    Default Wearing a hat post care?

    I'm 3 days out of my FUT. Thanksgiving gathering today and there is no way I am going unless I can cover my head.

    I don't get it, so much conflicting advice. My Dr put a surgical hat on me after he performed the surgery and sent me home. I wore a hoodie and covered my head with the hood flying home the next day. The after care pamphlet says you can wear a hat 3 days after. But I go online and read the complete opposite with others saying one week.

    What do I believe?

    I am not wearing a baseball cap because it wouldn't help hide my very swollen both sides of face, was thinking more along the lines of the surgical hat and then a beanie on top of it..easier to hide the swollen sides of my face.

    that would be day 6

    Would also like to hear some feedback of others

    My doctors office/rep said it is ok, but of course will speak to the doctor on tuesday,

    Per Doctor internet and my Doctor's advice, it takes about 5-7 days for the new grafts to be secure in its place , so there is a chance that your hat can damage the grafts.
    I choose to avoid meeting people rather than wearing a hat , i did not wanted to leave any reasons for failure of the transplant , the time and money invested in the procedure is a lo
    and there are many reasons you may not get the results , hence I choose to control the reasons and I followed my doctors advice to a letter.
    day 6 should be ok , however I was advised that for shorter period its okay but if you are planning to wear the hat whole day , then you must be honest with your doctor and know clearly what could be the risk from your Doctor.
