Past a month, you can treat your transplanted hairs the same way you would treat your normal hairs. So unless you are undergoing a medical procedure that could cause you to lose your hair, you don't need to worry about them. A parathyroid scan is fine.

By the 5th day after an FUE procedure you can resume most activities.  Certainly at 2 months there would be no issue with having a parathyroid scan.Our website can answer most questions that come up post surgically  ---  see link.

You should discuss any other medical treatment with your treating physician. Thyroid scans should not be an issue.

You are completely normal at this stage and can do whatever testing your doctor needs to do for your overall health
