Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News

First a surgeon in China who was trying to correct the limp of a five-year-old boy had to apologize because — Whoops! — he lengthened the wrong leg. It seems the boy was anesthetized while on his back, then flipped over on his stomach to be operated on. Hey, that’s why they make Sharpies. Meanwhile in Brazil, a woman who had a stomach ache for 23 years found out the cause when doctors finally took some X-rays. It seems her previous doctors had left a scalpel in her lower abdomen in 1984 when she’d had a C-section. The scalpel is scheduled to be removed later this month. Hopefully they won’t flip her over by mistake before they operate.
