That’s consistent with a story told by a guy on one of those taxicab shows (which was actually interesting until they turned it into a perversion fest). He’d done it and was suicidal because he “no longer had feeling down there.”
There were two female-to-male individuals featured on a British program about transsexuals and both of them had a phalloplasty.
The one “man” had a huge scar on “his” forearm due to the fact that the skin was used to form a penis.
Have fun getting accustomed to having something between your legs that wasn't originally there!
