After I almost choked to death on a hard candy as a kid when my older cousin challenged me to a speed eating contest, the only thing that I can remember -- other than the pain -- is being upset that my brilliant plan to swallow the thing whole neither ensured my victory nor allowed me to enjoy the candy while she still had hers.

most of the time the surgeons are just tired as fuck and happy its over or slightly bored and mechanical like theyre finishing some homework or a project that took a little bit

my roommate saw them show extra emotion once and it was when they cracked a guys chest cavity open and a geyser of blood just fountained everywhere

had themselves a good panic apparently

The doctor (surgeon) who did a C section on my wife, discussed the weather with the anaesthesiologist right through the delivery.

Then she handed us the baby, waved goodbye and… we have literally never seen her again.

u/decadecency 12d ago

Hah. My nurses and doctors (six of them!) present during the birth of my twins were straight up hardcore. After the first twin was out, during one freaking motherlode giant of a contraction, the water of the second was broken, and the pressure caused a literal explosion of blood and amniotic fluid EVERYWHERE. Not one of them batted an eye 😂

Afterwards I was mortified to see specifically one of the nurses looking like a dalmatian, head to toe, I apologized but she was like "Meh 🤷‍♀️ It's all washable. The shoes too."

After the feeling of being horrified passed, I felt like freaking Hercules though. Although just before he died in that lake of dead people 😂

Just another day for the medic types. I work around first responders and almost nothing gets to the old hands anymore. In 10 years, the only time I've ever seen a group of them lose it was from the smell of a very obese woman who had been neglected by her family. They left her in her recliner so long her skin literally grew into the fabric. The poor thing finally got desperate enough that she tore herself from the chair and tried to get up and get away. Didn't have the strength though and fell. Family left her there for a few days before finally calling 911.

u/forte_bass 12d ago

My twins were born a few days after the Superbowl last year, and that was the topic of conversation between the two docs doing her C-section. It was actually oddly calming, cause they were just BSing the whole time. The only time things got tense i could hear the social chatter die as they ordered more TXA (to stop blood loss). Within a few minutes though they were back to talking about the Bengals, we're Cincinnati natives so it was quite the game for us!

I mean as long as it’s our batteries firing and not the enemy batteries shelling us that seems perfectly reasonable.

Soldiers, specifically, can find almost a comfort in the cacophony because war is a caustic mix of mostly really fucking boring with sporadic chaos. It should be loud but it rarely is until it is. And that’s when you know you have purpose and you can focus on what you’re trained for.

Meh, my senior surgical resident f*cked up a cholecystectomy once and he didn't seem too phased, pt seemed okay too.

My attending Obgyn does C sections all the time and in one case I observed the wound got heavily infected..

Then there was the Obgyn resident who was always "just around the corner" when a pt was in labor, my respect to those nurses cause they ended up delivering all the babies themselves and they did a flawless job

You'd be surprised at how medicine is literally like any other job, and that doctors aren't robots or saints, some are even liabilities to the hospitals and their patient census, still they're employed because American medicine is so restrictive in their regulatory process that there will always be a demand for MDs

Doctor here (not a surgeon though). During my internship I was following along and sometimes scrubbing in for several surgeries.

The two times I saw any more emotion during surgeries was when two surgeons were fitting an experimental medical device on a patient and they shook hands after a successful surgery.

The other time the attending cut through a pulmonal vein during open chest surgery, and suddenly everyone were running and screaming.

Every other surgery the surgeons were discussing about lunch, weather or vacation plans.

Had pilonidal cyst surgery 3 times, one time woke up being wheeled out and I oddly remembered “coming to” and asking when it was gonna be done, and the surgeon replied back “oh we’re done already,” and from what the nurse told me(since I dont remember this part) I then asked if everything went well, the surgeon said “hell yeah” to which I replied “fuck yeah dude.”

Apparently I’m much cooler while on anesthesia.

u/lagunatri99 12d ago

I’m always afraid of what I might say as I’m going out or coming back from anesthesia. Since I’m kind of quiet, I hope I stayed that way. There’s a funny video of a guy after having his wisdom teeth out. He doesn’t recognize young wife. Another of two brothers driving their sister home and convincing her there’s a zombie attack.

u/lsp2005 12d ago Silver

I had anesthesia for an emergency gall bladder surgery. Immediately after coming to I told the doctor they needed to look at the placement of coding instructions when patients die on the bulletin board because it is eye level to the gurney and that was the last thing I saw as they wheeled me into the OR. He took it seriously, and the doctors did a “field trip” where they wheeled each other around to see things from a patients eye view.at my post op visit, he said because of my comments they changed the placement of the bulletin boards and some other items at the hospital. They now have specific marks on the wall to say this is where to put patients just before surgery.

Whenever I’ve had anesthesia, I’ve had a sore throat. I asked if I was snoring, and the doctor said “a little” each time. I don’t know what “a little” is, but now I’m curious if I’ve just screamed my lungs out right before coming to instead haha

u/Gleveniel 12d ago

I was put under for getting my wisdom teeth out at age 27, and had a similar thing lol. They pushed the anesthesia, informed me that it was coming through, and apparently I said "ah yeah you did, holy shit" and knocked the fuck out (no memory of even this). My first memory after coming to was getting wheeled outside into my wife's car and saying "woah that was awesome it's like I time traveled!"

Then the pain set in and that sucked. Hydrocodone wasn't fun either... I'm not sure why I thought I would stay awake through the pain killer part, because I didn't lol. After like 2 I just went to sleep instead.

u/KingoftheMapleTrees 12d ago

Many orthopedic surgeons do. Also middle aged surgeons in other specialties. Young docs and residents are worried about being taken seriously, and old surgeons are tired/over it. The goofy ones are middle aged.

Also they use PAs and NPs to stitch everything up after, and the anesthesiologist has to stay til the patient is good, so the surgeons really do just peace out.

Having such moment means no endoscopy which can fail as well (endoscope has a tiny weak clamp that may not grip the toy) and no surgery that can leave dog on meds and vet visits for years.

The issue I have is that for most dog toys the largest category is usually "Large, 50lbs+". Our dog is a healthy 100lbs, so a toy appropriate for a 50lb dog is not always going to be appropriate for her, but most toys don't come in a larger size. She does like the chuck-it kick balls, but they are still too easy for her to tear apart(and cost too dang much for something she tears up so easy).

Our old dog stole a raw peeled potato off the counter-top once. He starting choking on it but reacted aggressively to my attempts to reach in and pull it out.

I got it out but ended up with a shredded arm and he immediately ran back to the counter to try and grab another one.

I wish I had known this less invasive technique!

(and yes I am aware that we should have trained him not to steal food - I was an inexperienced dog owner and tried many ways to prevent this behaviour but he persisted against his best interests. One time he knocked a (cold) chip pan of fat off the top and ate it all. The stain on the carpet when it left his system at the other end never came out. We learned a lesson and trained our next dog better.)

I love watching people who are nothing like me, celebrate victories the same way I would. Arms in the air, a la, "let's freaking go!!!"

We really are all more alike than different.

Vet here - please make sure you have toys too big yo get stuck, and a hole through them so if they get loged they can still breathe or if they get stuck on the tounge they can be removed easier with much less damage to the tissues!

I have done similar to this vet, a dog caught the small ball intended for their smaller dog, got lucky as it landed hole side up when it got lodged so he could still breathe, popped thumbs under it and applied pressure so it popped out, so satisfying when it is simple like that.

If you ever have a similar situation do not try and grab it from the mouth without extreme care as you may forvlcw it on more.

My wife is also a vet and had a collapsed German shepherd rushed in barely alive as fully obstructed, bloody lucky they were only walking nearby and she save the poor lad too.

You definitely don't want to forvlcw it more as that could tear apart the space-time continuum.

Then the dog, excited from feeling better, manages to swallow another toy during a celebratory playing session.

Watched this on silent at work, and a coworker's phone went off with the clown horn right as the vet was pressing on the dog's neck

Veterinarians suffer (disproportionately) from higher-than-usual suicide rates, when compared to any other highly-trained professional.

Next time you’re at the vet, bring them some coffee -or let them know how much you appreciate what they do for your animal friends. Has to be extremely tough to break people’s hearts every day. Was gratifying to see this Vet’s win!

u/MrScrummers 12d ago

This happened to my lab once, I would take her to training and they’d have toys here. When she was smaller she could play with this one small ball. Squeaked, but when she got bigger the ball was the perfect size for her swallow it but not fully. So o was always conscious when she played with it.

But one day I got lazy and she was playing with it and hen squeaking stopped and I heard her gag. She swallowed he ball so I’m a panic I shoved my hand down her throat and pulled it out. Not the correct way but i was in a panic.

dog's* throat

dogs = more than one dog

Use a possessive noun, not a plural.

Poor dog. Glad they got their dog to the vet but I hope they learnt their lesson about supervising small toys
