I am now finishing up day 9 post op. My head is feeling much better!! I was able to start washing my hair normally in the shower on day 7 and I feel pretty much back to normal. All of my scabs are gone from my recipient sites and there is no itching or pain there. The only discomfort that I feel is still a little soreness at the donor site, and feels like there still may be scabs back there. I have been trying to be more aggressive with the washing of it, but it is still quite sore to touch. Dr. say's the stitches can come out in 10-12 days. I may get them taken out tomorrow on day 10, or I might wait until day 11 if its still really sore tomorrow. I anticipate that maybe the soreness will get better once the stitches are out. Here are some pics I took yesterday on Day 8
Hi, I had 1200 grafts a three days after you so it was good to read your posts. My progress is very similar to yours. I wanted to ask you how you sleep. It's very difficult for me. I can't lie on my head at all because the donor area is so painful. I haven't slept much since the transplant. What do you do? Can't you lie on a pillow as normal?
