Excitedly Nervous....
« on: April 12, 2021, 02:53:15 pm »
I meet with my doctor on the 22nd to get the determination on my orchi request. I truly hope to have the letter in hand and then work with the insurance company plus the referral. I was thinking of the Meltzer Clinic because they will hopefully be the surgeons for my vaginoplasty. They are local to me. I am also looking forward to not needed t-blockers.

I am counting the days...

Dear Becky:
These are certainly the bigger steps in your transition journey...   
Yes indeed, no more T-Blockers and and planning  upcoming vaginoplasty.

For sure, "excitedly nervous," I fully understand what you are feeling.
The good news is that your surgeon is local to you... makes things much easier.

Thank you for sharing and posting....
I am wishing you well... and success and happiness as you continue on.


HUGS and more HUGS,
Danielle

Good luck Becky!

Dr. Ley at the Meltzer Clinic performed all of my surgeries except my trachea shave. She does awesome work! I'm sure you would be happy with Dr. Meltzer too!!!

Love always -- Jessica Rose

I got the approval to move ahead with the Orchi. My doctor said to have the surgeon reach out and she would provide the letter. Next step is to schedule the consultation and hopefully schedule a date. The Meltzer clinic has validated my insurance and I should be good to go - theoretically. I say 'theoretically' because has actually been easier than I thought? SSShhh... I down want to jinx it. I need to take a chill pill. ;D

I hope that it will go very, very, very well!

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I am hoping for the July timeframe. I first need to schedule the consultation and go from there. I have also decided to go with some body sculpting and the fat transfer BA. (I will definitely post before and after pictures). The procedures will be on May 24th and June 7th. I was very impressed with my consultation and technology. I have decided to go that route first. I will have a more feminine body. I struggle with not having a positive female body image.

I met with Dr. Ley at the Meltzer Clinic and I must say I was impressed. Not only with Dr. Ley but with the support staff - all the way from the receptionist to the nurses and patient coordinator. I received the information regarding the Orchi, Vaginoplasty and the FFS I am looking for. I also received the quote for the FFS. All in all it was a pleasant experience and discussion. The ball is now in my court. I will need my letters to keep the insurance company happy and I meet with my therapist this Friday and I will proceed with the process for the Orchi. My path will be Orchi, FFS and the Vaginoplasty which I anticipate is 9 to 12 months out which is ok with me.
