I hope this is the right place to do this. If not, please feel free to give me a virtual slap. Where to begin. At 63, I know I’m a bit late to the game on the physical side of things, but better late than never. My ‘battle plan’ is to start the surgical side with an orchiectomy. For a few reasons. Since I’m on Estradiol, I’m getting the female side. But I need to get rid of the testosterone in my system, hence the orchiectomy. I know there are T blockers, by why take more medication when I can get ride of the primary source. I have already raised a family, so I don’t need them for that. And going for a complete GRS won’t really give me something I would ‘find useful’ at my age (I’m trying to stay polite). And next summer, with no testosterone and over a year of HRT, I can get my top surgery. So, what do you think? I know my HRT doctor and my therapist agree with it, but you ladies have, or are, living this. You all are the one’s I’d like to hear from. Love, Michelle
