My Gyno Surgery Experience

My Gyno Surgery Experience
I finished my gyno surgery today and I know alot of people were asking me to notify them how it went... so I thought I'd post about the experience on here for you all to read. Maybe it'll give some insights on some of your future decisions with it.
Now, a good friend of mine is a doctor and he recommended me to Dr. Moncada, plastic surgeon. He is well known in my area for being a great plastic surgeon and claims to deal have done many steroid related gyno surgeries. He was a nice guy and acted as if he was my friend, which definitely helped in me trusting him.
In my consultation, the doctor was very quick to tell me what needed to be done. He told me very little lipo would be needed because my chest had a lot of muscular definition and little fat. It was just tissue that needed to be removed. He said he would leave very little tissue to avoid an "inverted nipple." Although he said SOME tissue will be left behind, he told me that it would be impossible for the tissue to regrow in the future... so that part didn't make too much sense to me.
I let him know I was a student and financial concerns were there. So the procedure was done with a local anesth. and in his clinic instead of a hospital.
The total cost came to $1500.. I'm not sure why it was so cheap. Perhaps because it was local aneths in his office, perhaps because I know a friend of his, or because lipo wasnt need, or maybe because I live so close to mexico so healthcare is cheaper here. Who knows???
Today was the procedure. Before hand, I was told NO LIPO would be needed, and that the procedure they did 1 hour before me was a very similar gyno surgery.
I was told to strip to my underwear and lay in the operating room. He marked the area that would need incisions. I then was strapped to the bench in a cross like position, and had an IV put in my left arm. Along with a blood pressure monitor on my right arm.
They put a piece of paper in front of my face so I couldnt see the procedure, and then the nurse put some sort of medicine in my IV. Whatever it was, it was the best feeling Ive ever experienced in my life. Within a minute I felt soooo happy and very talkative. I don't remember much detail after that, but apparently I wouldnt shutup the entire surgery and was talking the entire time about my girlfriend, my hometown, work as well as a couple stories (I remember none of this) haha. I do remember the doctor sticking a needle into both my nipples, and then a few underneath the nipples. I was a little too happy to count all of them and realize what was going on. I didn't feel any pain, but you still can feel every tug and every cut. Every now and then though the doctor would use this certain tool, and it would hurt like helllllll. Im not sure why only that tool caused pain.
I passed out after that for a bit and had some crazy ass dreams, and then I woke up in a different room. I was standing up already and had the wrap around my chest. The doctor and my girlfriend had to help walk me out of the building because I was way too stoned out of my face to walk normally. I honestly felt like a full out retard... but it was amazing haha.
The nurse showed me what they pulled out of me. And it looked like a big yellow clump of wet playdough, with a bit of blood on it. I was told not to shower for a few days to help avoid infections. I looked under the wrap and although there is some swelling on the top of the chest, the nipple looks like it use to before I got gyno. It is smaller, and perfectly flat. I can tell there is no tissue under it anymore. Hopefully when it heals, it remains similar to the way the nipple is now because it looks good. I am very pleased so far.
They prescribed me 2 medicines. Vikadin for the pain, which makes me pass out everytime I take it. And then something else to help with the flammation.
Now that the meds have worn off, my nipples are extremely sore and painful. I can move my arms fine and stuff, but when I stretch too far it becomes painful. But it is nothing too bad. The vikadin helps though.
Overall, the procedure seemed very simple. The procedure itself took about an hour on me. And my doctors made the experience very pleasant for me.
... and again the pain wasn't even that bad. In fact I finished the procedure at 2pm. Took a vikadin and slept till 5pm, and then went to work for 2 hours (I work at an office though, so its nothing with manual labor).

so after all that, was it worth it?

I believe so, yes. I'm still wrapped up so I cant exactly say so yet. But the surgery went smoothly, and it seems as if he did a great job.

Where in south TX are you? Im in houston. Make sure you keep the wrap on or your risk fluid build up where he operated.. He didnt put any drains in to avoid fluid build up? thats odd.

Im not sure what he did there. I have some anti-flammatory medicine though that I take every 12 hours?

ok cool. I think theres wasnt alot to remove in the first place and hes counting on the tension of the wrap, make sure that thing stays on.

Did you have surgery on both sides? How is it healing up so far?
01-08-2010 09:58 PM
It was on both sides. Little bit of swelling but its healing great.

And I hung out at my house with my friend Nick and told him about the surgery.
So trippy. Apparently I tried to buy a ps3 as well, but my girlfriend wouldnt let me because she knew it was the drugs that were controlling me lol
