Arrive at clinic 0830 and was immediately prepared for surgery. After a final discussion with Dr. Path, I took the Valiums and antibiotics, and was knocked out soon after.
The procedure was complete at 4pm and about 2200 grafts were transplanted. I drifted in and out of consciousness and felt very little pain throughout.
Will upload more photos from the clinic once I get them.

After surgery, I even had ice-cream at Siam Discovery Centre to celebrate!


However it was tough to sleep at night. The pressure on the back or sides of the head made it quite painful. Sleeping on a recliner or using a neck pillow may help. In the end I fell asleep on my ear/cheek.
