      You didn't. If you did, you would know. The pain had me in tears.
      I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png

        OH someone else that feels my pain. I just had surgery 6 months ago to repair mine. Not fun eh!? I spent 11 months before having surgery hobbling and limping around because I couldn't straighten my knee all the way. Did this happen to you?

          Interesting thread Lisa!

          Here's mine:

          Age 4 or 5 (can't remember) - Surgery to put tubes in my ears as I was getting ear infections all the time, they stopped after the surgery.

          Age 8 - Was supposed to have my appendix removed as I had an attack but I felt better before they could perform the surgery so they sent me home.

          Age 23 - Lasik eye surgery

          Age 24 - All four wisdom teeth removed

          That's all of mine, I'm pretty sure!

            Well I have only had 1 and it was at the worst time ever. I went to work on a Wed. with abdominal pain only to be sent home at noon, at the ER by 2 and CAT scan at 9. The PA comes in and tells me I have acute apendicitis. I said okay, give me some pills and let me out of here. For those who know, you can't do that. Oops =)

            So I had to have emeregency appendectomy early Thursday morning at 1 am and my ENGAGEMENT party was Friday at 7:30 UGH!!! So much for dancing lessons.

            75 people, we couldn't cancel but I made it in a wheel chair and it was one party we'll never forget.

            Better now then in Mexico for wedding =)

              Ive had 4

              16- I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled

              21- I had knee surgery, i tour my meniscus, and a few other things.

              23- I knocked my two fron teeth out, not really surgery, but they semi knocked me out to put in fake ones

              25- I had a cyst removed from my breat.

              I wish that would be all, but I will have to have my teeth replaced about every 7 years.

                    Ok, I think I've got all of you beat - which is not a good thing in this case! LOL Actually... let's see if I can even keep track!!

                    here goes nothin'....

                    Age Newborn - 12 yrs = 12 surgeries; 1 surgery/year (avg.) to repair cleft lip & palate
                    15 yrs old = 1 final surgery for cosmetic reasons (related to above)
                    Age 2 = Bladder Surgery
                    Age ? = Tubes in ears
                    Age ? = Surgery to repair holes in eardrums (guess this was related to tubes?)
                    Age 10 = Appendectomy
                    Age 21 = Lasik
                    Age 24 = 3 Wisdom teeth removed, 1 dry socket resulted; complications (medicated gauze was left in the dry socket for a MONTH!!! major infection)
                    Age 25 = Cavitation surgery to remove jawbone tissue infection

                    So.... that's what, 20 surgeries (that I can remember/list) in only 26 years... no wonder my blood pressure SKYROCKETS at the doc's office... I've been totally traumatized by doctors/surgeries!!
