  1. Hi guys, I've decided to go for one more HT with Dr Bisanga. The procedure will be FUE as I have a depleted donor supply due to procedures (butcherings) by the N*rton Clinic and the H*spital Gr*up. Anyway, I'm hoping for around 1000 - 1200 FUE taken from the side of the head mainly to implant behind the hairline and in the middle. I already have some hair there, a combination of native and HT hair but its thinned out a little. Anyway, after this procedure that front half should be done and little I have left 1500 grafts or so will have to be left for the crown, when it gets really bad. Will keep you'all posted!!
  2. Mate.....I'm well pleased for you!!! As a fellow UK HT victim, suffering depression, not seeing myself in the mirror for 3 to 4 years for fear of not being able to walk out of the door....I completely and utterly understand where you're coming from. Refreshing to hear that there are good doctors around!! I'm thinking of getting FUE too over the next couple of months. Just need to save enough money for a deposit. Thinking about 1000 grafts in the front third to finish things off. Good to hear from you again man...really good!!
  3. Hey... Sorry guys I've been on here much. Just been checking in now then to find out when the PRP will be available, as I believe I am a good candidate. Ok..results from the second session.....have been pretty awesome actually. The left side that I had done is now so thick that its not see through in any lighting condition. Probel is though that the right side hasn't had a second pass and can be slightly see through depending on the hair style and lighting conditions. Many of you know that I had 3 buthering in the UK before going to Dr Rahal, so my donor supply is somewhat limited. Actually I believe myself to extremely fortunate to have been able to salvage my situation. But because if this I looking into having a smallish 500 - 600 graft FUE procedure done with the hair taken from my the side of my head as its not been touched and is very thick. This completely finish the front third ie v. thick and leave approx 2,500 in the bank for the crown when things get really bad. TOMMY > I struggled with the second more because I had to shave all my hair down and lost quite a lot through shockloss, even HT hair. They all grew back but for around 2 months I was looking so much worse. It was just quite a shock going from having a decent head of hair to quite badly thinning again. But hey all good now. I'll get some pics done this weekend.
  4. PB.....will those people who haven't seen you in say 5 years be able to recognise you, or will they think your a younger and better looking version of PB?!
  5. Flippin awesome result!! Not trying to get too carried away, but I've not seen any results, medication or srugical, come close to this at the 2.5 month mark!! Spex, are things still on schedule for this to be available over here this month?
  6. Hey Spex...my man! I'm running low on the proscar I bought from Dr Rahal when I had my last HT. I remeber you saying you know a doc who can write a prescription for it. How would I go about securing the prescription. Thanks mate. PS....can't wait for the PRP bro.....keep thinking about it nearly everyday!!
  7. Spex mate.....is Dr F any firmer on when he is coming over to the UK to perform this procedure? Thanks
  8. Certainly does my man!! I was planning another procedure probably FUE, but I'd rather wait and try this first. My donor hair is pretty exhausted, so want to try all other options before opting for surgery again. Any idea on when Dr Feller will be making this available in the UK, approximately?!
  9. Spex...count me in brother!! What sort of cost we talking about?
  10. Another question mate..... You say you use gel instead of wax. Is there any particular reason for this? I though HT patients usually stay away from gels as they make the hair look thinner. Thanks, Sagg.
  11. Flippin awesome mate! I have to say this is one of the, if not the, best repair procedure I've seen. You seemed to have improved greatly since the 8 month mark.....would you agree?
  12. Hi mate, I'm good, thanks. 2nd HT is coming in ok....just a bit slow, must be all the scar tissue in my recepient area. I also had shock loss, which has mostly grown back. I'm at month 8, but have a hell of a lot of stubble still coming through. Bad news is that I've recently experienced my twice yearly propecia shed. Its stopped now, but I do have less hair Just waiting game really.....for both my propecia shed hair and HT2 hair. Should be ok by end of Jan / early Feb 09.
  13. Excellent work! And he's only 8 months, so yet to experience a great deal of further improvement.
  14. Mate, Don't worry! This is not the first or the last time you will experience shedding on meds. Once on meds, you will experience something known as synchronised shedding. Its been reported my many people on meds and I have experienced it every year for the last 10 years on meds. Each time the consequence of the shedding is less severe and you do get all of the hair back. I understand its all a bit un-nerving. My brother has just come out of his first month on minoxidil and fin and has experienced a massive shed. However, its beginning to slow down and I was able to support / talk him through it. Generally, if you shed, its a good sign. Old, weaker hair are being shed and replaced by thicker stronger hair.
  15. Thanks Lucky! u'r a legend with u'r own results mate I stayed away from anyone if I was without a hat unless I was at work.. I think the few people that have seen me wondered why I havent worn a hat in the last 5 months!? but never took it off for about 15 years before that! It would be blindingly obvious tho to any of my old work mates that saw me before with the center parting comb over!! I have still used this year as getting used to the change as I am still only on my 10th month post my 2nd HT.. Next year will be a new start for me Geez mate....what a difference!! Without even seeing your face...you look like a different person!! The difference is night and day. The first pic you look like a middle aged train spotter...and in the second you look like a young trendy dude!!
