I agree with you. It was an extremely educational thread. I had no idea that necrosis was a possibility in the recipient area like what happened to Marco. I guess "defamatory" can be somewhat subjective to the site police.

I was made aware of the thread and wonder why it was removed. Maybe the forum moderator can explain. Although I do not know (I can only guess) who the author of the original link is, I do not find it offensive and as it seems now, to have been and therefore is, in the public domain both here and elsewhere, I will re-post the link and do not have a problem with the discussion by others (but not myself) and would therefore expect the original thread to be re-enstated or the freedom of discussion in this thread to take place with repost of the comments. I have no problem with the clinic making comments should they wish.

Marco,
im so glad to hear from you. Somehow i feel i can understand your current situation and i say it all from my heart.

i find the approach of forum admin disturbing and alarming at the same time.I feel the least we can do is to acknowledge this thing than trying to bury it.
If necrosis is the possible risk i think it is only ethical to let this thread survive,and it is for the benefit for all the patients going to all the clinics not there not just dr. Rahal.

another issue is that none from the clinic has come forward which in my opinion is unethical.

Marco speaking as a repair patient I can imagine exactly how you feel and only wish you the best in finding a solution which certainly is not easy. Unfortunately this seems to be a very secretive business which many would like to keep secretive regardless of those that try to shine some light on it. Eventually those that seem to be manipulating the informative much to the detriment of prospective patients of who believe they are reading honest, unbiased and reliable information will be found to be just as guilty in the resulting damages patients are experiencing through their collusion with those actually causing the damage. I believe this will all happen in time.

I have been posting for well over 14 years because I feel the need to help others avoid the mistakes I have made and want to help others make better decisions and avoid being deceived. I would be happy to speak to anyone at anytime in person or on the phone. There are some out there that wish I would go away, but I don't have any plans on going anywhere. I believe the small amount of effort I make can make a big difference in someone else's life and it's well worth my time.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

And I will also say I apologize to you Topcat. I took a few jabs at your situation and it was not in good judgment. I don't agree with some of your views but I understand where you come from. The fact is all of us are a part of a brotherhood in which only we can understand. I don't feel emotion towards much these days but I want to cry over Marco's situation. Yours too, topcat. To try so hard to "fix" this just to be screwed up by the people we are paying to "fix" things is just... not right. Then again, non of this is quite right. It might take a fellow brother going through this same garbage to have the passion in which to find a cure.

Shame on the admins here and elsewhere who cover their own asses and hide the truth from people just to make a few bucks off ads or whatever the case might be.

Sure, here is some of what was published in the original thread which is still live by cached search. I am assuming that hairsite will have no problem with this as I can only guess he thought that I would want it removed but that is not the case even though I had not encouraged it, I am a great believer in truth and discussion.

I assume the Dr. was Rahal as the post said the procedure was done in Ottawa.

Has anyone heard from any of his reps or from Rahal personally about this result. Does not seem typical of his work.

I am very sad for marco and disappointed in the Dr. for allowing it to get to this point.

Topcat you appear to be a very bitter, angry man. There is a slight amount of wisdom in your post but most of your posts are about the same thing. You always bring up "young guys" getting HT as if Marco was 1) a young guy 2) he didnt know what he was getting himself into.

I hope that situation is rectified by the Dr., but I doubt it. I am not sure what you're attempting to grasp at with these posts Topcat. Because your head is screwed up no one else should get surgery if their situation is correct?

topcat,
eventhough you advocste small sessions,i dont think marco's decision to go for mega session can be put to any blame. i dont think Marco did anything overtly wrong so as to end up with result like this.Even if it was an uninformed young chap rushing into surgery and getting where he is right now,i would not be blaming the patient because in this case its necrosis that i believe should have been promptly recognised and treated by the clinic.Or the very least i would expect would be an acknowledgement and refund on the part of the clinic.

Agreed.

Back on topic

Legal damages from this result may or may not be forthcoming, I don't think financial compensation is marco's first concern right now, I re-read his original (now locked) post and learned a few things:

1) He is a successful CEO and scientist.
2) He researched this surgery like a scientist would, and I'm not sure I've ever seen such thorough research before. Have a look at his journal for an example.

While it seems to be too much surgery too soon, marco himself wanted this surgery completed in as little time as possible (he stated as much) and I don't know if this approach that marco took was itself unconventional, but he clearly had some control over it, and this approach could be something that Dr. Rahal does not usually follow. So the question of liability for this outcome could be subject to much finger pointing at present, I'm not sure. It also sounds as if the aftercare was neglected, which certainly reflects poorly on this clinic.

They turn or can turn a blindeye because they dont have to fear consequences. Just take a look here.

people like topcat or cal are playing white knights for them. Topcat doesnt care about marco as a person, all he cares is "Ohhh now i can repeat my same old story about small sessions again and i get attention"

And when people finally call him out on this he acts like a moron.

Another point is, WHY is marcos thread locked here in this "consumer information" forum?

Just for the record, marco now has 4 instead of one problem

1) Necrose tissue
2) depleted donor
3) scar tissue from FUT
4) possible baldness going further

And now tell me my dear fellas HOW if not with Gho could he adress all those problems? Hmmm any ideas? And dont come with pro Bono topcat work.

Necrotic tissue needs extra care taking now, in terms of grafts. Is this possible with traditional transplants? NO NEVER POSSIBLE. With Body hair? NOPE its already hard to get body hair to grow on normal balding zones, how hard is it to get it grow on very extensive scar tissue

Depleted donor. What can he do? He is forced to at least EXPAND his donor. How is this manageable? Three letters.

Scar tissue from FUT. Well thats a secondary problem right now. But it remains

Possible baldness going further. Only manageable with expanded donor

But i guess topcat will now repeat

"Have you had your Gho thingy? Have you ever had a transplant? Gho is unproven"

I can answer that Ghos HST is explicitely and foremost for burn victims. For us as a cosmetical procedure its secondary.

I wonder why everyone is so silent right now and nobody from the old pranksters is playing the " You are Stevie Dee" card.

I guess the necrosis case with forum lockdown and the deleted Armani threads have make even the dumbest shills here uncomfortable. It must be very taugh that the all side hated Gho seems to be the only honest surgeon around these days.

posted by cal, 01.01.2013, 09:58
(Hairsite, please kick the Gho shills off this this thread.)



This is shocking. I had a pretty bad feeling when Marco showed the pics that looked like necrotic skin but I didn't think it would be this bad when it all finished healing up.



My first offhand thought would be to investigate what might be done for a burn victim with scalp scarring. It's not the same situation but it seems more applicable than the field of HT work at this point.

Perhaps some type of skin grafting could eventually be done. It wouldn't be hair but it would be something. I don't know what the options are for this right now but that kind of medicine has been steadily advancing these last couple of decades.



If the doc doesn't try to help then he is really sc_um. Bad results are one thing, but cutting off contact as soon as it happens is something else. He oughtta be paying out of pocket to do anything that can be done for Marco. This wasn't just a "bad growth", it was real disfigurement.

If the doc knew the skin was going necrotic, and kept telling the patient that it was fine . . . I smell some possible legal leverage for Marco there. He probably won't be able to get the doc for the original problem, but maybe he could get the doc for worsening the problem by willfully deceiving him about the fact that it needed immediate treatment.



This is really sad. It's just awful.

This kind of thing happening nowadays makes me sick. I remember Marco who was

so excited to have the Transplant. I am disgusted to such a degree that I do

not know what to say except do not believe what you read on any site. So much

B.S. and outright lying in this industry that I feel it will never be

corrected. Meet people in person and never expect too much. I can only hope

he can be helped. I feel lucky that I was able to be helped but really

sometimes do not even want to contribute to these sites anymore because they

are not for the consumer but for the sponsors and Doctors. Truly sickening in

every way. Good Luck Marco, I feel for you. IMO See Dr. Woods as I can

testify he did help me very much. While I still would love to have my

natural 16 year old head of hair back it is not on my mind 24/7 as it used

to be. I wish you the Best. Just keep in mind you are not alone and there

are no miracles.

Hi Marco, I have not posted on this site in a VERY long time. I stopped due to the un-moderated name calling, and unwarranted behavior of several posters. I had my repair at SMG almost the same time as your surgery, I cannot tell you how horrible I feel for you, I am almost to the point of tears when I read this. I pray to God that your doctor steps up to the plate and addresses this issue very soon. I agree with many posters, having a poor result due to circumstances beyond the clinc's control is one thing, this however is a total outrage. My words probably mean nothing, but I know I and many others care and have deep concern over your situation. I hope with all my heart you can get some help to correct this.

where is the marco thread gone?

Can the hairsite admins/mods explain why this thread was locked? marco was a respected poster on the forum whose story interested a lot of members. In addition, as heart-wrenching a story it is, there's a lot prospective patients and surgeons could learn from a case like this. For example, how was an extreme side-effect like necrosis allowed to develop and what can be done in the future to prevent something like this from occurring?

I think it's very troubling that the surgeon hasn't reached out to the patient or commented on this horror-story. It's just as disturbing that the admins/mods decided to delete this information without allowing a resolution to this case.

@ JJJ Jr. S

where is the marco thread gone?

I was reading through marco's original thread and couldn't help but notice this post.

Doesn't look like HairSite was too interested in the end...

Most troubling thing about that thread was marco was told by Dr. Rahal that it was a blood scab and not to worry about it. Are you kidding me?

@ HelloWorld

where is the marco thread gone?

I think many of these doctors just don't recognize necrosis when they see it, they don't want to believe that their surgery could cause such a condition. And if they did recognize it immediately, what could they do to lessen its impact? I really don't know. I do know that marco is a stand up guy and that someone really cannot research and prepare better for a HT than this guy did.

Marco, if you are reading this, it would be nice to hear, or see, an update on your present condition. Please know that we are all pulling for you and that you are not alone, we only wish we could do something to help.

Recap from previous post that was lost, my reply to Hairlove below:

"I have no problem reinstating the thread if Marco can confirm that those were indeed his pictures. We do not wish unnecessary speculation brewing in the forum, that's all."


Subsequent to my post above, Marco has confirmed that those were indeed his pictures. The thread in question is now reinstated.

Some posts in the forum were missing due to a forum glitch, the problem is now corrected. Please refer to the attached file for anything missing in this thread.

Agree.

This really sucks. Marco did everything right and smart. He didn't deserve this. I found out two days ago and I haven't gone 30 minutes without thinking about it since then. I just wish there was something we could do.

I have been approached by Hussain Rahal to ensure there is consent for him to address this or other related threads. Although I have given this already in the thread, I confirm this to Hairsite in this post of cause on the basis that I can do the same. I cetainly hope and expect for this to happen.

Once identified dr."s prescribe nitroglycerin cream to get the blood flow going again. Also some tell the patient to start taking aspiring

Thanks for the update Marco. I am not aware of that, but in any case whatever consent that is required will be strictly between you and Dr. Rahal. You and Dr. Rahal are most certainly welcome to use this platform to address your case. I hope other doctors may offer their insights too and help find a solution for you.

To fellow members in the forum: please be respectful of the discussion here as well as in other threads and DO NOT turn this into a bickering marathon for everyone. Read what Dr. Rahal and Marco have to say and form your own opinion. The goal is to gain more insights into the situation and hopefully invite other doctors who can help find a solution for Marco. Save your judgment and attack posts for later. Off topic or inappropriate posts will be removed.

Thank you.
