I had my fourth FUT around 11 months ago and I’ve seen zero improvement. Shock loss kicked in 3 months after the surgery and hasn’t stopped ever since. All kinds of hair (native/transplanted/vellus) are shedding. My body can’t tolerate finasteride so I bought a laser helmet which I’ve been using for 3 and a half months now. The scalp feels stiff. Will take up ketoconazole shampoo and vitamin d supplements soon. I keep cutting them shorter to get rid of the sick-ish ends with that weird wiry/coarse texture but it’s only getting worse. Visited my surgeon recently and he told me “it’s fine, you’re not bald” and dismissed me. He didn’t even examine my scalp. They rarely admit something went wrong in my experience. I am at a loss and feeling really depressed. Any help would be appreciated.
You should have, by now, developed a great relationship with your doctor after 4 hair transplant surgeries. He/she should not dismiss you. You should have developed a Personalized Master Plan for your hair loss with your surgeon when you started the hair transplants. What it happening to you now should have been anticipated as a worst case situation. Did you create a Personalized Master Plan with your surgeon? I would be happy to take a telephone consultation with you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sounds like you need help and advice.
