Question Skin grafts?

Hello, this is my first post, I'm 15. When I was 3 or 4 I got an electric shock which burned my fingers, I got a small skin graft on the top of my middle finger and a smaller one on the finger next to my pinky finger, it was either that or amputation- god forbid, my parents had to get a loan. The bigger one is darker colored, the skin for it was taken from the side of the same hand, and the wrist, it's not very noticeable.

My question is, [B]do skin grafts last FOREVER[/B], will they last forever and grow as my hand grows, do they become like ordinary skin because I can feel with them normally. The bigger one was very deep an burned to near the bone, I remember the doctor saying that, but now I'm fine, well, it's long forgotten now, it's been 11 years, I have never visited a doctor with regards to them, after that I remember putting some cream and putting my hand in salt water, then I went to the doctor once and it was over, the whole thing was long forgotten, I didn't even know what a skin graft was until recently and I'm just wondering, should I be worried or do skin grafts just become a normal part of your skin, because I remember that when I was small the grafts were bulging a bit but now they aren't much, so do they last forever, is it over or is there something in the longterm that I have to do or something?
