2 mont˙s post op and still have hairs that haven't shed.

Hello, I am 2 months post op and I still see small hairs in the recipient area that haven't shed from the transplant. I read that in another post that it was ok to pull these hairs out but I would just like some reassurance. Does gently pulling the hairs out effect the grafts? Is it uncommon for transplanted hair to stay this long? Will if effect new hair growth? Will the new hair push out the old transplanted hair? If anyone could give me advice it would be a lot of help. Thanks!

Technically, the grafts should be fully anchored and you could pluck it. However, still having non-shed grafts at 2 months post-op really isn't abnormal.
