Okay so I’m 10 days post FUE. And I have small scabs and redness on my recipient area.
I know that by removing the scabs it will reduce the redness however I’m being a wimp and I scared about touching the recipient site whilst washing.
Is it same to physically massage the area now?
i am starting to see little cracks forming in my head/ pathways, the scabs are mild and I feel have been kept very hydrated/ moist, aren’t itchy at all.
I have been very gentle and followed precisely all post op routines I haven’t worked/ moves for the last week and still have 4 weeks off.
Im just worried that these blank spaces haven’t been filled but I know they have as it didn’t look like this after surgery/ day 1-6.
Any info or own experiences would be so greatful to help to help put my mind at ease!
Hi everyone. First post on the forum, glad to be here.
Firstly apologies, no doubt my below question will have been asked previously.
I'm currently on day 13 post op FUE after 2500 grafts on my frontal zone.
Tomorrow (day 14 post op) I will be shampooing my recipient area for the first time, as per the instructions from my surgery.
I still have quite a few scabs, and was wondering if it's okay to shampoo them and how to go about it. I don't want to damage or upset anything up there.
I plan on using baby shampoo for the next couple of weeks.
I look forward to your advice, best regards
I had 3 weeks ago a hair transplantation in istanbul.
I did everything the clinic told me.
I didnt touch the recepient area for 10 days.
I used a panthenol spray they told me to use for 10 days.
After 10 days i started massaging the recepient area to lose all the scabs and blood crusts.
I have a lot of questions and I dont find answer even after reading millions of things in google.
They gave me some pills.
One of them was called coraspin. I searched and understand that it is a anti-coagulant.
When they visited me in my hotel room one day after the op, they took it away from me after looking at my head Nd told me that i dont need it. But they didnt take it away from my friend, who came with me and had also a OP.
Why? Why they took it away?
Ahhh and he also asked if im doing a lot of sports and i said yes everyday till now haha.
I saw a lot of bad experiences of people here after waiting for one whole year to get a bad result and it makes me crazy, because i can be also one of them.
I will ad pictures, so maybe some of the experts here, can give their opinion?
Thank u very much guys
I'm now on day 10 post op. I've noticed since day 8 scabs are flaking off with hair in them, I'd say I've lost about 20-30 hairs like this. The Dr advised that shedding would start between 2nd/3rd week and I'm worried it's started too early.
Also, yesterday, a couple of scabs fells off after gentle massage from washing that bled slightly. I've checked the graft sites, but they still have the hair poking out through them.
Generally, I'm still slightly pink and some of the graft sites feel tender when washing.
I had my head shaved and I'm disappointed that my crown area looks much thinner than it did before the shave. It just doesn't seem to be growing back as quick. I had 200 grafts placed there at last minute, so wonder if this is shock loss?
Sorry to have a moan...think it's post op blues :-(
