    The stench of cancerous ulcers as they erupt out of the mouth during CPR. I wasn't able to clean our ambulance it was so bad.

    Food vomit. I can handle a SBO where the vomit smell like BM, etc. But if it smells like food I will gag. Wounds don't bother me, Cdiff doesn't phase me. Ostomys are ok. Will NEVER ear Ceaser dressing as long as I live.

    I have allergies so I'm congested most of the time. The smells don't hit me as hard, thankfully.
    Lucky you!

    My mom had one and I can remember having to be her helper when I little ,I never could get over that smell . Once when my mom was in the hospital she called my dad crying because no one on the floor would empty her bag because of the smell by the time we got there her bag had pooped and was allover the place I could smell it getting of the elverter I turned to my dad and said on @@@ it poped .
    That's horrible, I'm sorry that happened to your mom! I would never refuse to empty an ileostomy because of a smell. Same goes with entering a patient's room or helping to clean them up because of a smell.

    As a matter of fact sphinx, that is exactly what is happening! My husband is a firefighter and after a fire, he has a smoke smell in his nose for hours, sometimes days. Washing with saline sometimes works, others not so much. I used to think it was related to him INHALING the smoke, but he assured me he did not inhale : > }

    The worst is when it is in your nose and you smell it all day no matter what you do.
