Over the past few months I have concluded that, yes, I do want SRS and Have recently received approval from my Dr. to start the process. I am fortunate that here in Canada I can get bottom surgery for free, other than travel costs. the wait list is currently about 4 months so it is really just up to me, nothing official holding me back. It’s actually a little scary!!
What is holding me back is the fact that I have a very physical job as an exploration geologist and I have a 12 year old child with special needs, who needs lifting around. If I had SRS I’d be on light duty at work for at least 6 months and same at home, leaving all the heavy lifting to my wife.
After 1 year on hormone therapy my body already feels a lot more like “mine” and although know I’d feel better with the appropriate female bits, I don’t know if it’s necessary.
The more I think about it the more I feel like I need to just go ahead and do it and that scares me!!
