Caitlyn Jenner Reveals That She Suffered a Panic Attack After Facial Feminization Surgery

Pin It
Caitlyn Jenner finally decided that after 65 years of living as Bruce Jenner, she was ready to go through with her transition to a woman, which required numerous painful surgeries.

In her interview with Vanity Fair's Buzz Bissinger, Caitlyn revealed that after one of those surgeries, she actually suffered a panic attack. "What did I just do? What did I just do to myself?" she recalls thinking after a 10-hour facial feminization surgery on March 15.

Fortunately, a counselor from the Los Angeles Gender Center came to Caitlyn's house and assured her that the her reaction was totally normal (and temporary) and informed her that such reactions were often induced by pain medication.

As for why she decided to go through with the transition now, Caitlyn said she didn't want to end up on her death bed regretting that she had this secret and never did anything about it. "I would be lying there saying, 'You just blew your entire life. You never dealt with yourself,'" she explained. "And I don't want that to happen."

And now she doesn't have to worry about that anymore, because, thanks to the Vanity Fair cover and her newly-created social media accounts, the whole world had the privilege of meeting Caitlyn today.
