So...."What was the MOST ridiculous thing a patient came to the ER for?"

  1. Please note this is not a repeat of the other thread with the quoted part of my title above. What I'm asking is for folks who have followed that thread to vote for the "MOST ridiculous" amongst the ridiculous. By all means, please read from the beginning of the thread so you don't miss any of the doozies.

    I'm thinking there is some stiff competition.

    Have fun!!

    cell phone removal from vagina. infected vaginas and scrotal areas from "do it yourself peirceings". a pt that had a dka event and fell out at a softball game landed in a huge aint mound, we had to irrigate his sinuses for like a hr. to get the ants out.

    there was the one about the guy who came in with his penis trapped in a dead duck. (no, it's not a typo.) it makes you wonder what would ever possess someone to attempt to have sex with a live water fowl, but perhaps i don't really want to know. the duck, as i remember, had to be surgically removed. i don't remember precisely where i read it, but it had to be on this forum because this is the only place i read stuff like that! i remember i read it while ostensibly working, and was laughing so hard i fell off my rolling chair. heads were popping out of rooms all the way down the hall, and i was laughing far too hard to be able to tell anyone what was so funny. i just pointed at the computer, and soon everyone was laughing, although to be honest i'm not entirely sure they were laughing at the story and not at the sight of me literally rotflmao!
