7 Months Growth
At 7 months you still are probably not at the final product. Final growth is usually not reached until a year after the initial transplant. If at that point you are still unhappy, your best bet is to talk it through with your doctor to discuss the possibility of a second treatment.
It may take 6 to 12 months after surgery to see results. If you are concerned about your progress see your doctor for a follow
Unhappy with result from FUE
It is impossible to assess how far you have travelled without knowing where you started from. In other words, without the benefit of a before procedure evaluation, documented through photography and video, it is impossible to determine how good a result you have or how much more is yet to come. Please relax, because it is still early in your post-operative course. Your surgeon, armed with the necessary photos is in the best position to evaluate your progress. If there was little in place before, then this might be a good result, if you had a similar amount then this is a poor outcome, but only so far because it may still come in in the next 5 months!

I'd recommend you speak with your surgeon soon about expectations. Perhaps he or she is very pleased and you are disappointed - which means your expectations are simply off. Or perhaps you both expected more.
Yes, often a second surgery is needed for many individuals.
