I clearly can feel new hairs on the top of my head and my wife confirms it as well! Prior to the surgery all I could feel was my scalp and a few hairs. Now, I feel little "prickly" hairs everywhere. I suppose they could be transplanted hairs but I believe they are new hairs.
I haven't had a hair cut since the surgery but I'll be getting one soon. My wife is a hair dresser so that makes it very convenient for me. The donor area is no longer sensitive when you rub it so I consider it 95% healed at this point. The recipient area is still a bit numb but Dr. Vories said that will remain for a little while longer.
I'll post some new pictures soon!
