Why do I feel my donor area swollen and uncomfortable to rest head on it still 3 years after FUE?

Deae Sir I was undergone FUE transplantation before 3 yrs. After surgery the Donner area was swelling and has to be normalised with time, but its strange that I still feel a bump in that area and dont understand why it feels very odd when I touch it, even I can't rest my head comfortably on that area while lying and sleeping. Please tell me how this will be normalised? Or is there something went wrong ?

Having any kind of discomfort or strange sensations at 3 years past your transplant surgery is highly unusual. You should consult your doctor to receive a diagnosis in person.
