3,300 grafts from strip procedure (6/1/2010)
My Hair Loss Story
I set my apt with Dr Alan Feller in NY, about 3 months ago and today
was my day! It was a pretty surreal moment sitting in the parking lot
waiting for 745am to arrive. I actually got a little teary thinking
about what this means to me. Started loosing my hair at about 20 yrs
old, and it has definitely held me back at different points in my life.
I decided to do something about it, and I am SO glad I did. Not only
did I set my appointment 3 months ago, but I also started a workout
regiment to coinside with it, and have had really good success on that
front well (lost about 30lbs! i did p90x and have been jogging since
I have to say that everyone that works at Dr
Feller's office was so incredibly nice! They managed to get about 3,300
grafts, which I was totally excited about. I diligently did my scalp
exercies these past few months, but honestly was not sure how much they
would be able to take from my donar area. Dr Feller set a goal of 3,000
and he came through and then some!
The worst part of the entire
day was the waiting! And the initial shots they give you to numb the
donor, and recipient areas. but the sitting there in the chair all day
was pretty brutal. Totally worth it! But still.. I am very glad its
over with! lol.
