peoplewant to have top
peoplecan't afford to have top surgery but we are all at different stages of having had top surgery or are going to having top surgery so I thought it would be interesting to share so let's just kid introduce yourself yeah hi my name is Dylan I'm 25 and about to have top surgery next week so what have you been doing to prepare for that? I've had to arrange accommodation and have different people come over to keep me company, while obviously people have working lives and stuff.
I say excuse me, can you put your life on hold? well i arranged a variety of different people to come and spend the first fortnight with me so i'm not completely alone and i've been paid now so my mission for this week is to go out and buy things i need like the wet white just a few things like that, because obviously I've been told that you can't get your incisions and bandages wet and things say that I'm going to want to see, I want to maintain hygiene, so with wet wipes, roll-on deodorant and spray, and they're just the little things you have to think about. and get out there and get ready for the undercuts basically yeah yeah right I remember you also had a button down shirt and I totally forgot you know when I had surgery on my top I was encouraged to wear a white shirt because obviously you i don't want to have to get anything out here and yeah yeah little things to think about so romário how long ago was my surgery in march march 14th so it's been four four months and two weeks so far and i'm about to put my hands past my ears now like it was a thrill ride at first emotionally it was very hard to handle because looking I think for me it was the first time I really looked at my body and I built that relationship with my body and I had to build it with these bandages at the beginning so it wasn't like I could see my chest every day and develop it so it was kind of what I'm going to like a lot less on and I worried about the scars I worried I did a lot of work but I think I came to understand that what was happening was that my personal image in terms of my personal image in my head was a matter of addressing that because once I addressed that, it didn't matter what I saw in the mirror, I'd be okay with that, I'd be at peace with it and I think that was an initial shock to me because I never really stopped to look at myself, yeah, in its entirety, yeah, and I think that's been the most unusual aspect of my journey with the top surgery is Who am I?
Beyond surgeries, you know, beyond having chess or any other form of surgery. How do I see myself? to achieve that we have to be creative with our bodies you know where to find ways to have our bodies and feel better about the bodies we are in yeah i mean for me my top surgery was four years ago recently more than four years, and I had it pretty quickly after participating in my
transgendersummer, yes, I'm very happy. As it is, I have very visible scars because after my top surgery they stretched quite a bit and I was one of those people.
I'll make sure I'm really careful and then life just gets in the way and then all of a sudden you wake up and realize you've been kind of holding your hands like ah all night and stuff and they've been stretching and as you know there's this kind of stretch that happens like post top surgery and yeah the year after top surgery it's a big deal just take it easy but yeah I mean gosh everyday i can put on a t-shirt everyday i wake up and go to put on a shirt i feel so thankful even now you know for like me In the sea yesterday like yeah just in my underpants was this was such a surreal moment because i was like i wasn't wearing anything like i could just dip and then i conceded yeah kinda yeah the other end better gone. together they didn't leave and i was about to go in and i had to stop i was like i'm not in a bind if i get soaked i'm never gonna take it off you said you got up so yeah i got in my way so i was ok i have to stop now and it was yes i really want it to go on but this time next year we will all be together soon yes exactly that's right yes. yeah, it was interesting because you know what you were saying, I could relate to that in terms of preparation, yeah, I'm trying to be very careful and I ended up stretching a little bit and I think that's what bothered me. fact that I was so meticulous about it, so I think the message that you know for anyone, especially you, is going to help Jesus to relax, relax, just relax your body and then take it easy and enjoy the ride for to be honest yeah you know and by me I mean the thing that keeps me from taking my shirt off it's not really my scars it's the fact that I haven't worked out as much as I wanted to so you know I'm not too worried about the scars but i recently got a tattoo to start the process of covering them even for years like how does it feel to have a scar tattoo? you even know it actually hurts a lot to have my scars tattooed and it's because last year i did this process called dry tattooing where someone picks up a needle and said they were being inked on the needle it's just a needle stab stab stab stab all over your scar and what it did was help me get the pocket of sensation and it also flattened the scar quite a bit so when I put my hand on it I can't feel any lumps whereas before I was able to dry the tattoos. the satin brings it makes it look horrible to start wi because as you can imagine the blood rushes to the area and then helps with the healing process again yeah sure because of that process it was very painful and would not have been of another way, yes, so I want to say that it has changed my lifestyle.
Top surgery and I'm going to enjoy that for the rest of my life even wearing this John Paul like yeah I used to have to wear things that zip up to create an illusion and now it's like I'm just wearing a sweater like nothing but a John this night, it's as surreal as a journey walking, chest, shoulders, head held high, yes, it's safer, yes, and you were talking about white shirts, weren't you my first time? a post-up folder one of the first things i'm going to do is wear a nice white shirt because all white shirts have a little sheer to them, don't they?
Yeah you can see through them a little bit so right now I'm wearing my binder and then a vest and then a white shirt so I just can't wait to put you on a white shirt so I don't wear anything underneath that's the first of the first news. I'll make it great for me. However, gc2b seems to be the best these days, but people are divided between underworks. and GC to be that happened after I had my top surgery so I didn't have a working binder yeah and maybe one for the mighty realms at some point too yeah I never bound it because it made me feel more dysphoric and I think that's why it was more emotional for me after surgery because I developed this it disconnected my body so I wouldn't buy it but it wouldn't bother me because I didn't pay attention to it so as soon as I had surgeries that are not I pay attention, so I find very few people who never link to Chile.
It's really interesting because I mean it's kind of like cheat 22 with the linkage, isn't it? It's like for me not to buy and I felt horrible but then the bind also feels horrible so I completely understand where you're coming from that information it's more dysphoric but for me the dysphoria part is putting it on and taking it off and once you it's on and t-shirts can forget about it and ok i'm flat chested now let's move on. the day and then you have the horrible dysphoric moment at the end of the day where you have to take it off yeah yeah it's a bit of a catch-22 yeah that has never bothered me.
I don't think I feel the same. about packing too but that's another thing that's fair yeah it's important for us to be in touch with the physical community because sometimes being involved in an online community although it's helpful sometimes sometimes you get to the darker sides and you can really get more stressed more depressed yeah and we found out actually being a sweaty pop is this possible weekend it was great meeting real people it's fun to read the experience yes, and have very good hearts, and yes, it's all this weekend, it has touched my heart. genres Well, yes, weekend life.
I arrived as if I hardly knew anyone. I told you last day. I am hugging more than ten people. I can't wait to see them again. It's genuine. It wasn't just problems I think. What I loved was a genuine celebration, yes, no drama, no nonsense, but it was just about celebrating who we are and what we like, and it was tangible that feeling like you know it's all the different events from the March to the park. it's all the other events yeah you can feel how excited people were to be there and that was really nice so will you save this conversation for the other video that diggs i'm not going to be in that video ok i will La movie Beauty talks about transplant ok so yeah we'll be done with this thank you all for watching and if you want to tell us about your bonding experiences or if you can have top surgery and any advice you have please leave it in the comments next but yeah thank you very much and good luck with your surgery yeah who are you going to see myles berry in london here we go
