Caitlyn Jenner Talks About "Massive Panic Attack" Following Surgery

NBC

Jenner also joked about boobs and golf in her interview with Matt Lauer.

The second part of Caitlyn Jenner's interview with Today's Matt Lauer aired on Thursday. Jenner talked about dating, female friends and her anxiety she had after her facial-feminization surgery.

"I had a massive panic attack," she told Lauer when discussing the surgery. "I'd never had anything like that in my life. It was, like, so scary. My heart was just pounding and this and that. In my head, when I shut my eyes, it was just like, 'My God, what did you just do?' Because that surgery kind of passed the point of no return."

However, she said that, ever since then, she has not had any regrets.

"No regrets whatsoever,'' said Jenner. "I just want my family to be okay."

"You transition, your whole family goes through this. They've been a blessing in my life, and you don't want anything to hurt them, and you wonder, are you doing the right thing? You know, living your true self. And everybody handles it differently."

Jenner and Lauer played golf during the interview, and, at one point, Jenner stopped and talked about how having boobs helps her with putting. "I'm not trying to encourage you to have a boob job," she jokingly said to Lauer.

Jenner also talked about how her female friends have had an easier time accepting her transition. When Lauer asked her about her love life, she said, "Oh, God, dating," and mentioned that everybody is asking her about it. She said she didn't want to discuss whether or not she's attracted to men or women.

"I want a lot of great friends that I can share my life with, OK?" said Jenner. "And that's important to me. Certainly that love and compassion. I have no idea what that would be in the future. But I'm kind of open to anything.''
