I’m planning on getting top surgery so for those who have gotten it, what is it like?

      Not too bad! I was able to go back to work with lifting restriction at about two weeks post op. There is a weird dull burning/itching sensation occasionally after a month or so of healing due to nerve connections for sure. I opted for no nipples and then tattooing after the fact (more control over aesthetic, easier healing without grafts to worry about, also I had little to no sensation before hand anyway so I wasn't missing much.) The one thing I wish I'd have done beforehand was BUY A BACK SCRATCHER!!! Not being able to itch my back for weeks drove me NUTS

      I only put gender dysphoria as a tag I’m sorry for those that got this recommended to that this doesn’t relate to due to all the extra tags it added

      i havent personally got it, but my ex did and i took care of them afterwards. he did very well with it, although they put him on oxytocin so he didn’t feel much of the pain at all. really the thing he struggled with most was not being able to shower!
