    Could be worse! May be icky, but we'd have one heck of a time coming up with some very funny jokes about it!

    If my appendix has been part of my urinary tract for 12 years, does that help with immunity or make me even more of a freak?

    renee, how does it happen that your appendix is part of your urinary tract? I always thought of the appendix as the one totally uninvolved part of the body, the part that has nothing to do with anything but apparently that's yesterday's theory, and nowadays they've been finding that it's not so useless. In a Wikipedia article about it I found this--and maybe that's what you had?



    The appendix is also used for the construction of an efferent urinary conduit, in an operation known as the Mitrofanoff procedure,[27] in people with a neurogenic bladder.

    When I had to have another surgery my then doctor took my appendix out for no good reason. I now want it back. It is the cause of me having to get up 3 to 4 times per night.

    Mitranoff, si. I'm glad my appendix was still in me for the surgery- a continent urinary diversion. The continent of South America.
