MS & surgery risk research

Just read a research paper that has noticed a link between certain surgical procedures in childhood (under 20) and an increased risk of developing MS. http://www.ms-uk.org/index.cfm/MSnews

It suggests that people who have had their tonsils or appendix out could be up to 30% more likley to develop MS. Thought it was interesting and just wondered if anyone who is dx, has had one of these procedeures in childhood?

I had my appendix out when i was 16…
