Emergency room physician often see patients who have stuck unusual things in unusual places, but Dr. Roger Goldenberg and his wife, Nurse Wendy Goldenberg, are still buzzing about one woman who got a vibrator stuck in the most bizarre place imaginable.
The woman came into the Kansas hospital where they work complaining about the pain in her nether regions caused by the vibrator.
Wendy Goldenberg assumed the vibrator could only be stuck in the vagina or the anus.
She was wrong.
"When [the patient] said, 'Neither one,' I knew there was something out of the ordinary," Wendy said on an episode of "Sex Sent Me To The E.R." "She said, 'It's where I urinate.'"
This didn't make sense to Wendy.
"There is a little hole that's your urethra, and your urine comes out of it," she said. "I said 'That's really impossible.'"
The woman's boyfriend insisted that his girlfriend was telling the truth. Somehow during sex, a pinky-sized vibrator slipped out of his finger and went up the urethra.
Roger Goldenberg was still skeptical.
"[The urethra] can stretch out a little bit, but not as a general rule. Not that much," he said on the episode.
The suffering woman was taken to an examination room and placed on the pelvic table. Wendy still was thinking there had to be another explanation besides the urethra.
"There is no way this happened," she said. "She probably has it in her vaginal area and it just feels like it's somewhere else."
Roger started examining the woman's pelvic area with his speculum.
"I start performing the exam and the speculum starts vibrating in the hand," he said. "You could feel it vibrating."
Sure enough, the vibrator was in the bladder.
"I couldn't believe it!" he said.
Wendy Goldenberg points out that kidney stones -- which are only 3 to 5 millimeters wide -- are big enough to cause severe pain in that area.
"So to realize that a vibrator went up the urethra? That has got to be be severely painful for the poor gal," she said.
"Sex Sent Me To The E.R." airs Saturday on TLC. Based on the carefree attitude of the Goldenbergs, one can assume the woman was able to have the vibrator removed from her buzzing bladder.
