    Nevermindd,

    So sorry to hear about the transplant not working. I lurk on this site all the time now, hoping for a miracle solution to hair loss. The last time I went to my dermatologist she mentioned transplant as a possible option for me. I have always had that in the back of my mind...knowing that the outcome is so unclear. Of course I would go through pain and money if I knew it would really work. You are extremely brave to have tried that path.

    You are not alone...that's what I keep telling myself (as I look at EVERYONE's hair who I come into contact with!) You are not alone.

    I am a little too late for this reply, but I am sure there are thousands of women suffering from hairloss and if there is something that i can contribute to this discussion it would be my persnal experience.
    Even I had a fierce battle with Androgenetic Alopecia for over 10 years and in the end i had to opt for hair transplant. I did go through the phase of shock loss and was as anxious as you seemed in this post. But after a successful hair transplant i have recovered and i currently am really happy the way i look.

    I am late to the conversation too! I had a very successful hair transplant 9 months ago and I hope everyone who commits to the procedure can be patient and know that the right doctor and maintenance with Rogaine, lasers and good nutritional support (I use Juice Plus) can yield fantastic results.

    Is there any update from Nevermind on your transplant? Can you tell me your age, and what type of transplant you did, FUE or FUT? Also, the doctor or location it was done??
    I am considering a transplant, but like you, and especially after hearing your story, I am hesitant due to shock loss, it would be devastating for me to lose more hair; I mentioned this to the doctor and he said even if it happens, the transplanted hairs would more than make up for it. Not certain that an adequate response.
    The doctor did a scalp biopsy to rule out FFA, saying if I had this then the transplant would not work. The biopsy came out negative for that saying it possibly androgenetic alopecia. However, I not totally convinced, in that the symptoms of FFA seem to indicate to me this is what it is, so he suggested another biopsy?
    I am going first for another opinion.
    And trying to stabilise the loss as well.
    I really understand so much how Nevermind feels, it is anguishing for me to see my loss, it makes me feel less feminine, and I am very conscious about this.

    so i see your original post was in 2011, do you have any updates on how the transplant worked for you? I just posted on another site this:
    So in summary I have now been to 3 transplant docs or rather 2 and 1 dermatologist specialising in hairloss, all recommend the transplant. All tell me different things about different options; one recommends finasteride, the other does not, one recommends PRP, another says it won't work; another recommends laser comb, another says it is a waste. One who I have seen twice, said first I needed 2400 units, then in writing said 2000. On second visit he said 2200, but then writing again said 1800. Is that a cause for concern? Everyone who is not a doctor says they think I am crazy since I have a lot of hair otherwise; my hair dresser says also I have a lot and it is just the hairline/temples.......I have started to camouflage it by combing hair differently and sometimes putting just a smidgen of brown shadow in the front center scalp area.......but i am very natural and hate doing these things
    I would like to hear from those who have and have not had it done, I see tons of photos on the doctor websites, and on the internet, are they all true? What about the ones that didn't work? The doctor said that 100% of men & women all experience shock loss, and I can cover the loss area (until it grows in) with toppik which I am not keen on using those cover sprays........

    Can you tell me how were your results? I am seriously contemplating a transplant. I am obsessed about my hair now, it has gotten so thin on top and it is falling out more than ever now.........I am just terrified of shock loss and that it could be worse after the transplant or not work. I see photos on the doctor's websites, my husbands thinks they are photo-shopped, but I don't think so. Of course those are the successful ones but they look really good. I know I will need 6 months or so of misery before it starts growing in (if I am lucky to be successful). I would really appreciate hearing from someone, I have seen 3 doctors and they, as well as my stylist, feel I would benefit from it.........
