So is the board consensus that he has had the surgery? Why would he have gone to Thailand to do it? If he had the money surely he'd have had it done at home.He's said several times that he has had "genital surgery," and has said that he required one revision surgery due to complications. He was writing an anonymous blog at the time--he blogged about having scheduled a trip to Thailand, ostensibly for the surgery. But there's a long gap in the blog (4+ months) during the time he said he was going. When he resumes posting, he claims to have had the surgery.
He does NOT discuss any specific details, he didn't make any concurrent blog entries while in Thailand, and he never makes any kind of references to it anymore. It's certainly possible he's lying and is still 100% intact, but most people here think that he did have some kind of surgery. It's possible that the intentionally vague term "genital surgery" refers to an orchiectomy and not full on SRS. I also think there's a possibility that he had SRS that was seriously botched and he's embarrassed to talk about it.
Here is a post where I linked all of Rhys's blog posts I'm referring to. Most of them but not all are linked in the first few pages of this thread.
