I woke up with an itchy scalp not at the donor or recipient sites but just in general. It wasn't connected to the procedure but rather to the fact that I hadn't washed my hair since Tuesday and it was a greasy mess. I used the shampoo they provided to gently wash my hair by massaging my scalp while maintaining a safe buffer from the recipient site's and pouring warm water over it to rinse. That corrected the issue.
Towards the end of the day I noticed minimal swelling on my forehead. I didn't do anything about it because it wasn't distressing and I didn't want to touch the grafts with anything (i.e. an ice pack). I only mention it in case you experience the same you'll know it's unlikely to be a cause for concern.
