Two days after the surgery and I’m feeling pretty good, all things considered. My neck is a little sore since I’ve been sleeping basically in a sitting up position. There’s a little bit of soreness on my scalp but thankfully the pain medication helps with that.
I find myself wondering if I should have gone through with a second surgery, only because I was really happy with the results of my first. Compared to the first restoration, I have more spots on my head this time where it continues to bleed just a little, though I’m sure this will stop soon. My list of instructions for today includes treating my scalp with medicated pads twice for 20-40 minutes each time and making sure the stitches are clean. I also have a medicated gel that I have to apply to the stitches that will help the donor area heal quickly and with minimal scarring. Finally, they told me to spray a medicated solution onto my scalp approximately every hour to help the transplanted follicles heal properly. All of these treatments have copper peptides in them that are intended for skin grafts/hair transplants. I’ll continue this tomorrow as well.
