Hey y’all, summer is on its way and I wanted to share a real good moment I had last summer when I went swimming for the first time since I had top surgery. I was eight months post-op at the time. It was a moment I was looking forward to for years and I’m so happy that I get to experience this every summer from now on!

A note: if you’re getting or have gotten top surgery make sure you wear sun screen with a SPF of 30 to 50 for the first year or two. Sun exposure can darken scars permanently, making them more noticeable. For the sake of this comic I did not include sunscreen but I was very diligent on wearing it.
