10-20-2011, 09:01 AM
hi im darryl from uk, had 1860 odd grafts on september 20th, im nearing 31 and only wanted temple areas operated on, now 3 and a half weeks post op hair has started shedding, just wondered how long it sheds for before it starts to grow? altho i hear its 2 to 6 months, it looked awesome when it was grade 2 all over as thats how i wear my hair,but now its grade 5 all over the temple areas look thin as hell so i can only assume its shedding altho i havnt seen much loose hairs falling out only some as im washing everyday,maybe im shitting myself too much but would like some feedback on shedding cheers,

GHrowth generally starts up at month 3-4 on average.

If no hair grows then you obviously need to speak tot he clinic who did the surgery and get their opinion as to why. Its very very rare but however all depends on the calibre of the clinic used.
You can shave your head after 3 weeks as everything is safe.
