OBGYN

My biggest fear is the gynecologist.  Sure, I've got a lot of little fears, like bugs and other creepy crawlies, but this is a big one.  I have a vague idea of what goes on, and it's horrifying.  I think I need one for both T and the hystorectomy.  

hnnh... hnhnhnhnhnhnnnnn  D:  I do not like this idea.  I don't know what I'm gonna do with this.  I want to start T this summer.  I do, relaly.  I want ot be done transitioning before I graduate college.  I know I'll be happy and it'll be naught but a bad dream in a few months, but I'm terrified about the very thought of it.

Hey Ry! I think you don't have much to worry about the gynae until after you transition and start your life as a male in the world, that's when the real trouble with the gynaes start. The documentary Southern Comfort really upset me in that respect. It was terrible how they allowed the transman to die of cancer without treatment because the gynaes were unwilling for him to be their patient.

Depending on what you do, I thought you got most of hte organs gynos look at removed. o_O what's left to get cancer?

Some people decide to leave their organs in.

Oh, right. That would suck. O_O And apparently T makes it more likely for the organs to get cancer, so that's just idiotic.

>_< Stuff like this is why I don't trust doctors. They're human and people treat them like they're unbelievably kind and have all the answers. Not like I'm saying don't trust them for no reason. I'm just sayin' there've been some doctor and nurse serial killers.
