It's been four months today since we completed the surgery. My new hairline is becoming more obvious everyday! I would also like to report that the numbness which I've experience on top of my head has begun to wear off the past week or so. It's slightly tender much like the donor area was for many weeks. It's not uncomfortable at all and its still a bit "blotchy" and red-ish. Dr. Vories said this discoloration is normal and most likely indicates active hair growth. Good news for me!!!!!
