It's over a week since I put on my last hormone patch. But there are no signs of any trouble yet.
As you can imagine, I've been watchful for signs of sudden masculinisation in the pre-op period. I was expecting increased hair growth on my chest, and maybe a five o'clock shadow around my mouth by the evening. Also the disappearance of my breasts and hips, and the reappearance of arm and leg muscle. Basically the unravelling of all that the hormones have achieved so far. And I've been warned also of things like hot flushes.
But no hint of such negative effects.
However, there's still over a month to go...
