Quote of the day

"I saw a surgeon once. He took out my appendix, or maybe my gall bladder. Shoot... It could have been my tonsils... or an ingrown toenail... anyway, you know, it was one of those things."

I saw a surgeon once. It was in a steakhouse. If he cuts people the way he cut a $50+ piece of prime Kobe beef I'm going to start asking my neurologist if he does hangnails and gallbladders.

stay safe.

Probably an elderly patient . I surmise this from the laid back approach that many elderly people take regarding health issues. They know they have attained the biblical three score plus ten, so little difference does it matter beyond that. I have seen it more than once and they stop paying attention to the things that would send a 50 years to the Doctor.

Well, I know a surgeon took out something but I'm not at all sure what.

Admittedly I was pretty small at the time.

i always tell dr that i only had 1 surgery, and i did not walk for almost a year after the procedure.

it was when i was circumsized as an infant.

Aren't all those body parts interchangeable?

The good: None of those possible surgeries are likely to matter as part of a neurological problem.

The bad: The memory deficit might be part of a neurological problem.

Maybe he got a price break and got them done all at once.

Moral of the story: when you go overseas for medical tourism, don't skimp on hiring a good translator.

"...oh wait, it was the wish-bone, that was it! Now I remember, the wish-bone! The wish-bone was the very last thing the surgeon took out before my nose glowed ridiculously red and there was a hideous screeching buzzer sound."
