    Foreign Metal Bodies

    It all started with a CT scan I had done for an unrelated problem. When the results came back it stated I had "metal foreign bodies of unknown origin" located where my small intestines meet my large intestines. My gastro doctor was baffled. I had a colonoscopy to remove polyps...

    Usually

    Every time I eat beets, venison, cinnamon, rosemary, thyme, paprika, bananas, potatoes, broccoli, black beans, nuts, okra, raisins, figs, veal, salt, celery, or shrimp, I put even more metal in my body.  I would probably die without it.

    A Metal Ankle

    In 2008 I fell. It wasnt a big fall, I've fallen farther and harder. But the way I fell twisted my ankle almost all the way around. It was just a fraction away from being a compound fracture. That day they did surgery to implant a metal rod on one side and 4 screws on the other...

    I have 2 metal rods on my back.

    I was diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age and although my parents and I prayed that it didn't get worse by the age of 14 I had to undergo surgery. It was either that or allowing my ribs to puncture some of my organs. It took me a while to recuperate. I had to lay in bed and...

    Metal plate and screws in my left ankle.

    Slipped on ice and fell sprawled out on our patio steps. Cracked rib too. Rib hurt worse than ankle. At the ER they had to give me a shot of morphine so I could sit still for the X-ray and CT scan to determine the extent of my injuries. Ankle was broken so that I had to have...

    Heavy Metal Toe...

    I have a pin in my left big toe to keep it straight. It fails miserably due to my CP spasticity pulling it up anyway. I cant wear shoes as was promised after surgery. Bah! I also have 13 piercings. :)
