Had he eaten something heavy for lunch?

Never never piss your wife off after a heavy meal and when she has a carving knife in her hands!!!

As for Ozzy's comment, people who spend a lot of time sitting can suffer from a complaint that might just lead to that situation...

That should read:

"Following his re-admittance to hospital, Mr Sternats was reported to be in STAPLE condition..."

More proof that the famous Queensland fighting foam, Fourex, rots yer guts...

I love the quote at the end:


A spokeswoman for the Royal College of Surgeons of England told BBC News Online: "Operations should be carried out so that does not happen."

Not that uncommon actually! In my family we have many doctors. One of them as a surgeon was called to a hernia repair job were a guys intestine had started worming its way out the hole once the op was started, (hernia ops are done under sedatives not general sometimes, so if a patient starts moving around...) whole length of intesine pops out!

Anyway they packed them back in, where he is fine now.

Alarming for the patient, but for a surgeon it's about as exciting as a go-around for a pilot. Used to be much commoner in the days before modern methods of closure and suture materials.

[A spokeswoman for the Royal College of Surgeons of England told BBC News Online: "Operations should be carried out so that does not happen."]

Typical feeble remark from the RCS of today, who are now ruled by a bunch of PC toady lickspittle social workers and spend all their time sucking up to Bliar and his coterie of whimpering bumsuckers.

It's a pity BD can't post her pic of..well, it ain't a stomach falling out. It's a little further down the alimentary tract. :D :uhoh:

I had the unfortunate experience of being present when a poor sod was lacerated accross his stomach, he didn't survive sadly. It has always stuck in my mind that the intestines were so tightly packed that they seemed to need twice the space thay occupied.

Apologies for the gruesome description but it has amazed me to this day.

:sad:

Hey MtK - seems you don't have a very high opinion of the RCS - would love to hear what you would have to say about something/someone who REALLY p*ss*d you off!
