You might want to sit down for this...


If you're a friend of mine on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I tore my left bicep TWICE in 8 months and decided to have surgery to repair it last Friday.

On the bright side, I GOT LOTS OF VICODIN!!

You win some, and you lose some...but only because of the happy singing Leprechauns making me toast.

So, with my arm in a giant post-op cast, I went back to have the next cast put on - at which point I got a great big look at what "Distal Bicep Repair" surgery looks like.

So I did what everyone else would do and took a picture and posted it on Facebook with this title:

"THIS WAS NO BOATING ACCIDENT!"

distal bicep repair
GAH.

Of course the comments started rolling in..

So I've taken the liberty of compiling the best of the so far. Three of them are from me, but whatever.

Enjoy.


God, I love you guys.

Now..if you could tell the Leprechauns to hurry up with the toast, I'd appreciate it.

Moog out.

I'm saddened to see my Barbara Walters comment from Twitter didn't make the cut. And to think, I was going to put my left arm into deli slicer so we could be twinsies!

The scar looks cool, like you were in a knife fight in which you were injured but still won.

Beautiful. Makes you want to run your tongue along that delicious spikey fallopian tube.

Really? I'm the only one thinking zombie?

PS: Sewing up a zombie wound won't keep you from being zombified. Trust me *moooaaannn*

Vicodin? All I ever get after surgeries are T3's!! What a rip off.

Knowing how bad you complained about a cat scratch, i'm sure this has been just awful for you (but even more for the people around you).

Also I really like anon's comment. Deep stuff.

@Olie - gotta screen your surgeons better. "Agressige pain therapy" seems to be the trick phrase :)
