Life’s little Mysteries

September 27, 2008

Have you ever wondered what happens to a foreign object after it’s removed from a patient’s rear cavity?  I mean, I hardly expect there to be a big box of lost property in the surgical department full of them.  You all might not have, and in fact I never did until the question was put to me.

“So where is the on call registrar, anyway?”
“I saw him downstaris in ED.  I think he’s removing a vibrator from a crazy old guy.”
“Yeah, that must have been what they were laughing about.  You’d think with all their years of experience they must have seen this sort of thing hundreds of times.  Should it still be funny?  They need to get over themselves.  Anyway, what do you reckon happens to it after it’s removed?”
“…” (Me, stunned silence)

Apparently, it gets cleaned and given back to them.

It was an instructive day on call.  I watched the Grand Final without interruption, and was called to insert a grand total of ZERO IV cannulations.  It was great, except I started to have symptoms of the beginning of tendonitis (secondary to Cave Story).  Have you played this game?  It’s an awesome NES styled 2D platformer in the Metroidvania style.  It has more charm and is less buggy than it’s compatriot freeware title Eternal Daughter, which is brutally unforgiving.

Anyway, the moral of the story is a dildo up the backside is timeless entertainment.
