2 years after FUE with good results

Now you are losing hair. You must recognize that genetic hair loss is a progressive process and men are moving targets with regard to hair replacement and hair loss.

Hair loss after a hair transplant

Hair loss is a life long process.  It happens in stages.  You often have a sudden thinning like falling off a cliff.  That's normal.  The small hairs probably represent progressive miniaturization and you will need to consider more grafting to keep up with the loss.  Just remember that no one has enough hair to get full coverage in the front and crown.  Body hair can help to level the playing field, but body hair does not work in all individuals and when it does, the appearance is often unsettling to individuals.

Post transplant hair loss

Great question.  The best way to figure out exactly what is going on is to be seen by a hair care expert.  They may need to look at your scalp under magnification and, while unlikely, even take a biopsy if there is any sign of unusual hair loss or scalp changes.  There are certainly many reasons why this could be going on, even further progression of the already standing male pattern hair loss which you had before.  Best of luck.

Losing hair again post transplant

There are quite a few reasons why people lose hair many years post transplant. Be sure to see your surgeon first. Blood tests and possibly a biopsy could be in order.
