My hair transplant was nearly a year ago. Unfortunately I suffered shock loss. The surgeon said the hair would grow. It still hasn’t. At this point is my hair lost or is there any chance that it will grow?
If there is still shock loss at a year afterward, there certainly is a reduced chance that the hair will now grow back. Most shock loss returns within 6 to 12 months and I think at this point you should go see the surgeon and explain the situation to him and maybe consider getting additional transplants if the scalp is healthy at this point.
