So I was born intersex as a hermaphrodite, and they did surgery at birth (cut out my womb and sewed me up). And my parents raised me as a boy. I learned this later in life, and started hrt which has saved my life.
I'm starting to really want surgery to help put me back together, but I dont want to take away from what I have. I study yoga and eastern medicine and believe that I am capable of regrowing my uterus, but if the option for a uterus transplant is possible then I would like that too.
Please, if you know anyone who would do this unique surgery for me, that would help me so much. My research into uterine transplants shows that this surgery costs over $100,000, and that is why I set my goal so high. I just want to be whole again.
I also wish for a scholarship or fund or grant or donor or some way to help pay for this.. im saving up and I have $5000 to my name. I just got on HMSA (I'm a resident of Hawai'i) so I believe I have some unknown level of insurance coverage. I've never been very wealthy and I come from an abusive household, so I can't rely on my parents at all. I have been researching the grants available and I will post here when I apply and if I get accepted (:
It would change my life if someone could help put me in touch personally with a doctor who can help, and/or a way to get financial support so I can do this next year when I turn 25. I spent the last 2 decades suicidal(since I was 5 years old) but today I finally have hope. Living with my tribe here in Hawai'i has done a miracle for my mental health, and I have learned that living in community has healed my heart. Thank you everyone; I believe in you! ❤ thanks for reading and please know I love you all ❤ and I wish you many blessings. I believe in my heart of hearts that life can get better.
Mahalo piha! (I'm not native Hawai'ian but I love everyone here and the language and it is my honor to be here, so I say thanks)
