Doctors Share The Craziest 'Oh F***' Experience They've Ever Had With A Patient
Is there such a thing as an "average" day for a doctor? So much can happen––and all at once––taking things from zero to sixty with barely a moment's notice.
After Redditor WafflesontheWeb asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what was the thing that made you go "Oh god, oh ****"?" doctors shared their most striking experiences with the patients in their care.
Warning: Some graphic content ahead.
"Literally saw someone..."
Literally saw someone have progression of a stroke in front of my eyes. My intern tells me that she's concerned about a patient because since the previous night he's had some right arm weakness. We go see him together. When starting out he is talking perfectly normal, but then all of a sudden he starts slurring his speech and half his face droops.
(Immediately called a stroke code, but he was outside the window for emergency intervention since his symptoms started the night before.)
"Those kids are the ones..."
Every kid that comes into the ED needing resuscitated from abuse. Those kids are the ones that keep me up at night.
When performing an emergency Caesarian and the baby's head is lodged so hard in the pelvis that it just won't come out. It is really scary.
Those poop events happen almost on a daily to weekly basis, especially on a gastro ward. Worst was a old little lady on an ITU ward who hadn't passed any thing for a couple weeks. We sent a nurse in with a commode pan, a few minutes later the nurse emerged holding the pan with a thin paper towel draped over a clearly overflowing stack of human faeces that was the size of a newborn.
"Hitting a pocket of pus..."
Hitting a pocket of pus as I removed a chest tube and all of the juice spewing out onto me.
Disimpacting a WW2 veteran who hadn't pooped in 2 weeks. Same result but with poop.
"I mean, not much after awhile..."
I mean, not much after awhile, but I do remember this guy with his renal function in every way but the right one. He had collapsed in the out patients department while waiting for his heart clinic appointment. After he's resuscitated and everything, I'm asking him how much he drinks (He reeked of booze) and he says around 2-3 bottles of whiskey. Now that's a fair bit for a week, but people always underestimate so I go to clarify:
"So two or three bottles a week, any beer with that?"
"No, two or three a day. And sometimes some beer, yeah."
"How much beer would you say-"
He then starts seizing on me and his vitals drop through the floor. Yeah, he was drinking so much apparently the 2-3 hour wait for his appointment resulted in him going into withdrawal and seizing. You ever try to correct someone's electrolyte levels when their blood is mostly alcohol? It's a bad time. He arrested multiple times and it took us a solid three weeks to get his blood work anywhere near normal. This dude would be stable for a few seconds and then immediately swing into horribly unstable. Can't believe he was walking around like that for months beforehand. His blood had enough alcohol in it you could've run a car off it. If someone had lit a match around him I wouldn't have been surprised if he straight up exploded.
"During my time in the NICU..."
Pediatric Resident here.
During my time in the NICU I had several „Oh shit" moments, I think everyone of us does. In one of my first night shifts a 500g preterm newborn on non-invasive ventilation stopped breathing. I immediatelly started to bag her, which usually works nicely to stabilize the patient. Didn't work this time. I had the nurses call my attending to get here ASAP but he was about 20 minutes away, which was way too long for the patient. I had to intubate an extreme preterm baby on my own for the first time. The patient became bradycardic very quickly, the nurse started chest compressions, while another nurse handed me the laryngoscope. For some reason I stayed relatively calm and just thought „you better not f*** this up". I successfully intubated on my second try, heartrate shot back up, O2 saturation followed shortly after. We put her on a ventilator and when we were all done my legs just gave out. I had to go back to the doctors room, my whole body was shaking.
"I was saying that under my breath..."
I am a doctor. I was saying that under my breath as we were losing a 13 month old kid during a resuscitation.
"He used to tape a plastic shopping bag..."
There was a clinic patient with a colostomy who was not performing good maintenance. He used to tape a plastic shopping bag over his ostomy. You would smell him before you saw him. There was no amount of mint oil on the planet that took the smell away from the room and it hung there for days. It also didn't help that the guy was a raging putz who was non-compliant and likely on drugs.
"12 year old comes in..."
12 year old comes in with complaint of double vision. Came on suddenly a few nights ago and has slowly gotten worse. I perform cover test to assess eye alignment, but it doesn't make sense. She has severe divergence excess. Basically, the eyes are pointing outward more while focusing on something far away compared to close up. For eyes, this doesn't happen often because they have to converge (or point toward the nose) much more for an object up close. Then, it dawned on me. She had seen another eye doctor for an annual exam the month previous with absolutely no symtpoms; it had to be a tumor. We refer her out for surgery that day, but the hospital is hemming and hawwing. They put her off because "oh well she can just close an eye if she's seeing double."
When they finally X-Rayed her MORE THAN A MONTH LATER, the tumor had aldeady compressed her optic nerve and she lost all sight in one eye.
"Little old lady signs an RMA..."
EMT here. 3am call for leg pain. Little old lady signs an RMA and refuses transport to the hospital. Her husband pulls me aside and asks me to try to convince her to go because he's afraid that if it worsens, he won't be able to get her there himself and doesn't want to call for an ambulance again. I talk her into going-she refuses a stretcher or stair chair and climbs in the ambulance herself. We're on our way and I notice one leg is significantly shorter than the other. Yup-femur fracture.
"Our suspicion index..."
We were a Navy ship in a support role with a full surgical suite but minimal facilities in total. We had 2 doctors and 20 corpsmen. We were in port, and got a call from a small ship one dock over: Their corpsman was out, could they send a 3rd Class with chest pains over?
Our suspicion index is low - it's pretty rare for active duty sailors to have heart attacks, and 3rd Class is a low rank so it's someone young. So sure, send him over. What are the symptoms?
Well, he's got chest pains, but he thinks it might just be the burritos he had for lunch.
Our suspicion index is very low.
SO, we wait for this guy to come over. We get a call from the quarterdeck - he's here, they just walked up the gangplank.
Ok, our suspicion index is very, very, low.
Patient arrives. He is a middle-aged black man, a reservist. Suspicion index raises. He's holding his chest, sweating, and panting. Suspicion index to high. He takes of his shirt, he's got a scar from previous open heart surgery!
Panic Stations! Immediate EKG, Nitro under tongue, etc.
Turns out it was just the burritos for lunch, but things got tense for a bit when he first presented.
"I spent at least 30 minutes..."
Had a delirious post-operative patient following resection of some part of the colon(i forget exact details but probably left hemi) who had yanked off his ostomy bag and surgical dressing over a midline abdominal incision. There was melenic stool(dark black stool because of metabolized blood which has a very special stink) all over the place including within the surgical wound. I spent at least 30 minutes irrigating the wound and cleaning the patient. It was a f****** nightmare.
"As a student..."
As a student I was doing research in cardiac surgery and watching an aortic valve replacement. They'd used a minithoracotomy approach (6cm cut on the right/front of the chest wall) instead of the big midline one you usually see in cardiac surgery. He'd just come off bypass (the machine that acts as heart and lungs for a patient) and the blood pressure plummeted. I saw a systolic of 12mmHg on the art line (normal is 120, the pressure of static blood in blood vessels is around 7). A surgeon jumps on the chest to start CPR and every pump results in a huge gush of blood from the incision. The new aortic valve had torn off, so he was losing blood into his chest (and onto the floor) at a rate of ~6L/min (1.5gallons/min - basically your entire blood volume in 60 seconds).
Surgeon is frantically working in this tiny incision with everyone staring at him and yells "We're going back on bypass". Keeps working for another 15 seconds, then "SAW. NOW." He pulled off a thoracotomy (cutting skin, splitting sternum) and bypass cannulation in about 2.5 minutes. I've seen this take 40 minutes. Valve fixed, patient taken to ICU under sedation. No idea what the neurological outcome was, but the collective sphincter tone in that room would would make diamonds from charcoal.
"Grab the chart..."
First year doc on a medical ward, no seniors around. Nurse flags me "Hey doc your patient in 2 has a pretty low BP." Poke my head in and see someone I've never met before, who has the look of a dying man, with a systolic of 62. Grab the chart to get some fluids into him while I figure out what the fuck is going on and see that he'd been given 4 litres (1 gallon) over the past 3 hours. Panic.
Turns out he'd been admitted from ED 6 hours prior with biliary sepsis (not usually my team's responsibility) and only just arrived on ward. Things that went wrong: Admitting Dr did not tell ward staff they'd admitted a sick++ patient, admitting Dr did not see the patient again after initial assessment, patient sat in ED for 6 hours awaiting a ward bed, patient transferred to ward in septic shock, ward Dr not told patient had arrived on ward. Poor guy ended up dying a few hours later, alongisde my faith in that hospital's systems. There are SO many steps where someone could have said "hey something is wrong" before we got to the subtext of "Can you make the call to press the buzzer so I don't get in trouble for doing it if I'm wrong?"
"I was on my first practical as a nursing student..."
I was on my first practical as a nursing student and at morning handover we had been told one of the patients during the night had been delirious and ripped out his catheter (tube placed up the shaft of the penis into the bladder). This issue with this was that you don't just slide a tube in, once it's in you inflate a small balloon to prevent it from slipping out and when you remove it you need to deflate it in order to get it out.
Obviously the patient had not known/been able to deflate the balloon so it tore up the inside of his penis on the way out. Initially, the nurses/doctor on the nightshift had been able to replace the catheter and there seemed to be no further issues.
Around midday the patient started to become delirious again and the on call doctor said we needed to remove the catheter. I will never be able to get the image of bright red blood literally pouring out of this man's limp penis any time it was held in a position other than vertical.

With millennials now reaching their thirties and forties, many are looking back on the childhood they had compared to the ones they're witnessing now.
With technology advances and a constant need to impress, these two worlds of childhood are undeniably different.
Redditor professorf asked:
"What did your generation have that kids need more of today?"
"Unstructured playtime outside with others that are a variety of ages. Not under the eyes of an adult."
"This was my favorite part of being a kid. There were 10-12 kids within a six-year age range on my street and we'd all be out playing between multiple blocks, houses, and wooded areas. Our parents would just yell or whistle from the porch at dinner time, and sometimes we'd go back out again after!"
"Beyond playing and having fun, being unsupervised and big kids amongst little kids provides so much mental enrichment that kids don't get sitting in front of a screen being constantly tended to. Problem-solving, imagination, cooperation, taking care of each other, sharing, working things out, navigation, self-awareness... on and on."
Ghosts in the Graveyard
"I miss playing 'Ghosts in the Graveyard'!"
"I grew up with an actual cemetery in my backyard (once you hopped a fence, of course) and you haven't really played 'Ghosts in the Graveyard' until you played it in an actual graveyard!"
"Typing classes. Most Gen Z/Alpha kids grew up with tablets and maybe a laptop, no desktops. Teachers assume they know how to type, but they've only done it with their thumbs, they don't have the muscle memory for a traditional keyboard."
"The ability to type on a physical keyboard is really important in the working world, and a lot fewer kids can do it well these days."
"We need to bring back typing classes, along with how file/folder/directory systems work in general, a lot of college students don't know how to use them!"
"Toys that were just toys. Not everything had to be educational. Just let kids play and explore and discover. Let them get bored."
It Takes a Village
"Village grandparents. My parents would leave me with my grandparents for months during summer. We had a large, large yard with many old collapsing or collapsed buildings, a variety of animals roaming around, and a few gardens."
"I’d climb trees, and buildings, play with the animals, and go fishing in the small river near the house with a self-made fishing rod made out of a bottle, rope, and an old nail."
"I never caught anything. Best time of my life."
Thinking Outside the Box
"Freedom to explore, invent, and create. Today's kids are so scheduled with activities and online all of the time. Getting out in the world without an agenda would be helpful."
"I'm now seeing college graduates who have a hard time doing anything other than following explicit instructions from their boss. They don't problem-solve. They don't innovate on their own."
"I can teach someone numbers or the structure of loops or conditional statements. I can't fix an issue with someone not understanding why they would choose a certain solution or not being able to relate what they are doing to the software module's objectives. I see perfect Leetcode problems with no understanding of the problem they're solving or even why they want to be an engineer. Or what to do if something varies slightly from what they memorized."
"AI will take over a lot of jobs if kids can't think nonlinearly or relate information. ChatGPT already writes code akin to what I'm seeing from young engineers. It doesn't have human reasoning about the problem and why you'd need to solve it a particular way, but it sure codes a variety of solutions quickly. A senior engineer can replace the junior engineers who don't think through the problem with AI."
"I feel like kids have no tolerance for 'boredom.' I try to tell the youngins to let their minds wander and allow thoughts to flow, but they feel compelled to stuff every moment with games or videos."
"They’re not even enjoying music anymore. It’s all, 'Can I play this song? It’s from a meme.' And they change the song before it’s over because there’s less appreciation for composition anymore."
"No patience. That's a side effect of the tech culture. My friend's kid is 10, and she's only known the instant gratification of TV, iPad, and Nintendo Switch all without ads. She never has to wait. If she's losing a game, she hits the reset button. Doesn't like a song, she skips."
"The rest of us grew up with limited or no tech. We had commercials on TV. Our favorite shows were only on once a day at a specific time. We were prisoners to whatever the DJ was playing on the radio. Sometimes our friends were grounded, so we'd have to play alone."
"Now I have friends with kids who place limits on the 'electronic babysitter.' These kids do have patience and they use their imagination. So there's hope."
"I love technology for its educational pieces. I avoid my kids on YouTube etc. They are aware of those people but not how you access it from their tablet. Coding, PBS Games, reading, writing, math, stem games."
"Kids today need time to just be kids. I believe study hall should exist after their main subjects. They can do homework, tutoring, and extracurriculars afternoon until their parents pick them up or they ride home on a bus. It should be a time of exploration, soft social skills through board games, etc."
"They are missing, and even daily living skills because the world is always on the go."
"They need access to actual food. Vegetable gardens, rabbit pens, etc. Helping others. Time to just be kids, make mistakes and get messy without it being filmed. We all f**k up that doesn't mean it needs to be filmed and posted or shamed for it."
"They need time to build resilience, kindness, and just to be with their family and friends. Access to actual public transportation. I could go on and on."
Being Held Accountable
"Accountability! Especially in schools. In my district, they think it’s unfair to the children and can hurt a child’s self-esteem if they’re held back in school. So, even if they never do a single assignment, flunk every class, and learn nothing, they advance to the next grade."
"Because of this, I have sixth graders who don’t know how to spell anything, don’t know punctuation, have no idea what to do with commas, and have no clue that they need to capitalize the first letter of a sentence. They don’t know how to write a paragraph. They are disrespectful to teachers and just don’t care because it doesn’t matter if they flunk. It is just sad."
"The outdoors without electronics. We have nature trails that border where I work and when I see people out 'enjoying' the great outdoors, most of them have their faces buried in their phones."
"There is so much beauty in nature and being able to observe it can teach a person a lot."
Less Technology Dependence
"Growing up in the '90s/early '00s was a lot of fun. H**l, I didn’t get my first cell phone until ninth grade."
"Kids are surprised when I tell them I had to share it with my brother, had no internet access, and it only had enough memory to store 50 texts. If you reached that, you had to delete some in order to receive new ones. Oh, and I got so good at texting without looking at my phone."
"I'm Gen Z but I see older people being a lot more optimistic. If something fails, they try something else. A lot of young people are so fed up with life (me included), they can barely function and they either isolate themselves or indulge in obscene hedonism."
"Free time (too much homework in my opinion)."
"Privacy (social media and constant connection via a phone/laptop)."
"Downtime (time to just chill and do nothing, they feel like every moment needs to be filled or they’re missing out)."
"Ignorance (they’re introduced to world/political issues way younger)."
Kids Being Kids
"A youth without having to be perfectly styled and ready for social media..."
"We played. Outside. In the mud and snow and in the summer's heat. We came back with dirty clothes, freezing cold noses, and wet from jumping into the nearby lake. We didn't care about our clothes, about our "style" and happily wore the same green t-shirt and jeans every day (of course, cleaned)."
"We knew when to come home , not because we had a smartphone or a smartwatch, but because of the sunset. I'll never forget sitting on the porch, watching the sunset, eating ice cream, and being completely and undeniably unworried."
"No one captured every third step on digital videos and posted them on every single social media platform. No one needed 'likes' and 'retweets.' No one bullied you because you didn't have the iPhone 383637 S for ˘$3000..."
"We were KIDS. Just. Kids. Not miniature adults with bad manners and mobile phone addiction."
For people who grew up in the early 2000s or sooner, these memories are undeniably nostalgic, and even sad, knowing that today's kids won't share in the same memories.
The biggest takeaways seemed to be the push for a full schedule and impressing the internet, when really, the point used to be to unplug and relax with friends.
Now that pandemic protocols have been lifted for the most part, inexperienced travelers should take advantage of the time to visit places they've always wanted to see or dreamed of seeing in lockdown.
Unfortunately, a myriad of excuses can delay one's inclination to wanderlust–including a lack of finances and a fear of the unknown.
But thankfully, Reddit is here to prove it can be a great resource for travel information that isn't generally known to the public.
Inspired by a search for wisdom, Redditor HugeDismissal asked:
"What is your best travel tip that most people don't know?"
Know before you go.
Sharing The Journey
"Let your family back home know your travel itinerary."
Price Search Hack
"Try searching for flights in the airline’s original language. I once saved $700 booking tickets in Peru by using Spanish rather than English."
"When flights get canceled, don’t stand in line to talk to an agent. Call the airline."
For packing, it might behoove you to keep these in mind.
"Roll everything, fold nothing."
A Perfect Disguise
"For photo equipment or all kind of expensive stuff: put some duct tape on it. If it looks broken, nobody wants to steal it."
Once on a flight, these tips may come in handy.
"Three things; 1.) bring an orange. If someone you are sitting next to smells bad you can open the orange up as a natural deodorizer. 2.) Bring a spare pair of socks and change socks after you are settled on your flight, train, etc. Put the sweaty socks away in a plastic bag. Dry socks after a long day of travel feel luxurious. 3.) Stupid and Cheerful. A cop stops you in a foreign country? Stupid and cheerful. Never be belligerent. A border guard says your papers aren’t in order? Stupid and cheerful. The airline says you are too late to board? Stupid and cheerful. Cheerful always works better than aggressive. And it transcends culture. I knew an elderly couple who literally drove across the whole of Africa and “stupid and cheerful” was their advice. It’s far harder to punish someone if they simply claim ignorance and are smiling."
The Best Travel Companion
"Who you go with is way more important than where you go."
Once you reach the destination, now what?
Booking Affording Lodging
"The best room in a cheaper hotel is often better than a standard room in a more expensive hotel. When looking for luxury on a budget, don't overlook the cheaper hotels - they often have fantastic suites for what you'd pay for a standard room somewhere pricier."
Not Like The Romans Do
"Nobody wakes up early. Like you can wake up before dawn and get fantastic golden hour pics when the city is empty then go back for breakfast and a nap before heading out for lunch."
"Like the best city for this is Rome. No one is around and you can get wide shots that would never happen during the day and the lighting is better."
"If you're asking for an opinion, don't ask the opinion of someone who's being paid to provide it."
"Want to know where the best meal near your hotel is? The cleaner isn't getting a kickback from the nearest steakhouse, but the concierge probably is."
"Want to know the easiest way to get to the airport? The front desk clerk is going to tell you to hire the hotel preferred transfer, but the barman will probably tell you what train to catch for 1/20th of the price."
Now that you have these handy tips jotted down, there are no more excuses to delay travel plans.
The world is your oyster.
So why not take advantage of it?
Because trust me, once you get out of your bubble, you'll be glad you got to experience the wonder of discovery and adventure you can't find by looking at pictures or videos of the places you've been longing to visit.

History is made on a daily basis.
Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.
Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.
Not all of them, though!
It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.
Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day
Redditor enginearz was eager to hear about historical figures people were surprised to learn were still alive, leading them to ask:

Perhaps what's most admirable, is that even when these astonishing people do eventually pass, they will continue to live on and change the world with the remarkable work they did.
We all indulge in fast food from time to time.
Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.
Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.
Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.
We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.
But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.
Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.
Redditor BungOnMimosas was curious to hear what people considered to be the most overhyped fast food chains around, leading them to ask:
"What do you think are the most overrated fast-food chains? Why?"
"Food As It Should Be"... Or Not...
"I know it's not technically 'fast food', but Panera Bread pisses me off."

"I mean, that's a pretty low bar, but it is what it is."- gnatman66happy ronald mcdonald GIF by McDonald's CZ/SKGiphy
"The majority of them, especially the really big ones (McDonald's, Wendy's, BK, Pizza Hut, etc)."
"The prices are no longer fast food prices and the quality is not there like it used to be."
"Far better local options that cost roughly the same at the end of the day."- senorita_diablo

No two people have the same taste in food.
Some people know to avoid crappy food, while others eat literally nothing else.
