Regret & surgery

New Study Confirms Extremely Low Regret Rates for Gender-Affirming Surgery

This study validates the results of previous research on regret rates. For instance, a 2022 Lancet study done in the Netherlands found that 98% of trans youth who went through gender-affirming healthcare continue their treatment into adulthood.

The 0.3% regret rate of our newest study is much smaller compared to other, common yet serious surgeries. Interestingly, knee replacement surgery has a dissatisfactory rate of 6-30%. The rate is up to 100 times that of gender-affirming surgery. However, knee replacement surgery does not go through the same scrutiny as trans healthcare does.

0.3% regret rate does not sound realistic. There's probably more to learn reading Mr. Singal https://twitter.com/jessesingal/status/1629593678950932480

Yeah, 0.3% sounds low, on the other hand Singal is a hateful hack with an axe to grind who's been perverting "stats" for a long time.

MeFi thread pointing to What went wrong at the New York Times? and So, a Top Guardian Editor Was Married to the Founder of Mumsnet.

When you look at how much energy the mainstream puts into propping up the bigots, suddenly a .3% regret rate doesn't actually look that impossible.

I don't think you'll be able to back up the "Singal is a hateful hack with an axe to grind who's been perverting "stats" for a long time". But if you try, I hope to find some time to check out your links.

Singal is a stickler, understands the scientific method and I quite like that https://jessesingal.substack.c...ientific-transparency-researcher
