Hair Transplant Surgery by Dr. Feller Tuesday August 19, 2014
My initials are A.M. Tuesday August 19, 2014 was the surgery day at Dr. Feller clinic in Long Island NY. He performed the procedure and oversaw the whole procedure. The technician team were amazing putting me at ease, made me feel very comfortable! And sharing stories with me. Thanks to front desk Cathy and to the technician team Cathy, Carla, and the rest.
The night before I didn't get much sleep only about 3 hours I don't recommend that for any future patient. I arrived at 715am I was early and Dr. Feller came in at 730am greeted me, opened the clinic and showed me the restroom area. Dr. Feller took pictures of me at his office then we went to the surgery room with over 7 female technicians. The hardest part for me was the needle pinch from the anesthesia but soon I didn't feel nothing. However, the procedure was long so I got more needles. The female technician kept asking me if I feel any pain. I said no fearing the needle but she assured me it wont hurt. She called in Dr. Feller to put more anesthesia.
After the surgery I was mentally exhausted. I am so shocked that finally I did this procedure and it means a lot to me!! I am amazed to see my head with hair. Dr. Feller gave me 7 medical bills for pain. I only used one at the first day late afternoon after the surgery. The following days I didn't need it NO PAIN just sleeping was difficult discomfort because of the donor area also because sleeping while head elevated and on my back. Wed was the 2nd day swelling not showing yet. 3 day and 4th day no pain just swelling on my forehead and side of my face. 5th and 6th day no pain just swelling but now is below my eyebrows and below my eyes especially below my right eye.
The 7th day was Mon August 26 the swelling was gone. I am just feeling tightening on the lower area of the back of my head donor area no pain.
Still feeling sensation behind my head today is Tuesday the 8th day after the procedure. However, as Dr. Feller mentioned in one of his videos I should calm my mind and let the healing take its course. : )
The 9 th day getting better shampooing my scalp and washing off the scabs.
Today August 29, 2014 Is the 10th day post my hair transplant procedure by Dr. Feller. I am very happy and very grateful to Dr. Feller and his team. Words can't express how I feel, words can't express my gratitude to the very kind and caring Dr. Feller!!!!
I cleaned my scalp very well from the scabs. However, the donor area I was afraid to rub while shampooing because of the staples!
Today at Dr. Feller I met him and as usual he took pictures then I got the staples removed his medical technician Paula.
Dr. Feller told me to visit his clinic in a few months about 6 months I should have lots of hair growing in the center of my head. Right now I have the transplanted hair before that I had just a few very thinning hair in the center of my head.
I am so happy and I wish the transplanted hair stays hoping for miracle : ) Dr. Feller said the transplanted hair will eventually fall off and the new hair will group back in a few months!! Can't wait I am so happy, but I have to be patient like I been for many years now a few more months!!!
Thank you so much Dr. Feller for making it possible!!!!
