I’ve been a little hesitant to relay all the bad things going on for this exact reason– the stuff that’s been going on with me is NOT the usual story that’ll happen if you undergo a phalloplasty. Strictures and infections are a POSSIBILITY. Not *probable.* I happen to’ve been particularly “lucky.”
But just like I can’t give individualized advice about other people’s bodies, I can’t predict how other people’s bodies are going to react to surgery. I wish I could offer something more reassuring than that, but: I want to make sure going in that people know what *could* happen, even if it probably *won’t* happen.
