Here’s the answer. It’s private. Your health your surgery should be kept private. You are opening yourself up to the criticism. I learned from my counselor. If I was going to have a female surgery like a hysterectomy I wouldn’t go to work or tell my friends all about it. Yes you are excited. But it is private. Lose your weight and start accepting those compliments instead of judgements.
Now the damage is done. You have already let the cat out of the bag so to speak. Do not talk about it. If someone brings it up. Say, I have decided to keep it private thanks. Let them whisper as you start to look fabulous. Yes! They are jealous. So what. Females are jealous of each other. Let it be!
