Exact 6 months to go for my HT from today.
In past few months, I have done some research on Finasteride and due to its association with side effects, I have decided not to take it after my HT.
I had a call with Dr Sethi and he has mentioned that Fin is not for the new transplanted hair but to keep the existing hair and therefore taking this medicine is optional.
I am a bit of a fitness freak so there is no way I want to put my health in danger.
I would love to know the views of other patients who did not take Finasteride and did it affect the growth of the transplanted hair.
Thanks for sharing your stories here. This forum is all about transparency and I would ask everyone to come forward if they have bad experience not just with Dr Bhatti but any other doctor in the forum. I myself would have gone with Dr Bhatti should there not be so many connecting flights from Europe. The above post is an eye opener !!
