Hi Julie,                          20 March 2019

Go for it; in my opinion you will be happy ever after. I couldn't wait to get on the table and have those nasty things removed; I even climbed on the table by myself.

Best Always, Love

I need SRS, I can't live with that repulsive nonsense, if I can't I'll shoot myself in the head, not even joking

Is there a chance you already voted? Is there a "Remove vote" button visible?

For me, GCS is a very important piece of transition - I have wanted GCS as long as I’ve known about it (about 23 years).

I’ll probably want FFS but that’s more cosmetic, not as fundamentally important as GCS.

Hi Folks,                                             21 March 2019

I didn't vote the first time I posted here so I did this time.

At my age (79 this year) I need a complete overhaul. That would require too many hours under General Anesthesia; I'd be dead or totally useless before they were done. I have no desire to be a corpse,  beautiful or otherwise.

I've reconciled myself to having a cosmetic bottom job for two reasons: I am not attracted to men and even if I were, I'm too old to have intimate relations with them. Once upon a time I was a male, let's just say I'm glad he's history. I never want him to return, don't like being reminded of him and am doing what I can to remove him from my life.

Thankfully, I found Susan's Place and the Love of My Life. If you add up what happiness I had in my first 77 years of life, it wouldn't amount to a trickle of what it is today Thanks to Dena. Just for the record, she has saved my life three times. She is my Guardian Angel. I Love Her with All MY Heart And Soul. Thank You Dear!

Best Always, Love

I don't think I really need any surgery. I would like a Small BA and maybe an orchie in the future.
I think the big surgery is still so flawed and I have heard scary stories D:

Christine,

  Thanks for the support.  I'm like you, I'll climb aboard ASAP to get it done.  I may not stop there and go for it all but for now at least have that done.

Take care,

Julie

I have my orchi now well behind me.  But even though they removed most of my scrotum along with the testes, I did not get the psychological result I was hoping for, my genital dysphoria is not cured at all.  Now I try to get SRS done as soon as possible. I am not interspersed in a functional vagina, for the same reason Christine stated, but just the limited depth vulvopalsti with a clitoris.
That will be the only surgery left for me.  I don't need any facial stuff or bigger boobs, and don't a hair transplant either, just that SRS and be over with it!

I only want an orchiectomy. Let the pieces fall where they fall for the rest of me. I just hope for the best. Maybe the universe will be nice to me.

i want to have gcs and some ffs surgery next year. as far as my voice goes, i might have to have voice surgery but i have been told i might just need voice training. i can already sing really high notes. I might also have to have breast augmentation cause my left one is bigger that the right due to left side shoulder surgery along time ago and i want my chest even. thats my 2 cents worth. Hugs all

I thought that the pretty radical orchi I had would be enough for me, but it sure is not!  It somehow made my genital dysphoria worse, and not better!  i seem to have a screwed up brain, too and not only a screwed up body!

I hope you have a better outcome!
