"My experience with vasectomy actually top's another previous horrifying experience I had earlier in my life. I burnt both my hands and face/hair off completely with second and third degree burns in a gasoline fire when I was 16(in 5 months I made a full recovery, pain free). My vasectomy experience as a whole has been by far the worst experience in my 36 years alive here on earth, worse than the fire, divorce, being homeless at one point, all the challanges in my life, you name it."

I don't know about medical procedures but I hear a lot about differnet infections.

One thing that freaked me out a little was the idea that West Nile virus is not that bad in its home countries because it tends to infect children, who do in fact suffer encephalitis but come out all right because the skull has some room to expand. Therefore this may be a case where vaccination would hurt rather than help.

Another case where vaccinating would be guaranteed to hurt rather than help is dengue. People who initially got dengue fever are then susceptible to worse disease upon later infections with slightly different strains, because antibodies help the virus enter cells and those cells transport it through the body faster than it did at first, while the antibodies themselves are not that effective because it's a different strain of virus.

I forget where I saw some interview recently with a woman who had a vaginal mesh put in after a hysterectomy, and it caused her such intense, constant, stabbing pain (as well as both urinary and fecal incontinence), which her doctors kept shrugging off, so she tried to commit suicide a few times before finally she found a doctor willing to remove the mesh and I forget what he did next. But the look on this woman's face while she was telling this story was so hollow and dark--thousand-mile stare stuff. Shudder.

23- There are two dengue fevers. Normal fever is when you're infected with one serotype (there are 4.) Hemorrhagic is when you're infected with a second different one and is the disease with bleeding eyeballs, etc. The former is still not pleasant, it's called breakbone fever because the convulsions can literally make you break your own bones, but the second is the outbreak-type nightmare.
We have one serotype in our lab which is permitted at BL2, having two serotypes together would require BL4 containment.

25: Teo, if you have a fear of doctors (which shows you're rational, intelligent, and all sorts of other good stuff) you need to cultivate stoicism. Hypochondria ups the chances you'll be exposed to some screening tests and infections floating around the doc's office or the hospital. That leads to doom.

What are some other weirdo side effects of otherwise relatively common medical procedures?

Well, a CT scan of the lower abdomen in general calls, sometimes, for ingesting a fair amount of a substance (billed as sorta like a fruity vanilla shake, pretty yucky) which later results in uncontrollable diarrhea. Not explosive, quite, but it's advisable to be close to a toilet for at least a couple of hours, ongoing. Someone should have mentioned that.

To clarify, I actually (pace Biohazard) consider my aversion to the medical establishment a pretty serious and potentially dangerous personality flaw, and one that I'm working on fixing. I've been lucky so far in being young and generally healthy, but as I get older the probability increases that I'll develop actual serious health problems that will require some level of medical care, and I'd ideally like to be aware of potential problems before they reach the crisis stage. And then of course there are my various psychological issues, of which this is one, which have generally been more tolerable with some sort of treatment than without it.

Also, parsimon, while you're here: I'd like to apologize for the stuff I said to and about you before. There are some things that bother me about the way you tend to interact with me personally and with the blog in general, but snide comments about ignoring you were not the right response. Maintaining an atmosphere of civil discourse where people are kind to each other is very important to me, and I realize that I was not helping contribute to such an atmosphere with those comments. I'm sorry, and I hope you can forgive me and that we can interact with mutual kindness and respect going forward.

If you give blood and do a double red cell donation they take their regular pint (quart?), spin off the red cells in a centrifuge, pump the plasma back into you, and then take a second pint (quart?) of whole blood. Whole thing takes one needle, maybe 45 minutes. Best part is, the plasma that's been through the centrifuge comes back in at close to room temperature, and feels cold up the veins of your arm and into your vena cava.

Back to the OP, I had a cow-orker who had a leg break serious enough to require surgery. (It was broken in 2 or 3 places below the knee -- I don't remember exactly.) When the leg healed, his foot was pointed slightly outward. It wasn't noticeable to anyone else, but it interfered somewhat with his mobility. Fixing it required another surgery.

I don't know if it was a preventable mistake and I don't mean to stoke two's fears, but for me it's a good object lesson in the need to research surgeons and hospitals.

I had a very minor surgery with a doctor I trust and everything turned out ok, but I know I should have done at least some checking into her record and the hospital's.

That guy Apo links in 10 I suspect is nuts and/or has a lot of health problem that are surely not related to a vasectomy. Also, that last line would make an excellent hover text.

From day 8 to 20 I had developed severe pain in my balls(congestion), and the nerve pains from it spread into about everything 1 foot above and below my waist... On day 43 I felt a bad sensation in my left groin, hip and leg at work that felt like it had 110 volts going into the back side of it. On day 46, if I laid back in a chair after work or laid in bed at night, the high voltage pain in my left groin/hip/leg came back and was some of the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life, all night long down the backs of my legs(left mostly)...From this point forward, day 51 to present day 71, it seems like all of my pain has reorganized. It seems to have let up a little bit in my balls(maybe a 6-7 on average), but now it has spread into both of my legs(muscles) and knees almost all day long. I feel severe pain in my balls, groin, hips, upper legs, the backs of my knees. I feel pain in my kidneys, random pains in my abdomen, side aches, and of course my balls still throw a complete fit without warning, sometimes for hours on end.

A side effect of a mastectomy involving the injection of Methylene/Isosulfan dye for sentinel node biopsy is that a person pees blue. Not as much of a shock as the feel and look of the chest right afterward, but if she's unprepared, it might alarm a little.

Not that it is in any way comparable, but some of the deeper shades of cake frosting, the kind you get on a Batman-themed cake, will make your poop turn the same color as the little rocks at the bottom of a fish tank.

How much frosting do you have to eat?

103: there's a dye they put in your eye to check for scratches on the conjunctiva, which, over the next few days, means that you sneeze orange.

104: On the advice of a shrink who on reflection was a lunatic, I once tried an all raw foods diet to treat depression. The main thing I ate was almonds, like for three days straight. I pooped a kind of eggshell off-white. I freaked out and ate a steak right away.

It occurs to me that a straight almond diet plus appropriate dyes could allow one to poop just about any color one chose. Getting candy stripes is left as an exercise for the advanced student.

Extreme constipation should allow sufficient time for layering.

Extreme constipation and enough diet variety and you could do a thing like one of those layered sand jars.

Just buzzing past as my semester comes to a shuddering, speechless end, but when my father had hip replacement surgery a few weeks ago his doctor extended that leg so it's now the same length as the other for the first time in his life. Crazy!
