Gonna be a tough row to hoe. We'll be here for you. Having that much surgery scares the shit out of me, having had 4 major surgeries, for other issues. Hug

why? I mean all surgery carries risk. i had some for other issues as well. But so far did well.
Had one bad one about 12 years ago but other than that I was always fine after surgeries.

But yea. I am scared of a lot of things right now and surgeries are just a small part atm really.

"I don't mind questions. It is better to ask than assume things. And I don't mind answering the same question 20 times either. So we good."

Okay along those lines, and absolutely none of my business, but to offer you practice answering incredibly personal questions someone may ask besides me....like nosy family member or hey, I guess even your doctor would have to know. I'll try to phrase it in such a way that doesn't even necessarily apply to YOU, yourself.

When a woman transitions to a man, is it the norm/usual end result in your part of the world a circumcised or uncircumcised penis? Really, I don't even want to know which way you are going, (TMI) I'm just curious if both ways are an option. When going the other direction I know one of the things that must be decided is cup size of breasts. So another one is---who decides penis size and how?

These are the kinds of questions I KNOW my brother would ask me if I were in your place. To him I would probably smile and say "You'll never know." But that wouldn't stop him from asking. Feel free to answer the same way, of course.

I also just created a YouTube. I thought it's not just a good way to ramble a bit but also there aren't too many good FtM channels out there so I want to make one. Not saying it will be good but hoping so.
i wrote the first two scripts. I don't really feel comfortable in front of a camera yet, the way I look at the moment. But I will get a hair cut soon, and I want to buy a few nicer male clothes too. And at that point I will show in front of the camera. Until then I will use game play and just talk over the game play.

First I wanted to make the first video right away but then I didn't have the energy for it. My day was just too fucking stressful and my brain didn't work anymore.
So I will try to get the first video out tomorrow. maybe I can make it to a hair salon or whatever too, get ma hair done

When you get your channel up and running, I'll sub. Smile

I hope you all don't mind if I comment- although I don't really have any answer for you, I just thought it was an interesting question. I'd guess that choosing to have a foreskin isn't really an option- but I could be wrong. It just seems like it's a technical feat enough to fashion a penis with a head that has a pleasure-center.

Regarding choosing breast cup-size. That's only relevant if you choose to get implants. I currently don't have implants- my breasts are grown naturally and free-range in a field of green and flowing grass. Tongue Although, I'm not opposed to augmentation, I doubt I'll ever get that procedure done. Also, some extra TMI- my breasts are just under an A-cup. So, not large at all, but large enough that I have them. Big Grin Some trans women grow rather large breasts without surgery, just hormones. It's all up to the genetic RNG gods.

I am curious about penis size choices, too. I know that most advances in the field have come from the necessity of helping wounded vets, though, so I'm sure they'd be somewhat concerned about regaining at least their size before injury if possible.

As will I. I've watched many transgender youtube channels. It's interesting to see the transition over many months and how the person emerges from their fears and unhappiness.

RE: So I am transitioning
Thanks for the education, Emma. I did not know that large breasts could be achieved with nothing more than hormones but when I think it through logically it makes sense. I was an A cup or less most of my life being simultaneously with a weight that hovered right around 100. A C cup now that I am more like 150 pounds. But that was all fat related, not hormones involved.

"my breasts are grown naturally and free-range in a field of green and flowing grass." I love that. That is so funny. Be sure to fence them in, even as an A cup or when you're old like me you will still probably run the risk of them looking much like small tube socks filled with wet sand.

For MtF, with taking female hormones, breast will naturally start growing. So there will usually be something naturally. If a transwoman then decides she wants bigger breasts, she can can get them enlarged with either the usual pornboobs or with a differently shaped implant below the muscle to look more natural. (i know about breast implant because I happen to have one on one side but that's a different story)

For FtM, usually the most important surgery is actually top surgery (get a flat chest).
For bottom surgery, not every trans man will get that. it is a personal decision for every individual. I am not decided yet either if I want bottom or not. (though I like the idea of having a penis, to be honest.)
As for circumsized. In this part of the world, it is not a standards. Most men are not circumsized unless there is a medical need for it or because of their religion (usually jews and muslims might go for it at some point).
Now trans men have the choice between two surgeries as far as I know. One works with the natural growth that happens due to testosterone. The other one is a phalloplasty and the outcome, if done by a good surgeon, will look very much like circumisized. I think this is mainly due to the fact that it would be very hard to actually craft a functioning foreskin.

Did that answer your question?

RE: So I am transitioning
Quite well. And I also had no idea just testosterone would cause natural growth. Isn't the human body simply amazing? I thought phalloplasty was the only way to create a penis.

Thanks for the education!
