Default Minoxidil after fue ht

sorry if this has been asked a million times before,, but i have been using minoxidil for the 2 last years, started on spectral dnc, but changed to rogaine foam, maybe 8 months ago, found the results v good, and have just had an fue ht, 1558 grafts, am 6 days out, have started using the rogaine again on areas that wernt touched during surgery, donor and recipient, but was wondering how long to leave it till i can use on the recipient site, (hairline)??

I was prescribed minoxidil by my ht surgeon , to be used 6 weeks after surgery .
But i had never used minoxidil ever before so may be there was that factor ..

I think u ll be safe starting it 3 weeks after surgery ..

Maybe abit of gyno under my right nipple but I dealt with that using tamoxifen, and obviously some initial shedding when I first started using it
