My First Surgery

In 2006 I was rushed to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. After a CAT scan and some other tests they determined I had a ruptured intestine and would need emergency surgery. Because of the weak condition of my heart and lungs they had always told me I should not have general anesthesia unless it was really necessary. This definitely was “really necessary”. This little adventure inspired me to write a series of blog entries chronicling the events. In order to pull the whole thing together I’m posting an index of those articles here. I hope you enjoy it…
