Posted :5/27/2011

Today was the first day that I was required to clean the donor and recipient areas using some diluted baby shampoo given to me by Dr. Rahal’s office. I used some gauze to lightly scrub the donor area and made sure not to touch the grafted area.

The scabs in the grafted area looked about the same but were maybe a bit darker. The biggest difference today was how incredibly itchy the recipient area was!! Thank goodness Mike gave me a spray bottle of saline to put in the fridge. The cool salt water on the recipient area both keeps the grafts moist, but also helps with the itching. I had no problem following the instructions to spray my head 3-4 times a day.

Finally I washed my head for the second time and went to bed.
