    Doke,

    No problem. Be great if you can call into the show to discuss your hair loss journey with us.

    I take 1mg finpecia daily and apply minoxidil 5% foam 1 x at night.

    Best

    DIDI,

    Indeed - i have had multiple surgeries amounting to 10 in total, all relatively small sessions. I have had approx 4500 transplanted.

    I would be a NW6 for sure as started losing my hair at 21 and mirrored my maternal grandfather who lost hair in the exact same pattern as me and he ended up a N6 at 28.

    Best thing i ever did was get on finasteride when i did as it prevented further loss and allowed me to rebuild the entire front - all be it the long way round

    4500 grafts is not a big number for nw6 but i guess you are still on propecia and that keeps your hair up...so it was jotronic who had about 9000 grafts, i always mix you up guys

    your hair and donor look great imo so have you ever thought of dropping propecia for good and then topping up with small HT session as lose your hair?
    since you work for HT company you would get it either for free or big discount and on top of that you'd be drug free, and would be cheapper in long run..

    NO WAY ! I wouldn't dream of stoping finasteride as it is the secret to my success. I have NO issues taking it whatsoever and only wish i had got on it sooner.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Sparky, Good to see you.

    I do not take Proscar - I used to. I used to cut it into 5ths and take 1mg daily.

    However i now take 1mg finpecia and have done for 2/3 years - saves the hassle of cutting up the Proscar tablet.

    Be great if you call into the show on a Sunday live to discuss your hair loss and surgical journey as you have an interesting story to tell

    The next LIVE show is now scheduled for the 20th Jan at 8pm GMT

    Regards
    Spex

    I already told you that I don't want to phone in. You know how I feel about my whole HT experience.
    I don't want my story to be heard by all thanks.


    Back to my original question, where do you get your Fin now?

    My post reads like I'm annoyed, I didn't mean it to come across like that Spex, I just wanted to convey that, while I appreciate the offer, because of my HT history I would prefer not to call into the show.

    I hope you understand.

    Thanks
