    I got a FUE hair transplant of 3500 follicles done 2 weeks back. My recipient area feels very heavy and is also completely numb. I understand the reason for numbness, but the heaviness is really disturbing and worrying.
    Please help!

    HI Guys

    I had just done my transplant less than 3 weeks ago(3300 grafts). I had mild pain for about 2 weeks(it could be also due to the fact that i was on painkillers for like about 10 days).

    The doc prescribed me combiflam for pain which is a great tablet and augmentin(antibiotics).

    But the pain is totally gone and all redness in the back of the head is gone. Try taking these and if you still have pain after 2-3 weeks after the procedure, u def need to see a doctor.

    Tenderness in the donor area can last several months but should gradually dissipate month to month. That said, if you are still experiencing extreme pain after 2 weeks that’s affecting your sleeping, I strongly recommend that you speak to your physician. At this point, while it’s normal to experience some mild discomfort, you should be able to lay on your back without experiencing any significant pain.

    Please keep us posted on how your consult with your physicians goes.

    Hi Bill,

    I had a hair transplant 2 weeks ago… how long do you thing the pain of the donor site incision will last?? I can’t lie on my back yet because the incision site still hurts. I know it’s only been two weeks, but how long do you think this particular pain will last?

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had a poor experience. However, I can tell you with 100% certainty that hair transplantation, when done right, works very well. Personally, I’d be 100% bald on top if it weren’t for the 4 hair transplants I’ve already had. To read my experience, journey and view my before/after photos, visit my hair loss website.

    Best wishes,

    I had HT 4years ago. I still have numbness and tingling. I also have tightening of scalp. I am diabetic and doctor should not have done HT on me. My blood glucose is high because of tingling in the head. I have been on many nerve pain medication and nothing is helping. Procedure was done by bosley. I didn”gain any hair. HT is fraud and doesn’t work. I had 2300 graft and cost $12,000 plus. Is the pain will go away.
