Chest revision. All done under a local anaesthetic. Very weird and really painful but worth it.
A blunt metal pipe rammed in and out of my chest sucking out the excess tissue. Right side on Monday, left side yesterday (Tuesday). Fucking ouch.
I’m sick! Take a photo of me!
For anyone interested in scar treatments! I’ve been using a 100% silicone lube called Pjur for the last couple of months (morning and night) and I’m astounded at the results!
From my local adult shop a little bottle cost me about $15 and when that ran out I bought 100ml bottle for $30. you can buy commercial silicone scar treatments for triple that amount for a tiny volume but stuff that!
Make sure the lube you buy has no alcohol in it which normally ends in *thane or *anol (not *onol). Pjur has three ingredients that are all silicone.
I love the autumn sun upon my face on a Sunday morning…
Five months post op…Dr Megan Hassall, Sydney.
I’m just over four months post op!
A li’l comparison. 18 vs 33. Back then I was suicidal and about to be admitted into a psych ward. Today I love my life!
About 18 months on testosterone…
A bunch of Aussie trans guys share their experiences of what led up to medical transition and beyond. In a treehouse south of Sydney (in a town called Bundanoon!).
Today marks six months post op…Dr Hassall (Sydney)
Managed to get to the gym today too! Feels great to be working my chest again!
I love my transsexual body, it’s perfect because it’s the only one I have….take that world! Fuck off with your shaming and your othering and your Never Good Enough. Trans* people are beautiful and even though I’m sometimes really scared to inhabit it, my body looks after me the best he can.
I’m white, have ‘thin’ privilege, am relatively able-bodied, mostly mentally well, I’m supported by my family and community and I ‘pass’ 100%. I’ve got it so much easier than so many of my trans* sisters so I stand in solidarity against trans misogyny and sexism in general!
Every person who follows me should read this, particularly if you are a trans guy, specifically if you have supported the XX Boys project as I once did. This man needs to be brought to account. Please reblog.
TRIGGERS: sexual assault and some serious rape apologism
I have an announcement to make. Actually, we should all be in the habit of talking about this every few months at least until a day comes when he is finally accountable, and until our communities do not harbor attitudes that enable this…
And almost 4 months post op
