I will need a TFCC repair and have been seeing Dr. Watson for the diagnosis. He came recommended to me by another surgeon.
Just looking for some warm fuzzies in case he needs to fix my issue... anyone have a good/bad experience with him?

2023.06.10 23:36 Agunqui Liposuction on Flanks
I have two quotes for flank lipo from surgeons in Mexico City and wondered if they sound reasonable? I’m from the US and was hoping to save some money.
1st Dr. quoted $5,500, but I said that sounded high so he knocked it down to $4,600
2nd Dr. Quoted $8,500 but said I really needed to do my abdomen as well or I wouldn’t look right, so this price if for flanks & abdomen.
Has anyone had flank lipo in US/NYC area? curious what the going rate is.

2023.06.10 22:10 Artistic_Heron_9436 I regret becoming friends with someone and don't know why
Edit: language and some spelling errors I could find
TL;DR: I became really good friends with a girl who admits that I am the closest person to her and for the past few months, I have felt nothing other than regretting being her friend and wish to cut her out of my life completely. The worst is that I don't even have a reason because the events I could pinpoint aren't reasons.
This is my first ever post on here so please forgive me if I go against Reddit norms here and there.
I changed a few details of the story, although I know for a fact that the person in question doesn't use Reddit.
2 years ago I (23M) and a few university mates of mine were invited to a semester-closing party organized by Lisa (21F) as we shared one of our courses and had some great conversations. After the event, she invited me for a coffee the next day, to which I of course replied yes. I have to admit, as someone who has never been in a relationship, I came to the conclusion that she made the first move. In retrospect, I don't think it was but whatever. Over a few months, we became great friends, mutual acquaintances were shipping us pretty hard, my best friend had numerous convos with her about why we aren't together yet etc. In the beginning, I was really hoping that there would be something more serious between us and gradually, she seemed to think the same. When there was only the two of us, she shared some of her deepest secrets with me, we went to sleep cuddling etc. You get the picture.
Now, to the title of this post:
For the past few months, whenever her name appeared on my phone, I could feel my blood pressure going up and not because of the butterflies. I get this bad feeling in my stomach and the back of my neck and become incredibly frustrated. I don't even contact her at all, although this has been the case since we first started talking, it is nothing out of the ordinary. I regret getting close to her and simply want to cut her out of my life completely. As bad as it sounds and I want to spit in my own face for even thinking this, but sometimes I even wish her death so that she would leave me alone. The worst reason is that I don't even know why I want her out of my life.
Some events that I can think of.
- She had had an awful breakup right before that party she organized and thus did not want to date for a while, which I totally understand and she did not even lead me on about it. During a trip we had where there was supposed to be the two of us, one of her guy acquaintances from longer ago hit her up after 2 years that he wanted to meet up with her. I knew they had a history, which made me a bit uneasy (as I mentioned before, I had hopes of being more than friends with her and this guy endangered that). She for some reason said yes and told him where we are and that he can come if he wants and of course he arrived shortly after. Have to admit, he was a decent guy, cannot say anything bad about him. They were sitting next to each other after that all the time, hand on her leg, walking hand-in-hand but nothing more. Now, I neither am not and nor was not mad at the time either. One of my only good attributes is that I can separate my ego and feelings from commone sense. Thus, as we were not a couple, I have no right to be mad at either of them. I have no hard feelings at all.
2) She got together with a guy and now they have a really good relationship. However, whenever there is a problem, she comes running towards me for mental support. I have always tried my best to support her and their relationship, I never wanted to mess with it. I suspect that her boyfriend doesn't like that I'm close to her, which I totally understand. If I was in his place, I would also not want my gf have a guy best friend, for obvious reasons. Why I told you this story? Because the first thought when I concluded that I regret being her friend was that maybe I'm angry that she chose a different guy and not me, however, I realized that I have lost feelings for her long ago.
3) We are each other's polar opposites in every ways with totally different goals and values. I'm the quiet, reserved, introverted guy whose favorite free-time activity is chilling at home, reading or playing video games. She, on the other hand, is the loud, active, extroverted girl who always wants to travel somewhere. She also talks a lot in general and whenever I start talking about my interests, the topic is quickly shifted to something she wants. She calls me a lot and whenever she does, I'm stuck in a phonecall for over an hour. These are why I'm actually glad she has a bf because at least now a lot of this is directed at him. However, being each other's polar opposites cannot be a reason for me to resent her this much
To conclude, I have no idea why I would want to get rid of her so much. As you can see, the "reasons" are not reasons at all. I have no idea at this point but I cannot go on for much longer like this, I know I will blow up sooner or later. I'm also affraid to break these news to her as I know she will be devestated and I also suspect that I would be targeted by her revenge and she could really mess me up as well. I'm just confused and helpless, don't know what to do at this point.
Thank you for sacrificing your time to read my ramble. I know it does not make any sense at some points and there might also be some punctuation or spelling errors here-and-there, sorry, English isn't my native language. Any advice is welcome, although I do not expect any.
Have a nice day yall!

2023.06.10 21:18 wickedbitchin_ Choosing between doctors (advice/surgeon review)
After years of debating (I am 21 now) I have finally decided to go ahead with a breast reduction. I have consulted with two doctors, and I'm not sure which I want to go with. Does anyone have any advice about choosing a surgeon or how they made their decision? Also, if anyone has experience with Dr. Mia Talmor in NYC or Dr. Valerie Ablaza in Montclair I'd love to hear how it went for you. They both seem good so it's tough to decide who is the better option.

2023.06.10 21:10 mixed-signaler Likelihood that insurance will accept code for auxiliary liposuction?
I’m a bit confused with the insurance process and would appreciate some advice.
I’m trying my damn best to get DI top surgery and have gone through all the necessary consultations/approvals— but have gotten stuck on insurance.
My surgeon submitted codes CPT 19318 (breast reduction) and CPT 19877 (auxiliary liposuction) to my employer-provided insurance, Aetna Meritain. The breast reduction was accepted, but 19877, which is used to prevent dog ears, was denied as “incidental” to 19318.
I understand that liposuction typically falls under cosmetic— is it worth appealing to my insurance? My understanding is that I have very good insurance, I was surprised to see the denial in the first place.
Have any of you had success in appealing? Do most people get liposuction? Is it necessary for a good result?
Just looking for the best course of action. Thanks so much.

2023.06.10 20:31 SapphireScully Finally scheduled for total hysterectomy. Only one luteal phase left in my future
TL; DR: I have a full robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy scheduled July 12, and i can’t believe my nightmare is almost over 🥲😭✨🙏🏻🙌🏻
TW: brief mentions of SI/SH thoughts & SH actions, psychosis
i am a very feminine mid 30s non-binary person and in november had my first discussion about a gender affirming hysto. Gyno was reluctant to remove my ovaries due to age/not on other HRT. A completely reasonable thing. She was trying to gauge if I would be comfortable on feminizing hormones since i cannot take masculinizing ones (like no joke - my BODY knows it’s non-binary. tried to go on T, severely allergic. had to come off. every time my hormones switch around during my cycle, my brain loses its shit. it just wants to chill as is.) The answer to that question was yes, which would have lead her to then agreeing that yeah, let’s take it all.
Apparently, (i back tracked the dates) I was at day 20 of my cycle, aka Peak Irrational Bitch, and took her completely wrong. I felt like she was trying to get out of helping me. I tried to explain my PMDD symptoms, and she accidentally referred to it as “pms”, and i felt completely dismissed and unheard. I fully shut down at that point. Just was a sobbing mess. I was so confused because every local trans group has held this doc in high regard for her kindness and understanding.
Fast forward to April - I had been off work for 4.5 months due to a mental health crisis in january, trying to so hard to work on getting myself to a place i can function again. the gender affirming stuff had been put on the back burner, and so my therapist and i hadn’t finished my final needed letter for insurance. And then my PMDD got so bad it caused a full psychotic episode. I was in a “delusional state of mood congruent psychosis” for 5 days. Once my period started and my brains came back, i knew i had to address the pmdd for my mental health to improve. I saw my therapist right in the middle of that 5 days, and then 2 days after it ended, and she just kept saying “i’m so glad you’re back. i was really scared.” i had never experienced psychosis before, it was absolutely terrifying.
After this, is when i started back tracking my cycle dates. the day i admitted myself to the hospital in january? right at end of my luteal. My horrible SI & full autistic meltdowns with severe SH the last few months? only happening during luteal. and it all made sense. So my therapist finished her letter that week. I met with my psych NP and we came up with a better game plan (aka take all the klonopin you need 😹) for future cycles. I have had one luteal phase since, and thankfully only had about 20 hours of psychosis that cycle. I was so afraid of triggering it, that i avoided all emotional thoughts or feelings the entire luteal phase. Still severe irrationality, anxiety, SI/SH thoughts, SH actions, etc. But not as bad as april.
I met with the surgeon again on Thursday. I was so nervous she wouldn’t want to take my ovaries out, but after realizing I likely was in a place of severe irrationality in Nov, decided to go in as if this was our first time meeting. She was the exact sweet, understanding, kind doctor that the local community had stated. She was very understanding of me wanting everything out, and happy to hear i was okay with taking estrogen. She documented my psychosis symptoms, and said that she has rarely had a patient with such severe/treatment resistant pmdd, and supports my NP & Therapist’s conclusion that the psychotic features were due to the pmdd. I felt heard and validated, and the only difference was where my brain was in my stupid cycle. (I actually had initially scheduled with her on day 22 of my last cycle, but then when i realized when i called and rescheduled for day 8 of the next one)
Next week starts my FINAL luteal phase. The last one!!! EVER! Y’all i can’t express my relief. I know i have a lot of mental health work still to do, but now i won’t be terrified of having an emotion for 2 weeks a month.
When talking to my NP friday, i said “okay so my next… no… my LAST luteal.. 🤩” and it was such a great realization.
I’m going to miss out on some things i was really looking forward to this summer, but i’m okay with it. I think it’s all going to be worth it. I’m more excited about no more luteal than i am about no more dysphoria inducing periods, and that’s saying a LOT.
I have lurked here a lot, and i am so happy to share this celebration with y’all. any tips for me, i welcome them ♥️

2023.06.10 20:18 LeastPassenger184 Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma
In 2019 my wife was diagnosed with Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenomain her right parotid gland .when the surgeon operated he said 4 of the 7 lymph nodes .he removed the tumor and lymph nodes and he said he left a little due to it being on the nerve.said that radiation would work .I asked about chemotherapy and he said no need for radiation would take care of it. Did a pet scan in 2020 and cat scan in 2021 and every thing was fine. Then without us knowing the radiation dr retired and we were not notified. Every time we called they said dr want in. So all of 2022 we didn't see the dr.the starting in March of this year she starting having pains in her chest and back .thought it was from covid she had a few weeks earlier. The in may finally she went to family doctor and he ordered a mri of he chest.they found cancer on her spine and in more investigation was in her pelvis and her liver. Biopsy came back from her liver it was the cancer from her parotid gland she had befor.

2023.06.10 20:05 mygarbagepersonacct Dressing after unilateral mastectomy
Hi friends. I am scheduled to have my mastectomy for my left breast and June 19. I will eventually have the other breast removed and reconstruction done, but my surgeon prefers to do one at a time. Initially, I thought that meant a few weeks apart but now she is saying the second surgery and reconstruction will likely be eight months from the initial surgery. Honestly, this news really devastated me since my self-confidence is already in the toilet from chemo.
Anyway, I am wondering what bras, bathing suits, dresses and shirts people have found to work for them in disguising the fact they only have one boob. Also, any recs on prosthetics are welcome!

2023.06.10 17:33 starstruck93 Questions concerning everything about a TT, mommy make over, financing, DC northern VA area possibly.
Hi, I had a 2nd baby late in life ( I was 47 in 2020 when he was born.) I opted for a c-section with this one because my first was a vaginal birth and it was an awful recovery. The c-section recovery was almost painless what I'm left with a flap/pooch over my incision line. Yes I'm still around 10lbs over what I weighed before I got pregnant but losing that isn't really going to improve the lower abdomen area. Not only do I have a fatty flap over the incision but I have alot of excess fat on the upper abdomen. My boobs are a bit saggier than before but not awful. Iv'e looked at a bazillion before and after pics and it seems as if some surgeons don't remove as much fat as others. I have a fear of paying this much and not being pleased with the results. Did did you discuss the expectations with your surgeon before surgery? What was your cost for a tummy tuck, upper abdominal lipo with breast lift and did you finance it? For anyone living in the DC, northern VA, Maryland area do you have recommendations? TIA!

2023.06.10 16:49 TheHonorableBird Areola Shape and Size
I posted a couple weeks back right after I got my surgery about my nipples being shaped weird post op. I went from a 28DDD to about a 28B/C. Since then, I spoke to my surgeon about them and she said that they would shrink and even out as my breasts settle. I’m still really nervous about the shape and size because I haven’t seen any change. They are definitely bigger than they were pre op and they are shaped like ovals with the nipple not in the middle of the areola. Did anyone else experience this while healing from their surgery? Did they even out as expected?

2023.06.10 15:59 AddykinsMom Bottle or breast?
My daughter born at 34 weeks + 2 days is now 36 weeks gestational age and I’m struggling with feedings. She is otherwise healthy and is only in the nicu to learn to feed fully without her NG tube. I obviously want her home sooner as it’s loud and chaotic here a lot of the time. It’s hard on both of us. I’m breastfeeding 4 times a day and then nurses are trying bottle (dr brown preemie) at night when I’m home.
I keep asking if me being here more would help and was told not by much. She does better at bottle than breast. I said I was open to bottle feed but was told to keep trying breast as my milk supply will go down if I don’t have her on my breast. Is this true? I pump after each feeding.
She needs to build strength to keep on the breast. Her best time has been 20 minutes, but every session varies. I’m looking for advice on what worked to get your baby home or should we expect to be here until she’s full term or closer to her due date of July 7th? Nurses opinions change on what’s best so I find myself researching online after I ask questions.

Hey y'all! So my friends are coming out to visit me for the weekend and we have been planning on going swimming. This would be my first time swimming flat-chested and I've been really looking forward to it. However, I've been getting worried about damaging my scars because of the sun and chlorine. I'm 6 months post-op and my scars have closed up, but I don't want to ruin my progress. I tried contacting my surgeon but she hasn't gotten back to me unfortunately. Any tips from folks who have gone swimming post-op? Here's what I'm working with 6 months post-op with Dr. Corcoran at UIC!

2023.06.10 15:27 JennyJiggles Weak everywhere, particularly hip and core.
I lost a ton of strength and muscle tone during the last 3 years with COVID shutting down the gym and then I was pregnant and miscarried and then immediately got pregnant again. I went through the 9 months and delivered C-section. So all this to say, my exercise was basically nil. During this time I developed a dowager's hump, I think mostly from being slouched while breast feeding.
I noticed that during the last year, my lower back gets strained very easily, like from vacuuming the stairs. I went to a chiro and he said my main problem is lack of strength, particularly in hip and core. But after two appointments, SURPRISE! I'm pregnant again. So I stopped going. Now I don't know what to do. I'm 14 weeks along and Dr okayed exercise. But where should I start? Hips? Core? Alternate? What exercises are best to start with?
