When I was twenty I had emergency surgery for a blocked bowel. (I know, I know, too much information).
The surgeon told me that while they were there they took out my appendix for no other reason than they were there and there was some study that showed that after surgery the appendix might get infected and have to come out at a later date.
Ten years ago I was told that I had a spleen, but it wasn't working. No-one seemed overly concerned why
Eighteen months ago I had my gall bladder removed. Don't worry, I was told, you can live without it.
Today, during an ultrasound the technician asked me if I had had my spleen removed because she couldn't find it.
Couldn't find it?
So that's three.
Three organs I was born with, and do not have anymore, and apparently that's ok.
Not sure where the spleen went.
Maybe the aliens took it.
That makes as much, or more, sense than anything I am getting from the medical profession.
Who knew that the creator would make us with all these extraneous parts?
