Dear Dr. Reed,
Thank you for sending me a packet of info on male to female sex change vaginoplasty. After listening to your voice and your kind words I feel that you are the doctor for me. I have obtained the records of the blood tests, EKG and summaries of the x-rays that were taken during my recent appendectomy. I’m feeling quite fine now and I’m looking forward to getting the rest of me taken care of. I will be contacting one of the therapist on your recommended list in order to get the necessary letter you require and will call you in order to set up a date to see you. Even though I have waited many years to get this done, I would like to have this done as soon as possible. I look forward to meeting you. Are you able to describe a typical post-op course?
We have performed close to 2000 transgender procedures at the Reed Centre for Transgender Surgery – Miami and our affiliated hospital. Please visit our web-site srsMiami.com for before and after photos.
If you are a low medical risk, we can do you as an overnight stay at the Reed Centre. We would then transfer to a nearby hotel, and I would see you daily, until the 7th post-op day, when you return to the office, and your vaginal packing is removed and we show you and your friend or loved one how to use the vaginal dilators. Your urinary catheter stays in for 12 post=-op days. You can remove that on your own, and sutures typically are removed 2 weeks after surgery. You will need to identify a doctor in your home town who feels comfortable doing this, or return to our office.
If you are seeking a male to female grant, please call Anne our amiable office manager at 305-865-2000 and you ladies can talk. Travel and hotel expenses are additional, as well as vaginal dilators, antiembolism stockings, a ring pillow, and bowel prep medication and the like. I would like recommend surgery until you have had a good 3 months to convalesce from your appendectomy.
We have various financing options to provide for an affordable vaginoplasty.
