Hello again

Allie let us all know last May that her GRS is set for January 27th 2021.

Linde has told us today her GRS is set for January 21st 2021. Hence 2 great celebrations less than 3 months away!

Just to confirm that in October I was given the date for my Initial Consultation with the surgeon whom I hope will perform mine. IC date is November 24th in Brighton, UK. I shall let you all know shortly afterwards how the IC went.

Hugs

Pamela xx

PS: Allie - Please forgive me if I have incorrect date for your GRS. Originally you stated January 27th. Was that date brought forward or does it still stand please? Thanking you - Pamela xx

Yes Pamela, I was offered a date in December, but I didn’t want to miss Xmas with my kids, so I settled on the 6th of January! Just 9 weeks away! I hope you will find your date soon!

Hugs,

Allie

Hello again Allie

Obviously it is now January 4th in Australia but 3rd in UK and US.

Therefore GRS MDV just 2 days away and I am sure you have been and still are in preparation for such an important event.

I shall be thinking of you on January 6th - just so I and others know, it is scheduled for morning or afternoon please?

I wish you all the best both for remaining preparation and for the op itself. I hope all goes perfectly on Wednesday for you and that you will not suffer much pain.

So happy for you, twin sister!

Hugs

Thank you Pamela! I am about to drive 2 hours to Melbourne to have a group and hold blood test, then home to clean my house. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I start taking drugs to prepare my gastric system and flush it out. No food from midday until Thursday. So from now it feels like I am in pre op prep, and it is actually happening! Admission is 10 am Tuesday, and I expect to be in theatre at 1 pm!

I am more nervous about the bowel prep and Flagyl (a drug to clear any gastric infections, but it causes strong nausea) than the actual GRS. I am under the required weight, my hospital bag is packed and I am ready to go in 2 days! I can’t wait to wake up Wednesday and be told it all went perfectly!

Hugs,

Allie

You are doing really great Allie. Remember how off I was prior to my vocal cord surgery? You are a solid rock compared to my feelings before the way less involved surgery I had? H
Hang in there, and before you know it the shit (ting) is over, and you get out with a brand new designer vulva!

Hello again Allie

I note from your blog that the time of surgery was brought forward a few hours and that all went well.

Congratulations and speedy recovery. I will be following your blog over your recovery period.


Linde

This has become the Date of Surgery thread. I think you are next on January 21st. I am sure Allie's story will be of great benefit to you.

Hugs to you both.

Thank you Pamela!
Surgery is 15 days away now, and the preop is 6 days away. I am mostly concerned that Corona will not interfere with my surgery.

I had my pre op today, and the surgeon said he wluld hate to not using my available tissue. He thinks he an create a 5" vaginal canal without needing any skin graft.
I later met with a fe ale endocrinologist, and a female psychologist. We talked abojt the minimal depth option a d this 5" alternative. I decided to go with the depth that can be achieved without needing a skin graft.

We also talked about my sexual orientation. I still seem to be as lesbian as can be. I am not able to identify a handsome man or a normal man. I currently live with two cis women, and when the call out a guy to be good locking, I am sitting there and wonder.

I did not have any sexdrive or libido for many years, my testosterone level was zero for many years. Several months ago, my endo pres ribed a small amount testosterone for me, and I now have little bit of libido back. Tbat would be ok when I have my new parts.

No reason why you shouldn't change you option at this late stage as you have, pursuant to being given further truly helpful information.

Just to clarify, does this latest option mean regular or occasional dilation/maintenance please? Thanks

Pamela, this semi depth I will be getting means some limited dilation requirement. But the dilators can be replaced rather soon with an appropriatly sized dildo or vibrator. This will change the chores to dilate into some (hopefully) pleasant self time.
I have all that extra tissue, because I was not circumsized. I do not want the extra wounds caused by harvesting tissue for any grafts, being it surface skin, or pull through or colon tissue.

Hello again Linde

Clearly everything is going ahead on Thursday January 21st. I know there is so much preparation necessary in the final 48 hours.

Hoping all goes really well both before but more relevantly with the surgery on 21st.

I shall be thinking of you on Thursday.

Hugs
