with very deliberate breathing so not to stretch the donor area). I would say by about 3 months I was back to normal BUT i'm not a powerlifter or anything. Your doctor will give you a post op document which gives you a time frame
  4. There were some great docs mentioned in this post. You seem like an ideal candidate and 4000 grafts would certainly "fix" things for now. The challenge is you future loss pattern is unknown and as you are not on Propecia, you might lose future hair. Speak with a couple docs and see who you like the best
  5. I cannot say I agree with you as the majority of these "natural" treatments have little if any documented truth. Studies aside, I have personally tried so many of these without any marginal results ( I'm talking thousands of dollars) . I might add that "natural treatments" can have side effects as do any foreign object you but in your body, especially supplements Good luck if you are having results but to those out there seeking a legit treatment with proven results, stick to the proven treatments your doctor will suggest.
  6. Yes, there are always exceptions but unfortunately for most of the people on this site , it is simple male pattern baldness.
  7. The whole purpose of a HT is to transplant hair which is DHT resistant from the sides to the top. If this is done correctly, you should have the hair for a long time .
  8. Supplements are not going to help you regain your hair - stick to the proven treatments!
  9. I'm with MJ - I have tried every supplement known to man over the course of 20 years and nothing worked My bet is to stick to the proven treatments which show proof , time and time again!
  10. Hariri, I wouldnt say Fin causes ED - correlation does not equate to causation. I have been on Fin for 10 years or so without any "penile" side effects.
  11. I like Spankers answer. Tough to predict and some people lose their hair rapidly while others recede and then the hairloss stops. Through in the whole age factor and hairloss can come , progress and stop at anytime!
  12. There is no "right" answer to your question - depends on what you want in your life. I never wanted to be bald, it just did't sit well with me. Others seem to be ok with it and move on in life. I guess this can be said for any characteristic in life - At the end of the day, you need to be happy
  13. I think it is important to note these are "exceptions" to correlate to hairloss. Most of the people on this site suffer from simple MPB . It is completely normal to think several different factors are causing your hairloss ( shampoos, hats, diet, stress). I'm sure the homeless people on the street do not eat a balanced diet yet many have a full head of hair ( along with the people seen on late TV who are starving).
  14. I have learned one thing from my 4 HT's - Scalp exercises can increase your yield ! I did them in prep for my 3rd HT ( Dr. True said I can certainly do them but do not expect anything dramatic). To both of our surprise, I was able to have the highest graft count of all of my procedures!
