I love surgery... by Terri Brand

It may seem to the outsider that I am a hypochondriac... Perhaps.

Let's see...
Over the past 5 years I have undergone 4 major surgeries. Quoi, you ask?

2003- Prognosis: Cauda Equina Syndrome...(apparently, I hear it's rare.)Outcome: Emergency Laminectomy- Said my chances of walking again were 50-50. HAH!

2005- Prognosis: No more babies, hence Outcome: Tubal Ligation.

2006- Prognosis: Appendicitis... Outcome: Appendectomy.
2006-(2 days later) Prognosis: Internal bleeding from said Appendectomy... (they knicked an artery and I nearly hemmoraged to death. Yay Doctors! Outcome: I'm still alive.

And now this year, as a matter of fact, this coming Tuesday, I get to have yet another surgery-
2008- Prognosis- Endometrial Tumors on ovary. Outcome... well, I'll have to let you know when the fat lady sings again.

2009- PLEASE no more damn surgeries.

-Thank you.
