dtyn's - Profile page 01 Jan 2011 - 4 days (Sleep Pains)
Pain: Donor area is tight, I can get by without painkillers in the day. Still need 1 or 2 painkillers when I sleep at night. Area is still slightly sore to touch. No pain at donee area.
Swelling: Subsided, headband off.
Cleaning & Drying: I strongly recommend shampoo twice a day with baby shampoo. Pat dry with towel and blow dry with a gentle cool hairdryer IMMEDIATELY. Keeping clean and dry is very important.

Remember to keep your hair LONG before going for HT. After blow dry and a little clever styling, you can't really tell. Confide in your hairstylist, I did. He/she will be able to help you.
