First Post-Op Appointment with Dr. Safir

Today was my first post-op appointment with Dr. Safir! I had not left the apartment since surgery, so this was going to be quite the outing for me. HA! Mom and one of my friends came with me. We left the apartment exactly when we wanted to and the drive there was quick and smooth. Have... Continue Reading →


1 Week Post-Op First Stage Metoidioplasty

But first, a little bit about Day 6. Day 6: There would have been nothing to say about this day in particular, except that at the end of the day after I got off the phone with my GF, I noticed something wet in the bed. That's right, for the first time since I was probably... Continue Reading →

Post Op: Days 4 and 5

Day 4 I woke up feeling great! I walked out of my room and for the first time, it didn't suck to stand up and walk around. I had a good breakfast and hung around the apartment like normal. The big story with day four was POOPING. I say this not to be funny (who doesn't love... Continue Reading →

Post Op: Days 2 and 3

Day 2 After an amazing night's sleep, I woke up around 7AM. My friends helped me up and today we decided to put me on the couch, allowing for a more reclined position, taking pressure off my back, tailbone and swelling. My appetite finally returned on this day. I had an excellent lunch and dinner.... Continue Reading →

Post-Op: Day 1

I had breakfast, called my mom, called my GF, tooled around on the computer, etc. I was in a squishy chair sitting on my donut. Over the course of the morning, my tailbone and lower...

I woke up before my alarm went off (surprise) and took a shower. The prep from the day before also had an extra surprise. -.- Of course I was nervous, because I'm human. I talked to my mom and my GF on the way to the surgery center. Once there, I continued to be nervous,... Continue Reading →

Pre-Op Appointment with Dr. Michael Saifr

I can't believe surgery is finally here. I spent yesterday traveling. Man, flights from the east to the west are long. My pre-op appointment with Dr. Michael Safir was around noon PST. My caregivers and I arrived early and I filled out paperwork. Then, I was called back to the exam room. Grainne (nurse) went over... Continue Reading →

Surgery Date with Dr. Michael Safir

I meant to make this announcement about a month ago, but D-day (HA!) has been confirmed: March 7th, 2018 and will take place in San Fransisco, CA. Ultimately I chose Dr. Safir because of his versatile urological experience. The decision was harder than I thought it would be because I really like Dr. Wittenberg personally. In...

5 Years on T

Five years ago today, I took a huge step in my transition - my first shot of testosterone. SO many things have happened since that day. Romantic relationships have come and gone, as have friendships. I've had top surgery, a hysterectomy, and I'm preparing for metoidioplasty. Let's get to the nitty gritty. Hair: My hair... Continue Reading →
