Good news:

  • Right on cue, the scabs are turning crusty and shedding.

  • Donor scar is healing well. At times I've already forgotten it's there.

  • I can shampoo normally but still going gentle on the donor and donee areas. Washing twice a day and leaving the shampoo in for 5 minutes.

Not so good news:

  • There is shock loss at the donor site. It started 1 week after surgery. Fortunately my hair was long enough to cover it reasonably well.

  • A little itch at the donor area but I can easily live with that (I'm better with itch than pain)

  • I can still feel a very slight ache at donor area when I lie on my pillow but nothing that affected sleep.

Front View - You can see the scabs coming off. They look like dandruff! (sorry these photos are a little disgusting)
