This is what we call a basic vaginal injury.

meh... the story already went green a few days ago:

Often known as caustic soda in industry.  Or lye.  I worked with it a lot in my college years, not something you want to get on your skin, much less a mucous membrane.

There is some sort of vagina and lye joke here.

Vagina and lies, sounds like my college years.

Hmm, someone will do better.

CSB: A couple of years ago, I had oral outpatient surgery. Afterwards, the nurse told me to go into the men's room and "rinse my mouth out with Lysol". In I went, and there was actually a bottle of Lysol in there that had apparently been left out after cleaning the toilet or something. There was also a little basket containing small bottles of mouthwash, one of which I opted to use instead. I said something to the nurse afterwards, and she went pale. She'd misspoken, obviously. But I couldn't help but wonder how many people would have just used the Lysol on the sayso of a medical professional, and ponder the hilarity that might have ensued.

Wait, they pulled a bottle cap from behind her cervix? Wouldn't that be from inside the uterus?

I'm gonna wait for the other side of this story....

The woman, who asked that her name not be used because of the nature of her injuries, was undergoing what was supposed to be a routine examination called a colposcopy - a way for a doctor to look at a woman's vulva, vagina and cervix - at the office of her gynecologist, who works for Paragon Health in Summit County.

/Usually that costs you dinner and a credit check along with what type of car you drive.

Why would you put it in a spray bottle at all? Poor man's Oven-off? Jesus, that's stupid.
Oven-off is nasty shiat, but at least it's formulated to foam up and stay where it is sprayed.

No, the cervix lays against the back of the vag, leaning to the bottom. So you COULD get a bottle cap in there, although, i have no idea why he would put one there, or not use gloves, or how in the hell he could mistake lye for vinegar.  And the most stupidest moment was when he TASTED IT to see if it was caustic.  How did this quack ever graduate medical school? Did he get his diploma from Mexico?

Since nobody else had said it: subby, where the hell did those chemical formulae come from? Dude. Acetic acid is CH3COOH or CH3CO2H or HOAc, not that abomination you wrote. Second, H2SO4. Not H2S04. Yes, there is a difference between zero and the letter O.

Maybe my comprehension is failing.... But how did they determine that the doctor used KOH? Or that the Doctor lied, and that the solution used had a PH or 12 or greater?

It has been a long time since I've done any chemistry, but if a normal vagina has a PH of 2.5, and the Doctor used a solution with PH of 12, wouldn't that result in a neutral vag?

Why is a medical grade examination chemical in what sounds to be, a reusable garden type spray bottle? For that matter, why was it marked with a common name like vinegar instead of hydrogen acetate with an indicated strength/concentration?

"Well jeeeze, it SAID vinager....and vinager has HAC in it...."

From a girl here. I had a colposcopy done once and there was no spraying involved. They remove a cone shaped portion of the cervix for later lab testing. It hurt like hell and I eventually passed out. Normally they numb the area. They skipped that step. Needless to say I've never been back to that particular doctor.

I have seen articles of vinegar being used in developing nations particularly with sex workers to identify if the woman had pre cancerous or cancerous cells. It was something cheap and relatively easy to identify. I think the vinegar makes the abnormal cells appear white. This is the first I've heard of it being used in the US but perhaps it would be something WAY easier than removing a portion of the cervix directly. I can imagine vinegar hurting like hell if it was sprayed after a wound was created but it still sounds like this was a major FARK up. Hope she gets millions.

If it was a legitimate vaginal injury, the woman's body has ways of shutting that whole thing down.  Obviously, in this case, the woman's body deployed a plastic bottle-cap shield, protecting her from any further harm.

A vag is never neutral, and do not ever trust them when they say they are.

Subby's acetic acid notation is perfectly cromulent.  The acidic, cationic H is listed first, and then the rest of the molecule is written in condensed notation.  It's usually used by people who haven't yet learned organic structures, but it's valid.  I could tell what compound was meant.

Your H2S04 complaint stands, although I can't really give subby a hard time since I'm forever typing H2) instead of H2O.

I think it comes from them telling them to go to the ER and the ER staff speaking with the doctors office.  I'm curious why a gynecologists office would even have something like that in the office?  That had to be intentional, maybe cleaning staff?  Maybe he did it intentionally so he could do the numbing cream without a glove thing but underestimated the damage?

The bottle cap thing really has me confused.

I had the Lime/Coconut song in my head at first:

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime-
Johnny was a doctor, a doctor he is no more-

until I finally remembered the chemist joke.  But on second look, the Oscar Meyer song would go almost perfect, syllable and rhyme-wise.


/you put de lyme in de coconut and drink 'em both togedder,
put de lyme in de coconut and den you feel bedder!
