Hey, I'm Joe. I'm 18 and live in bay area, California. For a while I was planning on having top surgery in the beginning of January because I will be off from school then. I didn't try to make an appointment until today when I found out the surgeon will be on vacation. I can make an appointment January 16th, but I start school Jan 24th. That is not enough time to heal at all. My mom thinks that maybe I can get it arranged that I can get all the work and things that I miss from the first week of the spring semester..but I don't know if that's a good idea. It's going to be my first year in college and I already think I'm going to flunk. Missing the first week or so of classes isn't a good idea. I started thinking about other surgeons I could go to, but my mom doesn't want to travel. You would think there would be more surgeons in california? fuck. I feel like nothing ever goes right for me. I could of had surgery this summer, but I decided not to because I thought I would get a job ( I didn't ) and the heat would make it not as comfortable (true, we've had a heat wave lately). But still, I really wish I did it this summer instead. I could of gone to college with a flat chest, instead now I might have to wait until next summer. ugh.

urgh =/

yeah, missing a week probly isn't good =/ doable, but... it'd be tough I think. Depends a little on the classes you're taking...

Hope things work out *hug*

IF you maybe talked to your teachers individually and let them know it was a medical procedure that can not be rescheduled they might be okay.... Also a lot of the first week is not much anyways.. at least in my own opinion

Drr it sucks for you really. If it were me I'd wait till summer as X-mas break wil be hurrying things along as is. I didn't have chest sugery but has a cyst removed and it hurt to more aound that area real good for 1 week and still decentally sore for the next 1 as well. Now chest sugery is a whole nother ball of wax.

Still there is one side of me that says fuck it if your ready to have it done then do it, there is nothing that should stand in your way of feeling at home in your own skin.
