Things are starting to get back to normal and now I am finding it hard to even believe that I had a hair transplant. By this point I was excepting my recipient area to be back to normal, but it is still pink in colour. As
I mentioned before it is slightly noticeable when you look at, but you would never suspect a hair transplant. I know I am my own worst enemy because I just need for it heal and be patient, I know in a few months time I will be looking back at these worries and laughing.
My progress so far:
Recipient Area –
Still slightly pink. Was in contact with Dr Woods and he mentioned if it was red & feels numb I may need antibiotics, but my head feels normal and it is slightly pink so need for that. If you look at the are really close you can see some needle marks from the procedure, my mum says its very very unnoticeable, but I got her to look closely at the area so I can write up on it.
What I expected: Skin to have already healed and to be back to normal.
Different people have different skins that all take different times to heal. I have to appreciate that my skin is healing it is just taking longer than what I expected.
Donor Area –
Everything is back to normal. Other than sometimes I get a little itchy (3 scratches and it is over) but I don’t believe this has anything to do with the transplant just my head is itchy.
What I expected:
Actual meets up with expectations.
No shock hair lose. No real growth. Not that much hair falling out in the shower.
What I expected:
Full set of hair. HAHHAHAH..joking… Looking at the long term, not really going to worry about the short.
Other topics of consideration:
Back on Finasteride after day 5 or 6, but still only using minoxidil on the crown. When I used it on the front my head got slightly a little more pink. I am going to easy off it for one more week.
Next week I am starting it up again. Doctor Wood said just take it easy on the gym for a month because of the risk of contamination is higher at the gym. I feel that it’s a little over the top but I am following doctors orders.
Try to stay out of the sun. I work in an office which means I leave to work in the morning and come home at night. So not a huge issue for me.
I went out with a warmer hat one night, and I found my head got really itchy & sweaty. As a result my skin was slightly pinker the next day. I am going to stay away from warm hats now.
Guys these are my observations, sometimes they may be a little crazy but this is what is going through my head.
I am putting together a video but I want to know if you would find it helpful. If you would like to vote head to my site (look at my profile) and vote.
