“If you are going to get into a fight, and have a prosthetic eye, make sure you take it out first…..and, for safe keeping, shove it up your vagina”

This thread, Things I Learn From My Patients, is a very long discussion on Studentdoctor.net about bizarre and horrifying things doctors and hospital staff have encountered. Some of it’s very funny, some of it’s very frightening, some of it is probably invented and some of it will make you despise humanity. It’s definitely not for the squeamish, and like many big internet discussions you might despair of some of the posters’ attitudes.

if you are going to have a leg amputated in a car accident be very sure that the neighborhood dog is not lurking in the area…they tend to take what they can get. even legs!
