Since there are lots of 'nosey' posts at the moments.....

Have you seen any of your internal organs?

To start the ball rolling, I have seen my fallopian tubes

I've seen the inside of both my knee joints in surgery.

I have seen my uterus and tubes and bladder in the metal light frame above me during c-section...

more bizareely I saw both my DD and DS before they were 'made' and where just a single egg made of my DNA and unscarred by their father's DNA!!

LOL Demented - I did that too. And regretted it afterwards. Was horrified

My fallopian tubes were in a jar, post sterilization

Newbarnsleygirl Tue 01-Mar-05 16:29:59

In a scan!!

I have a duplex kidney and it looked pretty grim.

Haven't seen anything distgusting like bones or organs sticking out though!

redsky Tue 01-Mar-05 16:31:18

Aero Tue 01-Mar-05 16:43:52

Had a good look at the placenta when ds1 was born - eeeeeeuuuuuuugggghhhhhh - but cool in a strange way!

Demented Tue 01-Mar-05 17:28:54

<hopes never to see fallopian tubes in a jar>

Although did watch a few episodes of that human biology prog on Channel 4 that was on a few weeks ago with the strange guy in the hat that disected human bodies and showed you how everything worked and went together/

happymerryberries Tue 01-Mar-05 17:30:49

Look at least this thread isn't contentious!!!!!

womba1 Tue 01-Mar-05 17:31:07

I've seen the shavings of bone that were taken from the backs of my kneecaps... delightful!!

macwoozy Tue 01-Mar-05 17:37:31

I've seen a catheter being pushed from my groin to my heart, and watching it wriggling around on a screen.

JanH Tue 01-Mar-05 17:44:02

I had a bone scan once - they injected (?) something radioactive first - so I saw my bones. I think. Well, sort of. (Memory is a bit hazy!)

Merlin Tue 01-Mar-05 18:20:47

Haven't seen my fallopians, but surgeon wrote "good tubes" on my notes after c/section!!!

happymerryberries Tue 01-Mar-05 18:22:04
