I had fue into strip scar, 300 grafts were implanted to the scar. I slept 17 nights on my stomach post-op. I’m aware of the graft anchoring study from 06, but it was on a virgin scalp. My question is that was that 17 nights post-op enough for the grafts to secure in the scar? My doc said one week is enough and then I can start to sleep normally. The grafts were all singles and doubles. I’m white male, 26yrs.
I agree with your doctor. A week should’ve been fine. Once the eschars are gone, the grafts are stable.
