Those 10 days do not represent his whole life if you credit his "How am I not Trip?" argument. The entirety of his personal experience consists of 37 years of being Trip and 10 days of being Sim. To undergo the operation is to sacrifice the 10 days in order to preserve the 37 years. That sounds like a bargain to me.
