Jazz Jennings thought she was one step closer to success when she first underwent gender confirmations surgery. Unfortunately, it was just the start of a long battle. Recently, Jazz had her third surgery and she was hoping that it would be the last time she would have to go under the knife. 

But right after the surgery was over, the doctors informed the family that there might be a need for a fourth surgery in the future. Jazz was disappointed but she hoped that the fourth surgery would not be anytime soon.

Just one month after she underwent her third surgery, Jazz felt like her vagina did not look the way it should. Terrified of what might happen next, Jazz decided to call her mother, Jeanette Jennings. Jeanette decided to click a picture and send it to the doctor.

After examining the picture, the doctor informed Jazz that it looked like there was a lump that was growing near what should be the urethra. The doctor added that it might be the fluid that is getting collected. She was further told that she will have to have another surgery. 

Jazz stated that she felt defeated upon hearing that she will have to have another surgery. Meanwhile, Jazz's father Greg Jennings was not happy to hear that she will have to undergo another surgery. He said that it would be better to wait until Jazz finished her studies to make sure that the surgery does not hinder her education. 

He was particular about Jazz focusing on her studies without letting anything hinder that. While Jeanette agreed, they both feared and wondered what was in store for Jazz. All this while Jazz knew that she just wanted to live like a normal teenager and have a normal life. 

'I am Jazz' airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on TLC.
