Tastes Like Chicken






A 37 year old women came in with abdominal pain and fever. Whenever a female comes in with this complaint we have to do a "female exam" to make sure there isn't a vaginal problem that could be causing this. Sure enough, her cervix was tender and she had a discharge. After sending some labs....it came back as Trich. I informed the patient of her diagnosis and her need of antibiotics. She asked is there anyway to "make her better without getting rid of the discharge?" Puzzled....I told her no and asked her why. She replied "Because my husband really likes the way it tastes and has been spending a lot of time down there."

I almost threw up.

Now that there is Klass with a capital K.

Of course, the first thought that popped into my head was whether or not he might get GI signs from it. I suppose vag-to-intestine colonization might be a bit of a stretch, but I once found poultry-specific trichomonads causing chronic diarrhea in a cat being fed raw chicken.

Just when I truly thought after all these years I had heard absolutely everything...there are still surprises.

HugeMD said...

I've heard a lot of disgusting things. That's got to be in the top five, maybe even top three. Blech.

You know you're an ED nurse when...

You sit here on night shift during a break, eating noodles with cream sauce, read this, and go right on munching away.

Just another wild story from the ED
