Is my donor area overharvested? Is there hope? (Photos)

5100 grafts would be considered a very high number / large session. Your concerns are justified.
Overharvesting of the donor area
Safe Donor Area
I cannot clearly tell from your pictures the extent of the FUE extraction area but if it approximates the shaved area it is not appropriate. It is impossible to get 5,000 FUE grafts from the safe donor area. You can get 5,000 grafts but a great number of them may be programmed to be lost from male pattern balding.
