FFS and BA in Thailand


Kasumi63

Recommended Posts

Not much to report now, but I’m heading off to Thailand in a week for FFS and BA. Needless to say, I’m quite excited. Once I arrive in Thailand, I need to be in quarantine for two weeks, so it’s actually another three weeks until my surgeries. Anybody do these surgeries together? Any tips?

Hey!

 

Wish you successful and safe surgeries, quick recovery and more than satisfying results. Sorry, that i am not on topic (very much).

 

I want to ask you to share your experience and if it's possible with which surgeon you have your procedures. I also look forward for Thailand as an option for GRS and I am really "hungry" to know more. Also I will follow your topic to see what the others, with experience in there have to say!

Thanks for your interest, Shellianne!

 

Here is where I’m going for surgery:

I’m now in Bangkok, but I have to spend two weeks in quarantine first. Surgery is scheduled for the middle of the month. I had GRS in Japan last February, but wonder if I should have come here for that. I plan to ask the doctor to check out below just for his opinion, but I’m not going to say anything before my scheduled surgeries.

 Thank you very much! (Call me "Shelly" by the way! :))

 

I am following your topic and will wait for good news! Hope that everything will be better than great for you! Wish you fast recovery and satisfactory results! :)

Update: Well, I am now on the final day of my two-week quarantine. Tomorrow, I check out of my hotel and then head to the hospital. Tomorrow will be our consultation, and surgery will be the day after that. Needless to say, I'm very excited but also quite nervous. Being here completely on my own doesn't help, of course.

I’m having a tough time, but I’m hanging in there. I’ll write more later.6FD63600-24BC-4EE3-BDEB-2068894BF3C6.thumb.jpeg.78cec3c307786735cfdcd2263241ab15.jpeg

Do what the doctors say. Relax. Feel better. May the results be all you were hoping for and more besides!

@Kasumi63 I hope you’re feeling a little more improved every day…a step closer to redefining you!

 

Get Well Soon,

Thanks, Jackie and Susan! I am now in a hotel and feeling a little bit better. Part of the struggle has been being alone overseas during the COVID-19 pandemic. After the surgery I had some struggle breathing and that sent me into a panic, which only made things worse. Since arriving here in Thailand, I spent two weeks in quarantine and have several PCR tests, so it’s highly unlikely that I’m infected. 
 

Anyway, I’m now in a hotel room recovering on my own. Tomorrow I’m scheduled to have all my bandages removed. That’s a big step. My face and head still hurts, but the swelling has gone down quite a bit. Now it’s just a struggle to get through each day. One day at a time.

 

It’s nice that I can contact the clinic easily, and they immediately reply. Staying calm and friendly goes a long way here in Thailand, and my interactions with them has been pretty positive. 
 

Still, I’m anxious to get home to Japan. With emergency measures in place, it’s bound to be a stressful trip back, but it’s much more relaxing entering your own country, and there’s no way I can be refused entry. The main issue is whether I’ll have quarantine after entry. 
 

I guess I was a bit crazy to get such a major surgery done at this time. But I have been tired of waiting.

Not at all. My only regret about surgery is that I didn't do it sooner. You knew what you needed and you made it happen. You did it safely. You got through it. Now you're going home. Mission successful!

 

Hugs!

Update: 

Well, I didn’t have any trouble getting into Japan, of course, but I did have to do another two-week quarantine. Just two more days! Can’t wait to get home!

 

So my thoughts about my surgery? Overall, I’m pleased, especially about the breast augmentation. However, it’s harder to tell with the facial feminization surgery. Breasts look great and the results are obvious, but I gather it takes time for the results of the face to settle in, so it’s hard to judge. I had a lot done on my face, but the changes are subtle, and there’s still a bit of swelling. I’ve read that a full recovery (in the sense of final results becoming obvious) takes a year, so I guess that’s normal. I’m not disappointed or anything, but I thought results would be a bit more obvious. 
 

Mainly, I’m just anxious to get home, where I’ll be able to eat my own food, see friends, exercise, and get back to work. Oh, and get some new bras and clothes!! Can’t wait to go shopping!

 

Thanks again for the support. Over the past month and a half, I only had one single day of crisis, so overall, everything went pretty well.

I hear that Thai surgeons are among the best in the world for many types of surgeries.

I think it will take some time for swelling to go down and scars to heal, but here I am today:

You look fabulous @Kasumi63. You have such a calm and peaceful demeanor for someone who has been through so much in a relatively short time. It appears like everything was a wonderful success. I wish you the best on the road to full recovery.

 

Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

      I'm ADD, so my mind just ping-pongs around anywhere and everwhere. 😁   Although sometimes it'll fixate on old experience-based frustratuons of trying and failing to get my point across to someone not willing to listen, or otherwise dealing with difficult people. Or any other frustration I may have.

      I read a good chunk of it before deciding to scroll down to so how much further it would go on...then I gave up because I just don't have that kinda time LOL. Thanks for sharing though! Looks like an interesting read; I'll probably get to it in the future at some point.  From what I read though, it seemed to basically be saying the same thing I was saying, but with slightly more smarty-pantsy biologery sounding words thrown into the mix lol. Seems they were saying that the differences in the brain were the result of hormonal, environmental and cultural factors. The relative sizes between a male and female brain seems negligible because I'm pretty sure I heard that the size of a brain doesn't necessarily determine how it functions. Not to mention all the crap that can happen that can radically alter various regions of the brain, particularly trauma and abuse. Some ciswomen have a large amygdala, some ciswomen have a small amygdala. Twenty bucks says that either way...it was their parents fault. 🤣

      In 1912, a law passed in Nebraska where drivers in the country at night were required to stop every 150 yards, send up a skyrocket, and wait eight minutes for the road to clear before proceeding cautiously, all the while blowing their horn and shooting off flares.   Somali pirates have such a hatred for Western culture, that the British Navy uses music from Britney Spears to scare them off.   Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Captain Horatio Magellan Crunch.   The chicken and the ostrich are the closest living relatives of the Tyrannosaurus rex.

      Yea she's nosy. She could probably tell you everything going on in the neighborhood.    Yea my grandma asked why I went through planned parent hood. I told her way to munch gatekeeping, and cost at a regular dr. I told her my labs are like 100 bucks, and she was like I pay around 300 after insurance.

      Geez, under different circumstances that could have been disastrous. Life is so strange. What a blessing it turned out to be an opportunity to glean that understanding and acceptance from your grandmother.

      There were two monarch butterfly chrysalises in the garden I'd been keeping an eye on because they were anchored on leafs that were liable to fall before the butterflies hatched. I looked out the window this morning literally just at the moment one of the leaves fell! I ran out to rescue the chrysalis and found the butterfly had hatched just before the leaf fell off and was crawling on the ground. Monarchs need to hang dry for a few hours before they can fly. This sweetie readily crawled onto my finger and let me take him to a bush to hang. The 2nd picture is the other monarch chrysalis I'm still keeping an eye on. It looks like a fancy piece of jewelry to me. The 3rd bonus picture is a cute atala butterfly enjoying some nectar breakfast.
