9 Months Post-Op 6/16/10 "My New Babies..."Hey everyone!Peter here, checking in at the 9 month mark...!It occurred to me as I first sat down to write this, that 9 months time is exactly the same amount of time required for the growth and maturation of a human baby, and in many ways, having a new and ever-increasing head of hair is a little LIKE having a new baby--something that is ever-present, ever growing, that wasn't there before--something that will be with you the rest of your Life, and something that you are so, SO grateful for!! Sorry for the slightly-strained-metaphor, but I really AM SO THANKFUL, and, I DO LOVE my "New Babies...!" In retrospect, these 9 months in some ways really flew by--that's NOT to say that I wasn't impatient MUCH of the time (just go back and read some of my earlier posts!!)--simply that once you REACH this point--where the hair is actually REALLY starting to come in and look GOOD--you ALMOST forget--not only what it was like to have the pain and uncertainty of the first few months Post-op, but you start to forget what you looked like BEFORE the surgery itself...!As far as actual changes since my last post, I don't really have all THAT much more to report (as my last post was a LATE 8.5 months--only 2 weeks ago...), but I CAN report ever-increasing length and manageability with my new locks--I'm STARTING to be able to "do more" with the hair, and, slowly but surely, the hair SEEMS to be increasing in density, or, at the very least, HEALTH...Also, as I think I reported last entry, I have also returned to the use of 5% monoxidil in ADDITION to my daily proscar--just to give the new hair as HEALTHY a chance and environment as possible to thrive...I am CERTAINLY looking forward to the next 3-4 more months, as even though I am so thrilled with what has already come in, I CONTINUE to pray for continuing gains in density and volume of the new hairs...! I am ashamed to say it, but it is true... I believe I may indeed be one of those many transplant recipients, who, once I've seen how AMAZING the results are (a DIRECT result of going with Hasson and Wong, I believe!), I may evermore suffer from the dreaded "Hair Greed...!" But REGARDLESS, I am THANKFUL EVERY DAY for the continued trend of hair coming IN, instead of "going out!"See you next month!!
