What I Needed for Recovering from FtM Chest Surgery
I thought I would compile a list of the things I needed during the initial recovery from my chest surgery. I had a double incision subcutaneous mastectomy with nipple grafts and male chest contouring on December 14th 2015. These are the things I used for the first week or so.
Medical & Toiletries
Latex Gloves for emptying the drains
Gravol for the ride home
Extra Strength Tylenol
Gauze to re-dress the nipples
Medical tape to re-dress the nipples
Deodorant wipes since getting deodorant on wasn’t possible at first
Benadryl due to being really itchy
Food & Drink
Chicken and Veggie Soup
Perogies (it was really easy to have them fed to me)
WHEN SOMEONE TELLS ME ‘I’M GAY’ I ALWAYS THINK TO MYSELF 'SO THE HECK WHAT?’. SO YOU’RE GAY. SO AM I. I AM ALSO MALE AND OF SCOTTISH/IRISH/SPANISH DESCENT. I AM OLD. I AM SICK. I LIKE PEROGIES. I LOVE GOOD MUSIC (A THING OF THE PAST NOW, UNFORTUNATELY). I HAVE A PULLED MUSCLE IN MY BACK WHICH WON’T SUBSIDE. I LIKE BAY RUM AFTER SHAVE LOTION. I LOVE RABBITS AND HARES. THE COLORS OF THE FOREST, THE DEEP BROWNS OF THE TREE TRUNKS AND THE DARK GREENS OF THE LEAVES, ARE FAVORITES. I MISS HAVING MY MISOSHIRU SOUP BECAUSE AM NOW FORBIDDEN SALT IN MY DIET. I THINK THAT COPENHAGEN IS AN EARTHLY PARADISE. I AM A PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL WHO BELIEVES IN DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM, BUT ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE UNREMARKABLE AND QUITE ORDINARY. I ADVERTISE THEM NOW ONLY TO MAKE MY POINT, WHICH IS “SO THE HECK WHAT?.
