Record of Surgeries
« on: April 21, 2016, 08:53:52 PM »
We are a forum devoted to Diabetes, but we do talk of issues relating to general health. Most of us are past our middle age and surely we must have been through some surgery/ies, major or minor. It would be nice to have them on record, for others to consider prior to making responses.

I'll go first.

I developed a cyst on my thyroid when I was in my 30s, and one lobe of the gland was removed. It's the only surgery I've ever had.

Not much for me, mostly I'd say just procedures:

- tonsillectomy, age 23
- large hematoma drained at left quadricep (hit-and run driver), age 35
- prostate (TURP), age 64
- cataracts in both eyes (very good procedure that I recommend), age 65

Actually, I guess all but the cataracts involved some notable pain.

It's interesting that surgeons never seem to quite prepare one for the post-op pain. Nevertheless, a moment's reflection is sufficient reminder that any such intrusion is painful.

Tonsillectomy, age 5

Vasectomy at age 28 (After third child was born)

Bone spur taken of foot age 48

Cataracts' taken out of both eyes with corrective lens placed in both eyes (age 53 for one, and 55 for the other)...now have 20/18 vision without glasses...YAHOO!

So far they have only taken things out (except maybe my eyes), nothing new added yet!?
