Questions About Electrolysis in Preparation for Surgery

Hello Again Dr.  Reed,

I wrote you a week or so back about scheduling SRS with you.
I barrow the $5000 for the surgery and have it in hand. I need to know a few things first.

About the scrotum hair removal, Is there a way this can be bypassed? I understand why it
should be done but I have  limited time and resources. I work at a power plant and we are down for 1 month
per year.. IN MAY. I will not have another opportunity till next year. I am not sure I can wait that long.

I may sound as if I am in a rush I am but only for time’s sake. the opportunity to do this just happened.
I have been waiting  to do this for quite a few years and now I have the finances for surgery and I need
to seize the opportunity it before something comes along and  distracts my finances and time.
So, back to the hair removal problem.

I wrote to you in one letter telling you I was pretty clear in the areas you described. I have some hair “not much
on the front side of the scrotum but none on the back side all the way to the anus.
On the penis, at the base of the shaft on the sides, Left and Right  there are some plots of hair but they are
confined to about the size of a dime and not very thick. The rest of the penis shaft is clear of any hair at all.

I am an American Indian and we are not very hairy. Could you work with this? and if some depth is lost because of it,
It will not be that big of a deal to me.    Nyra


Dear Nyra,

We have posted on our web-site an electrolysis diagram with explanation  Try to get your electrolysis 3 months out of the way before suergy, because 10% of the 10% of the 10% hairs do grow back.  Having penetrating sex with hair in your vagina is not fun.


Cordially and have a restful weekend,
