I was her patient in her 980's as far as GCS goes.  She has also done loads of work helping women whose genitals were mutilated for cultural reasons in the middle east.

A remarkable woman and skilled surgeon.  If I were having GCS done I would choose her.  Thanks for posting, Vicky.

I checked her site as I've known about her for years but if I read it correctly they want $1000 down before consulting... I'm just making contacts and setting up appointments to find out availability, checklist of items I still need to do and document, including hair removal in the nether regions and how long before surgery that needs to be completed, etc. and see what each doctor requires. I am only contacting those doctor I am aware of with sparkling reputations or ones you ladies are recommending.

Thank You

What was referred to as "Female circumcision" was also done in a few ethnic communities here in the U.S. as well sad to say.  The one positive thing the reconstruction team found was that the mutilation was extremely superficial and the deeper nerve structure was intact and functional once the surface scar tissue was removed and healthy skin grafted in place.

amazing and so caring and comforting ... I did contact her and asked about availability to talk but not commit the $1000 up front explaining I am nearly 1 year away and am fact gathering. Dr. Kathy Rumer's office called today and I have information from her assistants and will be calling back 2 months from now after some of my homework has been completed.

 

By the way - if anyone is interested - Dr. Rumer's schedule is currently a wait of about 6 months for bottom surgery and a little more for top surgery...

      Thanks @Shay and let's not forget @Dev who took the site over from Laura and brought it up to the current standard! But the real heroes are you all, our members who give your support to everyone who comes lookig for help.

      @Jandi writing is a creative art that is generally done alone. May I suggest warming up with music you love or look up websites that publish Good news stories and turn off the world outside and enjoy your inside. Not every song I write is good but just the practice is enjoyable. Remember all great writers will say...if you want to be a writer then you have to write...that is how you get better. Perhaps check in on Coursera it is free and wonderful courses to help more knowledge to your ideas. My favorite is Pat Pattison at Berklee he as a great course on poetry and lyric?writing. Although I have written for over 45 years he gave me some concepts I had not heard before and I have added them to my writing tool kit.

      Modesty... Seems to be a common trait here and I love all of you for it.

      My parents think I've been brainwashed into thinking I'm transgender and they think Asperger's caused me to be brainwashed. I haven't said anything to them about how it's more common for people on the autistic spectrum to be transgender because they'll probably interpret that as evidence that those on the autistic spectrum are easily brainwashed. Also, I've noticed a lot of LGB (in addition to trans) people on autism related forums, especially a lot of lesbians.

      I like to write.  Sometimes stories, sometimes poems. Lately being stuck at home by myself I've been kinda depressed, and it's surprisingly hard to get motivated.  That seems weird considering I have lots of time on my hands.  But I've been trying to do better with mixed results.

      I have also heard that Transfolks have a higher percentage of being dyslexic.   Dyslexia is more than simply mixing up "b" & "d".   (which I only found out lately, and explains a lot about myself).  It can also involve remembering numbers, (like phone numbers - I've had to write mine down at times so I wouldn't forget it) or spelling can be a big problem - just to name a couple.   Just thought I'd mention it.

      Scuba and specifically underwater photography.  If I could live underwater I would. My long term plan is to get to the point where I can spend 6 months a year in Bonaire do it.

      oh and I can even talk nonsense about video games thus combining the two together.
    • MaryMary
      Hi, I'm an expert at both talking nonsense and video games. I can do both of these for an infinite amount of time so my guess is that you are at the right place. Welcome, it's a pleasure meeting you virutally
    • ThatDarnDodo
      Productivity? Never heard of her. 
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sasha.  I won't be much fun to talk video games with, but I can manage some General Nonsense.  😆  Please look around and post where you like, and if you have questions, we're good for that, too.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you, Shay.  We have a wonderful team here, and actually, I feel it's more akin to a family.  But its all the members, past and present, who make this place truly special.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      @Robin  You've mentioned that previously.  Thanks for the photo, so cool.  I understand Geddy Lee is a big collector of Negro League Baseball memorabilia.  Neil Young is into train sets. I remember when he joined a group to buy Lionel when they were in trouble years ago.
