I have had one surgery on my arm, and I need knee surgery right now! Because of the economy and not being able to purchase insurance, I am unable to have it done. Social Security denies me, yet I can't stand long enough to work, go figure?

I had my wisdom teeth extracted. Nothing major though. It was kind of fun not feeling my face for a day. I thought I was doing so well eating the yogurt my mom bought me after my surgery when my brother walked in the room and said, "You can feel your face, can you?" and I am like why? He points to my chin so I touch it, and my whole chin was just covered in yogurt...so embarrassing. At least he was kind about it and didn't laugh at or make fun of me.

Oh yeah, I had that surgery 17 years ago. I am now 33. It's true, life becomes more challenging with more struggles, but there are a lot of good things that happen too. That's also part of what makes life interesting. It's the struggles that help you learn more about who you are, help you grow, and learn to appreciate the good things a little more :)

Way too many to count. So tired of being sick and tired! Going through chemo treatments now and them radiation for breast cancer. I also have fibromyalgia and all that goes along with that. I would love to have one day where there is nothing wrong with me. People that have good health should thank God every day!!!

I know what you mean! Just from my cancer treatment since 06, I have had 9 surgeries and about to have another one in January. That doesn't count the other surgeries I had before I was diagnosed with cancer... :/

Im sorry to you both for what you're going through. My mom suffered & died of pancreatic cancer that spread through the bile duct & into the liver. I also lost 3 grandparents to cancer. My mom too would always say she wished and dreamed she could have one day of not being sick and being completely healthy. I also know how it feels to be sick & tired of being sick & tired. For 8 years I've been sick with the most horrible abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea, etc but no one can figure out what's wrong & meanwhile I'm barely functioning & my life is completely on hold. I've had my gallbladder out & I felt better for a month but it came back as bad as before which has doctors all over the country baffled. I totally agree that people should be more thankful to God for their health. You don't realize how blessed you are to have good health until its taken away.

Only had one surgery every and that was a c-section with my son. No biggie. If I ever have another kid it will be via csection again. wouldn't have it any other way. never went into labor never felt a contraction. the whole deliver and recovery was total of 1 hour only.
SavaFiend76

I have had one traditional birth and one C-section, and by far, the traditional birth was easier to recover from. No painful struggling to sit up after C-section, no scar, etc. The C-section was not planned; had to get one after stalled labor (36 hours of contradictions with no prognosis beyond 5 cm).

You're lucky. I'm numb from my bellybutton down past the scar and am still having random, painful "attacks" (I don't know what else to call them) in the area nearly 5 years later. I'm curious... did you have a medical condition (such as gestational diabetes) that required a scheduled c-section or were you "too posh to push"?

By the way, if you're freaked out about contractions, epidurals are fabulous. If I ever go through the hospital birthing process again, I plan on getting an epidural ASAP.

except that if you never actually went into labor than neither you nor your baby were truly ready to deliver... I suppose if you want a csec that's you're choice, but don't put your childs life at risk and schedule out of convenience, just wait until labor signs begin.

Sometimes that's just not possible. Also, most of the time, the doctor will not allow a planned c-section to be schedule more than a week earlier than the due date. In my case, as posted here, I had problems with all three of my pregnancies. My doctor tried to induce my first, to avoid a c-section, as she was afraid she'd get too big. Still ended up with a c-section. The other two were planned as I didn't feel comfortable doing a traditional delivery after c-sections. My kids are happy and healthy and wonderful.

I feel like there should be an option for dental surgery. Like, having a tooth removed is considered surgery. But it's really a complete different thing from say, getting your appendix removed.

There is a huge range of surgeries. Getting tubes in your ears is nothing compared to a serious brain surgery--but they are both considered surgery. So is dental surgery...

My sisters had spilled some needles and thought they had gotten them all picked up. Nope! I stepped on one and it broke with the tip about 1/2 inch deep in my foot. I actually still have it in a cup somewhere in storage haha
