In the end to get what I want, I expect to be around 4500-5000 grafts. I expect he'll do another 2000 to give me the result at the front that I want. I also have hair loss in my crown area which will most likely be around 1000.Looks legit man, how old are you? You're front is further gone then mine but my crown has started as well. I want to go through the same procedure in the next 1-2 years. Based on the fact that you wrote 2-3 procedures, how many graphs will you end up with?
On finasteride? Maintaining?
Edit** I see you're 36 and did maintain on finasteride. Bit older then me (I'm almost 28) and I'm not really maintaining on finasteride, so I guess we have our differences! Wonder if I'd be a poor candidate.
I ahve been taking procia 0.5mg since late 2014. I have been using rogaine since 2012. Heres a thread I made a couple years ago with an update on my propecia use and such.
I stopped taking propecia about 3 weeks ago. Im now on a topical finasteride/ minoxidil blend. The amount of finasteride in the topical is about 8x more than what was in my propecia. The topical, according to multiple studies, has had ZERO side effects on mens prostates and pretty much zero side effects at all. Where as we all know that the pill has dozens of side effects. I only suffered from one side effect from propecia, a weaker stream when peeing which was obviously a sign of something that could get WAY worse over time. Hence why getting off that pill was something I was ready and willing to do. I couldnt be happier that Dr.Cole made me aware of that topical.
I wouldnt personally use your reaction to finasteride as a way to base how youll react to a transplant. You know, kinda like comparing a bandaid over a wound to stitches over that same wound.
