Post Orchi and no sore Boobs?

Recommended Posts

ShawnaLeigh

So this was totally unexpected. 

My breast growth seems to of stopped, shut down, no sore breast once the surgery for my Orchi was completed.  I mean sore the day of and nothing afterwards.  I expected with the natural source of "T" gone they would go into hyper drive but instead it appears to be zero soreness hence no growth.

Is this normal?

 

Disclaimer: yes I will ask my doctors of course but just wanted to hear if this has occurred with others who have had this surgery.

Give it a minute. It took mine about three months to get sore again. Now they're REALLY sore.

 

You still have some T though. Your adrenal glands produce it. Just like in a cis-female or maybe a little less depending on your own biological quirks.

B++? In 26 months I have a respectable A+...I can only dream. 
I am seriously considering an Orchi. Recently had a minor, minor stroke, but it was enough that my endro is considering taking me off HRT. To be honest, if it is a choice between the hormones and a stroke, I‘ll take the stroke. I am 70 and I am finally able to not only like myself but love who I have become and to go back is not acceptable.

With an Orchi I can reduce my estrogen and not lose any ground I have gained in feminization. I really don’t need those pesky gonads. I am even considering a vulvoplasty to further feminize my body.

I had a scare a few weeks ago. The soreness was gone for a bit. I posted about it in the mtf thread. I was worried the growth stopped. But a couple days later the soreness and tightness was back with a vengeance. It comes and goes in waves I guess.

After being on estrogen for a while your body will go into a grow-rest-grow-rest mode until its done.  Don't fret.

Hi,

i started T blocker on Jan 14, 2020. I then started <removed> until June 26, 2020. I had my orchiectomy that day. I stopped cassodex the day before ( i was on that <removed> to suppress T) and nothing has been the same since. I am crying easily at like nothing things that are all of a sudden filled with emotional significance. I had some serious deeply embedded emotional "things" breakloose and surface that therapy has been helping to dislodge. Besides that I feel fantastic for the most part. My Boobs seem to have gotten twice as fulll overnight, nipples and areola larger,smoother and softer and more sensitive. And buds just ache like a toothache, not bad but sore and constant. It is incredible to wear cute panties without those ugly things popping out. and I sleep the night through without waking up ten times to pee. I do feel very different, that is for sure.

      OK so I'm not doing HRT yet and I have a question. I'm just starting out transitioning and I want to start HRT as soon as I can. Today I told one of my many doctors that I'm trans and he was so supportive and told me he was proud of me and said if I needed anything to just ask. Now I have to tell my primary and see if he is comfortable treating a trans woman. If not I'm going to have to find a new doctor.   My question is about sexual orientation and if you switch because of the female hormones? Right now I like women but will after being on hormones for say a year, will I start liking men. I wouldn't care because we like who we're interested in, I'm just curious what happens and has anyone switched from one to the other. Hugs Girls Holly!

      That drives me nuts cleaning grease out. Not having to take a bath in gear or hydraulic oil would be nice to haha. I would miss the company truck though

      When i  was a younger person i was totally unable to accept myself.  Much of that was due to the climate at that time.  There simply were no trans folks around.  If i had a chance to dress i couldn't look at my face in the mirror.  Maybe a skirt, my legs or chest (augmented) could pass but i saw a guy in the mirror.  HRT has helped but more importantly was a growth confidence.  As Jackie mentioned confidence took a great deal of time.  I got wigs and finally went outside, scared to death.  I lived with that fear most of my life.  Just as you describe i was depressed but once i found this site found support and really started to try i somehow slowly have lost that fear.  It wasn't an easy journey.  No magic pills like in my dreams, but one little step at a time has given me peace. Hang in there.  It gets better   Hugs,   Charlize

      We'll have to work on that.  In the meantime, click on the Transpulse link at the left side in the green bar.  Look for Resources and there they are.     Jani

      Congrats, Tory!  (Love the name, btw 😁) Finally making those first steps of progress does feel SO good, doesn't it?  With practice, those needles become easier, too.  I know, I've been known to almost black out from shots and I did black out a few minutes when I got my ears pierced.  Despite working in a hospital for years (in I.T.), I've been terrified of needles and anything medical my whole life.  I was that kid that used to scream, cry and try to run away.  I am so sensitive to pain, I swear I can feel a needle inside my veins, which isn't really possible, but it makes my stomach flip.  Being fairly healthy I've escaped any "medical assaults" until I started HRT.  It's critically important to monitor your chem levels throughout the process, so hang in there, it really does get better.   A couple of tips from experience... one, don't be afraid of telling them about your fear/anxiety.  I was so embarrassed to tell them but found they are very understanding and will usually thank you for warning them, because you are not the only one.  They've had patients pass out, so they would much rather know ahead of time.  Two, if they're not already using them, ask the blood drawer to use a "butterfly".  The needle is so short/tiny you can barely feel it and it doesn't move around while they're drawing.   Recent experience with a blood disorder which requires that I get frequent phlebotomies brought on a whole new level of fear.  This is similar to donating blood and uses a larger needle so they can capture the larger blood cells.  When they first told me about it, I was absolutely terrified!  I seriously didn't think I could do it, but my life depended on it.  So, I told the phlebotomist I might pass out and then used distraction techniques like you mentioned.  It really hurt at first but eased up after they got the needle in and settled for about 15 minutes while a pint drained out.  Each time I've had one since, it got easier and easier until now (after a dozen or so), believe it or not, I can do it without any anxiety at all.  The experienced nurses/technicians are SO good at what they do!  The great thing is that after I got used to that big needle, I don't even feel the little ones anymore!  So, to anyone with the needle fear, I now recommend donating blood as a [courageous] way to resolve the problem.   For HRT, I would suggest you ask for estradiol tabs that you can dissolve under your tongue.  I still don't think I could give myself shots, especially into the muscle.  Good luck with your therapy.  In a couple of months you're going to start feeling much more like "yourself".

      Thank you - does it sound sort of like early Kansas to you?
    • Shay
      aha... I was also the person who wrote procedures for ISO and gage calibration traceable to NIST....   I definitely can believe it - I would suspect comparing general population and trans that the trans have a higher density of left handedness than the general population. I guess that's why a lot of us come from a creative background. That to would be an interesting study comparing trans creative backgrounds (music, art, theatre, quilting, knitting sewing, crafts, etc.) to the general population. I would guess the percentage would also be higher for trans.

      Yep, similar.  Green belt and am currently a fraud and security analyst as part of my job. I am constantly buried in data and I love it. Found one study, behind a paywall ; however, the abstract makes mention of: Numerous studies demonstrate that male-to-female (MTF) transgender people have higher rates of left-handedness, but the theoretical basis for this difference is not well described. 
    • Shay
      I come from an Industrial Engineering, statistics, 6 sigma, Green Belt background... sounds like you have a similar statistics and data background or interest. Certainly need larger samples and I'm sure the confidence level on our study is not very good. It was just interesting and I have heard about the studies you refer to.    What I would really find interesting (and there probably is one) - a study of transpeople and handedness compared to handedness of the major binary genders and maybe handedness of intersex and all the other gender categories.
    • SaraAW
      Too bad we didn't get more respondents, difficult to really draw any conclusions from the sample size, the fact it was sourced from here only and self-reported. Still, definitely interesting. Does not reflect the larger populations distribution of handedness by a very large margin. There is still so much we don't know in regards to the origins of handedness. it would be interesting if a larger study were conducted and if it would provide any additional insight to how / why handedness develops. There are a couple of studies showing exposure in utero to a particular synthetic estrogen used in the 50's to early 70's increased prevalence of left-handedness. There are studies also showing that exposure to androgens in utero may have a small impact to gender. To me, there is something to explore here to see if there is any correlation between being trans and handedness.

      Congratulations, Ronin! Glad that you’re happy with your progress. More good things to come! *And isn’t it great that you can choose your chosen family?

      Today is pop and rock reimagined in funk, swing and big band. A mix of Postmodern Jukebox, Scary Pockets and some other bands.
    • Shay
      That is excellent news - I will be listening this weekend. I remember meeting Rich Williams at the University of Toledo when they had 1 album out and they were opening for Queen. My band Silverhorse released a single called WEARINESS in late 1979 and WMMS in Cleveland kept playing our song and Carry On My Wayward Son back to back saying we sounded like Kansas. I thought that was weird being we had no keyboards or violin... but I'm happy people seemed to like us. Too bad the band imploded just before we signed with Atlantic Records - but that's another story. For now I'm including our song Weariness - let me know if you think there is any resemblance. weariness.mp3
