If you are having issues after surgery, especially with "pain" you should contact your doctor.
If you are having issues after surgery, especially with "pain" you should contact your doctor. Everyone may experience pain differently but burning sensation is not typical.
Pain in donor area
Pain/burning in the donor area 5 days after your procedure is not unusual.There can still be some swelling in the area which causes discomfort.If this pain lasts more than 2 weeks or so than I would schedule a follow-up with your surgeon.
Some mild discomfort is fairly normal to be feeling, but a burning sensation is unusual- I encourage you to ask your doctor about it and seek out a solution for why that is happening.
