    There are a lot of knee & teeth problems! Seems like those the most common things people have surgery on.

      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 =)

              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)

                  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.
