Dawn, I'm going to quote this to force myself to look at it later on tonight, or tomorrow after the endoscopy, when hopefully my mind will be more clear. My little male anatomy issue is an on-and-off problem, sometimes it's annoying and other times it's as if there were never anything wrong. But in the long run, what you've said is EXACTLY what I want to avoid. Thank you for wording it this way! Scurrying back into my little hole in the ground now :)

Aww, everything happens for a reason, NG!
You're not a wuss - surgery's horrible. When the time is right, you'll get it done!

BTW one last note, the situation is so pathetic that even my parents are LOL'ing at me now. These are the same ultra conservative parents who keep thinking I'm going to die riding motorcycles, get freaked out when I travel alone to foreign countries, and would prefer that I don't snowboard because of the risk of injury. My mom's exact response when I told her I backed out was "WHAT!!! How can you be covered with tattoos but be scared of an endoscopy and circumcision!" Hahahahahahaha damn, that was kind of harsh, but oh so true!!

I second what Val and Dawn say - when you're ready for surgery, then you'll have it done. You need time to reflect on the pros and cons - will the short-term pain be worth the long term benefits? If the answer for you right now is "no", then you're making the right decision.
I think maybe part of what's causing you decision-making problems is that your situation isn't desperate. With LIS, there is no question, the pain and disruption to your life is just intolerable. But with something like this, it must be pretty hard to feel motivated. Don't worry NG. You'll do what's right for you.
I won't mention that my surgery recovery buddy bailed on me and now I have to watch geeky space shows by myself (notice that I'm not saying anything about that?) Image
Ok - that's my one little razz and I won't hassle you anymore - I'll let your parents do that! :D

Hey NG,
I'm a bit late to the party here but ...
Don't feel bad about bailing. We've all done it! The others are right, When you're ready, you'll do it.
I've had a few surgeries too, (nothing in the order of 14! WOW!) and I have to agree that the recovery times vary, but the butt, being the butt probably just takes longer. Weirdly though, my LIS is the only surgery I've had that came without a post op infection ... Go figure!
Hope you're doing okay. Don't beat yourself up about it!
:D
