I'm sorry for being absent from this blog for a while. Part of it was simply wanting to wait long enough to show a substantial difference and part of it was getting bogged down by an unexpected move. I have to admit, a third component was simply that I just don't think about my transplant every day anymore! Dr. Rahal warned me that might happen, but I was so grateful and so excited that I dismissed it.
My donor area looks flawless, my hairline is coming in beautifully at about 7 months - I would be happy if this is the extent of growth I got. My crown, as anticipated, still has a spot there but I'm not self-conscious of it and it disappears when I brush my hair back. I love my hair, I love how I feel every day. I feel like myself again.
The clinic checks in occasionally and I only have good things to say. Now that I wake up in the morning and see this much hair, remembering the simple things like taking my pill and using Rogaine becomes more difficult but arguably more important - I don't want to lose hair around the transplanted areas. In fact, for the first time in 8 years, I've set an alarm to remind me to use both. Otherwise, I don't even think about it.
Head on - 7 months
Flawless donor area!
