    Funny you mention that. I have been keeping all the parts removed from me over the years, in case my body ever gets caught in a wood chipper and I need to build a new one.

    My stockpile didn't get as big as I expected, since I'm normally pretty careful with my body, especially around wood chippers.

    I think my collection included:
    • wisdom teeth (4 units)
    • ponytail (1 foot)
    • fu manchu moustache (2 units x 4")

    G.P. took biopsy said was BCC but his O.T. to small to excise, needed a hospital size O.T.

    Booked for Darwin Hospital O.T. then the broken hip happened and it was delayed

    Finally it was excised (fairly deep as well)

    Sitched up at end of op

    Some days later I thought stiches been in a bit long so I asked when they were coming out

    Came back with stich remover and dressing tray. I remarked Only take out every other stitch

    But she took all out leaving it like this

    Total hip replacement surgery video about 4 minutes



    Forgot to mention how little pain I had on waking up. Seems I had / have a pain patch which applied to the shoulder releases pain relief medicine through the skin

    Replaced every 7 days and additional relief can be given orally if required

    Never had such a system when I nursed

    Got pain? - quick shot Pethidine

    New system much better

    Apart from pain relief tabs given on discharge, was given a heap of labels which explains why leg will set off metal detector at airport
