About 3 weeks back i had got a bandage wrapped tightly around my head after a surgery i underwent. Since the bandage was tight, initially it hurt a bit for about 2-3 days, after which the pain subsided. The bandage eventually came off about 4 days later(it was on for 1 week in total). a week after it came off i noticed that area (about 1/2cm in diameter) had formed a kind of scab. A week after that the scab became hard and looked ready to fall off. So a few days back while gently scratching that portion of my head, the scab came off in my hand, and along with it a bunch of hairs growing through it. My worry is that, will this hair grow back? The area where the scab was now looks healed. This happened on the front crown portion of my head, just above my forehead. Will the new growth take long? Thanks.
I don’t really understand the anatomy as you described it. Wrapping the head for a week… well, I have never heard of that excepting in World War I when soldiers had head injuries or Hollywood wanted to get audience sympathy. What I do is put a ‘tennis’ type band around the head (like a sweat band) to keep pressure on the donor wound and take it off next morning just before the hair is washed.
Generally, if the grafts have not been pulled out by the head bandage, they should start to grow in 2-5 months after the surgery and then continue at a rate of about 1/2 inch per month.
