Dying for hair restoration...don't do this after surgery

Post by drwlindsey »

Mr. R WAS a healthy very active guy working out 5 or 6 days a week vigorously.  He had an uneventful hair transplant with us in late October, came back for his scar check at a month, and like most of our patients....we didn't hear from him for a while.  At his 6 month mark, he called and told us he'd DROPPED DEAD on the treadmill while exercising in Februrary.  Fortunately, the gym is beside both my daughter's school and the rescue squad...which rushed him to the hospital after the manager had started CPR.  He had heart surgery...and describes going into the hospital with no hair and being discharged with a crop of hair growing.

We do NOT recommend this to start your transplant growing....

He gives a pretty good story and is back training pretty hard and I expect to have a better video this fall.
