14 days after my 1400 grafts fue hair transplant, my hair is falling out. (photos)

I woke up on the first morning after 2 weeks of my operation and found alot of hair fallen out on my mattress. So I took pictures. I might have itched my head a little while im sleep. Can you please explain this to me? and are those grafts or follicles that have fallen out ? What about my normal hair that have fallen out, is that natural ?

It is normal to lose transplanted hairs weeks after surgery. It may take 6 to 12 months to see new hairs grow out.

Hair falling out after a hair transplant

If you are not referring to post op shedding of the hairs in the grafts but hair loss, then you have developed shock loss. See video below
