Why is shock loss an issues? all the hair grows back regardless

I would think starting oral minox a week later after surgery will help hair grown back earlier and stronger. ..that's what I did and I see hair growing back at 2 months + 5 days.

Preventing shock loss post-op is very difficult because the trauma is already induced and shock loss as we know is how the scalp responds to it.

Pre-op measures IMHO have more merit.
