where is the marco thread gone? (Hair Transplant)

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.

That is so very sad and my prayers go out to Marco. I wonder if this could this be a result of ultra dense packing where the skin is not able to heal properly?

but marco is no young chap,he had a sea of knowledge,took his time deciding(over 10 yrs) and is a very informed,mature poster.

I wish the clinic would have recognised the imminent necrosis earlier and done something about it!

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.

lets avoid getting personel here and lets not jump to advicing him to go to particular doctor but focus on his present situation and asking the clinic who did this to show some empathy to his situation and own responsibility.Its only ethical thing to do for 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.

(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.
