so i was talking to my next door neighbor today, and he was fiddling with something under his shirt,...and he saw taht i noticed, he said that he had a colostomy bag. He is a totally healthy guy...about 40-50 years old..so i was like..gosh..are you ok? and he said that back in July, he had been working on a truck or something..he was up off the ground, i guess in the bed of the truck, im not sure...i didnt quite get that part of the story. but what i did hear, was that he fell off of whatever he was on, and landed on a motorcycle trailor, ...the part where the spare tire goes, has an 8 inch threaded bolt sticking up. yea you see where this is going..
he falls squarely on the bolt, it tears through his jeans, and underwear, and rips through his colon, and ruptures his bladder.
i about fainted upon hearing that. I was like..oh my GOD are you ok now? he doesnt have medical insurance, and he is now 38 grand in debt bc of this incident. He does work though, construction i believe. So anyway, he said it happened on a monday, and he didnt go to the hospital until WENDESDAY. but they said he was fine and sent him home. (Charity hospital in New Orleans.. not exactly a great place ) So he goes home, and he said by the next SUNDAY, he was peeing blood...as red as the shirt i was wearing so he went in with a urine sample and they finally saw him... did x rays and what not...turned out the RUSTY 8 inch bolt RIPPED the colon wall, and basically "popped" his bladder like a water balloon. amazingly he didnt have an infection. They gave him tetnis shots and all kinds of stuff...he is still awaiting a second surgery. dunno what they did to him on the first one. But DANG that has to be SO freakin painful. its just F'd up. Can you even IMAGINE????? 8 inches of threaded rusty steel up your @$$????
