See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A man alleges that he was misdiagnosed and is suing a clinic after undergoing a sex-change operation. He believes that his assessment was insufficient and his operation should never have gone ahead. He alleges that doctors quite happily agreed to go ahead with the sex-change without an in-depth consultation and against the beliefs of other authorities who said the operations should be delayed. Up to 20% of people who undergo a sex-change operation are sorry that they did so. In another case, $43,000 in costs was awarded against a woman who alleges she too was misdiagnosed and had an operation to change her into a man. Medical negligence was never tested in the courts.
