@Linde it seems like just about everybody goes home with a catheter in place. At least most of the people I read about go home that way. Most people are kicked out of the hospital as quickly as possible. It's disgusting if you ask me.

That depends on which hospital and doctor one chooses! If you are on Medicare you can protest an early release. Many trans patients in Europe stay for about two weeks in the hospital, to make sure all possible complications can be handled there.

On day 2, they moved me to the recovery centre, where I stayed for another 4 days. By the time they let me go, the catheter was out and I was peeing normally. They required two successful pee tests, using ultrasound to confirm that you were emptying your bladder, before they would let you go home.

That is whst they did with me, too. Bowl movement and peeing were the criteria. The did not need to move me,because the entire floor was for LGBTQI people only.

Depends on the kind of money you actually have. Or if insurance will actually pay for it. I have neither. I’d be lucky if they let me stay for two hours.

I would recommend that you buy a short time insurance for those kind of surgeries, otherwise you can easily go broke on the cost. Just a ever so slight complication can drive the cost into ridiculous levels.

Day four of forever ... it my first day at home. I am glad to be home. It is pretty amazing to know that my entire lower region has been changed.
How is your pain? Do you still have all the packing, or is it removed already? How about the stent in the neo-vagina? And when do you have to start with dilation?

All the stuff was out prior to me leaving the hospital. The also taught me how to dilate on the last day there.
When are you to start and who will teach you how to to it right?

Tuesday when they pull it out at their office it’s only cuz I am local that I don’t have to be at a recovery center. They release everyone three days later to a hotel or recovery center

Just be prepared, the pulling out is a little uncomfortable, because the stent is sutured into the vagina most of the time. In my case, they even had the packing sutured to my legs and my stomach skin.

I was glad to see you in good spirits last night. Obviously you’re uncomfortable and you’re quite tired but that’s OK it’s called recovery. Now we just got to figure out who’s boobs you stole.....Lol... probably look better on you anyway.

Day five of forever. The pain has set in and I am definitely feeling it. Most of the time it’s when I stand up and I think it’s my catheter adding gravity pull too

You really have to wait until catheter, packing and stent are gone, before you can make a real pain judgement.

Well one more day till I think it sinks in that it’s done. I mean I never used a men’s bathroom anyway anymore so far nothings changed in that regard. I’ve lived as myself for years so I don’t really change that. But tomorrow fingers crossed the bolster should come out and I should be introduced the the zen art of dialating. Once I feel something go into my body then and the actual view of no penis then I think it will set in that my sweet little girl has finally made her grand entrance
