Thanks Bm.

It was a good day yes, really enjoyable. I've been advised by the clinic to wait 7 days before washing so for now, it can just look unsightly. It was a strange feeling taking the bandage off and getting air to the donor area. It felt like the sides and back of my head were wet

It looks to be healing well. There's a few scattered blotches of dried blood which are nothing to worry about.
At least you can stay indoors without giving a reason during the lockdown. Your first hair wash will feel good. Only 2 more days to go.
Has all the swelling gone?

It has gone down yes. I was a little worried at first because the left hand side of my hairline looked uneven compared to my right. Impatience and over-worrying...that's all it was.

Day 7 - First wash!

Pictures below after the first wash. I was told to leave the shampoo on for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with a jug of water. Once the shampoo was massaged into my head the sides and back of my head started to itch and I had a blotchy mark on my forehead and on the back of my neck (maybe because of the chemicals in the shampoo). It was nothing untoward and this subsided within 20 minutes of rinsing.

I've been advised to use aloe vera gel to put on after each wash to help with the dryness.

Looking forward to being able to resume a normal sleeping position tonight!

I also got sent pre and post op photos yesterday (now attached). Moving forward I'll post pictures in here on a weekly basis.

It is. Went and bought aloe gel today as my scalp gets really dry once washed. I reckon a couple more washes and I'll be scab free. The donor area looks amazing already!

Your hairline design looks fantastic; not just saying this, but it genuinely looks natural. Also, from the Day 9 photo, your donor area scarring doesn’t look too noticeable considering you are only 9 days post opp.

What a great time for you to get this done....you’ll be in good shape once the UK eventually re-opens again!
