(UPI)   When getting an appendectomy, one would normally expect the surgeon to actually remove the appendix. Most of the time you'd be right. Most of the time   (upi.com) divider line 15

Sorry for the guy, but this is begging for a photoshop:

Is that a finger coming out of his abdomen?

If that's the only way to remove the appendix then I'm screwed if I ever get appendicitis. I have no idea how to surgeon.

FTA:"The lawsuit says the surgeon removed a "yellowish mass" from his abdomen, not his appendix."

WTF, spare parts?

/was it Dr. Nick using an alias?

Hum if removing the odd yellowish mass that wasn't supposed to be there instead of removing a minor organ solved the issues you were having at the time, I hardly place blame on the surgeon.  I think I would have informed the guy, "When we went in to remove what was causing issues with your appendix we found that there was this tumour/giant clump of solidified bile (which ever it was). Instead of removing the appendix we're pretty sure this will solve the issue but if you have further trouble please do come back."  Then bill his insurance company a ton of money.

One would normally expect a failed surgery to be discovered before a year has passed. Most of the time you'd be right. Most of the time.

You know how it is when you get new powertools, and you get so carried away with using them that you forget to finish the project that was the reason you originally bought it?

Normally when I hire a doctor to remove a specific organ from my body, I don't ask them to crack open the chassis a second time just so I can inspect the work.  Most of the time.

Peg Bundy: What happened Al?

Al: The chart said I needed a circular incision, but they gave me a circumcision!

Peg: But I thought you already were circumcised?

Al: I was!

Privacy Laws prevent me from sharing my Surgical Tech war stories. That, and you  only think you've got a strong stomach.

The stock pick of the little alien popping out of the stomach ties in nicely with the mostly meme.  Don't ya think?

You fool! Always get the work inspected, always.

When my mom, dad & I were watching that episode and Al walked in wearing that muumuu, my dad couldn't breathe-he was laughing so hard. Also, I had never seen someone roll on the floor with laughter before that day and still haven't since.

To err is human. To not tell your patient about it is ... well, still human, but not a very good one.

Well shiat, I hope mine is gone.

I'm assuming it is because I haven't had excruciating abdominal pain in over 5 years, but still.......
