My Hair Loss Story
I started to lose hair when I was 18. My hair loss didn't follow any pattern. It was gradual thinning of hairline over years. I had first transplant in India in Dec 2006. It was a strip surgery and my scar extended beyond my ear which later I realized that was not normal. Also my scar is thick as compared to scars on patients who had their transplants in the US.
The results were good after my surgery. I used FINAX (Indian Propecia) for almost 18 monthis after my surgery.
The biggest mistake I did was to stop FINAX and Mintop(Indian version of Rogaine) at the same time. I was worried about the sexual side effects of propecia. I experienced some side effects and my friends scared me to death :) This was the reason for my hair loss once again. Within 6 months of stopping FINAX my hair loss was accelerated and people started to notice and tell that I was losing hair.
I consulted Dr.Dorin in NYC office and I got my second procedure done 10 days ago. Also, I started to take FINAX again.
I am hoping to see some hair back on my scalp :) It is very depressing to see thick hair line reduce within months. Whenever I see my hair, I regret my decision of stopping FINAX.
