Maddie, how are you making out? How was the meeting with the doctor to write a letter for you? How are you recovering from FFS?

Hi.
I’m doing ok!  It’s been 4 weeks.
I had a lot of work on my face and body.  Wanting my lymphatic system to kick back in.  Trying to get as recovered as I can before my next huge step on March 7th.

The Zukowski Center  (and the Dr!) have been great.  Communication, reassurances, support.  I send a new set of photos  to my Dr each week.  So far he says I’m dong great.

My daily recovery is still wearing a head wrap garment and a special bra. 
3x per day I aggressively massage my surgical areas and incisions.
I continue to take acetaminophen and ibuprofen. 
Keeping areas clean, sleeping elevated, and avoiding salty food.


A referral to a referral to a referral got me to a virtual appt with a phd psychologist who submitted a letter in my behalf for my next stage: peritoneal vaginoplasty at Indiana University Health with Drs Roth and Koch.  In three weeks.  Closer than  preferred...

My insurance company approved so its a go ahead. 

I have concerns, but this whole transition runs on faith for me. 
Walking through this I am not alone. 
I will be ok.

Maddie,

Congratulations on the referral. I am looking forwards to hearing about what they say about peritoneal vaginoplasty. I had MDV GCS last year and wondering if that will work for me if I decide I want a full depth vaganal canal.

Thank you Ellen.  My surgery is in less than 20 days.  My consult there was a year ago.  This letter was not a referral, it’s a mental health readiness thing I was scrambling for, due to a last minute change in my insurance cos letter requirements.  They had already approved the surgery prior with my old letters, then they denied it.  Now they have reapproved it, so its a go.

If you or anyone have any questions about what this surgeon and hospital have told me regarding the peritoneal vaginoplasty,  please post back or private message me.

Hi.

Just want to say that people on this forum have helped me a lot.

I’ve been going through surgeries and having some emotional times.
