My impressions of Gho are the same as last time, what I learnt this time, was for me 700 grafts takes a long time, I started at roughly 10.45 with the extractions and finished at about 1pm. Started the recipient area after lunch at 2pm and finished at approx 6pm.
I was bleeding slightly more than normal so they said in my recipient area, which made the task much more labour intensive, possibly due to the scarring alopecia, who knows. Maybe shouldn't have had a few drinks on Saturday night! Next time I'll give myself 7 days of no drink before my next procedure.
One of his technicians told me they had surpassed their record by doing 2450 hst in one day recently. This kind of quantity would be theoretically impossible for me it seems, now I know what they mean when they say good donor area and no scarring etc helps with doing larger procedures more speedily.
I also asked him how many more procedures I'd need to get. He advised to go for a light coverage first, 'natural look' he said! (I can't be too fussy in my situation right now, I'd take light coverage.) Anyway he continued to say that I'd need 2 or 3 more procedures. I also asked again if I could do my next procedure on 2 consecutive days, he basically said yes, but I don't think he'd want to do more than say 1500 over 2 days because of my situation.
I also noticed there was another patient having a procedure at the same time as me, it seems in London they do two procedures on a monday and two on a tuesday now. I'm dam sure I was the only patient there on my first procedure.
I have another date pencilled in, but I need to confirm it with him.
