Hair loss

Hair loss is something you think of old people having to deal with not something you want to have to think about when your 26 years old and yet here i am looking on the Internet for help with my problem of hair loss.
Its really getting me down, all my life i have had lovely thick hair and i have always been very proud of it, that and my long eye lashes were always my best fetchers and now its all gone to pop.
I have also been told to cut down on what I'm eating as my TX team don't want me to start having other problems from being fat! i have never been told to cut back on food but always been told to eat and eat and eat till i cant fit any more in and then eat some more!!!!
i think this blog is more of a down one today and not much else.

My lungs are doing really well at the mo and i haven't had to stay over night in hospital for a month, and i don't have to go back to TX clinic for 6 weeks! it feels like things with my blood are starting to sort them self's out and i can start to relax a bit and start to plan stuff and enjoy my self.
My LF is slowly starting to go up its now at 1.69 today and last week at TX clinic it was at 64% and I'm really working on it for it to be at 70% or more by next clinic.

Connor being at school now is giving me lots of time to sort the house out and get it how i want it, for the last few year i haven't been Abel to do anything but let Matt sort it all out but now i can i have so many plans and ideas that I'm slowly putting in to play with the 1st thing being sorting Roxy out, she has been eating everything lately from Connors toys to my pills and doors and carpet! she started to get out the hallway when we went out so she was put in her cage so she was in one place but she manged to brake out of that too, so i got my brother to fit some big locks to the doors of the kitchin and so far so good that has kept her in there when we go out.
Next i want to put new doors in all the rooms and then sort out the garden, me and Matt was raking up all the dead leafs today and took them down the dump site so the garden looks better already.

Me and Connor did some baking today and made mince pies with edible glitter on them! there were lovely and i had one with a cup of tea while they were still warm and it was (if i do say so my self) the best one i had ever had before lol
Next up is making cup cakes for my mums birthday next week, i cant wait to see how they turn out, my friend Sammie gave me a recipe for cup cakes and the butter icing topping and i have more glitter and sugar flowers to go on top of them.
I'm really getting in to this housewife job now and love being able to do everything, i even like doing the hovering and ironing!!!
So all in all everything is going well apart from my hair loss.....

Thinning hair is very common as a result of the medications you take post transplant, I struggled with it too. Your hair will get thicker in time, mine isn't as thick as it used to be & probably never will be (I'm 5 years post transplant), but it's not as thin as it initially was. I don't really have any useful advice but you're not alone & it will improve.
