    Trust me, it is going to shed out soon so it won't really matter much.

    I could not go to work like that even if I knew it was going to shed in 2 days time. I would shave it real short. Just my thoughts.

    Up to him.

    In hindsight I would of shaved it short like you said, but pretty much everyone has seen me now, and I want to grow my natural hair back asap... alot of people must think wow you paid all that money for that, but they don't understand the process of growth etc.

    Almost 5 weeks after op there's still a few hairs that haven't fallen out... not sure if there growing or not... and scalp is still a bit pink.

    I've been getting tingling sensations near to where the transplant was done, I guess i'm due for some shock loss... although I haven't noticed an increase in hair loss as of yet.

    I've got a few bumps, but i understand that's normal...

    So do you think the transplanted hairs will shed or are they going to continue growing?

    Realistically am I looking at mid April before seeing any new growth?

    I'm not sure if you know what shock loss is. Shock loss does not always happen and I am pretty sure that if it were going to happen it would have happened by now. Since your grafts were planted in areas void of hair, you are not likely to have shock loss anyways.

    Very true. Shockloss for the most part is temporary loss of native exisitng hair that was within or near the recipient area. Shockloss can also occur in the donor region although very rare. Can some shockloss be permanent? Sure it can, but ususally when that existing hair is already debilitated and on it's way out.

    At 5 weeks post-op, I hope the redness dissipates. If not, contact your surgeon for assistance. Everyone heals differently and the redness that lingers can vary between patients.

    Should i be concerned that some of the hairs implanted, haven't fallen out or really grown that much (if at all) compared to my usual hair...

    Hey Jimbob,

    please read the following passage which Dr.Cole mentioned in another thread.

    Quote Originally Posted by drcole View Post

Occasionally, the hairs do not shed. They stay in their state of elongation following the first two weeks after hair transplantation without falling out. These are dead keratin and they should be removed because the body will attempt to wall off the dead keratin or form a cyst, pustules, or "black head" around the non-growing hair. You can pluck them with tweezers and they will come out like a pin out of soft, warm butter.

    Sorry bro, i can't answer that, as i'm not an expert or physician. You should speak to your HT surgeon or maybe one of the experts on this forum can answer your question.
