A new study suggests that transgender people who had breast removal surgery did not regret that choice two or more years after their surgery.
In a study of just 139 people, “the median satisfaction score was 5 on a 5-point scale, with higher scores indicating higher satisfaction. The median decisional regret score was 0 on a 100-point scale, with lower scores indicating lower levels of regret.”
Except the study asked 235 people and more than 40% of the patients did not respond, raising a selection bias question. Did people who had regret purposely stay silent?
It is also worth noting that the median age of the respondent was 27.1. This study should NOT be used to imply that the same thing may be true of children under 18 years old who have their breasts removed.
