Greetings doctor. As with most balding individuals I am stressing about saving my hair. I am African-American and I take Propecia currently to prevent future loss in the crown of the head, which is still pretty thick. I had 1100 grafts placed in the front of my head via a hair transplant in late October of 2006. It is now approaching 6 months since the transplant and I am not seeing any hair grow in (fine or otherwise), nor any stubble, shafts or anything. I went through the shock loss and feel the area itching sometimes, but no results. Is this normal? Should I wait for a few more months or should I get a refund since the hair is not growing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Wait out a full 8-10 months before drawing any conclusions. At 6 months, I suspect you will see growth in another month or two.
