    Rollercoaster of the CAMH experience & OHIP coverage

    Dr Brassard hasn't retired. That was his predecessor, Dr Menard who retired and left the clientele to Dr B. Dr BĂ©langer and Dr Brassard work together. It's a shame options for transitional surgeries are limited. I hoped there were more options too. The surgical work and immediate aftercare from Montreal was very good. Better than a lot of other places. Longer term after care (for non Quebecers ) has been difficult for some people. i went to the US for a top surgery that OHiP wouldnt cover and basically lost all the money I spent on it after the surgery failed, and the Dr wouldnt provide what I felt was an a acceptable and fair revision process. I went to a different surgeon in the US Nd had good results with the repair of the first one. We're a small and vulnerable minority, so sometimes we're sidelined or ripped off, and other times treated quite well. We just have to keep doing our best research and sharing what we learn with each other to protect ourselves. Thank you for your article.
  2. Hi Emma, it's my partner's book so it's sort of mine by next of kinnness thank you for the congratulations. It wasn't always a sure thing that my relationship would survive. Best regards, Tara
  3. A new book (June 2015) documents the emotions and events in the life of a couple, after gender dysphoria returns with a vengeance. After suppressing transition for more than a decade, it restarts and there's no stopping it this time. Six surgeries and 4 years later they're still together, happy with each other but faced with having become a gay couple. Their story has been written about in a book recently published. Their local paper had an article talking a little about them as well. A free app lets you read this reasonably priced landmark book.

    My stars! Thank you for letting me know. Now it's public, and I have an explanation for the abysmally low traffic to the blog :-p

    Gentle Reconstruction

    Your world can change immensely in one day. Days, months, and years of trepidation gall away once the switch changes. Decisions, once made and committed to redefine the way we engage with the world. in March 2015, I boarded a train for Montreal to take me to the Centre MĂ©tropolitain de Chirugie where my body world be transformed for the last time. The record of my musings was recorded in this existing blog. If You like what I wrote, please let me know. I may continue at tgguide.
