FFS Before & After

Here is just a quick page we created to explain the details of, and show before and after set of pictures from Jeneva’s FFS/BA surgery with Dr. Zukowski in Chicago, IL on 12/29/2011.  After the initial set of healing pictures this will likely drop to weekly and then eventually to biweekly or monthly.

Part of the reason we are sharing this is that when Jeneva was growing up her access to news and current events were severely limited.  We both feel that it is important for today and tomorrow’s generations to see things like this and understand that they are NOT alone and there are options to make the body match the mind (in other words “It gets Better!”).  Recently Jeneva has been helped tremendously by other reports like this from the past few years so she feels obligated to pay it forward a bit by sharing her own experiences.  The more we can show society how much this mismatch hurts and raise awareness then perhaps the more pain we can spare others in the future.  That awareness means that when children try to ask or talk to adults about gender related questions and issues then they will actually be understood instead of ignored.
