How many surgeries have you had?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm...no surgeries for me. Never even broke a bone. But I may have my own personal record of unfortunate events. During my pregnancy I saw 4 different doctors for 4 different problems, with appointments 3-4 times every week. I was high risk, so I had an ultrasound every week, I had to have a thyroid biopsy done twice (18 needles in the throat), a 2 day stay in the hospital for blood clots in my lungs, a CAT scan, lung scan, leg ultrasounds, chest x rays, and a breast biopsy. All in a matter of less than 9 months. Fun!!!! And believe it or not, I want more kids after all that!

I have had a few. I broke my nose twice because of cheerleading in high school so I have had two nose surgeries. I had to wear a huge bandage on my nose at school-it was embarrassing. Also, I had my wisdom teeth cut out (really not that bad). I had a boob job or "breast enhancement surgery" as the docs like to call it, haha!

Wow, apparently everyone gets their wisdom teeth out! lol

 

It's interesting to see what procedures people have had done. I was put to sleep for all of my surgeries. I really hope that I am done with these! lol

2 for me:

Wisdom teeth (age 19)

PRK (age 23)

After that experience I'm afraid to have anything else done to me - including Lasik (desperately wanted!)

Wow-that's my wisdom teeth story too....I shudder to remember it.

 

As for Lasik GO FOR IT! It's almost completely painless if your eyes qualify.

 

Unfortunately my eyes did not and I had to have PRK and it was the most horrible pain of my life-way worse than the wisdom teeth. But even though it was horribly painful I would still do it again. That's how worth it having my perfect vision is.

Knowing what they do to your eyes totally freaks me out and I am a contact/glasses wearer.

I did the initial consultation when I was 18 and they didn't want to do it because I had just started taking the pill.

My fiance wants me to get it done with the homebuyer tax credit money next year...he encourages it often...I lose my glasses and complain about the contacts blush2.gif

then another 3 (5th/6th grade)

then getting a chunk of gum cut out so that an adult tooth would grow (7/8th grade)

& getting all 4 impacted wisdom teeth out (age 22)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
