Surgery took place december 11th and the total cost of surgery was $7,000. I had to pay it all upfront so a lot of it went on credit cards.
My family is not helping me pay this at all and insurance did not cover anything. I am on my own.
I was diagnosed with gender dysphoria a while back by my therapist. Dysphoria has had a lot of negative effect on my life — having to deal with getting misgendered/misnamed because of the way, not being seen the way I wanted because of the way I look, being treated different because of my appearance, feelings of insecurity and hopelessness, anxiety, depression, etc.
Furthermore, I had been wearing a binder for multiple years almost every day so I live with constant back pain that it is putting strain and creating permanent damage on my ribcage and back. This surgery has changed my life but the cost really added up and is now putting strain on my financial life.
I’ve been on testosterone since August of this year and I have literally never been happier. It has improved my dysphoria a lot and helped me become more confident. The next step is top surgery but I can’t do it without help. I can’t afford this transformative surgery alone and really appreciate and love anyone who donates.
Thank you to anyone who donates, it means the world to me. I really value any help I can get.
