    A question about surgery?

    Just wondering does anyone know if a surgeon cuts an organ out can you request to keep it? also can you ask them to record them doing the procedure?

    Cheers if anyone knows

    frame it

    depends what it is i guess, when my brother had his appendix out they offered him it in a little jar and when i had my discs removed they did the same. major organs i doubt very much

    You can always ask them.
    I was shown photos from inside me from when I had an operation, I don't think I'd ever want to see the photos ever again tbh, wasn't particularly nice!
    I doubt you would get them to do a full recording of the op as you would have to get someone to stand there filming it, you would probably just maybe get a copy of the ones they take anyway (if they take any at all).

    can't even keep your tonsills anymore ...

    Also when i got married, they removed my spine and balls - didn't get to keep either !

    They didn't record mine last week but i was allowed to watch them live on screen working on my heart

    i had my gallbladder removed and they didnt show me anything, i thought they might of shown me the stones but glad they didnt in a way as im very squeamish.

    I remember Hugh Fernley Wittingstall cooking up some human parts. But can't see a hospital handing them over.

    Removed tissues are treated as clinical waste and have to be properly … Removed tissues are treated as clinical waste and have to be properly disposed of - they should not be given to patients.Video recordings of operations are not normal - there's always a chance of litigation and surgeons are adverse to operating under "Big Brother" conditions. If it's for teaching purposes however then it may be allowed. Who would you get to film it anyway? Or do you just mean a laparoscopic camera recording?




    Yeah was hoping for a laparoscopic recording!

    Lol OP has some weird open body fetish going on

    I woke up in the middle of a colonoscopy... There were pictures on the screen that nobody should see of themselves!!

    Ok. You'll be strapped to the table, 'painted' with antiseptic solution … Ok. You'll be strapped to the table, 'painted' with antiseptic solution and draped. The bed is tilted head down and the surgeon makes a small hole just above or just below the bellybutton. An instrument in passed into the abdomen and carbon dioxide is pumped in so that a 'space' is created inside. 2 more small cuts are made so that more instruments can be passed. The gallbladder, its cystic duct, artery and common bile duct are identified. The cystic duct is freed, clipped and cut, then the artery. The gallbladder is freed from its bed and pulled out through the hole - if it's as swollen as you say then the hole may need to be made a bit bigger. A couple of stitches may be used to close the holes (optional) and steristrips applied on top. Next thing you know, you are waking up in recovery.



    Ah, you go to the same barbers as me.
