The story of Sun undergoing gender reassignment surgery at Wolfson Hospital.
About two months ago, they opened a gender adjustment clinic at Wolfson Hospital.
The gender adjustment clinic includes all the changes and medical treatments that allow a person to feel a match between the sense of gender identity and his body.
About a month ago, Sun, who was born as a woman, underwent sex reassignment surgery. From a very young age Sun knew and felt that he was born in the wrong body and that he wanted to be a male.
During a revealing post about Sun’s journey, he talks about the staff of the Rainbow Clinic in Wolfson who accompanied him through the process for several months with professionalism and sensitivity.
Today, about a month after the gender reassignment surgery, Sun drew a painting he donated to the women’s ward at the hospital where a strong dog, Doberman, was seen, harnessed to a harness that leads the cat and helps him find the right path.
The following is the post Sun published:
Hi, my name is Sun and about a month ago I underwent gender reassignment surgery at Wolfson Hospital.
From the age of 11 I already knew and realized that I wanted to be a male, that I was just born in the wrong body. At the time I did not even know that such surgeries could be performed in the country but it was clear to me that I would find a way to be who I really am.
I want to tell anyone who sees this post that it is not an easy procedure, you think what people will say, how the family will accept it and even natural questions like whether it will hurt. Eventually everything dwarfs the sense of freedom I feel now. We live once we have no time to waste.
The staff of the Rainbow Clinic in Wolfson accompanied me through this process for several months and everyone there gave me a sense that I was part of one big family. Everything is done with sensitivity, a smile and professionalism.
About a month ago, the big day arrived … I arrived at the women’s ward, a place where any interaction with the patients is potential for discouragement to choose my condition. To my delight they immediately took care of me in a separate room and the staff were wonderful in their sensitive treatment of me. Prof. Wiener was especially moved by me when he told me how much was done there in the department for my arrival. He apologized in advance if they mistakenly referred to the wrong body, or anything else that would hurt or offend – something that did not happen even once. Everyone was so considerate, sensitive, professional and just got into my heart. I felt like I was part of a family. When I went in for anesthesia surgery, he even told me jokes and made me laugh …
I come out of here the same person I was before but with the right body. I’m more complete now. I’m happy.
Thank you to the dear staffs of Wolfson Hospital, thanks to you I can be who I really am.
In the photo – one of the works I drew and donated to the women’s ward at the hospital. The Doberman symbolizes for me the Rainbow Clinic- he has a guide dog harness and he helps and guides the cat (who is so different from him) on his way to a new future.
