When is a patient supposed to be discharged from GIC?

Postby sk8er » Sun May 25, 2014 12:08 pm

Do patients normally complete their surgery and then come back to the GIC for a wrap up appointment once the surgery is all done? Or do they discharge you once they've agreed to refer you for surgery? Do they treat MTFs and FTMs differently in terms of whether they get discharged before or after lower surgery?
There's a common misconception that FTMs don't have a penis. I have 3. The first one is a micro penis, the second one is inside out and the third one is not attached.

Well CX to my knowledge do not discharge you until you are agreeable to that. Or you are happy with the place you are at.

Example many men do not want a phalloplasty so are happy to stop at top surgery and go off and live their lives.

If our treatment is not complete then I see no reason to discharge you. The surgeons may discharge you back to the Gender Clinic pending funds for more expensive bottom surgery being forthcoming or recovery period of time after say top surgery. As the people who do your top surgery are not necessarily the same team who do the bottom. So you may well be discharged to and fro.

I was offered a final visit to a shrink. This I declined on the grounds that I could see no point; and that the caseloads of the shrinks was already immense and I felt that I would just be wasting their time. I have to confess that I also thought I would find it hard not to give the psychiatrist an earful about what I think a two-year real life test is (unnecessary torture); and that this would also not help those coming along behind me.

I contacted the gender surgery nurse about some post op vaginal belleding, and was seen a few weeks later; and had some revision surgery under anaesthetic.

I therefore think that the point of discharge has fuzzy boundaries.
