Aloe Vera will help. What does your post operative instructions advise?

Could you ask the doc for more pictures to post,also if you could ask him to take some of your donor closure after the sutures/stitches have been removed.

As for post op instructions,you should have been given them on the day of your procedure.

Thanks bm.

This is a cool idea it would be great to see your donor closure straight after the sutures are removed....we dont get the opportunity to see these kind of pics very often;)

need to see how good the closure is, but shockloss is normally temporary, I had a small amount of permanant shockloss, but its possible on my head they just damaged my hair with bad stitching.

It sounds to me as though its just your grafts naturally shedding.

How did the suture removal go and did you get any pictures taken.

Thanks bm.
