Thank You Winners for reading this.
In order for a Trans Gurl to be approved for surgery, she is required to see 2 Psychiatrists.
These sessions are expensive, and generally not rebatable.
First approval needs to be given, before the gurl can see the 2nd.
The 2nd approval must be given within 3 months of Surgery Date.
Many people still assume the Penis (Birth Defect BD) is cut off, it used to be.
However, today, Medical Technology has advanced.
I won’t go into the gorry details.
The Penis is inverted to create a Neo-Vagina.
Immediately after surgery, its bed rest for several days, with packing and dressings changed regulary.
After bed rest over, twice daily salt baths begin.
This assists healing.
The gurl is required to dilate several times per day. This is to stop the cavity from closing.
Recovery is 3-6 months, dependant on the patient.
Cost of the surgery is fully paid in advance by the patient.
My chosen Surgeon, here in Melbourne, will not operate on uninsured patients.
Health Insurance Cover per month is $180. With a waiting period of 12 months continued coverage.
The patient needs around $25,000 just for the Surgery, this does not include the incidentals required pre and post surgery.
If a patient needs to travel to Melbourne, they need costs for Accommodation, Transport, Food/Beverages, Spending $$$$$.
Add another $10,000-$15,000.
Costs vary depending on a patients needs.
Part of the cost may be claimable, but not always.
Contrary to belief: A post-op Trans Gurl is infertile, and sometimes unable to self lubricate.
Not every gurl has surgery to be more intimate with others.
Many never indulge in intimacy, they want their outsides to match their insides and having surgery allows them to be legally recognised as their preferred gender.
Many businesses will not observe a Trans Gurl as a female if she still has her BD, which is unfair, but too many people refuse to accept, Transgenders exist.
When MCC is established, $1 AUD, per candle bought,will be set aside towards partly funding, as a loan to gurls struggling, for their surgeries.
