I can't believe he said this!

I went in to the pain doctor to get my spinal block to hopefully find out exactly what is going on with my back, and when it was all done he says to me, "come here, I want to show you something. I'm going to print these out (my xrays from the procedure). This is sooo cool." He then points out something on them and says, "you're a freak of nature. That is so cool, I've never seen anything like this before!"

He's an awesome Dr. And wasn't being derogitory in anyway, but it was so funny to hear him say that He was like a little kid looking at my x-rays, hahaha

LOL! That's funny, I had a dentist do that to me...and he called all his assitants in to look at my Xrays. I have really deep, long teeth roots that are curled up like pigs tails. He said I better hope I never need root canals..eek!

I had 5 wisdom teeth. They're all gone now, not that they made me much smarter either, lol

In my back, I have an extra vertibrae. He calls if L 5 1/2. There's also some jointy typr thing by your illiac crest, normally I guess it's only a few inches and right at the part where the lumbar & sacral meet. Mine runs almost the entire length of my back, and is an inch lower than it should be.

haha! My brother got his removed on valentines day! What a great time for him, lol. But I told him that he would be OK. The only thing different is that he'll be less wiser - so don't give me advice.
