Ashton Wetzel My Top Surgery Journey

First post: Nov 11, 2022 Latest post: Dec 21, 2022
I have been transitioning (female to male) for over 5 years now. It has been an incredible experience for me. The social transition and the testosterone have been life changers. I'm much more confident in myself and look forward to taking the next big step in my journey: getting top surgery. This long anticipated surgery is finally coming up on December 15th. I'm beyond excited to get this procedure done. My chest is a big part of my gender dysphoria (discomfort/distress about the body not agreeing with one's gender identity). My post op goal is being able to take my shirt off and not hating what I see (that's my current reality). I decided to make this site to publish updates on my operation, so that my friends and family will be able to get faster information about my recovery and progress. I will still be reachable via text and GroupMe, but this site will be a good first place to check for how I'm doing. Thank you for your support, encouragement, and love. -Ashton
