    IA2006 had the idea for this poll so I made it for her, If there was a surgury that could shut off the vomit center of your brain forever. Would you have it done? Edited by: jwavrek

    *her* lol.

    Tanks for making it.


    I think I would..but at the same time, I would still worry if something went wrong in the surgery and it had the opposite effect!

    Indeed.. although it seems a tad dangerous seeing as that part is there for a
    reason. Ha ha cannot say I wouldn't opt for that surgery!

    I would be worried that if I ingested somrthing horrible that I would need to vomit to stay alive. What if I drank windex or something thinking it was kool-aid and I couldn't vomit and died?

    Well I guess thats silly cuz I highly doubt I would drink windex.

    I amuse myself.

    ya know, i really cant decide, i wanna say yes, bu v* is very helpful to the body, ridding toxins and all. i really cant say. however, if there was some other way to rid the toxins to replace v*, than i would do it without a doubt.

    If there are toxins in your stomach that need to be removed they can always pump your stomach.Edited by: jwavrek

    I said yes, but sometimes you really do need to v*! e.g. the Windex thing. But most of the time it's just a basic immune response that doesn't do anything, like if you have a sv it won't make it go away any quicker (according to members on this site; don't complain to me if I'm wrong!) So I would just have the surgery and avoid anything bad like Kool-aid-ish Windex.

    There's a surgery for people who suffer from extreme GERD that changes
    the valve from the stomach to the esophagus so it can only move things
    down, and never up. So it's physically impossible to get heartburn or to v*.
    But once again, it might be dangerous. Even though it's intriguing.

    well, i certainly would consider it.

    i think i would:

    think about it,

    see how well it goes on you guys first,

    and based on that, i'd make a yes or no decision.

    That surgury that changes the esofogeal sphincter has a low sucess rate, and often turns out very painful and you have trouble eating solids and other things, I looked it up one time, i've heard of people actually v*ing because the surgury didn't go well, and they end up v*ing like once a week for the rest of their life because the sphincter is scarred and such.Edited by: jwavrek

    No, but I would make everyone else around me get it.

    Nope, I am just as scared of 'going under' as v*ing. I think it is a control thing.
    No brain surgery for me.

    I have a friend who had the surgery because she suffered from terrible GERD. That was ten years ago. She is not an emet, but said she loves the idea that she can't v*. She said she can get still get a sv and have d** just no v***.

    the surgery for the GERD DOESNT always stop you from v*.

    Hmm. Maybe.

    I don't know... the thought of having surgery on my brain kind of scares me, especially if it isn't absolutely necessary. Plus, I know in some situations, it serves an important purpose. But yeah... that sounds pretty good. But I still don't know...

    and I would send my husband and daughter since I live with them. See I am more afraid of others but don't like it myself (and if I'm contagious then I worry that others will get it etc etc etc).

    I agree.... same here! I most likely wouldn't get the surgery myself (brain surgery = scary!!) but I'd want everyone around me to have it done!![img]smileys/smilies_04.gif[/img]

    YES! While my ultimate goal is to overcome this ridiculous phobia, I've never been one to turn down a quick fix.

    Though, when I actually think about it, brain surgery isn't exactly "quick". Hmmm.

    Still, I'm voting affirmative!
