Andrew Walls underwent a colonoscopy at the Delaware Surgery Center on Oct 12, 2012. For this procedure he was placed under anesthesia. And when he woke, he was wearing pink women's underwear. According to a lawsuit he's just filed, he insists that when he "presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women's underwear and at no time did [he] voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women's underwear upon himself."
He's claiming the pink underwear caused him "severe emotional stress" as well as mental anguish, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. [Delaware Online

Frozen poop pills?!?
Yes, that is what they are using to treat Clostridium difficile, or C diff, a bacteria that when over abundant in the bowel causes debilitating diarrhea. Samples of feces from a healthy donor with a good bacterial balance in the bowel are put in capsules that are acid resistant and frozen. The capsule is acid resistant so it will not dissolve before carrying the good bacteria to the intestines where it is needed. It is frozen to make it easier for the patient to swallow. The treatment has been very successful and that is great, but I have one word for the Doctors involved: suppositories!
