How many surgeries have you had?
Posted 23 June 2009 - 06:50 PM
Surgery #1 - I was tongue-tied when I was little so they had to cut the part that holds your tongue down. I think I was about 2 or 3.
Surgery #2 - I was 16 and snored like a mother, so they removed my tonsils and adnoids. I snore no more...well barely! lol
Surgery #3 - I was 17 and tore the ACL ligament in my right knee. Had surgery to repair this.
Surgery #4 - I was around 20 and had my 4 wisdom teeth removed. FUN - NOT!! Man did I ever look like a chipmunk!
Surgery #5 - I was 25 and had to have my gall bladder removed. I never had problems with it until I lost 75lbs. The doc said it was because I lost weight. Go figure, you do something healthy for yourself and it causes other problems!
and finally Surgery #6 (last nov) - I was 29. This time I tore a ligament and my meniscus in my left knee. Again, surgery to repair this!
So that's a total of 6 surgeries before I was 30. Hmmm, maybe that is a lot! lol What about you guys? Can anyone beat that?! lol

I had to have my sinuses(sp) lifted (not sure if its what you had jerseykitten) it was a little painful but once my medicine kicked in it was fine.
They were both under local anesthesia(sp?)
Other than that nothing, knock on wood!!!

My dentist told me 3 years ago that I need all 4 wisdom teeth out, but I haven't been brave enough to do it!

2. wisdom teeth removal x4 ~18
3. re-do of adenoidectomy ~24ish
4. IDET procedure on L4-L5 (insert needle into lumbar spine & basically melt the outer layer of the disc to repair herniated discs). Not exactly surgery but not fun ~26

Wisdom teeth - all 4, got dry socket. I was 19 and told them to knock me out.
I told them I was allergic to opium based drugs and they gave me Tylenol 3. I was with it enough to mumble that I was allergic. They then gave me Darvocet. Again, I'm allergic!!! dumb .
After that experience I'm afraid to have anything else done to me - including Lasik (desperately wanted!)
