I am having a 7th surgery. However, it was an optional surgery. I could have had the procedure under just some pain med assortment, but my doctor was worried I would metabolize the meds too fast and be uncomfortable during the procedure. I agree. So it is technically an official surgery.
My 8th possible surgery is exploratory to find the source of some pain I've been having. For the meantime, it will be postponed probably at least a year unless my pain is unmanageable. Hopefully the 7th surgery may explain some of the pain.
