Had surgery over a month ago and my hair is shedding/thinning like crazy! Could it be related?
Shedding after a surgery in a young man is almost always the result of shock loss. I always use finasteride to prevent this in men who are balding, and who are under my care. It is particularly important for men who are also under 30 if they have a surgery, because the incidence of shock loss is high. The hair lost from this rarely returns, and is often a result of the stress from the surgery. We see this very frequently after a hair transplant in a man in his 20s.
