33 Years Old, 2 Kids, Can't Wait for my Vaginoplasty! - Houston, TX
I had been considering a vaginoplasty for years...
Finally had my surgery on Friday!
The first night, I was unable to sleep for more than an hour at a time for about 3 hours total. The catheter was uncomfortable, I kept having bladder spasms, and the pain was creeping up on me. The weekend on call nurse called me in a prescription for a medication for bladder spasms in the morning, and some Valium to help me sleep. I must say the 1st and 2nd post operative days have been tough!! The pain is pretty unbearable, even taking 2 Norco 10's every 4 hours around the clock. They only bring the pain down a little bit, then start to wear off well before I can take more. I also know they are constipating me, so I've been taking the stool softeners as well. No BM yet though. I took some photos yesterday to see this incision that's causing me so much misery!! Sorry the photos are a bit graphic and the catheter is still in. Hopefully I'll have that out in 2 more days. You can also see a small hemorrhoid that is now there after the surgery. From what I've read, that will probably go down after the swelling subsides.
My experience so far with Dr. Vitenas has been great! His office staff is helpful and kind, and his nurses are wonderful! The entire process has been smooth, from my initial consultation to my surgery on the 25th. They knew I wanted to get the surgery done within a few weeks of my consultation due to my work schedule, and were very accommodating to get me in ASAP. Everything was explained to me prior, and it's been nice to have an on call nurse available for after hours/weekend questions. I've been overall very impressed with Dr. Vitenas and his practice!!
