I’m Bruce Lee today. Like water. 1 day after #topsurgery

Absolutely no pain. Feeling wonderful.

Still getting there realising chest is flat…. Will only really get it when I get home and can stare at myself in the mirror. Hate looking in mirrors in public places. Reveal on Thursday next week. Covered and compression vest until then.

Was in the process of getting discharged, but nurse who came to change the wads of padding from the left drain that was leaking said there’s a hole in the drain. Three doctors and one matron said it’s fine; bleeding through all your clothes is cool, despite all the nurses being unhappy.

Now have to wait for Dr to get out of surgery. Probably have to get local anaesthetic, remove drain suture, attach it or another one more securely. So here for a while. But all is good. Still smiling from ear to ear and chatting to the nurses and the Gogo in my room. And got this necklace from the sangoma nurse who finally helped with the problem with the drain. Will treasure it, and all these memories. Absolutely no pain. Feeling wonderful.

Ok, my trans brothers and siblings were impatient, so here you go:


Compression and drains stay on and in until next Thursday. Big reveal then. Still unreal.
