Strenuous exercise is generally fine to do two weeks after your surgery. Normal supplements would be fine at this time too, but steroids wait at least a month since they can affect hair growth and actually cause hair loss.

It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.

It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.   There is no reason why you can't take supplements and exercise especially after 4 months.  If you are concerned, ask your doctor.

Taking steroids after a hair transplant

taking steroids after a hair transplant is bad news because steroids causes hair loss and will do just the opposite of why you did a hair transplant. A good protein diet is not a problem

Once you are healed which may take about two weeks after hair transplant, you can return to your normal routine. For weight lifting, we suggest to wait three weeks.

Hello. You can go back to your routine once your surgery area has healed. This takes between one to two weeks. Meanwhile take care of your transplanted hair and donor area.Best of lucks!
