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!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.
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

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!
Thank you Allie for the confirmation of time and latest position.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!
I will make a full and exhaustive report! Having been to the hospital today I feel the process has begun, I just have to do the bowel prep tomorrow and it will be my time!!! OK, I am starting to get a mix of nervousness and excitement!Good luck Allie, i am with you all the way, and please, take good notes and give them to me!
Sounds like a pretty Shitty day but it will be so worth it!I will make a full and exhaustive report! Having been to the hospital today I feel the process has begun, I just have to do the bowel prep tomorrow and it will be my time!!! OK, I am starting to get a mix of nervousness and excitement!
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? HI will make a full and exhaustive report! Having been to the hospital today I feel the process has begun, I just have to do the bowel prep tomorrow and it will be my time!!! OK, I am starting to get a mix of nervousness and excitement!
LindeI 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.
