I saw my family doctor today to tell her that I want to have FTM Top Surgery. Despite the fact that I like my doctor, I was more nervous than I thought I would be.

My doctor doesn’t have experience treating transgender patients and seemed relieved that I brought in some reading materials. In particular, the WPATH Standards of Care, information sheets I put together about the three surgeons I’m considering, as well as Dr. Preece and Dr. Knudson (one of whom I will need to see to obtain a letter of readiness for chest surgery) and some photos of Top Surgery results.

I had some trouble tracking down contact info for Dr. Knudson, so my doctor is going to look her up and contact her office regarding a surgical assessment appointment.
