I always make fun of Dave Spencer anytime he blogs about gout, his colonoscopy or any other ailment that big hypochondriac thinks he has.  But today, I am having surgery to repair an inguinal hernia.  Now, I am not going to lie.  I am a horrible patient.  I got this thing a year ago when I flew to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise.  Apparently my suitcase weighed about 400 pounds and it caused all my man parts to rupture.  LOL!  I was trying to live with it, but the pain has gotten out of control and today I am doing something about it.  And it goes a little something like this . . .

Yep!  This is gonna suck.  First of all, there are certain areas and parts of my body where I would like to hang a "No Sharp Objects" sign.  And THAT area is one of them.  There are also certain "complications" I like to avoid when having medical procedures.  Warnings like "You could lose a testicle" or "You may have problems with bowel movements" usually make me run in the complete opposite direction.

But, nevertheless, I am going to be suiting up (or rather down) today and letting complete strangers perform surgery on my crotch.  Yay for me!!  I hope to be back Monday morning a brand new man.  I just hope I'm not THAT brand new.
