Tips for littles recovering from surgery

Lots of Vanilla people have stuffies when recovering from surgery. It's comforting. Also, if you color, adult coloring books are all the rage. No need to hide them. ;)

Good luvk and speedy recovery.

What is top surgery? Never heard of such a thing...

It generally refers to sexual reassignment surgery for the upper part of the torso so people who recieved the incorrect body at birth can have their gender and body properly align. Bottom surgery is the same thing except for parts lower down on the body.

Hi there,

 

I'm a little and have had a few sports related surgeries so can share my experiences, they may or may not be useful for you

 

1. If you're a little who's had surgery, how'd you do it? Is there something you do or bring that comforts you?

 

I snuggled multiple plushies, read books and comics that made me feel good, sucked on my pacifier and in general was just a super suck. To be fair my wife knew I'm a little so there wasn't any hiding being done but honestly do what makes you feel good as a strong and positive mental state is important for healing.

 

And 2. How can I keep my family member from finding out? I won't be able to move much, so hiding things like Stuffies and getting them out over and over would take too much energy. Maybe I should try and hide in plain sight?

 

It is up to you how you want to approach things but trying to hide while trying to heal sounds like a lot of stress that could make things harder. I honestly wouldnt worry about a plushie or two, they are very common gifts to people after surgeries, kids AND adults. My mom gave my dad a plushie after his first cancer surgery and he took it with him for every visit to the hospital and no he wasnt a little at all.

 

My Daddy will be getting top surgery and we've already picked out a plushie for him. Plushies are comforting regardless of age.

 

Do you, but I'd suggest you decide well in advance of your surgery so it doesnt become a stressor when you're focusing on healing.

Thanks for all the help everybody! I feel a little less nervous now, and it does make sense to have a stuffie for comfort and some coloring books, I guess I needed that reminder lol

hi there!


i'm a little late to the party, but i've actually been on a medical haitus for the past month because of an emergency surgery, so i've got some really fresh, first-hand experience with this! 


 


while in the hospital, i had my NASA blanket on my bed & several stuffed animals with me. 


i watched a lot of disney/kids movies on my tablet & my partner brought me the switch so i could play games. 


keep your phone charged so you can check in with the people who matter to you! 


& accept all the help they offer you. 


 


once at home, make sure you go easy on yourself! 


i have a visiting nurse twice a week, & my partner still works full-time so i'm home alone a lot.


make sure you've got snacks/drinks on hand so you don't have to leave a lot. 


& be patient with yourself. 


:heart:
