Operations


#1

What operations have you had? I’ve had one on my ear and that’s it. I was little and can’t remember much about it.

Anyone had any good ones?


#3

A few minor ops with general anaesthetic on my teeth, a few on my foot and a couple on my eye.

Local anaesthetic on a couple more on my foot and teeth too.


#4

Duodenal ulcer burst. Got that stitched up. Would not recommend the experience.


#5

Tonsils aged four. That’s it so far, thankfully.


#6

I’m having one on Thursday. My first general anaesthetic. Not a serious operation, but I’m not looking forward to it. Going without food, water, coffee, nicotine and alcohol for a whole day is just the start of my concerns.


#7

Good luck!!


#8

Thanks


#10

Plate and pins in one of my ankles after I stumbled out of a first floor window.

Also had a couple of operations on one of my fingers - first one under local (the injections between the finger were terrifying) which didnt work, so had a second one under general, presumably so they could be a bit less delicate without me taking offence. Whatever they did that time sorted it.


#11

Thankfully none. I think I have a bit of a phobia of operations tbh. Probably have to get something in the future, innevitable innit? I’ll be bricking it.

Good luck @colinfilth hope all goes well!

Had surgery to insert (a lot of) pins in my left arm after I broke it in five places and dislocated my elbow. Had another operation to remove the pins a few months afterwards.

Had three operations on my toes to sort my ingrown toenails when I was younger. Local anaesthetic only so I was able to watch and feel lumps being cut out of my toes every time. Really enjoyed that.


#13

Got a 12" titanium rod in one of my legs, right down the middle of the tibia. The surgeons opened up my kneecap and banged it down there with a hammer, apparently. Pretty gnarly.


#14

Ooooooft.


#15

had a cyst removed. when i came around i apologised for having ‘dozed off there for a second’


#16

Right femur slipped out of hip joint socket when i was 11. Doctor insisted it was a trapped nerve so was hobbling around for two weeks which was obv excrutiating. Got two metal pins hammered in and a 6 inch scar on right thigh. Started year 7 on crutches lol

Was supposed to get them removed at 18 (when i stopped growing) still got them and im 27 :confused:


#17

I had a metal plate put into my eye to repair my orbital floor after being punched. Only a 50 min operation I think it was.

They went in via my eye and made no cut to my eyelid or anything. Fuck knows how they got that in there!


#18

Probably up the bum and in from the back


#19

They usually go in through a hole they drill just behind your ear.


#20

#21

#22
