  1. and if that is the case why would so many people state side effects etc; what is there to gain here other than to affect product sales - who & why would they do that, personally i think you are being very naive - people have opinions and they may differ to yours but you cant therefore just rubbish them
  2. i would advise not researching anything on that board. It's full of innacurate stories and hysteria and what makes that board any different to any other or is just you dont like the stories on there?
  3. my honest opinion is to not bother with propecia etc. i have been on it for 8 years abd have stopped now for 3 months. i agree with all your symptoms; also god knows what else it is doing. you should research propeciahelp website
  4. hi there, what probs exactly are you getting with propecia? also how old are you IMO i think your hair looks good and natural there's no diffuse thinning going on in the hair
  5. Bill/Admin People should definitely do a lot of research before starting to take this medicine. I'm afraid to say that too many people are extremely keen to get on this medication without knowing what potentially could happen to them. People should research the propecia help forums - this drug IMO is not a magic 100% cure and the side effects should not be understated. I personally think there are too many people in denial of what this drug does to their bodies.
  6. Members 54 posts Posted Today, 02:32 PM Guys, i havent been here for a long time But I have used propecia for quite some time and I certainly reckon the side effects are real - maintaining an erection etc for sure I really would like to hear other people's honest opinions - some of the guys who have been using this stuff for a number of years are you kidding yourself that it doesnt affect you or are you still "working" the same as before? I hear there's an article today in the guardian again about it. THe bottom line is it's going to affect your testosterone - keen to understand what the guy's view who posted here about his score being 12 and how we could boost? Did the doctor indicate it should increase again or could you try patches? I have been on propecia on and off now for best part of 10 yrs and in that time I would say I have been effected. [/center]

  8. Mate - I couldn't agree more. Being in the same position as your good self I can only endorse what you are saying. We've just come back from a week in the sun. Wait til you try flying with them, 5 hours on a plane, both with one on your knee - happy days
  9. Thanks - I agree I think at the moment there's too much contrast in two areas 1 - on the crown to the top 2 - from the shock (which is expected) to the hair above and below - it makes the 'overhang' as such stick out and exagerate the 'shock' do you feel a spray on concealer is better than the 'boot polish' approach of Couvre and where is Mane purchased from? I came up with a little trick that helped me with this... I too had shock loss very similar. I always cut my own hair... and have a buzzer... (shaving razor thing) I shaved all the hair under the scar very low.. grade 1... this meant the shock loss area didnt stand out... then I left 1" above the scar to grow 1" in length to cover the scar/shock... and then shaved down the rest to a grade 1 on top.. this sounds strange but it did work to cover the shock area. Here...look at this old pic I took of mine... I am holding up the 1" hair I let grow over the scar to show you.... it isnt easy to see the extra bit I let grow above the scar unless I was holding this up. I had previous scarring from Nobel there too... EVERYTHING above and below those green lines are shaved to grade 1. Thanks BairHairUK, did you do that manage to do that yourself even though the strip line isn't kind of in a horizontal line? The pic you have posted, how many days post op is that? - It looks very effective Do you have any additional pics?

  11. Hello all, I'm now 11 days post op; the staples came out yesterday and the recipient area has recovered brilliantly - no pain whatsover anywhere The hair was buzzed down to a grade 4 (12mm) all over 3 weeks ago, 1 week before the op. I have two weeks, as of yesterday, until I return to work and the dilema now is what to do; I feel I have substantial shockloss below the donor on both sides; the original intention was to shave back down to grade 4, now the staples are out, and use a concealer where necessary. The hair is currently about an inch long but as you can see from the pics does not cover the donor strip. Would welcome opinions on peoples thoughts, regarding whether to shave or to keep, also bearing in mind the 'friar tuck - monk look' and people thoughts on any products other than Couvre to use for concealing.
  12. Hi all, anyone recommend some good hair clippers they have used (bought) and which ones to avoid. My staples are out tomorrow and going to buzz down to a grade 2 thanks in advance
  13. QUOTE(hairless @ Mar 28 2008, 03:44 PM) 27540[/snapback] looks like nice work, any pre op pics Thanks - these pics (attached) were taken about a month or so ago, hair is mainly wet and was longer, 2 to 3 inches - they're 22 months post Seager HT
  14. 2557 into Crown and Back third 24th March 2008 with Dr Feller Hello all, I previously had 3989 grafts in the front third to a half in March 2006 with the late Dr Seager. My second procedure was on Bank Holiday Monday (24th March), my original wish was to add more to the front half and visit the crown and go for more than 3000 grafts. Dr Feller advised not to go back into the front half as there's a risk that what I had could regress; I respected his decision and took his view on putting 2500 in the crown which was completely gone bar some Propecia 'fuzz' - I guess I was chasing perfection or beng greedy. I had my hair buzzed down to grade 4 (12mm) 9 days before the op - the pics are from today 4 days out. Al the staff including the Dr Feller were absolutely brilliant, a completely different procedure to what I had 2 years ago where Dr Seager literally knocked you out for around 2 hours while he took the strip. This 'approach' made you feel like sh*t for at least two days. Dr Feller was very pleased with the results from the Seager transplant as he too had one many years ago with the same results - but hey times have moved on and I can't compliment Dr Feller and his staff enough in regards to attention to detail, professionalism and certainly being the leader in his field. Had very little swelling this time as it's concentrated on the back, strange because you dont see it but certainly feel like Friar Tuck at the moment. I have had no pain, other than sleeping on the staples which is only minor. Coming back from New York the next day was a good idea, last time I came back from Canada to days later and had a lot of swelling. Im looking forward to having the staples out and getting the hair buzzed down again, there's an amount of shock loss and the scar on the right hand side is from the Seager surgey, which Feller felt was quite low. I'm very lucky with my donor and he say's there still plenty left and could do the same size procedure again in the future Would welcome peoples views Many thanks
  15. have registered on PB sites and logged in a number of times but cant see any pics (some problem wit the site?) can you please post the pics on here?
