    A woman who cathed herself with a garden hose and dropped fish hooks into her bladder

    Another female patients who inserted a dozen or so pins and needles under her skin - she looked like she'd been pinned and plated (without the plates)!

    In my peds rotation in school, I brought up the chest x-ray of my 21 y/o pt who presented with asthma exacerbation. And I see a solid circle about halfway down on mid-clav line, I stare blankly for a min and think, "Oh, that's what a nipple ring looks like on an x-ray!"

    Quote from ruby vee
    i've also seen some interesting things on vet x-ray. i had a golden retriever who, over the years, ate a watch, contact lenses, glasses, a coke can, railroad spike, tin soldiers, paring knife and my mother's antique doll. the vet used to do an x-ray every time i brought the dog in for shots, whatever, "just to see what's in there now." the paring knife was still there when the dog died at the ripe old age of 13, about 7 years after she ate it! (must have been a very dull knife!)

    ahh, here come the foreign-object-in-rectum stories <gets ready popcorn of tub>

    i know it is just a tv show, but i have never laughed so hard as that episode of scrubs when the guy had the light bulb up his rear and when looking at the x-ray, dr. cox says "either that or his colon has a great idea"

    wow, so i know you said this is from a tv show but my nurse friend who worked night ed told me that he did in fact have a pt with an intact light bulb up his rectum. how? i cannot possibly imagine. :imbar
