[More]s. In 1975 at the age of 11 i had meningococcal meningitis. This was the start of my journey with real pain. From 75 to 85, i had to have both legs amputated (1 right away from gange green the other later from a post op infection), more then 100 skin grafts, finger amputations. From 86 to 96, i had several bone grafts, spin infection (NOT From abusing IV Drugs!.. jeepers..it amazes me how quick doctors jump right to that), spine fusion/plate, several Esophagus operations.. needless to say..the meningitis happened in 75', but its affects are like the energizer bunny. Oh.. lastly, & probably the most interesting thing I know about myself (thanks to a couple ortho docs).. I'm 44 years old, & have the bones of a 75 year old man.
