As I was in the shower this morning, I have my best thoughts there it seems, I came up with an odd thought or two.
What if the people that were undergoing transgender surgery wanted to donate their reproductive organs to others going through the same surgery?
I'm an organ donor on my license and military ID card. If I were to die I would donate any viable organs. I wondered what if on this one too. What if another person were to die and offered the same? Would they take the reproductive organs and donate them to others that need them?
Think about it. Its more than just for reproduction. The reproductive organs produce some hormones that can help ward off other issues in the body. Yes we all realize that they can also cause major problems. But osteoporosis is one thing that women take hormone replacement therapy for prevention of. What if we could just transplant the ovaries of a younger female into the menopausal female so they don't run the risk of other associated cancers by using the synthetic drugs?
If someone had to have a radical hysterectomy at a young age they could have the chance to bear children if transplants were available.
Or maybe if someone that doesn't want children could just donate their ovaries?
I know from my bio ethic class in college that there are problems with these theories. But what if?
How would you feel about accepting that particular gift of life? It would be a gift of life truly because as we all know non functional ovaries can't bring forth life. Egg donation seems to be our only option now with that respect to the bad ovaries.
Sorry for the weird thoughts if I offended anyone. This is just my mind wandering while in the shower again.
On another note. Still in pain. Really bad pain last night. I took it easy when I got home yesterday. We'll see what the scan shows tomorrow and hope for the best. I'm trying to give the medicine a chance and I'll push through the pain. Oh and being a guinea pig for this experiment isn't too bad. Lt.Col.B. was discussing my case at a conference last week when they came up with the idea of the injections. I can't do birth control pills because they cause migraines and mood swings and well in general don't work on shrinking my cysts if last year is any proof to that trial and error. Lt.Col.B. graduated from Stanford with his medical degree. I guess that is a good place.
