After 10 days your grafts were anchored firmly in place. You should be fine. Now you have to wait for growth. Rogaine and Propecia are not mandatory but I would follow your Doc's advice.

Hello rikky,

 

I second what plugvet says. Your grafts are more than likely just fine. I seem to recall reading here somewhere that if you had done any damage to your grafts there would have been bleeding & it would have been more obvious that you had actually pulled out any grafts.

 

Now you just gotta wait it out like the rest of us. Most folks seem to find the next couple months to be pretty unremarkable in terms of noticable growth, with a few exceptions of course. My guess would be that you'll be much happier and more pleased once the holiday season is upon us (timing wise).

 

Good Luck!

I had mine about the same time as you had yours, and I am probbaly at about hte saem growth stage. I really think you have nothing to worry about in that aspect. I have also pulled a graft. If you would have pulled one, you would have had quite a bit of blook on your scalp from it;it would have been obvious, so you are probbaly set.

 

Yeah, waiting sucks.
