Arm update, 7 months post op RFF phalloplasty. Just doing some housework and remembered heartwarmingly that last night, at a party, friends said they hadn’t noticed my arm scar. Today I am thankful for healing and looking forward to how else it will fade in the future.
Work by Dr. Devin O’Brien-Coon and the team at the Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender Health, with Integra and split thickness graft. Lots of mechanical scar care in OT at Hopkins. I have a genetic hypertrophic scarring condition we have managed aggressively. Scar revision coming next month after Philly Trans Health Conference. Looking forward to meeting anybody there who makes it out!
