Detransitioner files $1M lawsuit against doctors for botched mastectomy that left her ‘permanently disfigured’
Lawsuit says doctors ‘coerced’ Soren Aldaco into identifying as transgender and pushed her into a double mastectomy that left her permanently disfigured
Aldaco, who is autistic, said she was battling depression and anxiety as a teenager when she was hospitalized with a manic episode at 15. After a short meeting with a psychiatrist there, Aldaco said she was “coerced” into coming out as transgender. Two years later, Aldaco connected with Del Scott Perry, a nurse practitioner with Texas Health Physicians Group at a transgender support group. After sharing her mental health struggles and identity confusion with Perry, Aldaco said the nurse practitioner encouraged her to begin medically transitioning and wrote her prescriptions for “an outrageously large off-label dosage” of testosterone, the suit alleges.
At the age of 19, Aldaco underwent a double mastectomy at the Crane Clinic in Austin which left her with “horrible post-surgical complications” and found her “nipples literally peeling off of her chest,” according to the 29-page complaint. When she reached out to her surgeons over concerns that something was wrong, Aldaco says she was told that her complications were normal “despite sending graphic pictures of the pools of blood forming subcutaneously within her torso.”

Sometimes the compassionate response is one which sets firm boundaries. At the end of the day you need to be able to discern between enabling and helping – that you giving me access to certain drugs – that you just giving me referrals to whomever I asked for didn’t actually help me heal – it affirmed me in my delusion.Soren Aldaco
