All In a Days Work

Yesterday Dr. SOB had the pleasure of providing anesthesia for a young gentleman who reported that he 'accidentally' fell onto a bottle of Scope mouthwash. And then he 'accidentally' fell off of said bottle. And then back on. And then off. And on. And off. Until he had fallen on and off the Scope bottle so many times that he loosened the cap and it became lodged in his rectum. It was in there so deep that surgery was required to remove it.

Perhaps he was taking Scope's slogan 'Get Close' a bit too literally.

Yeah. Sometimes it's very entertaining to have a spouse in the medical field. This isn't the first time he's come home with stories about removing things from people's butts.

I get stories from my father, but since he is an internest and not in anethesia or surgery....nothing quite this colorful recently.

Oh my. Wow! Puts me in mind of the SNL bit "Appalachian ER"...

Amy Jo said...

Susan! That was my first thought, too! I love when they do that skit!

Holy crap, LMAO! Maybe next time he'll pick something a little smaller to accidentally fall onto!
