Hiee Steph,

  As you live in Ontario have you considered getting a 'Transexual' orchiectomy. I had mine performed here in Nova Scotia as an irreversable transexual surgory and neither the surgeon nor my personal doctor had any problems with filling in the forms required by the Ontario Registry stating that my gender should be changed. There was a time long ago when SRS was considered the sex change but only due to the fact that an orchie was a required part of the surgory. Now days many are getting orchies to save on drug costs and have a safer HRT without having to take an AA. Just food for thought if you'd really like to have the gender marker changed.

Hiee cbenoit,

  I had an orchie earlier this year May 06 and afterwards had some major problems with nausea and vomitting. To the point where I was actually dibilitated for awhile. At one point I experienced  some major hair loss ie it was coming out in handfulls when taking a shower and washing it. It lasted maybe a week or two. It has not repeated itself. I'm not sure but think it had to do with the sudden loss of the little T my body was producing and a sudden over abundance of Estrogen. I've since cut my Estradiol back and think that my body is begining to adjust, but may have to cut the Estradiol back as my Estradiol blood serum levels have risen considerably. My last lab work had the levels at 852 pmol / L which was a really big jump from the previous one and I think they will likely be well over 1000 pmol / L with my next lab work to be done in December. I hope maybe this has been of some help in some way.

Byee,

Steph already has SRS schedule in under a month.  She wrote that post back in September 2005.

  Luckily enough for my roomie, one of the few dates Dr. Brassard had open was her actual birthday and so her "natural birthday" and her "new birthday" are the same day :) . He even sang her "Happy Birthday" before they put her to sleep.

 

  Brina...where in Nova Scotia do you live?  My moms family is there and I was curious...beautiful area.

hello Brina.

Thanks for the information it is appreciated.  At one time I had considered an ochi, but declined to pursue it as there was some debate on whether getting one would jeopardize an SRS.  However a mute point now because as pointed out by Melissa my SRS is scheduled with Dr Brassard on Dec 11th.

Hiee Steph,

  Congratulations I had not seen that your surgory date was so close at hand :). I think there are a handful of surgeons who refuse to perform vagio on anyone who has had an orchie, but most will now days I am given to understand. I think most girls should be aware that this type of orchie for us should be accomplished thru the abdomen and NOT the scrotum. Oh well maybe the info will be of use to someone else.

Again Congratulations :)[/size][/color]


Hiee BrandiOK,
 
  Yes it is a wonderful place to live, but tough to make a living due to depressed wages. We live not far from the community of Middle Musquodoboit which is about a 50 minute commute into Halifax, were I normally work.
