Hello Guest... it is really hard to say how much hair you may lose.  There is a possibility of your hair growing back or that the loss can come to a standstill.  It is also possible it may continue.  Does any of your relatives have this occur to them?  If so, you can see what type of trend in hair loss they experienced.  There are many treatments you and your doctor can explore to try and stop the alopecia and help encourage hair growth again.  I hope your alopecia clears up for you and soon.
