    Les' from Bristol who had called in on this UK Ep. 7 is actually 54 years old Admin'(not 56) He is same age as myself !! They had a GREAT conversation on the show and I am now considering Propecia (finasteride) due to Les' experience using Fin' especially since we are the same age.
    Thanks Les!
    Les, dont forget to share with us the name of your doctor.
    As Spencer had said, it sounds like your doctor knows a great deal in dealing with hair loss.
    'BreakingBald' was also a great caller . His positive outlook goes a long way for many here.

    I also enjoyed listening to this show, Les seemed enthusiastic about Fin, was inspiring, but sadly for me, i'm still on the damn fence regarding taking it - i'm 44 now, still have slow loss and a fair bit left, so i may even benefit from taking it - just dont know, always seems like a major gamble with one's health to me..

    Hi Jcm' I understand completely. Im sure you have heard Spencer's point of view on using Fin' ...I have never considered using Fin' because of my age. I didn't start to have severe hair loss until I was in my late 40s. As Les had mentioned about his own hair loss , I too had a high hairline (receding) which began in my late 20s/early30s but I still have a relatively full head of hair. At least, the receding didn't dash my spirits, not until my late 40s.
    I would think that one major factor that may have excelled the hair loss was stress due to a 'Perfect Storm' in my life back then. I weathered the storm but came out of it with advanced hair loss.
    So as I have said Jcm , I had never considered using that drug because of my age, the side effects that i had heard of.
    Les' recent experience in-conjunction with all the data that I had previously learned has made me reconsider Fin'.

    Hi Arista, i hear you dude - it's a tricky call for me - i 'think' i could handle certain sides, such as watery semen, maybe a lessened libido. But were i to get mental sides, and or gyno for instance - that's hard to deal with. Now, i know many men tolerate the drug well, and i may indeed be one of them. What freak's me, is if i'm not, and i quit the drug - and sides remain, what then? Life is screwed, so im constantly battling with the need for hair, or the benefit of Fin and good gains, or shitty sides and ruined quality of life, all these thoughts, maybe with my fear's i'm best of laving it, just dont know!.
