It is normal to lose transplanted hairs weeks after surgery. It may take 6 to 12 months to see new hairs grow out.

Hair Loss After Transplant

If you are speaking about transplanted hair that is expected. The newly transplanted follicles enter a resting phase and the hair generally sheds 2-4 weeks after surgery. It generally will regrow between 2 and 5 months with full growth at 10-12 months post surgery if performed correctly.

Normal maybe

This sounds like a normal progression. However you should still go in for a follow up just to make sure.
