Facial Feminization Surgery – Day 16

Day 5 after round 2 of surgery: (lowering the hairline, brow reduction (which includes “opening” eyes by reducing the orbital bones). Day 16 since the first round of surgery.

Eyes are definitely getting better. Hopefully the bruising will be gone by the time I start heading home on the 31st. (On the 31st I fly to Panama, then spend a day there, then fly the remaining leg home on the 2nd.)

It’s 90 today and I’m not handling the heat + humidity that well. Sleep deprivation is adding up, although I was able to sleep a couple during the day and will go back to sleep shortly.

But I had to force myself to go out and get something to eat. It can be bit hard to tell at time whether I’m weak due to recovery, low blood sugar or just not having eaten enough. (I actually end up having to eat something at the apartment first to get enough short-term energy to walk a block or two to the nearby restaurants.)

Thankfully the sandwich I got is huge (enough for two meals), so I brought the remaining half home with me, so there’s something more substantial to eat when needed.
