Levrais's - Profile page Day-of-procedure

Posted :11/15/2010

I researched HTs for about a year prior to having mine.  I found this site particularly helpful.  In fact, I had no idea what was actually invloved until I found this site. 
These pics were taken by the doctor just before and just after the procedure.  The procedure started at 7:30 am and lasted until about 6:15 pm with a lunch break.  The original plan was for 1,000 to 1,200 grafts but we ended up with 1498.  It was a long day but the valium they gave me made it manageable.  There wasnt much pain during the procedure.  I left for home 2 days after the procedure.  If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed in Brussels a few more days to recover before traveling.
