Everything is in place for my Orchi and scrotectomy.  Can't wait to be gone with them.

How brilliant Davita.

When I awoke from my surgery the first words I shouted were, 'YES! I LOVE THAILAND!'  :D

(From which you'll realise I had it done out there!)

Davita,

Great for you.  I got what I wanted: a better tuck and no more SPIRO!!!!  The benefits I received from stopping Spiro really had nothing to do with my being Trans.  I was dealing with another issue down their and needed surgery to correct it.  I just asked the urologist, "Doc, while you are down their could you just .....?"  He said, "No problem!" and the rest is past history.  The combined process, including the no more spiro, greatly improved my daily quality of life.

My only fear is not being able to exercise. I love riding my bicycle and it's probably going to be weeks before I can get back on the saddle.  I fear gaining weight in which I work so hard to keep off.

      Plus on top of that, I'm going back in for my facelift revision on Sept 22nd. That will set me back on my exercise regimen as well. :-\

I had my orchidectomy in my 50's and I was walking within days then doing some upper body workouts in c. 2 weeks and running/cycling in a handful of weeks. As I recall it was around 4 to 5 weeks when I felt up to going from walks to the above.

Facial surgery really knocked the stuffing out of me but I think, again, I was running in 4-5 weeks.

Good luck with it. The time will pass quickly and you'll soon lose the weight.

10 days and counting. I'm curious as to coming off spiro. Will I gain a little more energy? I hoping I'll finally get a good nights sleep without having to get up every 3 hours to pee. I'm usually up at 5am but by 7pm I'm exhausted. I hoping a good nights sleep will help. Can someone share how you felt coming off the spiro?

Looks like only 2 days to go for you now, good luck

Got an email from my Dutch urologist today saying they have to check everyone's holidays this week so they can schedule appointments, so hopefully not going to be long until I catch you up

The hospital called and said I need to be there at 10am tomorrow morning.  Wish me luck girls and I'll see you on the other side. ;)
