"When medical science allows individuals to live with half of brain. It makes sense. Since most of society are already living with half of brains. Take a look at Congress. I betcha all 100 Senators combined only constitute a fully functional brain."
'Totally' in the title made it sound like organs you don't _need_ at all to survive. Brain, lung, liver, and kidney you still need, but you can survive with one/part missing. There are other organs you don't need to survive, like eyes or reproductive organs. You won't be able to see or have kids, but you can live.
Also you can lose your bladder, colon, large segments of small intestine, eyes, thyroid (really a large part of the endocrine system) etc. It's crazy how little our body actually needs to continue on. Of course more is better.
I got my left kidney taken out almost two years ago now.
It had a tumor i went for 194 lbs to 147lbs in 7 or so months.... If you have this kind of problem text me if you are scared and just don't know what you what to need to know.
The short is:
don't drink lots of anything at once.
Drink more water.
Watch how much sugar/alcohol you drink.
And watch YouTube videos from trusted sources on this topic.
Lastly watch out for those pain kills narco I think. Just try not to sleep on them.
The 1st week is the worst after 2 months you are mostly normal.
You can live for the most part a normal life.
There are people born with only 1 kidney mostly men and usually missing the left.
If you have the right setup you can live without lungs or a stomach by constantly having oxygenated, nutrition filled blood pumped directly into your bloodstream, then filtered through machine which readministers oxygen and vital nutrients before pumping it back into the body.
I can at least vouche for the appendix not being a big deal to have removed. But if you dont have a high pain tolerance, if it ruptures its going to hurt, a lot. I felt like my insides were on fire, after 4 days of pain, then trying to play it off my dad took me to a small clinic and they found out it ruptured 4 days prior, he asked if we wanted an ambulance to the neareast hospital. Well it was suppose to be a 30 min surgery in and out no biggie, had a top surgeon doing my surgery and he was confident lol. Took him 3 1/2 hours to fix me, developed gangrene all over my intestines and most of my insides. When i woke from surgery the next day he told me i was quite lucky i came when i did. He said a few more hours and there is nothing he could've done to save me, only give me pain killers till i passed, the gangrene was spread out a lot and it almost got to my lungs and heart, at that point i would've had a week at most to live.
If you ever feel lile your insides are literally on fire see a doctor, dont let a high pain tolerance keep you from worrying, like i did.
A few more body parts that you can live without include your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, arms, legs, and sex organs. Not that it would be fun but you can have a full functioning life without any of those. Actually you can lose them all and still be able to live though you would need some serious assistance!
My question is that is organs like the liver, kidney and lungs can do 70*% of the work that both could do, then, why do they not work that hard when they're both in the body? Thus increasing productivity and decreasing the chance of failure? No?
I'm in no way shape or form qualified in anything to do with medicine, this is just a curious mind pondering... :)
I used to work in an Acupuncture clinic . We had a patient that had half his brain removed. I asked him what symptoms he had, He said when he slept and dreamed he couldn't tell if he was dreaming or awake.
Gosh lessee. Due to surgical removal, I no longer have: gall bladder, appendix, tonsils, wisdom teeth, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, omentum, left shoulder ball joint though that last one was replaced with titanium parts.
Missing Organ - Large Intestine:
I had my entire Large Intestine or Colon removed in 2011. I had Ulcerative Colitis, which is similar to Crohn's Disease. After the Surgery my Small Intestine was routed outside of my Body, near my Belly Button and I had to wear an Ostomy Appliance or Ostomy Bag. Six months after the Surgery, after my body healed, my Small Intestine was plumbed directly to my Rectum and I didn't need to wear the Ostomy Bag anymore. I could then go to the Bathroom like a normal person. I think that Large Intestine should have definitely made the list.
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
