Woohoo.. Day 14, stitches are OFF !!!

Woohoo.. Day 14, stitches are OFF !!!

Best feeling in a while… Looking forward to a good night sleep… Been 2 weeks since I slept well due to the stitches stabbing my wound everytime I tried to rest my head on a pillow…. But it’s all over now….. So everything is holding-on thight and all crusts and scabs have fallen. Fealth good to take a shower and actually no be afraid to let the flow hit my head.

So, straight baby shampoo it is for at least another 2 weeks. started monoxidil today to help to get the best and fastest results…. and polysporin on the scar for another 3-4 days, until the scar ain’t red anymore.

Also, was great to wear a baseball cap. for those interested, I got the stretch fit model cap that fits loose but looks tight. also, that model has its dome high enough that it doesn’t touch the scalp up top at all and the back is low enough to not touch the scar either. I have an Under Armor cap that fits exactly the same. It is my opinion that one should foresee the need for such a well fitting cap before his or her procedure.

  4. Ahh the heavenly shower once the sutures are removed! That has to be the best feeling after not being able to touch your scalp for 2 weeks 🙂 Love the tip about the hats, I will be sure to pass that along to other patients.

  5. Baby shampoo might be for babies, but it cleans the hair good enough and that’s what counts! I hope you had a restful night.
