Grossness

This is by the most disgusting medical procedure I think I have ever read about. I hope I, or anyone I know, never has to undergo it.

Not for the squeamish:

Don't knock it...
Hate to break it to you, but without too many details (confidentiality), I know patients who have had this done. It has worked well from what I understand. So, in addition to picking a medical power of attorney, consider selecting who among your friends and family you would pick to give you some of their gastric contents. YUM!

I'm not saying I would never do it, just that I hope I never have to. :)
