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.
