I do know that some of my recipient area hair has come out but I still have the vast majority of it. I've accepted the shock-out but I can't wait for the new hair to surface. It may take a while because it will be generated from the follicle and may take a couple weeks to reach the surface. A man's hair grows about one half inch per month so I must continue to be patient.
One other thing to report. My donor area looks really good but it is still tender to touch. Nothing too uncomfortable but its still healing. I can certainly feel it when I lay my head on the pillow at night. However, it does not keep me from falling asleep.
