How many surgeries have you had?

Recommended Posts

Foxy - I agree!! One of the specialist that I saw for my knee this time told me that the injury that I have (torn ligaments, meniscus) is more common in women than in men. Also, more likely to happen when you're having your period. Weird!

It happened March 4th and the party was the 6th. UGH!!!
We still joke about the party, my friends were doing wheelies with my wheelchair. All in all I just wanted everyone to have fun and stop worrying about me. I think they did, we ran out of bottled beer and only had a little left in the keg =) shots.gif

Surgeries...I am an old pro....And not even 29 years old...

I have had at least 20 Colonoscopies...(what fun)

#1 Surgery Total Colectomy ( complete removal of colon)

#2 Surgery (On Valentine's Day) Emergency Surgery to stop bleeding from #1

#3 J-Pouch Construction Surgery

#4 Temp J-Pouch undo b/c of abcess less than 3 days after coming home from #3

#5 Cyst Removal

#6 Wisdom Teeth Removal

#7 - indefinite Yearly J-pouch inspection (not quite surgery but I do get the good drugs and the pretty gown)

 

So....ummm I think I have had my fair share...

Surgeries... hmmm...

 

Wisdom teeth x 4 = That was when we discovered the servere allergy to codiene - lovely

 

Sinus Surgery - Turbinatectomy x 2

Sinus Surgery - scar band removal from infection during healing from first surgery

Sinus Surgery - Call it a cleaning

 

Lip biopsy - Testing for Sjogrens (local)

Lip Salavery gland abcess removal (the skin healed over one of the dissolvable stitches and abcessed) (local)

Sinus Surgery - Should be final one... new doctor... 10 years later... major removal of scarring and turbinate bone malformation, polyp removal.

 

I am hoping to stop there. :)

I've had three but one was a biggie.

 

On my 6th birthday I had spinal cord surgery (great birthday present huh? I was in the hospital for almost 2 months!). It took me over a year to recover so I think that was even worse than the surgery itself! I do have a pretty cool scar though (according to my guy friends at least), about 6 inches long...they tell everyone that I was really in a knife fight and I won, lol.

 

My second was eye surgery at 8 and third was wisdom teeth out at ~22.

No worries. I was actually born with spina bifida and I had tumours growing on my spine so if they didn't remove them I would have become paralyzed. I'm really lucky to have had great doctors since my back is completely fine now! I know that a lot of people with spina bifida aren't so lucky.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
