Thank you for the encouragement, as this makes me feel a lot better? Would you say based on the pictures I provided (including the more recent ones I put in my most recent post) that I am safe for now not to do anything drastic like take Propecia or Rogaine at this point? It doesn't don't know if my hair had gotten worse or not in the past year, as the one picture I have on my hairline is only on my right side and is a bit blurry and at a weird angle. I don't remember the temples looking as thin as they do now, but I don't really trust my memory for that.
That said, two dermatologists did tell me I had nothing to worry about for now, so I should probably just trust that. I am actually going back to see the one that did the biopsy in two weeks for a three month followup to see if the telogen effluvium they diagnosed me with has cleared up. I plan to ask them to compare the pictures they took back then with my crown and my hairline to see if they notice any change, as well as inquire about doing a miniaturization study.at some point (since another fear of mine is that there is miniaturization that I'm not noticing due to having always had very thick hair)
Dr rahal tops my list and I'm also a fan of Dr hasson
I would like to know how many surgeries were performed at the day of this patients surgery , who did the incisions and who planted the grafts and which team was involved.
Just a quick correction to my original quote , I said that BT forum was corrupt, I was a bit out of line there certainly didn't mean it but this is a topic I am passionate about so emotions can run high.
I remember very well the anxiety I felt in my mid 20s when I first started experiencing the fear of hair loss... And knowing what I know now, the best advice I can give you is to trust that whatever comes your way you can handle it. There's no magic pill or formula to make any hair loss stop completely. There's Propecia and Rogaine, but based on the information you provided above, I'm not sure it's even necessary.
I suggest you look into ways to effectively manage your anxiety and trust that should the time come when you need to look into treatment, you can step up to the plate and take care of it like so many men do - and keep your fingers crossed it never becomes something you need to deal with anyway.
