Transgender Seeks Assisted Suicide After Botched Sex-Change Surgery

Lois Cardinal, a 35-year-old indigenous transgender woman, is currently engaged in a bitter confrontation with Canada’s healthcare system after it denied his request for euthanasia, Daily Mail reported.

Cardinal cites ongoing and severe pain from a complication related to a vaginoplasty procedure he underwent in 2009 as his reason for seeking a medically assisted death.

“In 2009, I was rushed into having SRS before I was ready. Resulting in immediate regret and sterilization,” Cardinal said.

Cardinal lives on a native reserve near St. Paul, Alberta, and shared his medical records on social media this week, as an attempt to bring attention to the shortcomings of Canada’s healthcare policies around both euthanasia and gender affirmation surgeries.

“I’m in constant discomfort and pain, and it’s taking this psychological burden on me. If I’m not able to access proper medical care, I don’t want to continue to do this,” Cardinal told the Daily Mail.

Vaginoplasty, a surgical procedure that involves inverting the penis to create a neo-vagina, often leaves recipients suffering from post-operative pain and discomfort.

According to a recent study from the University of Florida, common complications include pain during intercourse and bladder problems.

According to Boston Children’s Hospital, “vaginoplasty requires a lifetime commitment to aftercare. If you have a vaginoplasty, you will initially have to dilate your vagina multiple times a day to keep it open. Eventually, that can be reduced to several times a week, depending on a variety of factors. Your care team will explain in detail how to do this.”

Cardinal formally applied for medical assistance in dying (MAiD) under Canada’s law earlier this year, but his application was rejected.

The note from Cardinal’s doctor noted that he was suffering from ‘pain/anxiety related to neo-vagina for gender affirmation.”

But Canada’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) rejected his request.

After his request was rejected, Cardinal was prescribed a ‘numbing cream’ for his neo-vagina, but according to him, it was ineffective.

Cardinal criticized his rejection as a ‘human rights concern.’

He told Daily Mail that doctors are more interested in finding out what pronouns he uses than easing his pain.

“I’m not getting any better and nor am I experiencing better medical care, or any medical care,” Cardinal said.

“It’s so captured by gender ideologies, that they care more about my pronouns,” he added.

Cardinal is not just concerned about his situation; he is openly critical of the gender-affirmation ideology that led his to undergo his surgery. He has posted videos expressing his disagreement with the current rhetoric of the trans community and believes that an inability to have ‘honest and tough conversations’ is fueling transphobic sentiments.

In a tweet, Cardinal urged the government offices at all levels to reevaluate their stance on “gender-affirming care.

In response to Cardinal’s concerns, a representative from the RCYBC clarified their role and scope of influence in an email communication, stating, “In your email, you have also asked ‘Why isn’t the RCYBC approaching these children with a cultural, holistic, and historical approach before affirming a gender identity?’ It is important to clarify that the mandate of the RCY does not include services or service delivery directly to children and youth. The RCY does not have direct influence over decisions in the community regarding ‘affirming gender identity.’”

    So he went for the full taco. Which means he had it cut off, a pocket built. They have to put a metal rod up in the pocket almost every hour of the day. When you first get the surgery, you have to use the rod like 16 to 18 times a day. As time goes on, you still have to use the rod all day every day, maybe not as many hours, but you have to do it. From what I hear it is very painful. This is a life of pain. Why do they do the rod? They have to use a rod because the body thinks it is an injury and tries to heal itself over and over again. They have what is akin to a permeant injury. I wonder if they taught that in the schools.
