Did I pulled off some (or alot) of hair grafts? (photo)

This was my third night after the 2000 hair transplant surgery. I didnt realize but I was scratching my head while I was asleep. I suddenly woke up and felt blood running down head. I checked the mirror and saw a lot of blood. Have I totally ruined my surgery? How many do you think have I lost?

There is a lot of blood. I would call your doctor for a check up. You may have lost grafts but it would be difficult to tell

Did I lose grafts?

When there is bleeding, there is a suggestion that you did in fact, lose grafts. Go back to your doctor and ask him to examine you and let you know the damage you might have done
