My one month post op pics

Nothing is going to grow at one month. After surgery the grafts seem like they may be growing for a couple days or even weeks. Usually they fall out, and then you go into a 3 month dormant phase, where it seems like nothing is happening.

 

You're probably in the dormant phase now.

 

Did your doctor explain this to you already?

Billydett,

 

Arfy is right. At 1 month post-op you should be looking pretty much exactly like you did pre-op. You may have a few transplanted hairs that didn't shed hanging on, but that's about it.

 

You should start really sprouting around month 4 or 5. Before that, it's difficult to assess what is going on up there.

 

Do you have any photos of the area directly post-op?

My doctor did not really explain about the dormant phase. The nurse said the hairs will start to grow in at 4 months, and get thicker by 6 months. Sorry I have no 1 day post op pics, but I will be taking pics each month to monitor any progress.

You know what Billy I think having a transplant in your case was a mistake. I mean come on your a Lions fan for crying out loud. Watching them will have you hair falling out all over again!

At this point I am not sure. I do believe taht I am growing very small thin hairs. I did experience shock loss in the donor area mostly but it has stopped. As they said, month 4 is when it is supposed to start sprouting, and its upward from there and thats what I hope happens. It can be nerve racking so I try not to let it get to me and just hope for the best I am not sure if you can tell too much from these pics? Do you believe there is any difference in month1 and 3?
