I thought I had made a post about staying overnight after my procedure. There it is!

I'm sure others will chime in here and give their opinion but since I just went through it, I'll tell you from my own perspective. This compression garment has made me pretty irritable lol so be patient with them if that happens. I didn't bind before this surgery so that's probably made it worse for me but try to keep them from wanting to rip the damn thing off. lol

Make sure they stay hydrated and also eat something with their pain meds, even if it's just crackers. Taking that stuff on an empty stomach can cause nausea and no one wants to feel like that after surgery. Make a schedule for their meds because it's hard to keep track of what to take when if you have several.

It's really hard to use your arms so they won't be able to reach for things so just be mindful of that. Lastly, just be loving and supportive, probably what you do on a daily basis anyway.

Hope that helps some.

So next week I see the plastic surgeon... discuss the construction of male chest.
( I had bilateral mastectomy due to cancer, so I get top surgery done in 2 stages.)
I am pushing pretty hard for some liposuction in the gut area as well as skin removal... basically get rid of the pizza gut.
since all that extra fat can mess with my T and therefore my gender dyphoria will worsen etc. body image issues, Yada yada
it seems to be , being agreed upon I got the referrals and Recommendations for it from my gp, my endocrinologist, and the transition shrink...
So we shall see

I had my two week follow up with my surgeon yesterday. Everything is looking great and no more wrapping my chest with ace bandages. I only have to wear a compression shirt, which I can certainly do. I feel so much better. Just sleeping lying flat is a huge relief lol. I love seeing my flat chest. It's something I've wished for forever.

Been awhile since I've been able to get online with the house becoming condemned and bouncing around motel to Social Service apt and back to the Red Roof. My doctor left state, and haven't had T for 2 weeks past due. Have a gender appt. on 6/24 having to start over. TG we are moving to a larger town as there's no gender doc here.

Need to get a new PMD too. Loved the doc who moved away; though she ordered a renal US and a 24 hour urine test for glomerular filtration and creatinine clearance. She found me to be in Stage 3 renal failure. My brother died from renal failure at 60. I don't care. Sure his situation was far different.

The supposed easy cardiac clearance...ha...ha...ha
He is sending me for a stress test. Totally blindsided!

After all these hoops, who knows when I'll be able to get top surgery. Truly thought I'd sail through the clearance!

No T, no top surgery, the gender dysphoria is getting worse.

Yes, more Planned Parenthoods are doing that now. I think it might be something that is becoming standard care in all of them. I'm glad you have one near you.

What exciting news about the Planned Parenthoods providing gender specialists or other professionals who are willing to provide HRT for transfolk!!!

Of course, the BAD news is......The frippin' RIGHT WING nutjobs and their current villiage idiot, Trump, are trying to get rid of/defund Planned Parenthoods. Ugh!!!

Wouldn't have known about the their transgender HRT program if the doc the that moved to PA hadn't told me that she was doing educational inservices for regional PP Assn physicians on HRT and other aspects of transgender care. She may have left the area, but also left a bit of her transgender care knowledge behind. This area needs much remediation in various alternative life situations.

Oh mate,im really sorry to hear that.
I just moved to a new area to and was freaked out,about the medical shit,but the local GP has been cool,well so far he hasnt done a script yet,so until I get one i'm a bit nervous,In OZ it has to be cleared by the govt every script.
once again I hope this gets sorted for you.
cheers

Default back to cathesix and sleepybutch

cathesix, thinking of you ... sending best wishes and hugs ...

sleepybutch, huge congrats! so happy for you ... how freeing all of it sounds!

I am not big in the chest parts area but still want top surgery one day ... I have not taken the brief time out to have the surgery. Reading sleepybutch's post is reminding me of what a wonderful gift to myself it would be. And less pain -->> just yesterday I bruised the leftie on a 5" screw I deliberately left sticking out 3.5" of a 4x4 until I could get some other boards lined up. When wood-working, I wish for 8 hands. I finally finished something about an hour after dark last night I have been working on/off for awhile.
