Now this is ever so slightly icky – and maybe addressed more to other trans women who may have gone thru this and be able to tell me if my experience is “normal”. Head tells me it is nothing to worry about: usual panicky heart is thudding away too many beats to the minute.
OK: you have been warned. If you don’t like posts about moistness and personal health, just look away.
Otherwise. As those who have gone the MtF route will be well aware, the bane of your life post-op…bane, that is, until it becomes interesting 🙂 …is the daily dilation chore and…the douching to follow.
How many baths since July? I mean: i know i like baths, but there comes a point…
Anyway: yesterday i followed routine as usual. Got dressed, did some pottering, headed down to the kitchen to cook something and…felt something warm and wet trickling down my leg.
Instant OMG panic…as first thought was that it was blood. But nope: turned out to be water…a very large amount of same.
Which i am guessing got left behind post-douche.
So: initial fears calmed…leaving just a slightly residual worry about whether it is anything to be worried about. Andrea reckons it is simple tightness, which seems fair enough as explanation, and then went on to express a degree of envy over same. 🙂
But is it healthy? Is it unhealthy? Is it a potential source of infection?
Anyone else prepared to own to similar? Or to re-assure?
If it happens again, i’ll contact the Clinic. Otherwise, though, i don’t wish to bother them about something that might be nothing – but don’t want to ignore it if its something.
Fellow (shy) hypochondriacs will know what i mean.
