Medical griping (cw: internal medicine, phrasings of body horror?) 

Why is it, that in an age where we can literally rearrange a person's guts and move internal organs from one body to another, that we can't have a simple port on our bodies for medical monitoring and delivery hardware?

Imagine a diabetic with a capsule that gets changed weekly, has a tracker for their CGM to connect, and the ability to release a dose of insulin or a glucose concentrate in case of emergency.

Imagine the kidney transplant recipient with a timed release dosing pod for their anti-rejection meds.

And, if we can keep fair-for-consumers pricing in mind, medical outcomes have room to improve.

I'm just musing this hour.
