Good questions John, thanks for asking...

How does your body respond/react to bee stings? wasps? etc.

I talked extensively about all of that here. But the short answer is no, I've been stung over a hundred times and never had a reaction.

Do you have other health issues that could possibly compromise your immune system?

Nope, not at all, or at least none that I am currently aware of. In fact, despite being overweight, I have an excellent immune system, having survived intestinal surgery complicated with severe peritonitis which should have killed me several years ago. Also having cut off part of my thumb and not getting any infections from that nor from the dead tissue while my thumb was healing.

No, I've been through far worse things in recent years that were, or should have been far worse than getting bitten by a little 20 gram hognose snake. And like I stated before, that wasn't my first bite from a hognose, just the worst one.
