Hi everyone, this is my first post. I guess I should have been happy that I made it to 50 with most of my hair. But by the time I got to 53, I noticed that my hair began to thin. And it continued for months after that. In the next two years, I lost most of my hair on my scalp. I used Saw Palmetto for the next say 3 years, but it didn't seem to help at all. After looking up other possible solutions, I finally settled on Pumpkin Seed oil, Zinc and Beta Sisosterol. I don't know which one did the trick or if it was a combination of all 3 but it appeared to stabilize my hair loss, though it didn't regrow the hair I had already lost.

I thought about a hair transplant (I definately didn't want to go the toupee route) but didn't think I could afford it. But I couldn't stand looking at my loss in the mirror and so I began to do a lot of research. It seemed that most of the doctors I looked up had something, some issue that bothered me and I really about gave up. So I've lived with baseball caps for the last 6 years.

As a last hope, I looked up hair doctors in my region (Oregon) and found Dr. Stephen Gable in Portland, Or. I looked him up, couldn't find anyone who had anything bad to say about him, unlike some of the other doctors I researched and decided to give it a go. I've been so sick of wearing a hat.

It's now been 5 days since my transplant. And I have to say that I've been very happy that I finally went in. Of course, everything is new, I'm still in the healing phase, but I'm quite happy with the results so far. Dr. Gable is a great guy, super nice, and he worked with me when money was an issue. I'm not rich by any means, but he still gave me a top notch transplant, all the while keeping things light with his quirky sense of humor. His staff too, I have to say, were great. They never once made me feel uncomfortable or did anything other than give me their very best.

For what it's worth to any who find themselves in my position. You won't go wrong with Dr. Gable.

A 'Government Study' is not necessarily proof - "Garbage In, Garbage Out".

Have not had an HT, turned down by 3 clinics, sadly they were right, my donor area has miniaturised.
Now here to look for any advances and give newbies another opinion.

The guy in the centre of my icon doing the inspection of scars is the ideal potential HT candidate:- Doubting Thomas
