    Then that sucker stays in no matter how dangerous it is to keep it. On the plus side if prolapse does happen it will be easy to extract.

      PM me if I do.

      Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

        Have to wrangle too.

         I'm over six feet tall and was frequently misidentified as an MTF when I identified as female.

        Last year I needed an implant out that was wreaking havoc on me, at one Dr. Not only did the nurse never call me back, she stood in the records room and stared at me though,  she or someone there called the county (to complain?) and told my social worker I was an MTF.

        I also am pan sexual so they get discombobulated when I discuss sexual partners.

        I'm not really sure there is much hope in finding a good dr for someone like me.

          system. I we lived close to each other I would volunteer. I don't put up with that shit you are describing at all.

          Find yourself a female buddy that has the ovarios to stick up for you if need be. Medical personnel are less likely to misbehave if there is a witness. And she would be both moral support but also a witness.

          Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
