Today is the anniversary of my double mastectomy. 4 years ago today I chose to get my tits chopped off. At the time I thought it was the greatest day of my life. My dysphoria and my suicidal ideation disappeared when I saw my flat chest. I had a bad infection that took 🧵

Two rounds of antibiotics to heal. I also lost a nipple which hurt real bad. I know I could get one tatted on but I want my own nipple. After care was done mainly in my own. The surgeon saw me twice after surgery for a cursory look. He didn’t even notice my nipple 🧵

Falling off. I had to point it out to him. As time went on I began to regret the top surgery. I wish I had never got it. Sure I could get implants but it wouldn’t be my real breasts plus implants only last so long before having to be replaced. So flat chest it is. 🧵

The kicker to everything is that my friend who took care of me after surgery was arrested shortly after my top surgery for r*ping women. She would offer drunk girls at the bar rides home and take advantage of them. This is someone who saw me at my most vulnerable. 🧵

So top surgery has it’s complications too. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone if you’re breasts are healthy. I wish the doctors and therapist I had would have asked me more questions instead of being so quick to affirm me. Affirmation feels good but it doesn’t treat the patient.
