      Hi,   Has anyone undergone a double incision mastectomy procedure? I have large breasts with loose skin and thinking of undergoing this procedure to get greater precision in nipple size and scar placement. But I am also a little worried about this. Does this cause too much pain? I have heard that the surgical binders and dressers may be changed periodically, but how long will it take for me to be binder free? Does it take more than a month? Does anyone know in detail regarding this procedure? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
    • newguy
      Cool. Nice collections!!! I really liked that blue one.
    • newguy
      I think Julian would be a good choice, since it is associated to your birth name.

      I always think of names in terms of how they'll really be used. People LOVE to shorten or modify names if they're familiar with you, as I'm sure you know, so you may consider thinking a little in those terms, too.

      Al, Alex, Alexander
      Jules, Julian
      Jaxx, (Jackson?)

      If you like Jaxx, maybe it could be the shortening of a more conventional name?

      I actually like all of them! If I had to choose? Probably Alexander, but the rest are very close seconds. 🙂
    • Jani
      Understand that your wife may support and love you but won't be able to stay as married.  Take the time to consider each others thoughts.   Jani 
    • Jani
      I like the name Julian, although Alexander is fine.  Jaxx not so much.  Willow is correct about Julian being close to what your parents gave.     Jani
    • Willow
      I’m having a bad day today. Not from questioning but because I am feeling stronger that I need to transition and that is going to cause problems for my wife.  Whatever I do it either hurts me or her.  We are trying to help each other but I don’t think she can accept me if I transition.  We took our granddaughter to a movie this afternoon for two reasons, to entertain her, and to take my mind off things.  As the movie was starting I was pretty upset.  My wife realized how I was and reached over and took my hand. I really needed that and told her so.   Willow
    • CyndiRae
      What a nice listen Jani, they're great, all of them. It's way cool production from a "super group"   C -
    • Willow
      If I recall from another post, you said Alex was a name friends gave you, not a bad start if it still made your short list.  Julian honors the name your parents gave you so another good choice.  I guess the the question you need to consider is friends, parents or completely new?  We can all tell you the name each of us likes best, but it’s your new name.  you may need help with how to choose, but you have to decide.  It’s not our name it’s yours.  Good luck. Let us know what you decide.   Willow  
    • Alex Skelton
      Okay so ive been thinking about names and i narrowed the list down to three names. The names are Alexander, Julian (which is the masculine form of my birth name), or Jaxx. I cant decide between the three of them. Which name do you like better?
    • Jani
      I was listening to The Traveling Wilbury's Vol. 3 in my car today.  Only two of them are still with us; Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan.  May their souls be at rest wherever they are; Roy Orbison, George Harrison, and Tom Petty.  Great voices all.
