I am sorry if this question has been asked before cant seem to find when I searched for it. My question is.

 

1. I am a stomach sleeper, I just had my Transplant 5 days back, when can I start sleeping on my stomach again without fearing that I might damage my grafts while keeping my head on the pillow or brushing my grafts to the pillow.

 

2. When can I start having a full fledged normal shower (without any fear that oh my god what if this happens or that happens or what if I dislodge any hair grafts, already fed up of this paranoia) and when can I start shampooing my head normally, like I used to do it before I went for the transplant. My scalp has become all greasy !! Very badly need a good shower !! :(

Didn't your doctor give you a sheet of instructions?

 

Mine said sleep with a neck pillow only the first 3 nights and I can take a normal shower again on day 5 but just lightly shampoo the grafts and stitches with my fingertips.
