Reply To: The last 3 years of my trans gendered journey by a 73yr. old trans lady.


Hi Shona,

I understand your predicament.  I am 68, and similar concerns were presented to me.  I am lucky in that my health seems to be adequate.  I still have to meet with the surgeon for a face-to-face sometime this summer in NY, so the final word will be determined then.  I am optimist that I can receive the surgery, but I am not counting that surgical chicken until it is hatched.

I have been on hormone replacement therapy for only 8 months, much shorter a time period then many others in transition.  I never want to go back to being a male, I didn’t like being a male; and because I spent 67 years doing male, I have a hard time liking males.  Basically, I am a female now and nothing is going to change that: surgery or no surgery.

I have contact my primary and request an orchiectomy,  I never liked them and want them gone.  I will not miss them even a little bit.  Research indicates that following orchiectomy the testosterone levels drop significantly to that lower then a cis-woman’s level.  This allows the discontinuance of the spironolactone and the Finistride.  I am going to do this soon.

You may want to consider this as a step in the right direction.  You are already a woman, so be done with the little guys.  I wish you the best in your transition.

Take Care
