Few! Got a little concerned as have been struggling to remove the scabs on day 7 and 8 but fortunately day nine they have come away quite easily when rinsing the lotion off. Will remove the last few bits tomorrow but almost past the hard part and the rest will be out of my hands so no point in stressing from this point onwards!

Almost 2 weeks after surgery and all healed up. Couple marks left from the darker scabs and a little bit of redness in the recipient area but other than that, looking all good. The next phase of the hair falling out will be scary i'm sure although apparently this doesn't happen to everyone which I hope will be the case for me (although sounds as if unlikely).

Next post will be a bit further down the line either when the hair falls out or there's something significant to show.

Looks neat.

Don't worry, the shed is coming.... we all thought we would be the one's to keep the hair!

Should see some growth around March/April.

YUP, and even though we all know it's coming it truly hurts, especially after the scabs drop and all those pretty hairs are looking at you.

Just gotta keep the faith!

So 24 days since surgery and starting to notice a significant amount of the hairs falling out. Can see clearly however that at least a couple of lone hairs are clearly growing straight away as they are just as long as the rest of my hair which is good sign I guess.

I've been on Finasteride for quite a while now, been taking Biotin since surgery and have just started the Minoxidil spray a couple days ago as instructed by the doctor. Said it was fine as long as not too red up there still which is calming down now so guess it's okay.

I know I mustn't use hot water on the area for at least two months (or sauna etc) but if there's any other advice people can give me to try and get a successful outcome i'd be very appreciative to hear!

Shedding has slowed down massively now and only perhaps see one or two hairs falling out a day if that. Expect be a while till post anymore pictures as it's the dormant time coming up so wish me luck!

Generally, your hair looks like shit, after the shed. This is a stage where time really drags and you never stop inspecting your head in the mirror.... Just get on with life and the growth will start soon enough.

I'll do some next weekend as it will be 2 months since surgery. To be honest, not really any change since last images but from what I understand that's completely normal.
I wont be seeing anything happen until at least month 3 at the earliest by the sounds of it but it is rather difficult to believe it will all grow back at the moment, even when you've seen plenty of other people go through exactly the same process.

Still keeping my fingers and toes crossed for a good result!

Just in case it weren't obvious in the original photo's, I was completely bald at the front half of the recipient areas so those long hairs growing there must be very healthy transplants. Hopefully it's a sign the rest will grow back well (fingers crossed!!!)
