Welcome to the ‘No-Judgment Zone’, dear reader.
No matter what happens here, no matter what you see or read, you must remember: No. Judgment. Zone.
Yes, it might be hard. Because seeing a radiograph of an instant coffee jar inside a man’s pelvis is… troubling. Similarly, an x-ray of a zucchini up and around someone’s bowel isn’t, err, typical. But his is a safe space, okay? Okay.
*Please remember to breathe deeply and calmly*
Radiopedia is an education resource for medical and radiology professionals around the world. It’s a place where doctors and technicians share the cases that they want to discuss and post articles of interest.
It also happens to be the source of a number of x-rays of what the site calls “Rectal foreign bodies”.
The site indicates “patients usually know that there is something in their rectum although are often at a loss as to how the object got there.”
Without further ado, let’s explore the wonderful world that is ‘Stuff People Have Put Up Their Bums’. To our surprise, many of the objects aren’t overtly… um… sexual.
Ready? Let’s do this.
Fly spray can
Okay, so absurdity aside – we really just want to know HOW?!
Spray cans are not little… particularly this one. They’re quite girthy, actually. So we’d love to know what story the doctors were given when this particular case rocked up to the emergency unit.
