A new study on the side effects of transgender sex change surgeries has revealed, once again, that we are currently in the midst of the greatest medical scandal of the past several centuries. Conducted by researchers at the University of Florida and the health non-profit Brooks Rehabilitation, the study found that 81% of those who had undergone sex change surgeries in the past five years reported experiencing pain simply from normal movement in the weeks and months that followed — and that many other side effects are manifesting themselves as well.
This comes as no surprise to those of us who have been listening to the testimony of both de-transitioners such as Chloe Cole as well as others who have gone under the knife such as Scott Newgent (who described horrifying post-op experiences on my podcast recently). Dr. Meryl Alappattu, a physiotherapy professor at the University of Florida, spoke about her provisional findings in a private online workshop reported on by the Daily Mail. The full report will be released later in 2023, and the reported findings are horrifying. The study found that those who got sex change surgeries experienced bladder problems, pain during intercourse, and other significant issues.
“There is a high percentage reporting musculoskeletal pain, difficulty moving, and pelvic floor dysfunction,” Alappattu stated. “In terms of getting information related to the efficacy of these types of treatment … we still have a lot of work to do. As the Daily Mail noted:
Surgically altering male and female genitals to match those of the opposite sex — known as vaginoplasties and phalloplasties — are widely understood to be tough and problematic procedures. Women who transition to become men may opt to have a penis constructed from tissue extracted from their arms, although this procedure is also complex, and the result is still markedly different to a biological penis. Removing the breasts of female-to-male transitioners is simpler, but can also lead to pain, infections, and such problems as stitches bursting apart, particularly on overweight patients.
That’s not quite accurate — at least in North America. So-called “gender affirming care” is not described as “tough and problematic,” but a simple and effective fix to gender dysphoria that cannot be questioned by anyone in the medical field, politics, or academia. Doing so puts careers at risk, which is why there has been no public discussion on these treatments in Canada whatsoever.
The researchers studied 21 people identifying as non-binary or transgender between the ages of 20 and 70 who had gone under the knife in the past five years. Most of those participating in the study had undergone vaginoplasties or mastectomies. They found that 57% found sexual intercourse painful; 81% experienced acute pain in their shoulders, pelvis, chest, groin, and lower back (sometimes even years after the procedures); and 29% suffered from “urinary incontinence or a frequent and urgent need to go to the bathroom.”
