I wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with my decision to move forward with the procedure. It has been three weeks since I came in, and I am doing great. Not a soul has noticed anything – not even my brother in law who has had 5 or 6 separate hair transplant procedures himself.
As you recall, after the procedure we went down to San Diego for a week, which was the perfect time to be out of the limelight and to wear a hat for a few days. I did tell my son in San Digeo what I had done, and he thought it was a great idea. He’s the only one who knows, besides my wife. I wanted to let you know that the “Medical Post-op Instructions” sheet is a great thing. I followed it to the letter, except that I didn’t have to use any pain pills, because I didn’t have a bit of pain. Just as predicted, the mild swelling occurred on Day 4, and it only lasted two days. We stopped in at the office on our way back to Salt Lake for a follow-up visit with Dr. Phipps. She was very kind and gracious and took time to answer my questions and assure me that all was well. I was just a bit concerned about the scabs along the front hairline so she scrubbed them right off and sent me on my was with a smile on my faced.
Anyway, would you please give my thanks to Dr. Phipps and everyone in the office. I felt like I was in very good hands. Brooke was especially helpful when I stopped in the day after my surgery. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to give you a hello either of the times I stopped in. I wanted to thank you for your gentle encouragement to go forward. I’m now being a patient patient, and anticipating a positive result as these little babies settle in and decide when they want to make their presence known. See you in about 5 months.
