Day 57 and Counting

January 15, 2010
Well, the holidays have zipped by already and it’s been 57 days since my transplant.  As you can see from the pictures, there’s not a lot of new growth yet, but it is coming.  The people close to me who see me everyday have noticed that my hair is getting thicker and I have a good deal of new growth despite it being hard to see on the photos.  The new growth started coming in like beard stubble and now the hairs are about a half inch in length.  I was told it would take 6-9 months to see a difference but it’s only been less than two full months.  I’m really excited.

I’ve enjoyed telling friends that I had the procedure and watch how they pretend that my hair looks great.  They have a good laugh when I finally tell them that the results won’t be noticeable for another few months or so, but thanks for the lame compliments anyway!  Perhaps I should stop saying… “I just had a hair transplant, doesn’t it look great?”

One Buddy said, “Ahh, ummm, well, ahhh, Dave, you’re just as bald as before, can’t you see that?”  I replied, “It’s not like I bought a wig, it takes time to grow in, you boob!”

Anyway, things are going as planned and I am still very happy that I took the plunge to do something about my rapidly balding head.  Stay tuned, I’ll keep you informed.
