24 Hours...here it goes! GCS Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

So it is the day prior to my GCS. Being 1,300 miles away from home and finishing up my quarantine. Today I have my pre-operative appoint and then my anesthetic evaluation short thereafter. Then it is back to my hotel for the dreaded bowel prep, maybe I will drop a size or two and lose the bloating I have been experiencing the last bit.

 

So, this begins my thread on which I will update. Let the day begin!

Hey all. 
 

Surgery went fantastic. I’m back at my hotel room. Having some discomfort. But medications are helping so much! Surgeon and the team were excited because not having much swelling at all. Just lots of bruising. 
 

Thank you all for the posts.

Woo-hoo!  Congratulations, @Kylie!  I am glad to hear that you are feeling mostly good.  Rest, take it easy, and do everything your surgeon tells you to do.

Thanks all! Did get out bed briefly last night to make some adjustments to the way I was sleeping, the pain became very sharp and unbearable and I did faint. Thankfully I feel back o n the bed. When I woke up my best friend was so confused!

 

Just trying to stay strict with all the medications. Swelling isn’t too bad. Bruised significantly. Will keep updating!

Does EVERYBODY else get to go for walkies? They kept me flat on my back for three days!

 

Of course you passed out. That might be WHY they kept me in bed for three days.

 

I'm glad you're feeling better sweetie. Take your pain meds. Follow your surgeon's instructions and get better.

 

Also don't sit on the surgical site if you can at all avoid it. Ow. ?

 

Hugs!

@Kylie - I am so happy for you - you look gorgeous and soon should feel gorgeous and wait until your cat sees you.... it will be a lick fest.

Ha! @Jackie C. I was able to get up this morning and move around and felt much better than yesterday. Other than those few times I’ve just been chilling in bed all comfy with my pillows, ice packs and meds!

Pretty much a dull pain that doesn’t want to go away. But I’ll keep everyone posted ☺️

      Some of us have started the transition when we were very young and had the surgery also at a young age, and not after a man was married to woman ( one or two times) and also having children and grandchildren,then he decides to transition at age 60+...   Face, hands, body, voice etc... were not developed  yet to become as a man and with the hormones, our body fully changed to that woman you see  and admire.  Myself included and many other ladies that I know, have not touched our face surgically ( feminization). Later in life, we may have went under the knife to perhaps have “the French beauty” ( Bardot, Gabor, Lauren etc).   Thats my answer to the OP and Shay dear, we are not fake, that was bold for you to say that!

      I'm listening to all my Mac Davis downloadeds because he set the tone for my teenage years.

      Let me know if you need a co or partner usually on around 10 est most days

      Being like us is not easy and it takes all of us to support us - when you're down look here and you'll find someone to help - when you're up do the same for another one of us who is down. BOTH will make you feel better. Hug

      Well I finally got both responses in.   I feel like my mom gave her usual unconditional love statement, however, she is really nervous I can tell about the idea of me transitioning and what it means for me. I know it comes from a place of love, it just a thing where I am not worried about it because if I am not me, how can I be happy. So I think there is some work there that is going to have to take place.   My dad says he understands how this has probably tormented me for so long. He sounds very supportive and is being kind of inquisitive with me. He has kind of stepped on a few land mines (some questions that I right now just gloss over). I think he will be supportive of the transition.   Now that the first round is done, I think it is time to reflect and decide on when to execute the next round. I feel like it may be difficult to talk to my brothers about it, though one is estranged on his accord.

      happy Birthday Kathy!

      Lately… Depressed and Drained.   Guess a bit like waiting for the other shoe to drop, but stubbornly holding on.

      I'm probably not one of the best people to take advice from, I also struggle with self harm. My first time trying was in fourth grade, with a piece of plastic that came off my hand-me-down binder. I hurt myself on and off all through school just because I liked feeling pain I inflicted. But I got sloppy and when I got caught I tried to blame it on the neighborhood dogs and then I hid in the room I shared with my sister and one by one everyone in my family came in to talk to me. My sister cried and showed me hers and told me never to do it again because she'd kill me if she saw new ones. My father told me there were other ways to get attention, like asking for it and my mother... she just cried and hugged me and asked how she could make me better.  There will always be people who will not understand, like my father, and there will always be someone who just wants to help you. Even if they are not blood related, you are not alone and you will not be in trouble. Even if they have an angry reaction like my sister, it's just because they didn't realize it sooner and that makes them upset, because "they could've helped."  If you're looking for a reason to come out about it think about them because they will remember every instance where they thought there might be something wrong and they didn't ask and now they're upset because they didn't.    Sorry if that doesn't make sense, I think I got a little ramble-y at the end there. If you need someone to talk to let me know.    Warmly, K

      I couldn't agree more. ❤️

      @JK and @Abi - Digging back into old feeling, identifying them and releasing them - each time the pain will last a shorter time until they mostly disappear from your life.
    • Shay
      At least you know what you are feeling and knowledge is power to accept and disarm quicker. When I figured out what triggered my anxiety attacks and depression - just knowing what it was released the length of suffering immensely. Hang in there @Abi you are loved by more people than you know.
