Hello everyone. This is my story.
I am a 37 years old swedish guy who realized something was not normal at the age of 14. Back then, I just had puffy nipples. I remember in the nineth grade when I went into the bathroom in school with a roll of tape. Putting a string of tape on my nipples so they would not show under my T-shirt. I was very athletic so it felt strange that the nipples was so swollen. I was in the "cool gang" if you like in school and didnt think much of it and had several girfriends and was, atleast how I felt it was popular amongst the girls. Sure back then boyfriend/girlfriend relations atleast for me stopped at kissing and petting, meaning one wouldnt have to take off the clothes, and all was fine. Later on, I guess around the age of 17 I stopped all sports activities and started to gain weight and the gynecomastia started to show it self in a way that really started to bother me. But actually, I did not understand what was going on. I might mention that it is only two years ago I realized that my problem was a quite common condition whether it was bigger or smaller. Well anyway, still quite popular, my condition became more problematic since at this age the girls I dated expected more than petting, which would necessitate undressing! Strangely enough I met this quite skinny girl (virgin) who came to like me, and I (virgin) did her. So, our teenage hornyness made me loose my virginity and I dont know but maybe this gave me some strength. Not a day up to this day goes by where I do not hink of my gynecomstia as I now the name for the condition is. At the age of 19 I lost my leg (below the knee) in a motorbike accident. During my convalecence I started to gain even more weight. At the age of 20 I had quite some breasts. The convalecence went really well but sports was something I never restarted, but on the other hand I had a really hard work (sailor!!) My max was 106 kg, I am normal at 82, and acceptable (to me) at 90 kg. Got a kid with a girl and split up, at this time I was at my max (106Kg). Well this wouldnt get to me, time to seek new advetures, but realizing it would be hard at 106 kg. Loosing 28 kg in 5 months and was really slim ( REALLY SLIM). Problem still though, the boobs was still there. Not as bad as when at 106 kg but still bad. At this time I had to struggle with both the leg and the gynecomastia when walking the beaches. But I guess, the first encounter mentioned earlier (skinny girl) had made me meantally stronger. I walked the beaches, slim but with titts. Later on I met my wonderful wife, lost the interest in healthy food and started to gain weight again. result=One legged and fat with man boobs. Horrible! But actually, still I managed to walk the beaches. It was not easy and manytimes I thaught, better stay fat since maybe the boobs will be more accepted. Anyway, now I am at 87 kg ( goal is 82 kg) and my wife has been very supportive, telling me that if I would like an operation ( she knows how I feel about them) just go ahead I will stand by you. At 36 I started to look on the internet and found gynecomstia.org. When I was at sea, my wife told me she saw a documntary about gynecomastia where they showed the results after surgery. This boosted my, well how shall I put it, understanding for that I am not alone and that there is a solution. Today actually they showed a rerun of the show which I saw and was very impressed of the surgery results. This made my mind up. I will do the same. Concerned though that Sweden might not have the same quality of plastic surgeons as in USA. This was the program with I think his name was Merle and some English guy. But anyway, now I will go through with an operation making one of my beach issues hopefully go away. Thanx for the word and Internet making theese forums possible.

assume your surgeon has good experience with gyne?  congratulations on finding the site - another advantage of scandinavia's exceptional international linguistic skills ;) 
* a man is more than a body will ever tell
* if it screws up your life the same, is there really any such thing as "mild" gyne?

It must of been really hard to lose weight with just one leg. Great job. It shows me that losing weight for me, compared to your situation, is a walk in the park and not that hard.
If you have gyne, dont expect not be laughed at.

Just like if you walk into a locker room, you're gonna see some hairy asses and dicks.

Unfortunately for me, both have occured in my life way too many times.
