cmunic8r99: My wife had hip replacement surgery a few years ago, and I wrote "OTHER HIP" in giant letters with an indelible marker on the side that wasn't getting work.

She's having the other one done soon, and I'll be doing the same thing this time - on the "good hip", of course.

/no, she's not that old
//get off her lawn anyway


you're supposed to say that with a smug expression... like "yeah, that's right... my wife needs her hips replaced. you know why. I also need to replace my box springs every 3 months."

To be fair, she wouldn't hold still for the x-rays, so all he had to go by was this:

MythDragon: uncleacid: Did he not notice there was no hip replacement in the operating room.

That's probably when they realised the mistake. He asks the nurse "Where's the replacement hip joint" and she says "We're not replacing a hip joint, why do you need one" and the doctor says "uh-oh."


If only. At least a few of the nurses had to see that he was sawing off the whole hip bone instead of just filing off a bone growth. The anesthesiologist should have noticed that the procedure was taking much longer than expected. Everyone in the room should have noticed that things weren't going according to plan after the first hour or so.

I'm not shocked that this happened. Just very shocked that this wasn't in America.


Then again, it's Sweden. Maybe they were using the Ikea instructions on how to perform hip surgery.

But instead of just removing the growth, the surgeon allegedly chiseled away the entire hip joint, and put it on the operating table before the mistake was discovered.

You know that sinking feeling when you realize you hit D9 instead of D8 on the vending machine and get Doritos instead of Sun Chips? It's like that TIMES A BILLION BILLION.
