TikToker nearly died after undergoing 'affirming' double mastectomy from Miami Dr Sidhbh Gallagher

A former patient of the Yeet the Teets surgeon has told the harrowing story of life-threatening complications that led to having over half a foot of dead rotting tissue removed following a "gender-affirming" bilateral mastectomy.

A trans-identified female has told the harrowing story of life-threatening complications that led to having over half a foot of dead rotting tissue removed following a bilateral mastectomy performed by Dr. Sidhbh Gallagher, the celebrity surgeon who advertises her “gender-affirming” services on social media to impressionable adolescents and who has apparently opted out of malpractice insurance as a crafty way to ensure no one can sue her.

Rylan, a trans-identified female from Ohio, told the graphic tale of how Gallagher ignored the excruciating pain and alarming signs of infection on Tiktok and in more detail in an article published on Medium which also contains extremely graphic photographs of the incision splitting open and the tissue beginning to rot. Rylan says these photographs were sent to Gallagher who dismissed them, saying it was a normal part of the healing process. 

The young trans-identified female had chosen to fly to Florida to have the surgery because Gallagher is one of the only surgeons who does not have a BMI cap and also because she offers a “drainless” procedure.

Mastectomies usually involve the insertion of drains to remove the blood, pus, and excess fluids that can build up in the week following the invasive procedure, and due to the seriousness of the surgery, most surgeons will require trans-identified females to be of a healthy weight to reduce the risk of complications. Neither of these precautions appear to be important to the Yeet the Teets celebrity gender-affirming surgeon.

For Rylan, the nightmare started on day 4 post-op, when a hematoma appeared and the wound started leaking blood, which Gallagher dismissed as “just bruising.” It was suggested that the patient’s weight was to blame, and true to form, the medical team even had a cutesy name for it: a “blowhole,” and they joked that it was Rylan’s "period."

After flying home in agony and bleeding through clothes on the plane, Rylan spent days bed-ridden before ending up in the ER after a blood clot the size of a golf ball fell out of the wound.

“I was splitting open and, within days, those two holes would both become gaping abscesses,” said Rylan, who describes being “exhausted and in unspeakable pain.”

Photographs were sent of the incision and the clot, and Gallagher again replied that it was normal and there was “no need for the ER.”

After another night of agonizing pain, Rylan woke to a frightening sight.

“I saw that the hole in my incision had collapsed into a hollow, black cavity. Brown and dark yellow tissue were spilling slightly out of it. It had a putrid smell,” recalls Rylan, who sent a photograph of this terrifying change to Gallagher, knowing deep down that she couldn’t be trusted. Gallagher’s response was: “It’s looking good - not infected,” and she advised putting “some antibiotic cream on the open area.”

Thankfully, Rylan was able to get an appointment with another “top surgeon” who saw the signs of infection immediately, put the patient on a course of antibiotics, and scheduled an emergency surgery to fix the mess that Gallagher, who calls herself Dr. Teetus Deletus on social media, had created.

In the surgery 3 days later, over half a foot of Rylan’s left side had to be removed as it had been killed by a bacteria “that has a high mortality rate.” 

“When I saw the photo of what they removed, it dawned on me what would’ve happened if I’d listened to Dr. Gallagher,” said Rylan.

Rylan lived, but the healing process has been difficult. Gallagher hasn’t checked in once with the patient she almost killed, and Rylan doesn’t think she ever will.

"In the wise words of the surgeon who saved my life, ‘she doesn’t give a sh*t about you,'" wrote Rylan.

But seeking advice from a medical malpractice lawyer revealed some shocking information. Gallagher has apparently opted out of malpractice insurance, making suing her almost impossible. Most lawyers will be reluctant to take on a case against an uninsured defendant as there would likely be no means for them to collect their fee. Rylan was told that Gallagher likely uses this loophole deliberately.

Rylan states at the end of the devastating story that despite what happened, Rylan feels no regret about having top surgery, just about choosing Dr. Gallagher. Rylan is still trans-identified, and doesn’t want to do harm to the transgender community, but feels speaking out about what Dr. Gallagher did will hopefully save other young, gender-confused females from seeking out her services.
