Orchiectomy

Recommended Posts

😃💃 I had my surgery today (orchiectomy). So far🤞 Things went well. I have been so nervous about saying anything for fear something would happen and I not get it. But I did so am happy and relieved. As an added bonus we stopped at a gas station for rest room stop the clerk said are you looking for the restroom I said yes he said second door on the right, this was the women’s I would not have passed me but it sure made my day.💃

congrats.  As someone who has had half a orchiectomy, I know what you are going through and the recovery time is at least short.  Well for me anyways my recovery was only 2 weeks.  But let me explain why I said that I have had half orchiectomy, I am a 11 year cancer survivor and I have had testicular cancer so I have only had 1 of the 2 removed.  This was mandatory for me since I was fighting cancer to get rid of the 1 infected one.  So as I tell people, I only have had half a orchiectomy

Congratulations Rachael.  Having had the same surgery i know that feeling of relief when it was finally in the past.  Due to heart problems i was always afraid it wouldn't be allowed. The healing was early quick.   Getting off of blockers has been great and the "look" of things down there has certainly improved.

 

Hugs,

Still a little sore but doing well. 

Charlize, I was worried they would not let me get the orchectomy as I have had blood clots and 3 stints put in. So far so good and being able to drop the spiro was a top priority. 

Thanks everyone💃

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!
    • VickySGV
      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved. 
    • Ellora
      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy

      I am not sure it is all post transition. I remember a friend joking at a party we were at that I was typically like a woman and taking so long in the loo. On reading a national newspaper here today I did notice an article about there being loads more bacteria in a mens facillity than a womens - surprise surprise lol. The main thing I miss about going in the wild (apart from beware of nettles etc) is that it is less easy to see approaching embarrasment, being low down in the undergrowth.   My visits to the hairdresser are very similar pricewise. She is not upmarket either is styles or price but I love the local meeting / gossip. I suppose the thing I don't miss is the (often) doctors surgery atmosphere of a barbers rather than chatty hairdressers.   Tracy
