But I do plan on having srs, within the next couple years, and just want the best possible result.
Kira: who did your castration? How much was it? What the procedure like? recovery? results? effects?
Dr Bruce Neal ( Urologist) in Greenbay Wi did my Orchiectomy. I had it done in feb 05 and the price at that time was $1650.00. It was A local,and outpatient.
I was on light duty for a cpl weeks, but I was able move around after the surgery and felt very little pain.
For the first few days I did need Ice packs, for swelling. It was A Bi lateral 1/2in incision and all the scrotum was left intact . I have feminized faster and I need less estrogen and no blockers.
I still can function, get aroused, and can orgasm, but just a small clear liquid. I have shrunk a cpl in in length and width. I have only transitioned 3 yrs ago and my results from HRT were speeded up and not interfered with by any testosterone. I'm extremely pleased with the results.
I highly recommend Dr Neal and you can can google him
