That’s something that can vary between individuals, and sometimes greatly…both in terms of degree of acuteness and longevity.

From personal experience and with many patients, it usually comes in about 5 days or so post FUE and can last a week, worse at night also for me and patients as the norm. It will subside and pain killers, cold aloe vera, vit b etc all usually help...

I represent Dr. Bisanga.

The pain I experienced in the donor area in regards to the extraction sites was actually extremely minimal and I barely remember it all. That's how insignificant it was. However, I did experience bursts of nerve pain/irritation in the donor area that lasted a couple of weeks. From what I gather, this isn't something that's super common/to be expected, but it's also nothing to be alarmed about either. When people mention donor pain post-op, I think this is mostly what people refer to - and it typically resolves itself on its own fairly quickly.
