uterus transplant fails

A 26-year-old woman who received America's first uterus transplant developed serious complications, and the uterus had to be removed on Tuesday.

The Cleveland Clinic, where the groundbreaking surgery was performed, made the announcement Wednesday.

Transplant failure usually occurs when the body's immune system rejects the new organ as a foreign object and attacks it.

The first-of-its-kind surgery gave hope to barren women, transgenders and cross-dressers who had hoped to experience the miracle of birth.

The initial Feb. 24 procedure on the patient—who is known only as "Lindsey"—was heralded as a success at a press conference just two days ago. Lindsey is reportedly doing well after having the organ removed, and the clinic declined to elaborate on the nature of her complications; while pathologists investigate the transplant to understand what went wrong.

    Poor woman? I can't imagine what it's like for a woman who wants to conceive, but can't. Ironically I was reading several surrogacy horror stories recently...Parents backed out cuzz child was deformed,,,Surrogate decided to keep child, and gets awarded child support...Story after story. It just sucks all around...Sooooo many who want but can't, yet soooo many who can that don't deserve, want...A mess.

  • che’lint

    The emotional and physical pain this person must be going through ...unimaginable

    SO this lady had a hysterectomy TWICE? AND one inserted? This is just...???? God bless her

    Was a natural woman or nah?

    Interesting. Modern science is fascinating. Hope this chica recovers soon. What is with Auntie's OBSESSION with transgenderism. I doubt any reputable doctor would perform this on a dude.

    WOW....that has to be heartbreaking for the women...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Don't they say when your breath constantly stinks it's because you're backed up? Chip in and get the brother a colonic and some tic tacs.

    Sadly all doctors are not ethical, money talks!

  • Milani

    I can't imagine not being able to have kids, getting my hopes up with a new uterus, but to have my body reject it...it has to be agonizing. I can't judge her for doing this, just hope she finds some peace with whatever decision she makes after this...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Probably a natural woman. Best chance of success.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Somebody leave him some a mouth warsh care package either in his mailbox on his chair or on his damn desk. STAT.

    Kinda like when the dentist hooks the chiren up? Floss. A lil mini mouthwarsh, a toothbrush and paste, and in this case put some gum in it and some tic tacs. Hell. Gone head and make that a full sized mouth warsh.

    Anonymously of course.

  • Fendi

    I thought you had long hair, because of your avi. If you want to maintain a closely cropped style that you can tweezer curl, then a relaxer may be in order. You don't have to get a retouch but every 6-8 weeks. Just make sure it isn't so harsh that it dries your hair out and causes breakage.

    I've had short haircuts before, and when I say they were clean, they were clean. I was at that salon every week. I would even go to a barber and have him get my "sideburns" right. My back was tweezer curled and my top was longer. My first cut was done on the fly, after I saw Diane Von Furstenberg's daughter, Tatiana, cut her hair. I showed the pic to my stylist, and she cut my hair right then and there. It was one of my best short cuts. Just find yourself a good stylist who specializes in short hair, and be patient when it grows out. That in between stage sucks sometimes.

    Wow, I never consider this could be potentially used by transgenders. I had fibroids removed a couple years ago and opted to have a partial hysterectomy, where my uterus was removed, but I still have my ovaries (I won't go into menopause until my natural time). I chose this option because I wanted to be 100 percent sure those darn fibroids won't come back and I have no desires to have children. I'm 41, so I know this for sure. The procedure was done by laparoscopy and you can barely notice the two incisions. Fibroids are the worst!!

  • lovelygamour

    i was reading about this surgery a few months ago . they say that the person only gets one pregnancy and the uterus is to be removed(i think its replanted in the donor). i don't like the sound of this. poor women will now be in danger for their uterus.
    you already have black market organs. can you imagine what a trans person will do to keep from revealing their status. if you ask if they were born male most say no, now. because they were born female but presenting as a boy. this is going to be so dangerous. plus transplants are a touchy operation. a lot fail within a few years if they make it that long. and how many men have birthing hips. so its going to be a surgery to implant, then implant eggs, then C-section-that's too much.
    one doctor said you have to be a woman to get this surgery so that's going to lead to back alley doctors-just like how back alley plastic surgery started because drs were so expensive and wanted psych evals so trans started to use old drs in back alleys and walk up apartments.

  • 80sChild

    I'm going natural too. I haven't had a relaxer since Oct 12, 2015. I was feeling the same way, but told myself to hang in there. My hairstylist showed me how to properly blow dry my hair and press the new growth. I'm doing this because I don't want to big chop (I have long hair and I have a fat head so short hair isn't too cute on me!). I go to my stylist every 6 weeks for a trim, so I'm steadily trimming off the relaxed hair. Plus I decided to use Keracare Naturals for my main products and Pantene Natural conditioner. I'm excited to see my natural hair!

  • nucynu25

    As a teen I had really long hair , the older I got the less I cared abt it .. But you're right I need to find a good hairdresser

  • nucynu25

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    replanted uterus!?!?! So what if they don't give it back cause they like yours better? Do you send the repo man for your uterus?

    Found a new stylist when I moved and she uses Styleseat to book clients. I love it because based on the services, it blocks her calendar so I'm never waiting.

  • lovelygamour

    lol. the doctors said they only get one pregnancy. i thinks its more of an ethics issue. you don't want rich women kidnapping people. however how do they keep them from running off? this has too many moving parts.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Blow drying and pressing will alter the natural texture of your new growth. Sometimes the new growth is actually scab hair, and you may or may not have to do a big chop anyway. Trust me all that blow drying and pressing will do more harm than good in the long run.

  • Tammie Reed

    Feel bad for women who cant have kids! My aunt never could have kids and when she did finally get pregnant, she miscarried twins. She just cant hold them then a few days later, I announced my husband and I were pregnant with our first baby. I felt horrible when I told her but she said she was fine with it. I know so many girls that have thrown their kids away too, had multiple abortions. I always said, babies are a gift from God. xoxo

  • 80sChild

    I will keep that in mind what you've stated. I only blow dry and press it once a week and pin curl it at night. For the summer months (June - Aug), my stylist suggested I do box braids, which I've been researching different styles. I haven't worn braids in about 20 years, so I'm looking forward to that again.

    But doctors can't play God. God decides EVERYTHING. I hope the surgeons understand that.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Just use a really good heat protector before using heat on your hair. I'm wearing box braids now. I suggest you get crochet braids instead. They're more versatile and and a little easier on your hair than box braids. I love the hair ( see pic) she used for her crochet braids. A friend of mine is currently wearing the same style/ hair. It looks so good in person. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d9dea01d8fd3fa75e4277c620914e3e620c21c6ea1f60458bd4c5c94eb98fe20.png

  • leapyearpisces

    Late to the party (the discussion) per usual, :-(, just wanted to suggest to you, IF you decide to get box braids, go the route I did, and get crocheted box braids. Took 1.5 hours TOPS! and better on your hair. Here is a pic of me and my crochet box braids. You buy the hair already braided and it's just crocheted into your hair. Hope this information has been useful. Good luck to you on your journey. :-)

  • leapyearpisces

    I hate to admit, but deep down if I am going to be honest, I am glad it didn't work as well; not for the NATURAL women who desire to have children, but only because I see this as YET ANOTHER TOOL, to obsolete US REAL WOMEN. LET'S be honest, when ( because we know the doctor's will find a way for this to work), this becomes successful, its the transgenders that will have the capital to line up in droves to get this done, only to tell us REAL WOMEN how we are REALLY NOT NEEDED anymore. The line has to be drawn somewhere!!!!! Soon they are going to have to put the NATURAL BORN FEMALE, on the endangered species list. We about to be neck and neck with the black man - ALL OF US WOMEN, don't matter the race. We ALL are slowly being obsoleted. :-(

  • yallcrazy

    Completely agree. For that reason too. They already "think" they're women, now this will have them really thinking they are.

    Exactly! Where have all of the missing young black women gone? I bet most have been used as experimental practice for this exact procedure. The weaker gene culture is at a negative birth rate. So to them it would make sense to get a healthy uterus from the unwanted group, us. It's a shame. You know darn well they didn't come up with this for our benefit, that's for sure.

    Sadly I'm happy it didn't work.
