    Um, let’s see… I had wrist surgery when I was in high school, to correct a condition called DeQuerovein’s Syndrome. I don’t know if that’s how it’s spelled, but it was bizarre. I had a bunch of tendons stuffed inside a ‘sheath’ in my wrist, when only one or two were supposed to be in there. The surgery cut the sheath and released the tendons, so they wouldn’t have pressure on them.

    Then, when I was, oh, 32, I had emergency gall bladder surgery. Had no clue before that, that there was a problem.

    Finally, when I was 33, I had the best surgery ever… the C-section that gave me Josh.

    I had two lumps removed from my breast at a very early age. I had pre-cancer of the uterus at 24 and I had my tubes tied. Pretty minor stuff.

    tonsils out when I was 6 (I think) After Hunter was born, 6 weeks after they found I still had some placenta still inside me. So I had to have a D&C done to clean everything out. Then around March of this year had my wisdom teeth out. And most recent gall bladder around May I think.

    I have had two sugeries on my wrist to try and repair the nerve damage. When I was younger I had my adnoids removed and tubes put in, also I had my wisdom teeth removed when I was 16.

  5. SKL says:

    No, not unless you count a colonoscopy that was aborted early in the process. Never had anyone take a knife to my body.

    Oh wait a minute, does laser eye surgery count?

    • Joy says:

      I think it does. Did that bother you?

      • SKL says:

        Did the laser surgery bother me? At the time I didn’t feel a thing. It was a bit scary because I was awake, and I had to force myself to keep looking straight ahead despite all that was going on. When the numbing drops wore off, one of my eyes healed in no time (by the next morning), but the other one was a little injured so it took maybe half a week to feel good again. I had dry eye for a while, which I managed with eye drops. Overall, it was totally worth it and I’d do it again.

        Did the aborted colonoscopy bother me? Yes! I didn’t feel a thing (that I was conscious of), but boy was I pissed when I found out they stopped it AND overcharged me AND billed it wrong to the insurance, so I had to fight, fight, fight just to pay “only” $400 out of my pocket for NOTHING. UGH! Of course wisdom says I should try again, since I have a family history of colon cancer. But I won’t until I’m 50 or have some sort of scare. And next time I’m getting knocked out and they had better finish the job.

        I’ve never been knocked out, though. I am so sensitive to drugs, who knows how I’ll react if they give me anaesthesia?

        I always wished I’d had lasik. It worked for everyone I know. My retina’s made this surgery not an option for me.

    1. Right side hernia.
    2. Left side vericose seal.
    3. Lacerated flexor tendon of the right great toe.
    4. Comminuted fracture of the tibia, fibula involving the right ankle.
    5. Closed reduction of the wright wrist.
    6. Thyroidectomy.
    7. Fundoplycation.
    8…. I thought there were ten but I’m drawing a blank.

    My favorite place in the hospital is the recovery room. You can pretty much get away with saying or doing anything in there. 😉

  7. Vicki says:

    I had my tubes tied and a lump removed…
    I also had my wisdom teeth pulled but back then it was not done by surgery they just did it in the dentist office yank, pull, tug, done. 2 at a time. (we were tougher back then!!!) LOL

    • Joy says:

      We were Vicki!! LOL!! That’s why I didn’t count it at first. I had all 4 of mine down plus a molar that was bad AND got dry socket from smoking!! That sucked.

  8. Ellen says:

    3 times eye surgery, my tubes tied, my wisdom teeth, a meniscus removed, that’s it, I think.
    Oh, and I had a lung blade infection, but they thought it was a pulmonary embolism, so I had a pulmonary catheterization and more tests which were horrible. I was in tears because I was in so much pain, and the nurses were not really nice, actually they were pretty cold hearten. It started at work, a lot of pain that got worse and worse. I could not sit down and at one point, my manager dialed 911 (112 in the Netherlands). The ambulance came and they drove me with siren and lights to the hospital. After blood exam and other tests, they said they found stuff in my blood that indicated it was an embolism and that it was life threatening. That was scary. They gave me some injections in my tigh and I was sent to a hospital room. That evening and the next day the tests started and the results were luckily not that bad. It did took me 2 months to recover from the infection. And not to mention I was in a divorce at that time, so no, not the best time of my life. But every is fine now 🙂

    My wisdom teeth at 18 and my gallbladder removed in March of this year. I never want surgery again!!!!

  10. Nikki says:

    I had a partial hysterectomy, I think I was 25. I can’t remember now. I had some cosmetic surgery also, about 5 years ago.

  11. Phyllis says:

    Tonsils out when I was 10, Tubes lasered (rather than tied) at 38, and surgery to fix the shattered bones in my left leg 4 yrs. ago.
