And so it begins.
Wow, I can’t believe it is finally here. After researching hair transplants for over 6 years I am officially taking the plunge with Dr. Rahal on July 2, 2013. As I quickly approach D-Day I must admit I’m feeling a combination of apprehension, excitement, nervousness, and a plethora of other emotions.
However, let’s go back to the start.
My trip through hairloss hell.
Like many of the fellas in hair transplant land, I started losing my luscious locs at about 19. It was slow and annoying at first, however, it progressively got worse and became more noticeable. That’s when I started searching for “solutions.”
I’ve subjected myself to what can only be called scientific experimentation. I’ve tried laser lights, over-the-counter treatments such as Rogain and, of course, I jumped on the propecia train. Nothing helped my cause unfortunately, and I’m sure I’ve financed more than a few porches.
In early 2012, I finally had enough. It was time for me to do something about my hairloss. I’d wasted far too many hours in front of the mirror, and honestly I’m tired of looking at before and after pictures of my balding compadres. It can drive a person insane – luckily the online community is nothing short of outstanding.
My publishing plans.
Good question! Honestly, I hope to become one of the guys that enjoys his transplant so much that he forgets to maintain his blog 🙂 For the time being I hope to update monthly at a minimum. Stay tuned, the exciting stuff is just around the corner.
