Lazy Sunday

Posted in surgery, transgender at 11:29 am by Michael

Surgery was all day Thursday, so this makes today the 3rd day post-op. Wow, what a difference 48 hours makes.

Lots of firsts today – I put in my contacts – super fun as I couldn’t get my classes on and with about 20/200 vision, there’s not a ton that I can see without some sort of assistance.

Anyway, this wasn’t quite so simple as just poppin’ em right in… oh, no, not that simple. The right eye was pretty straight forward, but my left eye was still a little two swollen. With some cajoling, and an icecube, after about 15 minutes of trying, I was able to get it in. I can see!

Samwich is feeling better this morning – not pukey, but still not 100%.

Anh made me a vanilla milkshake for lunch, and it was just damn yummy. That’s the only way I can describe it!

Here’s what was looking like then:

Surgery Post 3 Days

Tricia came down to give me a hairwashing, then help with the shower. This was quite a sight. She has what can be best described as fish-monger pants. She ends up standing behind you while washing your hair, in order to not get water onto the nose dressings.

When we finished that , I got to take a shower, which was fabulous, and I’m just relaxing watching TV (Anh went out with Tan and the Samwich to get some lunch….)

I’ll post some post-hairwashing pictures soon.

After all this “stuff” that I’ve gone through now, the question may be – how are you feeling, did you do the right thing… and the answer there is really unequivocally yes. I just feel like me… which is fantastic.
