Wondering where your tools went? [Feb. 21st, 2005|05:40 pm]

Every year, surgical tools are left in approximately 1,500 patients in the USA. Heavier patients are more prone to having a surgical tool left inside of them due to the additional amount of space in their bodies.

We used too.. Now there's going to be less and less because of legislation to make it impossible to receive hardly any money even if the wrong legt is amputated...

My mom knows an old man whose doctor left a ten-pound sandbag ON HIS TESTICLES for three days... the poor man was too medicated to tell anyone what was wrong until his wife heard him whispering "balls!" Dayum. I'm not even a male, but that hurts me just to think about!!!

Maybe that is why people 'bleep' at airport security door things...they have a pari of forceps inside?

Generally is is best not to go near doctors at all. Most of them havnen't a clue what they are doing but they are so arogant that they tell you they have.
Why did they canel your insurance?

Definitely a lot of arrogance in Doctors. The problem is determining what is confidence and what is arrogance. Oy. Some different factors including some things going on with insurance here in the states, I'm trying to get it reinstated.

doctors are not very good at all with that kind of stuff. they're like "oops there goes the pokey thing...well at least i got the tumor out!". I have never had surgery...but i might have to. *dies*

What might you need surgery for? I've had 5 or 6. Hard to keep track.

OP-ER-ATION

A doctor left a surgical instrument in my grandfather's abdomen once, and he had to go back to get it removed. We talked to him about filing malpractice charges, but he didn't want to.

Re: OP-ER-ATION

Yikes. Glad they got it out. I understand not wanting to sue, that can be such a mess.
