One woman was apparently so "drunk in love" during a bedroom romp that she used a sex toy with her partner, inserting it into her vagina, and forgot to remove it--for 10 whole years!
The woman, now 38, recently visited the hospital complaining of severe weight loss, involuntary shaking, and mild incontinence. What doctors found left them speechless!
Going to the dentist isn't exactly anyone's idea of a good time, which is why I completely sympathize with 17-year-old Ashik Gavai. The Indian teen went into his doctor's office after noticing an abnormal growth in the bottom of his mouth that developed within the past few years. He underwent surgery where the dentist, Dr. Sunanda Dhivare-Palwankar, discovered that he had a single tooth that contained 232 other smaller molars, and had grown to the size of a small marble.
How bizarre is that?!
Sometimes you wonder how people can endure so much hardship. A Texas woman undergoing cancer treatment while pregnant then learned that the baby she was carrying had a heart defect and would need a transplant.
Riki Graves was eight weeks pregnant with her second child when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, according to a blog she wrote for Texas Children's Hospital. The 38-year-old woman stayed positive and received treatment. But then at 20 weeks into her pregnancy, she learned that her baby had a congenital heart defect. Her baby would need several heart operations and even so, Graves was told, might not survive the pregnancy.
Most people have heard of allergies to peanuts and pollen, but here's an allergy that may shock you: an 11-year-old boy had an allergic reaction to a first generation iPad.
The old iPad (released way back in 2010) contained Nickel, which is a common allergy and can also be found in cellphones and computers. The boy had a severe rash for several months and after dermatologists figured out what it was, the rash improved, according to a study released this week by the American Academy of Pediatrics. A cover was placed on the iPad to reduce contact with the metal.
Whenever I hear a story about women being born without vaginas, it still shocks me that they manage to go through life without any genitals. Which is why I was glad to hear there are some medical solutions to it. Recently a 26-year-old Argentinean woman who was born without a vagina because of a health condition called, Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, had one made in the most unconventional way.
The unidentified woman had surgery in San Martin, Buenos Aires where doctors performed a vaginaoplasty using the skin from her thigh!Continue Reading >
A 23-year-old woman is suing a doctor at Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he posted pictures of her without her consent online. Elena Chernyakova had been admitted to the hospital following an alcohol binge and called Dr. Vinaya Puppala because she trusted him and knew him as a family friend.
She was unconscious for eight hours and although she expected him to be professional, she later learned he handled her situation very lightly by taking pictures of her. The worst part is he posted them on Facebook and Instagram. Wow, what an A-hole!Continue Reading >
Words can't describe how horrified I was to see a baby being manhandled by a pediatrician. The shocking footage out of Venezuela shows this infant being treated by doctor Marcos Tulio Torres Finol in the most non-doctorly way. In fact, you wouldn't even handle your own child--no matter what their age--the way this man did.
Not surprisingly, this doctor is now being investigated by the Venezuelan Medical Federation for the after the graphic video was leaked. Thank God!Continue Reading >

Imagine how heartbreaking it would be if your child was completely unable to smile. Sarah Tassi and her husband, Jason, have never seen their 1-year-old son Preston smile due to a rare neurological disorder called Moebius Syndrome. The condition affects the muscles of the face and keeps sufferers from properly eating, drinking, and impacts speech development.
But there's hope for little Preston!Continue Reading >
