I have mentioned in my intro that I am a future transsexual, and throughout my teens and here into my twentieth year I have felt the need to transition. I always felt more girly than most of the boys in town, but I grew up in a small town in Wes' Virginie where even the thought of wanting to transition is taboo. Constantly hiding my feminine side takes its toll on me day-by-day, but I always manage to survive it without sinking too down low. Out of all of the transgendered/DL forums I have been in I never quite garnered the courage to ask any fellow transsexuals about the ups/downs/do's/don'ts that go with the most important transition. This one is for post-ops. and I do apologize if any of these questions are too personal.
I already know the surgery is painful, but how is it after the full recovery period has passed?
What hardships did/will you have to face with family and friends once the transition happens? (If you are comfortable sharing. If not, then do not answer. The last thing I desire to do is open old wounds.)
Question 3: Do you regret the transition? If so, then what are your reasons?
Question 4: Did anything go wrong during any of the procedures that go with the transition? (I.E. Vaginoplasty/breast implants/Adam's apple shaving).
Question 5: What emotional changes occurred during the hormone replacement?
Question 6: Would you encourage or discourage me from pursuing this goal? Note in mind that my expectations are quite down to Earth and not at all unrealistic. I am aware of the complications that come with it.
