|Hey guys. So my surgeon did not give me a surgical vest post surgery. Instead, he gave a ace bandages and sent me on my way. I'm trying my best to use them to help with my fluid build up complications, but as some of you know, ace bandage hurts a lot.
|So here's my question:||
| Did any of you order a vest from online to use more comfortably post-op? I found one on Underworks but there are no reviews so I am skeptical. If you did order one, where did you get it from?
|Thanks a bunch!
|I didn't use a vest or ace bandages and I healed just fine.
You look amazing for 49! I'd have guessed you were in your thirties.
Did your wife have any trouble adjusting to the fact that you're trans?
Yes she did have some issues with dating a transman. She is out as Lesbian in her community and proud of it. There was a time about 4 months into our releationship when she told me that she needed her space to figure things out. She had to work things out on her own. She had a hard time dealing with the whole transguy thing. She loved me but was Lesbian. I gave her space (which was about a month) and she finally came to. There was a point where I thought that it was over between us. She still identifies as Lesbian and I have no problem with it. Labels mean nothing to me. You are who you are as long as you are happy….that is all that matters.
Hey I was curious..
What testosterone product did you buy from napsgear for your DIY transition. There’s so many brands and added substances I have no idea which to choose. So I figured i’d better ask an experienced trans man instead of wing it.
I have tried a number of products on the Napsgear site. I prefer Testosterone Enthanate over Cyptianate. I have been using Testoviron Depot (Shering, Pakistan). You can use Geneza, Generic and Balkan (Do NOT USE BRITISH DISPENSARY).
You look amazing! I hope I look that good in 20 years. Congrats on your marriage and being awesome in general.
Thank you so much!! What an awesome thing to say!
Hormone therapy appointment ready to go!
I went to this doctor about 2 1/2 years ago. He really had no idea what to do. I schooled him I what I prescribed myself. He was honest with me and said that I was his second ftm patient and that he mostly handled mtf patients. Hopefully he has done research since then. He is very nice and was very willing to do research on ftm hormones. I only saw him twice (I needed a letter to get top surgery).
How do you self prescribe T?
I purchase my T from an overseas Pharmacy, no prescription needed (illegal).
I see a LOT of people self-medicating and self-prescribing hormones →
I know it feels terrible to have to wait to be put on hormones (especially when you don’t pass) but waiting a few months is actually helpful. I have PCOS, so back when I was female extra estrogen was introduced into my system. Because my body wasn’t used to it, it caused a lot of mood swings and…
I have been self-medicating and self-prescribing my T for 10 years. The one doctor that I did see did not really know how or what to prescribe….I had done my research so I SCHOOLED HIM. I am not saying that what I am doing is right….but there are always 2 sides to a story and this is mine. I have done extensive research on steriods but I am not an expert. If you want to know more just ask or read my profile.
Buying Syringes for T Shots in NC →
So a couple of weeks ago I decided to look into why it’s so difficult for me to actually buy syringes for my shots. My Dr doesn’t give my a script for the syringes so I have to buy them when I get my T filled. Even though I’m getting a prescription for something that requires IM injection, the…
So I’m sure we are all aware of the risk of cancer, health problems, ect with hormones.. This is the only reason I don’t want to continue to transition. Any thoughts or advice? Person experience. The dysphoria blows but I don’t wanna make things worse for myself medically. Thank you in advance.
I have been on testosterone for 10 years and so far no issues with my health….I will be 49 years old this year and I feel like I am 30.
