    Can You Make It Through These Medical Horror Stories Without Feeling Queasy?

    When it gets too much, you know what to do.

    We expected some nasty things to be described. But we certainly didn't expect the carnival of pure horror that resulted.

    The thread is too awful to display on its own terms. Every tale has therefore been given a lovely picture to keep it company. If you're struggling (and you will), just click the other box.
