And She's Back
Am back to work. I am very happy about it. Two weeks is no joke! I am so glad that everything worked out for good. I feel calmer and easier and happier...I mean, I have no words! Basically, its a calm happy serene mood I have been having of late. I simply wanted to make an update post before I seriously delved deep into workaholic-ism again!
So, my wound has healed, though there is still a little bit of swelling. The area is kinda itchy and thats annoying. The biggest physical relief definitely would be the lack of a bulge! Boy am I glad about that!! And now I have to make sure I eat well, drink lots of water and ensure I don't miss my estrogen pills. FYI, I am taking Estradiol Valerate 4mgs pd.
I am so glad that I did this and basically anyone who asks me why I did it I say its for two somewhat conjoined reasons. One, because of all the money I will be saving, and considering I don't see my SRS happening anytime soon, and Two, because of the immense relief I am and will forever (hopefully) continue enjoying due to lack of testosterone in my body. Here is a link about it through someone who went through it herself and one account which I think best describes the effects of Orchiectomy and here is another account by another lady.
Thank you all for the support you have showed me. Really, much of the strength I have I draw from y'all!
