Aww, that sucks. But at least he has an epic story to tell.

They replaced his... elbow? The whole thing?

The technical term I believe is "reduced" (to put the elbow back in place) but I didn't think anyone would know that, because I sure didn't!

Hey, if the problem is it's dislocated, surely the solution will be to relocate it.

;-)

... or in real-world English, you could "set" a (broken or) dislocated bone.  Probably cheaper than replacing the whole thing.  Unless it's under warranty.  Got the receipt?

I always enjoy the incredibly gross description of "popping it back in." They did that with my knee cap once, and hopefully never again.

Wikimeds confirms. 'Reduce' is the correct technical term for re-positioning a dislocated joint.

 

Dislocation always brings soft tissue damage into the equation, and it is very important to correctly reduce the joints so the ligaments can heal in a relaxed position.

That is way more exciting than my experience with general anaesthesia. I was out and woke up, having a little lack of balance. I wish I'd had some sort of hallucination, it would've made my day.

I was put under (perhaps that concious sedation thing? I'm not sure) to get my wisdom teeth out, and apparently when I was waking up, I told my mom that I dreamt about soap operas and House. That's my only experience!

I've never had that kind of issue with anaesthetics but I know people who have... Apparently some anti-nauseas can trigger psychotic episodes too, but I've never experienced that one either... only time I've been anywhere near that kind of state was from a severe head injury. I don't remember any of it but apparently I was completely insane, screaming at the EMT's and stuff. First real scrap of memory after that was barely being able to stand for my second round of full body x-rays something like 3 hours later... Nothing can kick your ass like gravity...

The center panel is spectacular.

 

Go back and look at it again, people. Ignore the rest of this comment and just go look...that is all.

For awhile, I worked in the front office of an oral surgeon's office- we did tooth extractions with anesthesia.  Part of my job was to keep an eye on the patients while they were coming out of it... and I heard all sorts of crazy stuff.  (I also got hit on by every teenage boy that came through, I think)  However, all I do remember from when I got my wisdom teeth out in the office was that I teased my boss about how long he made me wait, and that I pretty much refused to say anything to anyone afterwards for fear I'd embarrass myself in front of my coworkers.

Poor guy.  I can still remember dislocating my knee in high school.  Not fun.

Well, this is interesting to say the least. The hallucination was well-done. I hope that you will continue to provide us with these little bits that make us think more in the future.

Ho notato che questo casino online offre più giochi degli altri casinò in internet, così credo proprio che tornerò qui spesso.

Yeah. I had MANY accidents involving me and bicycles. Just be glad that Trevor didn't mix cars and trucks into that accident prone soup, like I did. One broken arm, some ligament damage to my knees (they still bother me even after 15 years) and so many concussions I am surprised that I am not permanently brain damaged. I think I was, I must have grown out of it because I don't do dangerous things like that anymore.

Man that sucks. I feel his pain. I've dislocated my right knee twice, my right shoulder once, and my jaw. All of which I have popped back in on my own. I have a high pain tolerance.

... or somewhat loose ligaments.  Or a little of both. :)

I have loose ligaments.  I can pop my shoulders and some of my fingers in and out just like that.  No problem.  No pain.

Unless I sleep on it wrong, while dislocated.  In which case the joint gets both painful and, for a while, too loose to hold – so I have to support it or at least be careful with it, until it tightens a little.

Likewise other joints, that don't usually pop in and out just like that, sometimes get stretched loose.  My knee caps, for a particularly annoying instance.  I've had to sleep for about a week with support for one or other of my knee caps five or six times, so far.

Annoying, but rarely really painful.

One of my good friends broke his leg 2 years ago, and while he was in the hospital, doped up on morphine, his mom brought him PEEWEE'S PLAYHOUSE to watch. He said it was the most terrifying experience of his entire life.
