Appendix(Bodily)Removal Empty
PostSubject: Appendix(Bodily)Removal   Appendix(Bodily)Removal EmptyThu Oct 21, 2010 6:12 pm

Hi: My former neighbor boy (12 years old) just had his appendix removed. I am going to send a card and thought I would mention something about a strange event I seem to recall from the early 1950,s. My brother had his appendix removed way back then. The hospital brought it to his room while I was visiting. The appendix was immersed in alcohol in a sealed glass bottle. The nurse said he could take it home as a souvenir.

I am 66, so I do not always trust my memory. Am I having a pipe dream of some sort? Does anyone else recall a similar incident?

Thanks,
Ron

Unfortunately yes. My mother-in-law had a golfball sized tumor removed from her female regions about 10 years ago and they gave it to her in a jar to show her visitors. She didn't take it home, though. Ain't my kind of Brandy!

That used to be pretty common to save body parts and take them home up till the 60's

I wish the hospital gave me my spleen and gall bladder when the surgeons removed them 10 years ago....

I had my appendix removed twice, the last one was removed July 2010 with a 5 day stay in the hospital.
Its called stump appendicitis for the unlucky few.
