How Many Surgeries Have You Had

Fri Aug 10, 2007 9:50 am

Its rather embarrassing but I've had 6 surgeries. I'm curious to know if you have had them and which area did it involve.

I've had 3 eyes due to astigmatism and am getting LASIK for my 21st birthday.

Nose surgery due to sinus infection

1 ingrown toe surgery

Share yours in this what will become an interesting thread.

Nose surgery due to sinus infection

What all did they do for your sinus infection? I have sinus troubles (runs in the family) & will probably wind up having surgery down the road. Have you had any problems since?

Only two surgeries thus far- hernia repair after I was born and the other on my left pointer finger when I sliced it open with an exacto knife & almost severed the tendon- had to stitch the tendon.

They took a lazer and zapped some blocked spots. Its called sino sinus. I haven't had any major problems since. Also if you get it done, make sure have a good anesthesiologist. I barfed a heck of alot after. Also, they install packings the size of your pinky so when you sneeze you cant breathe. Other than that the recovery will be in bed for a couple of days.

OK and away we go.

Tubes in the ear and Hernia as a child.


Arthoscopic on the Left knee and Arthoscopic Slap repair surgery on the left Shoulder (Hockey Injuries)

Reconstructive Jaw Surgery (Born with growth deficiency on my bottom jaw)

TMJ surgery resulting from the Jaw surgery.

All of the surgeries were outpatien except for the Jaw surgery which I spent 3 days in the hospital. I was on a liquid diet for 8 weeks which sucked the most.


I am only 24.......Jeeez thats a lot of surgery.

scoped knee (medial collateral pleica and tear), torn rotater cuff, emergency sewing up of throat in hospital (they put me out and sewed me up inside and out so that counts...right?)...then re-entering throat to remove cyst that was closed by first surgery....sewn up again for another emergency....damn....

I'm hoping I'm done with that for a while.

I've had a few minor things done;

Suspect melanoma removed from my nose - luckily malignant
Several stitches on my back after I was bitten by a dog
More stitches after I half cut my finger off with a glass bottle
Surgery to clean-up another finger after I got it a bit too close to a lawnmower

I've also had a few teeth out, but that was 15 years ago and they were only milk teeth.

When I was 6-9 I had two surgeries on each ankle to prevent my feet from turning in. First time they were non sucessful, then they were over corrected as I grew up. When I was 16 I had a fusion of T1-T6 on my back due to scoliosis, and the rods in my back caused my to become paralyzed from the waist down, re did the surgery removed Harrington Rods, wore a "halo" cast for 6 monts.

My major surgery was after I took a puck to the side of my face.

My dentist had told me that my wisdom teeth would have to come out a year earlier. Well, one left molar was in shambles due to the puck. Therefore, my oral surgeon decided to take out the molar and every wisdom tooth I had. It was brutal.

I also had a "sports hernia" operation when I was 9, but I don't remember a lot of it.

Hell no. Kidney Stone Removal Surgery, or Lithotripsy (I think), involves sticking a tube up the wang, into the bladder, and on to the kidney. They then send a laser up and laser the stones, breaking them up, and removing the chucks in the process. Fun? Hardly... But...it was outpatient stuff...

Know how you feel. The needle was big as my pinkie and it hurt like hell. Trust me. The blood spurting really got interesting after he made the incision. I dont wanna go through that again.

My middle finger had stitches and still has a scar from the vacuum cleaner. It was down to the bone and I was 4 but will try to upload a picture of me and my cast today.

Things don't get shoved up dicks! They get shove up urethras and the bad news is you have one too and sometimes things get shoved up it! Yours just lacks an extra accessory at the inner end and is shorter and somewhat more unobtrusively attached at the outer.

My surgeries: Tonsils (twice!) 1950's
Bone cyst removed from upper right arm, with bone graft from hip. 1970. Arm never hurt much, bone graft was very painful and is still an infalliable predictor of rain!
Peritonitis surgery, thats AFTER the appendix bursts and they have to go in vacuum out all the shit from your abdominal cavity before they sew it back up. 1982
Polyp removed from lower bowel. 2006
