Popped


A 34 yo female arrived to the ED bent forward and holding her vagina. The patient was screaming in agony yelling, "Something is coming out!"

I immediately went to examine the patient and asked her what happened.

She stated that "My boyfriend and I were having sex and in the middle I felt a loud pop with severe pain. After he stopped, I stood up to go to the bathroom and THIS fell out!"

She pointed to her vagina. I then looked down and noticed her small intestines and omentum hanging from her vagina!!! I could barely look at the boyfriend without wondering what he was packing down there to bust his girlfriend like that. It turns out the patient had a hysterectomy and the boyfriend popped the sutures loose. Gyn on call immediately took her to surgery where she had an uneventful recovery.

How recent was the hysterectomy?

Congratulations - you have posted the only thing I have ever read or heard that literally made my jaw drop.

On the other hand, I figured something like a tea cup size dog, ham loaf or vibrating fist toy was going to hit the floor.

Having small intestines and other sundry bits protruding through your vagina tops all that.

*bleh*

Does that dude wrap it around his waist? When he says, "I'm gonna wreck you honey.", he ain't kidding.

Wow. If they're good sports they can joke about his junk for years to come.

Seriously, one situation where I fully understand the lady's reaction! O_O

Yeah, how recent was the hysterectomy? There is a reason you are suppose to wait at least 6 weeks!

Should have sent him to x-ray to get his picture on the throckmorton's sign wall of fame.

O.M.G. That makes me so glad that I gave a firm "no" to the hysterectomy two ob/gyns recommended and just had my ovaries removed instead.

Oy oy oy. That poor woman.

This is Doc Sensitive-
The hysterectomy was over a year ago and to the non-beliver- it really did happen. I don't lie.
