    I think I’d have had to tell that patient he ain’t gonna make it. Not sure I’m up for a mid flight piss cocktail. Sucks to be him..

    Imagine how good you'd have to be to succeed at a career in medicine with the name Dr. Sucks.

    Right after they land, a flight attendant shows up with a portable pump and says "Oh, I forgot we had this on board!"

    And that's when the fight started.

    I haven't clicked on the link yet and after reading some of the post I don't think I'm going to.
    Saved a life I'm guessing which is good.

    Did the doc tell the patient, "Well, urine luck today."

    The worst part is the patient kept ordering drinks for the duration of the flight.

    I know someone this happened to. He was out-of-town at a business meeting. At dinner, he had two-and-a-half glasses of red wine, to which his body had an allergic reaction causing his prostate to begin to swell. That next morning he labored to urinate. Stupidly, rather than visit a hospital where he was, he decided to instead catch his scheduled flight back home and then deal with it. It's a decision made all the dumber once one considers all the potential delays in modern air travel.

    While no in-flight medical procedures were required, as his prostate continued to swell, he was in agony. Upon landing, he could barely walk. He took a taxi directly to the nearest hospital.

    The normal bladder can hold about 400 mls of fluid during the day. At nightime, it can hold about 800 mls. When the ER doc finally got a catheter jammed up the fellow's johnson, he gushed out 1,600 mls of urine.

    I can't even imagine . . .

    Moral of the story: If you're not feeling well, get your butt to a doctor before you make things worse for yourself . . . and for everyone else.
