If you know a nurse, or a doctor, or someone else who even sort of works in the medical field, you’ll find that person won’t have many qualms about saying certain things in public. The names of body parts, for example. You can also get some gross diseases (a friend of ours once said the phrase “boggy prostate”) or bad injuries from them, but they’ll talk about them like they’re nothing.
The nurse who was in charge of this meeting really wanted to scream it from the rooftops, didn’t she (or he)? It’s clear the nurse knew what the perineum was – and now you do too – so maybe the nurse just wanted to free this person from his or her inhibitions. It’s okay, bud, you’re in a doctor’s office. You can call it a taint.
Yeah, It Kinda Hurts
The story goes on to say that the injury wasn’t life-threatening, just pretty gnarly to look at. Somehow this guy had chopped into himself with one of the most dangerous tools around and was just able to take himself to the hospital with a couple of towels. Maybe the person who told the story originally was keeping it low on details in order to avoid legal trouble or something like that, but it seems like the patient wasn’t really all that bothered by what seems like a bad cut.
You have to be careful while using chainsaws, you really do. We’re amazed that the guy was able to shut off the chainsaw after it had struck him, but maybe there was some kind of safety shut-off in case of just such an event.
And He Knows That, Too
Fun piece of trivia – if a mother continues to breastfeed, her body will keep producing milk. It has to be an intentional end to the procedure for her body to eventually go “Oh, we can stop this.” And it will, quite quickly, since it’s a whole lot of energy that isn’t going anywhere. Well, in this case, it was going somewhere. Our guess is the husband was a fan of the change that lactation causes in the mother, and didn’t want it to come to a stop that quickly.
He...went about it in a way that we wouldn’t encourage, but we’re also coming to the conclusion that there were a few other things that this guy was keeping secret from his wife. He could have at least asked.
Skipping Out on the Bill
This isn’t a fun thing to think about, but it seems like this guy wasn’t suffering that much from the intrusion of a wire coat hanger inside his body. Instead, it was all a ploy just to get out of the cold and get some good food inside his belly, even if there was already something in there. People make jokes about hospital food, but it isn’t really all that bad.
People who work or spend a lot of time at the hospital need to be able to eat some good food, too. Having a nice cup of coffee and a healthy meal will keep these people working better and keeping people healthy with fewer issues. We don’t really know if that food is worth doing this kind of thing to yourself, but if someone is homeless we suppose there are only so many options.
What Are the Odds?
An insane anesthesiologist is a hair-raising thing to imagine. What are the odds of this patient landing with the anesthesiologist who was his ex? There are a lot of patients and a lot of people working out there, so pretty darn low. Thankfully, this woman was caught and imprisoned for what is very clearly a criminal act, and the guy is fine, so we’re okay talking about it.
Having to go through what seems like a pretty intense surgery without being put under doesn’t seem like fun. And that’s a very simplified way of putting it. We almost want to know what this guy did to get such a response, but it seems more likely that the woman was just a little bit off her rocker. You know. A little bit.
