with Dr Feller:
Jumpinghair - -
First of all let me start
by saying Dr Feller and his crew are very friendly and I felt very welcome.
I was scheduled in at 9:30 as there was minor operation before mine;
work got started on me at about 11:30. Dr Feller drew in my new hairline, I
wasn't too happy with the one side which he then adjusted I was pleased with it
and anxious to get going.
I then moved onto my stomach in preparation for
the FUE punch. A had a few injections of anaesthetic into my donor area, which
hurt more on the left then right for some reason. I was then ready for my hair
to be ˜punched'. I asked Dr Feller what size the punch was and he uses .8 and .9
mm feller punch) He said I was an ideal FUE Candidate, music to my ears!
After about 10 mins though disaster struck I started to bleed, not bleed
but pour blood, I mean Niagara Falls bleed. Dr Feller started questioning me if
had done any drinking previous to Op, which I had done. Oh shit I thought, I've
cocked this up! ... I had a couple beers 2 days back and it was evident, Dr
Feller was not happy. My heart at this point was beating so hard I thought it
was going to explode. I started to pray to the big man. After apologizing for
being such an idiot and praying to the man above, Dr Feller managed to get the
bleeding under control. Thank the heavens! Whatever you do avoid alcohol like
the plague before your op! Dr feller explained how it slowed him down a great
deal I think he said he was on 380 where if I wasn't bleeding so much he could
have been close to 800 he might of exaggerated? .
An hour and half maybe
2 had passed and the techs came in and extracted the graphts and they also
commented on how easily they could get the hairs out they were impressed, in
their worlds "the hairs were literally jumping out" hence my handle. So this was
some good news which made me happy.
So after couple rounds of the above I
then stopped for a break I think it was about 14:30. I had a sandwich and a
cheeky smoke jokingly De Feller offered me a beer to with my sandwich . I then
got back in the chair for a few more graphts to be taken this maybe lasted
another hour. I was then moved to another room where Dr Feller injected me and
made the incisions after that the techs moved in to place the graphs; two techs
placing and 1 doing cleaning with saline solution.
It was getting quite
late now I was falling into and out of sleep regularly. But woke to hear one of
techs saying she was tired. This frightened me a little; I said that she could
sleep when she's done!
Anyways I think I was all done and on my way out
of the office at about 19:00.
I'd like to thank everyone, Dr Feller a
great guy who was patient with me and did some excellent work. His friendly
hardworking crew and Spex who has been a tremendous help through all of this,
answering all my questions and having much patience with me.
