The transgender, named Lois Cardinal, is a self-proclaimed "sterilized First Nations post-op transsexual" who lives on a native reserve near St. Paul, Alberta. Cardinal, who goes by Duchess Lois on social media, now lives with so much pain that she wants to kill herself with help – but Canada's euthanasia system rejected her request.
"It's taking this psychological burden on me," Cardinal wrote online. "If I'm not able to access proper medical care, I don't want to continue to do this."
Cardinal's vaginoplasty procedure was performed back in 2009, and almost immediately resulted in serious complications. Cardinal says she feels constant pressure, pain, and discomfort in the area around her fake vagina, which was made from his natural penis.
A recent study out of the University of Florida explains that most "neo-vagina" recipients develop these kinds of serious complications, which include pain during intercourse and bladder problems.
"I'm in constant discomfort and pain," the 35-year-old is quoted as saying.
(Related: The New York Times is really angry that increasingly more transgenders regret their decision and now want to "detransition.")
Keep in mind that Canada's health care system is one of the most liberal in the world. There is almost no bizarre procedure, especially trans-related, that it will not perform on the taxpayer dime.
It is probably because Cardinal wants to die after her trans procedure that the Canadian health care system is saying no because it would reflect very badly on the trans industry, which cannot afford to have transgenders with regret making headlines for euthanasia following their procedures.
In order for a neo-vagina to "work," it must be dilated regularly to stop it from collapsing. Cardinal is apparently tired of having to do this, or perhaps it is not working properly to relieve her pain and discomfort, so she simply wants to end it.
Cardinal posted documents online that include her formal request under Canada's medical assistance in dying (MAiD) law that should allow her to die with help. Cardinal's underlying problems, as listed on the documents, include "pain / anxiety related to neo- vagina for gender affirmation."
The first doctor Cardinal consulted referred her to a specialist that ultimately rejected her MAiD request.
"Based on current clinical information and consultations [the patient] does not meet current MAiD criteria," the doctor wrote.
The doctor further revealed that Cardinal was trying to raise money for corrective treatment at a gender clinic in Montreal, and that Cardinal could be "reassessed" for MAiD in the future in the event of a "change in clinical status."
"The patient is aware she can contact me again for her ongoing journey for an assisted death," the practitioner added, stating that he or she was told about the "means available to relieve" Cardinal's suffering.
Under the law, Canada's assisted suicide program allows any adult with a serious and incurable illness, disease, or disability, or who is in an advanced state of irreversible decline, to die with the help of a doctor.
Instead of having her request for assisted suicide granted, Cardinal was prescribed a "numbing cream" for her fake penis, which she says "doesn't work" to relieve the pain and discomfort.
