Bruce Jenner is planning to have surgery over the summer, according to a new report. The former Olympian has been thinking long and hard about having gender reassignment surgery, and sources say that he has finally set a date. According to the New York Daily News, Bruce is back on track with his routine doctor’s visits, and his hormone therapy after he was involved in a car accident that left one person dead.
“It was recently suggested that Bruce increase the visits to twice weekly, however, to cope with the aftermath of the fatal crash. The therapy was required by the doctor that will be performing Bruce’s sex change operation. And it has helped Bruce tremendously,” shared a source.
Bruce Jenner having surgery in the summer would correspond with the timeline of his reality show, which is set to follow him on his journey of transformation. According to Star Pulse, Bruce has been very emotional about his decision to transform, and the situation with the car accident has made him even more sensitive. Sources say that he has been leaning on his family, and on his ex-wife, Kris Jenner, to get him through. His family has been quite the support system through all of this, and it’s clear to see that Bruce is in a better place because of that.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bruce is going to come out officially on the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Rumor has it that Bruce will ask his family to call him by a different name, and will have this conversation with them whilst cameras are rolling. He will also ask his family to respect his journey, and encourage them to tell the media that he’s in a “good place.” Bruce has made it clear that he wants this part of his life expressed to the public on his terms.
Bruce Jenner’s summer surgery will be the last big step in his transition. He has slowly been changing his appearance (from his long hair to his painted finger nails), and is ready to take it all the way. He hopes that the public will respect his decision to do this, and that by sharing this information with the world, he will feel better not having the secret inside anymore.
