1 Month Post Op Recovery

One Month in from my Hair Transplant with Hasson & Wong and this post continues my post op recovery.
Having reached the 1 month point what are my observations to this point.
Recipient area- Seems totally normal all pinkness has now faded and nearly all as far as I can see of my grafts have shed. I am left with the pre op hairs at a short length and possibly some additional new grafts that have not shed although impossible to say for sure. I see very few hairs now when I wash my hair so that is a sign that the grafts have shed. The area feels normal to touch with no pain or sensitivity.
Donor Area – Tightness has more or less gone now around my neck and I will be returning to play football and usual exercise. I left things a bit longer than last time as my closure was tighter than someone who has not had surgery before.
Numbness- Still very numb above the scar and towards the top of my head – this is normal and will take anywhere between a couple of months to a full year to fully recover. The scar is fine to touch now and causes no pain when washing hair. It feels a little sunken still in places and that will change over the coming months. I can feel stubble around the scar which is my native hair that was shaved growing back. I had some temporary shock loss around the scar line which will take a few months to grow back.
I get the odd occasional weird sensation in the donor area where it is numb on moving my head or touching certain parts of my face, it sounds strange but it is the nerves repairing.
So to sum up I feel totally fine and other than the numbness above the scar line and my hair being much shorter than what it was pre op. Certainly you would not know I have had a transplant and I have been sporting a beard for the last month to divert peoples attention from my scalp on catching up with people I have had more comments about the beard that the new short look.
