1. Telling a patient she didn't really swallow a toothbrush
Gary ,   USA   (05.16.12)
That's like saying she was psychotic. Why would a woman ask for a non-existent toothbrush to be found and removed? These doctors should be reprimanded big time. If she said she swallowed a plastic toothbrush those doctors should have chosen tests that can identify plastic. BAD DOCTORS!
2. "Dr.'s thought I'm crazy,.."
Ali ,   Washington, DC   (05.16.12)
Their diagnosis is correct, yes you are crazy for swallowing a full size toothbrush.
3. Strange: doc cdn't see yet was able to manipulate toothbrush
Michael ,   California, USA   (05.16.12)
4. Her boyfriend...

...must be a happy man.
5. WARNING brushing your teeth can be hazardous to your health

The toothbrush is not something that can easily slip down your throat Its a long straight solid object so unless you chew it into little pieces I don't see how anybody can actually swallow a toothbrush. Maybe its time to put warning signs on the packet the brush comes in tell people toothbrushes are designed to clean your teeth not swallow.
6. No. 5

I don't mean to compare this woman to an animal, but have you ever seen the X-rays taken in veterinary offices of things that dog swallow? One dog swallowed a large carving knife because it had the remains of some roast beef on it. So when you see that, I guess it's not out of the question that a woman could swallow a toothbrush.
7. I just hope she doesn't try to reuse this toothbrush.
Sarah ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (05.16.12)
8. Bent over and it slipped down
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.16.12)
That's a pretty cute trick, defying gravity and all.
9. Those original doctors should get a leave of absence without
hippocrates ,   earth   (05.16.12)
pay and be required to take classes on sensitivity to patients. She could have gotten a life threatening infection, not to mention the development of severe pain.
10. Good result! Yet time wasted.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (05.16.12)
It is important to choose the relevant (even if more costly) scanning method from word go. All in all, all's well that ends well. REFUAH SHLEMAH.
11. accidentally? I do not think so...
