Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Jezz, no offense or anything, but, it looks like something that crawled out from like a sci-fi movie or something.

Yes it was 8 inches all together! No one knows why this tumor forms. Its a rare bone tumor so...

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Glad to hear you're on the mend. Did they sew up your scalp, or did they leave the metal exposed like the guy from "Texas Chainsaw Massacre II"? Just don't scratch at it with a bent coathanger hook.

PS... stop using your celphone so much.

Get better, Boba Dude!

Wow, so glad that you're ok!

Alright, now for the medical geek in me, those scans are so neat!!  My dad used to work in x-ray and cardiology, and now works in nuc. medicine, so these kinda images always fascinate me.  So, thanks for sharing!

What did they do with the tumor?  I've always wondered about these things....I had a ligament wrapped around my intestines a few years ago and I never even got the see it, I was kinda hoping they would put it in a jar or something for me.

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

I have one thing to say....
METALHEAD!

Anyone screwing around with your head ain't fun.. I got a concussion back in July and had a gash in my scalp that required stitches. Oh, that was fun with my long hair.
So, are you going to set off the metal detectors in the airport? Will the metal portion of your skull be stronger than the bone? Titanium is a very hard metal.

They took it too a lab and tested it. The tumor is rare so the know almost nothing about it.



SD_Chick ,

No I won't set off metal detectors. My head will never be "as" strong as it was. But in the question you asked, yes.



Thanks for all of your support!

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Looks like the tumor involved the bone since they ran off with part of your skull. Bone tumors tend to hang out for a long time until they get big enough to notice.

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Wow! I thought getting titanium rods in my back was bad! I hope you are doing ok, I know what it's like to go through major surgery.

Take it easy and feel better!

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

By definition, you are a cyborg. If they took out that patch of skin with the skin, how did cover up the titanium? I always wanted to know if titanium could block a bullet. I will just have to meet you and find out, first hand tongue.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Cyborg - A person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device.

Technically he is not a cyborg as he his not kept alive by a mechanical or electronic device. But I can see how someone might think that. Darth Vader is a cyborg.
I am occasionally called RoboMan....:lol:

They cut a zig zag insion across the top of my head, then they pulled me fase down. (Thats so nasty)

I agree with Jacsveus, I am not a cyborg! There is no mechanical or electronic device's in me.

draco fett, I don't really know if titanium is bullet proof.

Here is a link to the place where you can find out here

I kinda know what you mean, I had my appendix removed when I was reeeeally little, and me and my mom both wanted to keep it. But hospital protocol wouldn't let us. >< They only let us keep the gas mask they used on me. That alone freaked out all of my friends, so God knows what an an entire ORGAN would've done to them. o_o

Boba Dude, you're so lucky to have a small, nearly invisible scar.....the appendix scar I have is HUGE, and noticible. It sucks, because unless I wanna wear some sort of granny one piece, its totally visible in a bathing suit.... Or even normally, if my shirt starts to ride up on me. D=

Metal plate though... >.> Does that mean if someone raps on your head they'll get some sort of bang? =O

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

If you want to know about Titanium go to:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium

But to answer the question, sure titanium is bulletproof, but so is steel. It is a lot stronger than steel and would stop a bullet but the thickness of the plate on his head probably wouldn't. Let's just hope he doesn't get shot in the head. (as cool as it might be to say your skull stopped a bullet wink)

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

Hey Boba Dude, I missed this thread originally (probably because I was on my honeymoon in May). Glad to see everything is healing well. By the way the pics are awesome. Must feel a bit unreal to look at that and know it's you wink

Ceilia, I'm not sure if it works on older scars - but paw paw cream is great for healing and leaving little to no scarring. I've got a scar on my chest, under my right breast, where I had a small tumor removed (also benign). It used to be fairly pink and icky looking. Over the years it's reduced in size and is the same colour as my skin. So don't fear wink

Glad to see you back, Boba Dude! Thank heavens it wasn't cancerous! Wicked pictures, by the way. smile Most I ever had done to me was in August when I got my wisdom teeth taken out, it hurt like heck. I lived on slushies and crushed popsicles for a week.

Re: Boba Dude and Surgery!

I was joking about his skull stopping a bullet. According tho my dictionary, a cyborg is "a being, usually human, who has mechanical or metallic implants." We are getting rather off topic however.
