So far I’m at 68 days (give or take a day) post-op and I’ve experienced some limited hair growth in the recipient area (I had hair transplanted into a childhood scar) as well as shock loss around my donor scar. Since my procedure, I’ve been experiencing mild sensitivity around my donor scar. It’s difficult to explain. It isn’t painful but it isn’t comfortable either and, on occasion if I turn my head in a certain angle, it can still hurt my donor scar or make it feel uncomfortable. I’ve always attributed this to tightness, etc., of the donor scar. It feels like pulling or something.
Anyway, I’ve been surfing around trying to see if anybody else has been experiencing any odd pain such as weird stinging pain above the actual donor scar and I think I found a post where one hair transplant patient mentioned he had a staple or stitch left over in his donor area. I’m thinking the same may apply to me, which has me worried, and I noticed when I feel my scar there’s a slight thread-like substance felt above the very edge of my donor scar. What is it? I have no idea as I’ve never noticed it until now and nobody has ever mentioned it despite the number of people I’ve had inspected my scar to assure it wasn’t stretching during the initial first month or so.
