Another medical question arrives from Courtney, 34, in Omaha, Nebraska:
I have been lucky enough never to need surgery, but if I do ever need to have my appendix, tonsils, or several inches of my intestines removed…
ANSWER ME THIS:
Would the surgeon allow me to take my innards, rather, my newly outtards, home with me in an alcohol-filled jar?
Medics and surgery-alumni, please go to the comments to supply Courtney with her answer.
I know that after I had my gallbladder removed, in my post-surgical party bag was a little plastic jar filled with gallstones, or a spoonful of gravel off the pavement, difficult to call.
