Getting a taste of my own medication - My hair transplant journey initiates...

Recommended Posts

Walk the talk!
 
Hi! My name is Abhinay and I’m bald (bald people anonymous anyone?)
 
So I’m the bald guy posting all of these results from our Eugenix Hair Sciences. As destiny would have it, my scalp has finally gotten ready to undergo the procedure. Its amazing and overwhelming at the same time. 
 
I know that the Doctors have had this keen eye for covering my bald scalp for the longest of time. I am just glad that I was not kidnapped to be transplanted upon. I had this tremendous fear regarding the surgery. I am an IT professional and medical stuff is the last thing that I understand. I joined in fairly recently to take up the role of Operations head at Eugenix. 
 
Life has never been the same again. I did not know that this job required so much of energy and is in a continuous and never ending flow. That being said, I have obviously seen too many patients come in and go out after the procedure. I have seen young people as well as old people come in and get the procedure done. 
 
It would be embarassing to chicken out now!!! But on a serious note, I think I do want to have a good amount of hair on my head. 
 
My hair resembles a surf wave now. The entire hair from one side is combed over to the other to hide my baldness. It is no surprise that I am phobic of even the slightest gusts of wind. Actually I’m phobic of a lot of things – rain, swimming, jogging etc etc. I seem to have copied Trump’s hairstyle. The only difference is that he is orange and I’m not.
 
I have seen so many of my colleagues get it done here too – Nelson, Dr. Shishir, Anil, Adarsh, Nitesh, Debashish… and so on and so forth. Seeing so many experimental bunnies and being around them everyday (and knowing how extremely low their threshold of pain is), I have gained confidence gradually to go for the procedure.
 
So tomorrow is the day I get sacrificed to the God of hair. Kidding! 
 
I’m very excited for tomorrow and I have this bittersweet nervousness around me. 
 
Fingers crossed that I don’t start crying like a little girl when seeing the injections… 
 
Have a look at my gorgeous pre surgery face below.

So yeah... my scalp is no longer a virgin (cries silently within). I was so worried in the morning about the procedure. Finally I understand how scary it must be for people who come all the way from other countries to get the procedure done. This has been a learning experience for me. I think I will be able to empathise more from now on.

The first injection was the relief point. I realised that its not painful at all when they gave me the first injection. It felt like a huge rock had been taken off my shoulders. Sometimes our stress is more painful than the actual phenomenon that we are worried about.

2200 grafts later, I feel like somebody has given me a good thrashing. Laying down for such a long time was tedious (this is so not supposed to be a third world problem! I sound like such a diva!!!). Nelson told me that I looked like a corpse being autopsied.

I am actually very very surprised that it is not painful at all. Or maybe i feel that because I'm such a dude (winks). But on a serious note, its not at all painful. I was watching tv, listening to songs, dozing off... 

So, one more awesome thing that is just making me feel so so happy is that I will have to continue sleeping like a corpse for the next seven days (silent crying continues...) And... my procedure is left for tomorrow as well. 

I think my wife has put lesser efforts in her beautification than what I'm doing. (Sighs!)

So, below are the pictures of me turning into a butterfly... metamorphosis...

Congratulations @Abhinay Singh  Well done. You look great now, 😁

And you will look even better in 6 months time.  It will be my turn next week , its very reassuring to hear its not painfull at all. ( As I am probably a bigger scary cat than you )  

Best wishes for the finish of your HT tomorrow. Please let us know what position etc you slept in and how did it go spraying the saline spray etc.

All the best Abhinay.

Thank you Sir. @paddyirishman. Right I am very much confident about my result. I am really surprised that there is no pain at all. My procedure was performed under local anesthetic and there was no discomfort not even minor one. In fact I did "Bala challenge" during my surgery. Since yesterday procedure was done on my frontal part only, I am told to sleep straight on my back. I am using saline spray in every two hours.

My surgery has been completed today. After what seemed like an eternity with all the grafts being counted one by one, the last remaining graft counts kept booming inside my head. 

So now I'm headed off home for a good sleep and will be back to work tomorrow. 

Here's a picture of me today...

Total no. of Grafts 4596 taken from scalp.

@paddyirishman  Yesterday I got my surgery done and today I am working with my team. Dr Pradeep used to tell me that to understand the procedure I have to get my surgery done and today I am more energetic in my work. Met with many  patients today and shared my experiences with them which I have learnt during my two days surgery.. So boss is always right and they (Dr Pradeep and Dr Arika) are not only a great doctors but they are true mentors for all Eugenix team.

I have completed 4 days today and I am taking medication. I have been spraying saline water in every two hours. I have got some swelling. I am doing exercise to avoid swelling on my forehead. There is no pain and my donor area is getting healed.  I am wearing surgical cap. 

 

We did some candid photography in office.

Wow! That is massive coverage, @Abhinay Singh

It definitely helps that you appear to have a very large supply of healthy donor hair. You must have been an ideal patient for Eugenix.

By the way, you did a masterful job of disguising the bald spot prior to the HT -- I'd never have guessed that there was baldness. 

Really looking forward to seeing your progress in upcoming months. All the best!

So I'm back with my update after 20 days. Same old thing revolving around my head - still can't believe that I actually went ahead and got the procedure done.

I am yet to see the results but I am confident I will have a great output. 

I am not losing much hair due to shedding. I've started my meds and now I am looking forward to my second PRP session after 10 days.
