Dr. Leonid Rogozov performing an appendectomy on himself.
I always thought the scene in the movie Master and Commander, where Dr. Stephen Maturin performs surgery to remove a bullet on himself, was a bit far-fetched. But it turns out that even in the field of self-surgery, reality surpasses fiction.
As List Universe’s Top 10 list of self-surgeries shows, removing a bullet from your own abdomen is merely an outpatient procedure, compared to what have actually been done over the years.
Thanks to T for the tip!
