    After reading all those, my story seems a bit tame. I was placing an NG tube on a patient, his nose starts to bleed a little, I reassure him that unfortunant, it is to be expected( after 4 nurses and a resident in the ER tried, then they call in Wally) I start advancing the tube, he says Im gonna be sick, Alright sir, just a little further and... he vomits all over my shoes and scrubs, to find out it was my first introduction to fecal emesis.
    The other, I was checking the SCD's per patient request squatted down at bedside chatting with my lady( had a recent bowel resection with colostomy placement) I asked how was her gas, and if she felt like she needed to pass gas, She lifts her gown and says It hurts here, and I think I have passed gas, is this bad, When I looked up, She "burped" the colostomy bag right in my face. I got crop dusted by a fresh colostomy. It has been two weeks and I dont think i got that all out of my nose yet.

    Brown recluse spider bite to the penis. The pt avoided coming in for awhile, he tried to care for it at home. When his penis turned gangrenous he decided to seek treatment. It was too late, when the resident went to examine the extent of the damage, the majority of the pts penis fell of on the doctors hand. The doctor calmly covered the pt up with the sheet, walked down the hall, into the dictation room and freaked out. The poor resident kept saying, "it fell of in my hand, I barely touched it!".

    For a gender generally so focused on their genitals, and with considerably easier access and visibility, I'm often surprised by men waiting to seek medical attention for issues in the area, often with nasty consequences.

    Off the top off my head are these patients who waited way longer than I think I would have, with these conditions:
    - penile cancer noted six months before presentation, resulting in amputation
    - testicular cancer diagnosed at stage 3 but detected by the patient at stage 1
    - priapsm for twenty hours secondary to someone else's erectile dysfunction injection
    - inguinal herniation over fifteen years of more than ten meters of bowel, and
    - trauma-induced gangrene of the penis and scrotum requiring penectomy and bilateral orchidectomy.
