I'm assuming your surgeon only took grafts from the left side of your head (based on the pictures)?  I would have thought he would take equal number of grafts from the left and right side of your head.  Could be shock-loss.  I had no discernible shock-loss but many do.  Time will tell. Hang in there. Could be just fine in a few short months.

We would need immediate post op pictures of the full extraction zone to see the pattern. With this information we could make an educated guess as to what you're dealing with. In my opinion if the extraction zone was the full donor area and not just the left side as shown, then it's shock loss. However, if all 2800 grafts were taken from just this area shown there's potential it was over harvested. 

Bosley 11-2016 FUE - 1,407 grafts

Dr. Diep 09-2017 FUE - 2,024 grafts

Dr. Konior 03-2020 FUE - 2,076 grafts

Dr. Konior 09-2021 FUE - 697 scalp to scalp, FUE - 716 beard to beard Total scalp FUE - 6,204 grafts

Did they only extract from that side?
