Another foreign body story...sort of.
I was having another discussion with the ER nurses the other day when another foreign body in a rectum came in. This time it was in the form of a shower head, this one also required a trip to outpatient surgery to remove it. This was interesting in itself, but the conversation that followed I found much more entertaining.
Nurse: "Why would you stick a shower head up there?"
Me: "I don't know, I've seen some very sexy shower heads."
Nurse: "No, but seriously."
Me: "Yeah, you'd think you'd start with something small, like a pen or maybe a chapstick."
*ER gets quiet*
Me: "That was a very specific example, wasn't it?"
Nurse: "Something you want to tell us, doctor?"
*I pull out a Burt's Bees from my pocket*
Me: "Chapstick, anyone?"
