31 Funny, Weird or Gross Things Surgeons Have Removed from People’s Bodies

For nearly 60 years, Hasbro’s board game Operation has tasked children with meticulously extracting foreign objects from a kooky guy’s body. In fact, some kids went on to become surgeons in adulthood after experiencing the toy’s nerve-racking thrills. What they didn’t know is that the strange game of careful surgery would often be even stranger in the real world. To that end, surgeons have taken to Reddit to share the wildest things they’ve removed from patients — and a startling amount came out of where the sun don’t shine.

UN ozzieowl . 2y I used to work in medical sales and one A+E Dr I visited had an 8 ball on his desk (it had a little stand and a glass case). I had to ask - thinking it was a pool competition trophy. It wasn't a pool competition trophy. ... 1.9k
DMmeUrPetPicts . 2y Hamster is #1. An entire door knob which ripped out of the door, screws and all. (The guy SWEARS he fell while putting on his shoes. After that, every time someone changed shoes to go to the OR, our little 80 yro Path would say, Watch out for the door knob! Don't turn your back on it! And laugh himself into a crying fit. Absolutely magical to see.)

Jasole37 147d My little brother was a nurse for about a decade. Не has said many times that people stick anything up their butts. From lightbulbs to hairbrushs to a golf shoe. And at first it's hilarious. Then after a year or so it's not funny because you've seen way too many distended buttholes. Then after a decade or so it starts to get funny again because you think you've seen everything and then one day a 45 year old man is driven to the hospital by his wife and he has a golf shoe up his ass and he

Basically, an old woman had a poorly fitting upper denture, and decided it would be a bright idea to line it with a piece of lunchmeat. Flash to several years later, she was having pain and strange crawling sensations in her sinuses. It turned out she had never removed the denture since.

The guy claimed he fell on it when walking through his kids playroom... naked. Fish in a women's vagina. She was mad at her husband for leaving her to go fishing for the weekend so she used his prize fish he had frozen to masturbate with. I can't remember what kind it was but I want to say a carp?
