    Tell us about your surgery!

    Well, we've all lived long enough to have had a few dates with the scalpel....tell us about yours! On Monday, I had a lipoma cut out of my back under local anesthesia. Not very glamourous I admit. Other than that I had three hernias repaired at once when I was about 23 years old....come to think of it...that was pretty damn boring too...oh well....

    Holy Crap! We've become the old geezers sitting in rocking chairs on the porch at family reunions.

    Well, got a few minutes...

    Lets see???? When I was 15 I had my right kidney removed
    Surgery on right foot to remove a broken off sewing needle at the age of 18 (don't ask how I did this!)
    Tubaligation (tubes tied) at the age of 24
    Gallblader removed around the age of 35
    Abdominal Surgery to remove a large cyst from my right ovary at about the age of 37
    Oh and my most recent was Gasric Bypass just this past June.

    Hmmm...it might be easier to count the organs I have left

    Sheesh! You all sound like the congregation on Sunday when I ask; "Are there any prayer concerns this morning?" Sometimes I will hear something like this: "Please pray for Tiny Jones, my third cousin's neighbor's friend, living at the South Pole research station. Tiny has a hang nail and they are runing low on Neosporin and it's winter and they are worried about resupplying because the weather is frightful and the plane's skis might freeze to the runway and flying Neosporin from Chile to the Soth Pole is dangerous and really drives up the cost of a 1 oz. tube but Tiny really needs it because it's the worse hang nail anyone has ever seen at the South Pole."

    A year ago, September I had a by-pass surgery to remove an aneurysm in my right leg. I had a series of five incissions made from my upper groin to halfway down my calf. They replaced (grafted) a long section of my popliteal artery. ...damn I hate when that happens...that'll leave a scar.

    I didn't need much more incentive to start riding the bike.

    I've had my spirit removed by the passing of summer and the deepening of fall towards winter. It was painful, and I'm still trying to recover. Physical therapy seems to help, but requires great effort on my part. I've been told that it will be five to six months before I completely recover. And, that this is likely to happen again.

    YES !

    Since my favorite wife works in a hospital, I hear all the anatomical horror stories I need. Like Dnvr, I'll stay away from this thread...

    mine was a rotor cuff surgery completed in May 2003. Of course bike related. I hated the post surgery therapy.

    It would take a short story to tell all of mine. I have 31 surgical procedures. I will list the most notable:

    7 amputations

    many bypasses on both legs

    Kidney/pancreas transplant

    2 surgeries right knee (surgeon refused to rebuild knee)

    quad bypass heart

    two vetrectomies

    surgery to install peritoneal catheter that almost killed me. (too long and too gross to tell)

    fistula in left arm

    lump removed from left chest

    tonsils/adenoids removed

    two cataract surgeries (one went bad)

    I joke with close friends about being the half million dollar man!!
