#2018 was a rough year in my life. I experienced a major complication with my gender confirmation surgery and wound up back in the OR one week after the initial procedure. It was a tough journey, but experiences like that one only make us stronger in the end. Though it can be hard at times, a positive mindset and the support of those around you can help you conquer any challenge. Thank you to all my fans who have supported me throughout the years! Love you all, this video is for you!💕#decadechallenge

She’s been preparing for what could be her third and final procedure. Jazz’s parents, Jeanette and Greg, are feeling positive that things will go smoother this time around. Bowers and Ting try to get the bottom of what went wrong.

“She had a very incredible first surgery – it went seemingly very well, but there were problems,” Bowers said. “And that prompted a second surgery, which I was not a part of, unfortunately.”

Bowers admits that Jazz’s surgery was unique. They never experienced these types of complications in previous patients. But they also don’t have the vast experience on doing gender confirmation surgeries. The doctors didn’t expect Jazz to experience such serious complications.
