A patient came into post-op recovery after an appendectomy. Everything looked fine, but he kept complaining about a terrible headache and tenderness on the side of his head.
There was no reason he should be having this much pain; especially in his head. The doctor was called, just to check that this wasn’t some odd shock reaction.
“Don’t worry about it!” The doctor replied. “I’m not surprised he has a headache. We ran out of anesthesia halfway through the procedure.”
