    The next day

    Today is my first day after my procedure of 900 grafts in my hairline (but I think I may have actually gotten 1,000), and things seem to be going just fine. My donor area is pretty painful, but Vicodin works well for that. I can, however, feel the effects of the Vicodin wearing off after about 4-5 hours. At hour 6, I pop another couple pills, and about 45-60 mins later after the Vicodin starts kicking in, I'm good to go.

    The most painful part of the procedure for me was when they administered the local anesthetic. I was pretty high at that point from the pills and nitrous oxide, but I remember yelling the F word.

    So far, I'm definitely glad I did this, although I'm looking forward to the pain in my donor area to go away.

    Not sure what else to write.

    Sit back and enjoy it. Try to not look in the mirror 100 times a day...but I did.
