You haven't seen this one!


Well blog land is next to comatose lately - are we all over it?

Or are we leading busy lives?

Well, I saw the most intriguing and exciting dvd this afternoon that I have ever seen in my whole life.

It was the most expensive dvd I have ever purchased also!

It was the dvd of the man's prostate operation!

Yes....I can hear you from here. We requested the dvd of the operation and this afternoon I sat down, with the man, totally glued to the tv set and watched him being sliced, cauterised, snipped, sewn all from within the abdominal cavity!

Mmmmmmmm.

Did I have lunch?

No.

But it was simply amazing.

Especially the part where the robotic tools slip in a little scoop thingy that looks like a fishing net, open it, plop in the cut prostate, close the scoopy thing up and remove it through the tube that is stuck in just above the man's belly button.

Here, I present this frozen moment in time of just that- for your astonishment.
Remember, this is happening inside the abdominal cavity which has been inflated with gas to give the surgeon space. There were six incision holes made all together to allow for instuments, which were normally three at a time ( one sucky thingy,and two cutting and caterising thingys) and a camera. So you are seeing what the surgeon was seeing while he was sitting at his machine on the other side of room.
So cool eh!!!

Not sure what to say! It's either really interesting, or really gross. Or possibly a little of each!
