Whats going on guys? I have not posted on here in quite some time but just giving you guys some information on the topic if any of you are interested. WHen I was 15 I got a small lump under my nipple from puberty. I have tried just about everything to rid myslef of the lump (gyno). As time has gone on, the lump has done nothing but slowly grown in size under both nipples. It has gotten to the point where not only does it physically humiliate me, it mentally frustrates me. I used to be a very confident man, but the gyno has significantly lowered my self esteem. No one has ever said anything to me about the size of my nipples, nor do I think it is very visible to the naked eye but it is a constant worry that I have in the back of my head. I was so embarrassed about the gyno it took me all this time to finally see a doctor about it. I scheduled an appointment with my regular doctor about three days. The appointment was very fast and very relieving. I had a great doctor who told me how surprised I would be to learn how many guys he treats for this kind of an issue. I was almost shocked how fast the appointment was and how relaxed the doctor was. All he really did was asked me if I wanted to get rid of it and how soon I wanted the procedure done. I replied I wanted it done ASAP but I was worried my insurance would not cover it. He told me that the insurance would approve of the surgery because there was a small chance that the lumps are not benign. He and I both knew that the lumps are benign but he said this would definitely give the insurance company reason to approve it. The doctor was even friendly enough to call the surgeon who worked in the building next door to see when I would get a consultation. I went straight from my doctor to the surgeons office to fill out my paper work immediately after my first appointment and set up a consultation for the following day. The next day I went in for the consultation and was also shocked how pain and embarrassment free the surgeon. The surgeon saw my chest, assured me it was just breat tissue under my nipples and he would gladly have me in as soon I could. I waited a day to see how much insurance would cover and they verified it would cost 20% of the procedure which is coming out to be about $700. I happen to have 700 but certainly not 4000 which is what the procedure would cost with out insurance. I will be going in in about a week and a half for the operation. Within the next few days I will be going to the hospital to give a sample of blood to make sure I am healthy for surgery. Other than that i believe I am making a life changing decision whose benefits far exceed the cost of having gyno. The surgery will take around an hour or 2 and I will be completely unconscious for the procedure. The first three days I will have to be at home with out being able to lift my arms veritcally only horizontally.I will not be able to do any strainuous activities for the first week and will not be able to work out my upper body from any where from 3-4 weeks. The doctor recommded I purchase a compression shirt(under armor like shirts) to wear for a while because it is supposed to help with healing. And to wear it under my normal shirts to keep the swelling from being visible. The doctor also told me that he will be removing both lumps fully compared to just partially which some people request for some reason? The doctor also stated that after the procedure the lumps will never return which is not what I first believed and is still something I am concerned about.
I was wondering what you guys think is the best product for hormonal regulation so after the procedure my hormones will be balanced and I wont have to worry about this type of situation ever again.Not a product that is going to increase my testosterone too much, just something that give me some type of balance.
Again I thank you guys in advance for any help, and I hope I can be of any help to any one who has any questions about a situation like this or thoughts of having this type of surgery.
