If you hit your head hard enough to have normal hair loss, you probably lost the transplanted hairs as well.

If you hit your head hard enough to have normal hair loss, you probably lost the transplanted hairs as well.  If you did lose your grafts, how can you expect anyone to put a number to that from a description?  

The best option is to follow up with your doctor for a recheck.

Without the picture you stayed was attached, it would be difficult to comment other than to state that grafts are hard to remove after 5-6 days.
