Twin sisters undergo sex change in Shanghai hospital

TWO 25-year-old twin sisters from Yunnan Province in southwest China both received a sex change operation in Shanghai to become male, fulfilling a long-cherished dream.

They are the first twins in China to undergo the gender reassignment surgery, said doctors of the PLA 411 Hospital in Hongkou District.

The hospital said one of the twins has left for home while the other is still recovering from the surgery.

The elder sister had worked hard to earn enough money for her younger sister to get the surgery first. They grew up in a village in Yunnan and craved to become the opposite sex since they were children. Doctors confirmed their transsexual traits before giving them the surgery.

The doctors said the sisters talked and dressed like men. After reading about sex change operations on the Internet, they decided to do the same. Their family was shocked by their plan but gave up when they vowed never to get married as a woman.

The pair need to go home to recover from the first two stages of their operations and raise enough money to fund the last surgery at the Shanghai hospital so they would become men completely.
