Dumbest Things Surgeons Had To Remove From People

Sometimes people put foreign objects in their bodies. On purpose. And then they get stuck (shocker!) Sometimes people get things inside their bodies that shouldn't be there, by mistake. Regardless of how the stuff gets in there, sometimes surgery is the only way for it to be removed safely. Reddit asked the surgeons of the world for the weirdest things they've ever have had the misfortune to unearth from patients' bodies, and some of the answers are so strange, it's kind of terrifying. People truly know how to turn their bodies into junkyards. Here are some of the weirdest answers we found.

    Text - Succulentowl 1.3k points · 20 hours ago · edited 19 hours ago Not a surgeon but a CST. Crayon from an ear canal. Shampoo bottle from the rectum. Jar of coconut oil from the rectum. Rolled ball of aluminum foil from a male's urethra. Pencil from a male's urethra. There's more but those are the ones that stick out. Unluckily for them, those didn't.stick out...

    Text - Muahhahaha 968 points · 2 months ago S Not my story, my friend is a radiographer. A guy came into the hospital with Barbie dolls up his butt. After scans, One came out without too much issue, but the other was too far up. They were worried that if it was pulled out, it's arms would open and puncture the bowel. So they scheduled surgery, the x-ray staff waiting excitedly for news.. The surgeon then returned and with a serious voice announced: " We've found Ken'.

    Text - aganmuranaka 1 point · 1 hour ago Not a surgeon but an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) assistant. Tailfin of a fish from the eye. A woman was catching a fish when suddenly it jumped and poked her eye. The fin was stuck to her eye.

    Text - Immortal_So_Far 42 points · 12 hours ago Honestly, a tiny, insignificant little speck of metal that a guy got in his arm. There was literally no reason it needed to come out because it had been there a long time and had never gotten infected or caused a problem. But he was absolutely dead set on having it out, even when I warned him that digging it out of his muscle was more likely to cause bleeding, scarring, pain, etc. And he wasn't willing to do it with just local. Oh No. Had to be put

    Text - Stabby-the-cat 67 points · 17 hours ago When my friend was doing her nurses training in the ER a guy came in with an empty jam jar stuck up his arse, his excuse? - He had just had a shower & (whilst still wet) sat down in his chair. What he hadn't noticed was the empty jam jar on the chair & because he was wet & as a result, slippery the jam jar just happened to "slip" up his bottom. allegedly!

    Text - thadiator94 3.6k points · 2 months ago 3 Endo Tech here, had a guy come in with a capped section of PVc pipe filled with Mercury because he liked the "sloshing" when he Jerkin his turken. Had to call in Hazmat and security had to be called when he became violent because they wouldn't give the Mercury laden pipe back.

    Text - TBoneus 211 points 2 months ago edited 2 months ago Medical student not a surgeon, but 1/2 a nunchuck! The other half left a nice lac between the eyes of his girlfriend when it broke. She needed stitches.. Remember kids, cheap nunchucks you win at a carnival make bad sex toys.

    Text - jhepp23 81 points · 2 months ago I'm a scribe at my local ER and one time an 80 year old man was getting a CT scan and forewarned us that we would see something in his rectum that had been there at least 30 years but didn't bother to tell us what it was. It was a sword.

    Text - ThaBriMan 73 points · 2 months ago My dad is a Doctor and apparently they swap these stories like trading cards. Here are his favorites: 1. His Doc friend has an X-ray that he shows to everyone, trying to get them to guess what is lodged inside someone. Spoiler, it's a bowling pin. 2. Another Doc friend has an artistic sculpture on his desk resembling a plant or tree of sorts. It's actually a plaster from a man's insides. A party of men decided to pour plaster in a volunteer's asshole, no
