Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner has revealed that she suffered a massive panic attack after her first gender reassignment surgery.

The star opened up about her struggles with gender issues in her memoir, The Secrets Of My Life.”


And the 67-year-old I Am Cait and Keeping up with the Kardashian star revealed that she completely freaked out after having her first major surgery.

She disclosed that after struggling to catch some real sleep thanks to the drugs in her system from the surgery, her heart began thumping and she suffered a massive panic attack, asking herself:

“What the f**k did you do?”

She wrote: “This has never happened to me before. I am always in control of my emotions, but not tonight. Get a grip. Just get a grip. Try to take a deep breath. In. Out. Another. In. Out. It’s not working. I am having a panic attack. Every questions that I had before the surgery hits me again, only this time like a stream of bullets. Without embellishing – and I swear I am not embellishing – it is like I am convulsing inside. 

Caitlyn then reveals that she suddenly realised she hadn’t even seen herself, and worried that she may look into the mirror and see a stranger looking back.
She wrote: “After much deliberation, I had The Final Surgery in January 2017. The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated. I am telling you because I believe in candor. So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
