Is it normal for hair to shed all at once after a hair transplant?

I know it’s normal for the hair to shed within a week or two after a hair transplant. For me this happened practically all at once. I took a shower and about half of the hair came out. Is this normal? It’s pretty scary and it’s hard not to worry that it’s gone for good.

Hair grafts are typically well-secured within four to five days after surgery. Prior to this, grafts are more prone to dislodging with manipulation such as hair washing. If what you experienced took place 4-5 days after surgery, it is more likely to be a normal occurrence and you should experience regrowth within 3-4 months.
