    Your hair looks wonderful. It is very encouraging. I had my first PRP with Dr. Rappaport in NJ. I have a followup in one month. I was also given a monistat.
    Will keep you all posted.

    @VinDieselsWifey your story has been SO INSPIRATIONAL to me!! I'm am going to God-willing get the surgery done. I'm going to try and set up a consultation with Dr. Cooley since I will be going to Charlotte from time to time.

    @VinDieselsWifey - Praise and Thank God. Your progress is outstanding. When do you go back to see Dr. Cooley or are you sending him pics, video, etc.? 18 months is the normal follow-up and based on your progression rate, you may have 2-5 more inches.

    I currently worked for the VA. I am sorry to hear about your hair loss. I recall a friend of mine who was in the Army and she was also stationed in Korea. I remember her telling me she was having problems with hair loss and skin issues after being stationed there. If you haven't considered already, I would highly suggest you file a claim for service connection for hair loss with the Veterans Benefits Administration.

    Hello,
    I wanted to say thank you for sharing your story. I’m reading through this forum because I genetically have weak temples and I’m sure I’ll be looking into some options in the near future. I’m so happy for your progress!!!!

    @VinDieselsWifey
    Thank you so much for this thread. Praise The Lord! This has encouraged me so much! Not just about the hair transplant, but everything! You are truly a soldier! I felt really down about my hair. I have CCCA. Thank you again!

    Oh my goodness @VinDieselsWifey - your progress, hair and journey is AWESOME!! What a beautiful living testimony that our hair can be restored to its previous (if not better) glory! Dr. Cooley will be elated. You have your 18 month check-up coming up soon, right? Thank you again for sharing. I'm sure your journey and progress is an inspiration to many!

    BTW - Happy New Year!

    Thanks!
    When I saw Dr. Cooley last year for my one year check up he said I didn’t need to see him again unless something comes up. He said I’m good.
