We’re at a hospital and I’m sitting next to the charge nurse, giving her info on our patient. Something catches my eye on her screen – a patient in his 20s with an “object in penis” as his complaint.
“What’s he got in his penis?”
“A triple-A battery.”
“Is that a hobby?”
“I don’t know.”
“How far up his penis is the battery?”
“Probably pretty far up because they’re planning on conscious sedation to get it out.”
A few hours later, I asked about the gentleman, and apparently he left without resolving his problem because he was worried about the cost of removing it.
