My Consultation with Dr. Dickinson

Here’s the video of my pre-op consultation with Dr. Dickinson, prior to my session on 11/17.  Some good info here.

Is That Hair Growing?

December 5, 2009

It’s been 17 days since my procedure and I’ve got new growth already!!  It’s like a beard coming in, only it’s on my head.  This is so cool! I can picture how the new growth will mix with my existing hair.  I can’t wait.

I went out yesterday for the first time since my procedure without a hat.  I had lunch with a buddy who was unaware of my transplant.  He noticed nothing in terms of dots, scabs, holes or any other disfigurement that most people assume would be present.  Imagine that, less than three weeks from my procedure and there are no noticable scars or marks.  But there is a patch of new growth on my hairline and I couldn’t be happier.

The question I get asked the most thus far is would I do it again.  If someone asked you, would you deal with two days of discomfort, not pain, just some soreness and healing in exchange for looking 15 years younger?  The answer is YES! It was kind of nice being fussed over at the Nu/Hart office and at home for a few days.  Although I couldn’t play racquetball for a week, I was able to get back to work in just two days, albeit desk duty.  They didn’t want me lugging camera equipment around until some natural healing took place.  Bottom line…it was a piece of cake.
