I had a transplant done five days ago but I feel burning in my donor area and it hurts. Is that normal after five days? (Photo)

The numbness feeling at the 5th day after the operation is too normal especially if during the operation abig mount of local anaesthesia has been used on the donor area
Best what you can do is applaying gentle massage on the donor area to reactive the blood circulation to remove that feeling .
Burning following FUE
There is often mild swelling of the small sensory nerves where the FUE was done that can cause burning. It will go away in time
Burning and stinging sensation is not normal. That said, some people may experience pain differently.
