Have you performed surgical procedures on yourself?
Have you ever performed a medical procedure on yourself or another, even though you might not be trained to do so?
No way! One; I am completely terrified of needles, so sewing or anything similar on a human would be impossible for me. I'm sure if it was life or death situation and I was the most qualified person left on earth or something similar I would be able to work up the courage but while there are still professionals, lets leave it up to them!
Yes. With alcohol, sterilized needles, the whole 9 yards. Who can afford going to the doctor over every little abscess or whatever comes our way?
i've given myself stitches a few times. fixed a few broken bones and a couple of other things. doctors scare me.
I'm not a doctor, so no. I haven't. In fact, I find the thought to be a bit gross. You can give yourself a horrible infection with a dirty knife, pin, needle, etc. I have pulled a splinter myself using a pin and was concerned with that. I'm a whimp when it comes to doing anything along those lines. Went to the doctor with a three-pronged fish hook hanging out of my foot too. Couldn't bring myself to remove it!
No, I leave that to my husband -- though he's happy to have only had to sew himself up once. That said, he's also very well-trained for the job...he spent 33 years in surgery, and there was no question that he was doing it right. You can barely see the scar where he put about 15 stitches in his leg.
Other than piercing my ear i can not say i have done any kind of medical experiment to myself
i've done some dentists work on my teeth ... used a screw driver and a needle to make the pain go away... with a few pain killers and local anesthetic cream. :S
I tried to pull a polyp out of my nose with tweezers and a reading light. Bled like mad. I had to go to the doctor and then when he saw it, he said "this looks bruised", so I had to explain what I did. He wasn't very happy.

How can I relieve pain naturally on my surgical incision?Is there a natural pain remedy that I can apply to the skin around the site of a recent surgery? It can't be something that would cause an infection since the wound is not completely closed.
