“My Jaw is Already Locked”
In the south, people frequently referred to a tetanus shot as a “lockjaw shot.” One night, the nurse told our patient she was going to give him a lockjaw shot.
When he refused to take the shot, the nurse asked him why. He had recently broken his jaw and had his jaw wired closed. He refused to take the shot, because, he said, “My Jaw is already locked.”
“My Marriage is Going Downhill”
A seventy-six-year-old lady was brought in by her daughter who had noted the patient’s prolapsed uterus for the first time. This is a condition where the structures supporting the uterus in the pelvis become lax, allowing it to slide down into and even protrude from the vagina. Though the patient said the condition had been there for years, the daughter was startled by it and wanted to make sure there was nothing that needed to be done.
The patient denied any symptoms but said her “sex life is terrible” and “her “marriage is going downhill” because her uterus was filling and sticking out of her vagina.
