You brave woman! I've had hair loss myself but would not have the guts to shave my head...
FUE works, though. I do find that my female patients use more hair transplants in order to get a more satisfying density, so you might go for a second round of either FUE OR a strip procedure at that time. Just be patient to see your results and take a deep breath - all is not lost! I think it is probably a sign that you had a good surgeon who was willing to tell you some bad news, and in the future you should definitely meet with the doc in advance.
Let us know how you do! I'd be interested in seeing how your story ends. Good luck!
