    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. :)

    Is This Normal???

     Due to an accident in Sept. of 2007, I broke my jaw in 4 places, and crushed my right heel.  I've got plates and screws in both, and im in constant pain.  I don't really know anybody with metal in them, so I don't know if this is normal.  Should I still be in...

    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.
