Woman Goes for Leg Operation, Gets New Anus Instead

A German retiree is taking a hospital to court after she went in for a leg operation and got a new anus instead, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

The woman woke up to find she had been mixed up with another patient suffering from incontinence who was to have surgery on her sphincter.

The clinic in Hochfranken, Bavaria, has since suspended the surgical team.

Now the woman is planning to sue the hospital. She still needs the leg operation and is searching for another hospital to do it.

This strikes me as prudent.

So much for socialized medicine. For the Germans, all they can do is bend over and smile, whether they need to or not.

Forgive my naiveness, but how do you get a new anus? Isn’t it just skin? Did she get a new sphincter too? Or is sphincter the same as a rectum is the same as anus?

How many times has someone ever walked into a hospital and said, “Hi, I’m here for my anus surgery.”

I bet that has NEVER happened.

"Forgive my naiveness, but how do you get a new anus? Isn’t it just skin?"

If I'm not mistaken, the anus is, technically speaking, the opening, so I'm not sure how the new one might be any different than the old one...kind of like, "How much dirt is in a hole that measures 2' x 2' x 2'?"

Yes I agree. I was in the hospital and came out sicker than when I went in but nothing like this happened.

It made me think that it's that time of year to do some core aeration to my lawn. Poke some new holes to spur new growth and a healthy turf.
