5 days post op

2

And then came surgery…..I had a glansplasty because it did not hold the first time (phalloplasty performed on June 24, 2015). The below picture is where skin was taken in order to build the graft. And below that is my mummy phallus coming out of surgery, all happy, and bandaged up! 

Shown below: At 3 days post op, I attempted to change the dressings and xeroform. The xeroform was so stuck to the ridge or the new glands, then we called the doc and he told us we could leave it on until day 5 post op! So pretty soon, I will have pre and post glansplasty photos! 

2 days post Op: Key hole with Dr. Ereso $5,800
super stoked about how it all looks, couldn’t really see all of it but it was very emotional to see my chest this flat. He said he pumped a bunch of liquid in my chest so that will go down with a couple weeks. So blessed to have this chest, thank you to everyone who has came out to support me and visit me. On heavy meds because the first set of meds didn’t take any of the pain away. We are trying something new so let’s see how it goes! Im also get my new binder on Thursday because they ordered the wrong one and size, so I’m looking forward to that. Today’s pain was the worst so far, but Dr. Ereso said next week I will be feeling and looking a lot better. So grateful to have so many amazing people here for me 💙👏🙌👨🙏😘👌

5 days post-op today and I’m itching like nobody’s business. I am also really sore in the middle of of my chest and on each side where my stitches are, which I suppose is to be expected. Nothing unbearable though!
Had some nausea and dizziness yesterday but that’s probably because I overexerted myself, so I am making sure I rest up today.
Can’t wait for these stitches to come out next week! Otherwise, I’m healing well :)

The ginger and white photo bombing mound of fur to my right is the new kitty we adopted. His name is Pickles…for now anyway. 

Here we go, first (almost completely) chest reveal! Today is 5 days post op. I’m more than pleased with the results and look forward to seeing how I heal. I had an “oh shit” moment earlier today because I thought I had forgotten to put on my binder and then realized it was okay. The marker isn’t going away for a while, but that’ll come with time. Thanks everyone for the continual support, it’s always very much appreciated!! I’ll continue to put up pictures once I can take off the remaining bandages.
