    I wonder if any of you guys have some sort of super cool scars or stories or something! I have crazy ones. Three years ago my wisdom tooth went horribly wrong so they had to take out most of my lower left jaw! The replaced it with a titanium plate and some bone marrow. I'm hella tiny so they had to get it from both sides of my back hips and again from my front hip. So, I've got three that are awesome.

    That bicycle chain thing is the plate. Not really what you'd think it'd look like lol Also, two metal teeth for implants!

    Your turn. [​IMG]

    Yup, that's my jaw! As is this:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It doesn't make the metal detectors go off, though. I was kinda hoping it would just once... but then it would have to happen all the time and suck royally. Prolly not enough metal.

    C'mon guys~ doesn't anyone else have any stories? I know you do. We all do! Doesn't hafta be all epic [​IMG]

    Like~... when I was younger I got 3 scars on my knee (at separate times) and it ended up making a smiley face!

    We should start a titanium club bombchu. [​IMG] I've got some nice titanium in my leg.

    I've had a similar bone graft from my hip too. That thing hurt like a bitch. I can't imagine multiple donation sites. [​IMG]

    The airport thing depends on the technology. Only the newest metal detectors can pick up titanium. I got stopped in Phoenix because of it the last time I flew.

    You might not get that many responses, as there was just a thread like this recently: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=102916

    And there's a similar thread that's a bit older.

    Awesome x-rays btw.

    I got hit by a truck a few years ago. I have a metal plate in my hip along with a few screws, and a metal rod through my tail bone.
    I have a long scar from my left side that goes to just above my lower part... you know. And another one that goes from my thigh up to my hip and then to my back. I also have a scar on my knee where they had to put a metal rod through and attach weight to so that they could pull my leg back out of my pelvis. Spent about three weeks in the hospital.

    Another member of the titanium club! [​IMG] That sounds like it really sucked. I hope you've recovered well.

    On the plus side, you can tell all the ladies you have a metal coccyx. [​IMG]

    I lost a bunch of teeth in fights; not really lost, more like they broke in half

    I also once cracked my skull after a fall

    [​IMG] What do they do for that? Head brace? ... I keep thinking head cast but that's not right.

    Maybe someday you can get some nice tattoos that turn your scar arches into angel wings. [​IMG]

    My leg is so scarred up at this point that I want to make some kind of artwork out of it. Maybe a Line Rider course or something. [​IMG] Sort of celebrate it instead of hiding it, you know?

    The scar on my abdomen from the bone graft definitely puffed up and pinked up a bit, but not too bad. It didn't get all lumpy or anything. The rest have stayed pretty flat. For some reason, the hole marks from all the staples I got have never really gone away like they said they would, so I have all these red dots everywhere. Looks kinda like zippers.

    Nothing besides being bandaged a bit, I had no neck damage, and my skull is really thick and big luckily.

    Yeah except for the scars and a small limp the only real problem is if I run for more than a few feet my leg locks up and I fall.
