Nancy I am 46 years old. You are right, a consult here in the States would be a great idea.
I met Dr. Leis at First Event (he goes to many conferences) and got my FFS consultation for free, with no travel. So that's another option for you. He's also a member here at PE, so you might write and ask which ones he's going to that you might also be able to attend. And conferences are another good source of information about planning, surgeons, etc.
Thank you for your reply and advice Linda. I am looking to do FFS first and then hopefully get GRS as soon as I am afterwards. We plan to leave the Kansas City for an area that might be more trans-friendly.
You're lucky to have a supportive partner who's sticking with you and can travel with you and help you! You must be right about Kansas not being TG friendly. Any place that would teach intelligent design instead of evolution must be pretty backward!
And you look great Robyn!
Thank you Melissa, it would be great to get more information from you. I am going to watch the videos after this post.
