Wondering if anyone has been on blood thinners (anticoagulants) post-op, and whether it’s had any negative effect on the growth of their transplanted hair? 

I know cessation of blood thinners is necessary pre-op and during the surgery itself, but wondering whether resuming their use soon after the surgery is something anyone has had experience with or can comment on? 

Thanks

I was put on Rat Poison (Warfarin) in 2009, but I believe I was on Pradaxa by 2011 when I had my first transplant and it turned out great.  I am only 2 months into this transplant so I can't comment on that.

NO complications here - had to stop 5 days prior but went back on immediately.

You definitely want to ask your surgeon about this as far as when to resume the thinners post-op....I think most would want to wait at least 10-12 days post-op.
