Progress... 5months ?

Recommended Posts

I had a 4000 graft FUE procedure 5 1/2 months ago and I feel things are

going OK.

Yet, if I rub my hand close to my scalp between all the newly growing hair,

I feel stubble the same height as the original #1 guard trim I received the day of surgery.

I just have a question about this.

Do all these shafts eventually become growing hairs or are some just remnants that did not have a vital hair bulb.

I was thinking if they didn't have a vital bulb below them they should have fell out already.

Is that true?

Hi debugged

I'd say they are most likely new growth . From what I've read on here it can take up to 18 months for full result. You are probably not even half way there so I'd relax and try not to panic. I've had stubble some weeks and not as much other days so I'd say that's just some hairs growing.

A friend of mine is now 2 years post op and says that all the way along you can get phases of growth and also some shedding here and there. It can take a while to settle . You have had quite a lot of grafts and some grow months before others . Anyway it can only get better so relax and try not to obsess on it. Best wishes D
