    Default 6 Days in What do you think?

    I know, I know, I need to be patient and calm down. Had my transplant done 6 days ago. Supposedly 3,000 grafts, although I dont believe it was really 3,000, but who knows. Just wanted to get the experts opinion.

    Please keep in mind I was not bald on the top, I had thin hair, but there was hair there indeed. Before my surgery, the doctor shaved the top of my head, which I didn't mind, but had I known he was gonna do that, I would've trimmed my sides just a little, because as you can see from the pictures, I have extremely thick side hair.

    The 1st pic I took with flash just now. The 2nd pic is from this morning, and I LOVE the way it looks so far, minus the really thick sides.

    Appreciate the feedbacks, please be as brutally honest as possible.

    North I'm 13 days in now and so far top is coming out real well. im DYING to trim the sides, dying!! But doc said to wait at least 20-30 days, he said he recommends this because he doesn't want to risk me getting an infection from the blades or scissors in my donor area
