Early growth in 70 year old after radiation therapy, by Dr Lindsey

Here's an early update on one of my closest friends.  He had radiation therapy that definitely hit his donor region 5 years ago.  After 19 years of talking about surgery, we got him in the chair Dec 19 and he sent 4 month pics on April 19 showing its starting to grow. 

Additionally, his donor scar is awesome...common in 70 year old guys as they have lost 70% of the "stuff" that pulls the skin and makes scars worse.... but that it is really good with no shockloss around the scarline in an irradiated field is even better.

He is one of the most upbeat guys I know...and I do think that having a good attitude more often that not...is associated with early growth.  Contrast that to another of my friends who has more of a "woe is me" attitude on life..and he's definitely slower growing even though he has bushy hair to work with and no radiation exposure.

We'll get updates on him and a final result and likely video come Christmas time.
