My Dr. gave told me to do not rub the transplantation zone after 15 days. But I've read several times that you can rub carefully the zone after one week. Do you agree with him? Thank you in advance. Best

Post op care after Fue operation
Each doctor may have their own routine for post op care. But in general you need to wash very gently, with no rubbing for the first seven days. All washing stages should be performed daily ; softly using palms, with no pressure. 7 days later you may start massaging the recipient area by using your fingertips because after 15 days there should be no more traces of dried blood or scabs on your scalp.
All the best
I think your doctor, who performed your surgery and knows the exact details of your transplant, likely has more accurate advice catered to your specific case compared to random tips from the internet. If you are doubting them then perhaps having a conversation with them about why that is. Your doctor may have a certain reason for telling you to wait longer than everyone on the internet doesn't know about.
