Is it normal to have pain in the donor area

Is it normal to have pain in the donor area after an FUE procedure? This whole area is very sensitive since my surgery.
Yes, it is relatively normal to have some pain post operatively in the donor area following Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair transplantation procedures.
In most cases the discomfort subsides over the first few days after the procedure. There are, however, a small percentage of patients who will have prolonged discomfort and/or pain in the donor area following this procedure.
In my experience, all patients will eventually have the pain subside at some point.
