This drawing was made about a month ago directly after my very first surgical consult using pencil, paper and pro marker pens.
It was very hard going, meeting a surgeon. The man had to cover himself by telling me every single aspect that could go wrong before we even began. My excitement at getting a step closer to surgery was quickly crumbled. I wasn't comfortable with this surgeon.
He has never worked with a trans-gendered person before, as such I am afraid to let him work on me. I don't care about scarring, I just want to be able to appear aesthetically on the outside who I am on the inside without the constant pain and heat and discomfort of binding. However he seemed to be very focused on scarring and how almost all patients complained about scars after surgery and would not remove their shirts.
I am a trans man. I never remove my shirt as it is. I don't know if I ever really will aside from with people I am extremely comfortable.
But I digress, things are still up in the air with this one. I can only wait and see what happens, but this drawing was based on my initial reaction to the consultation.
