i took this photo off the net, but i once saw an identical x-ray.
it was in kalafong. the guy had the usual story of some amazingly ridiculous way he got the spoon into his rectum. it was something to do with painting his house and falling off the ladder and landing on the spoon. i did not ask why he was painting naked and i did not ask how the spoon happened to be standing on end (the narrow end) ready for the falling receptive anus. i just smiled and waved (apologies madagaskar) .
not too much to the story. i put in a proctoscope and grasped the spoon with a burkit. this i did in casualties. i only hope the patient cleaned the spoon well afterwards (depending on what he planned on doing with it of course).
when the case was presented to the prof, with a straight face he says, 'wat het jy vir hom gese? moenie roer nie, ek is nou daar.'
p.s, trust me, if you know afrikaans, this was seriously funny. to my international viewers, no translation can do it justice.
