Awful incompetence. Remarkable recovery story on a much more hopeful note.

You would think the Swedes would have had the basics of surgery planning figured out by now, no? I wonder, is this a 1-in-a-million occurrence, or does this shit happen more often than we think it does?

If you think this shit was unusual then, yes, it does happen more often than you think.

I still think it's unusual. The debate is over what's the probability the doctors and the anesthesiologist will go out to lunch while you're groggy and opened up on the operating table: something like 0.01%, 0.1%, 1%, or 10%?

Go out to lunch, go get a cup of coffee, get bored waiting around and go for a quicky in the closet, go to sleep, pick their nose and space out, space out ogling the nurse's butt, tell themselves their pay from Big Brother ain't worth this shit so fuck it.....
There is a big list of motivations and moments, in Medica Pepeana, Tecumseh.
I bet this shit happens literally every day.
