Leonid Rogozov cutting out his own appendix - 30 April 1961
Spoiler: READ THE STORY
Leonid Ivanovich Rogozov
14 March 1934 – 21 September 2000
"Soviet general practitioner who took part in the sixth Soviet Antarctic Expedition in 1960–1961. He was the only doctor stationed at the Novolazarevskaya Station and, while there, developed appendicitis, which meant he had to perform an appendectomy on himself in a case of Self-Surgery/Auto-appendectomy " - wikipedia
"In 1960, the young 27-year-old surgeon Leonid Rogozov joined the 6th Soviet Antarctic expedition and moved to the Antarctic. The following year he began working as a doctor at the newly opened Novolazarevskaya Station.
On April 29, 1961, Leonid Rogozov fell ill: weakness, nausea, elevated temperature and pain in the right iliac region. Rogozov instantly diagnosed himself: acute appendicitis. The problem was that he was the only doctor at the station. Besides, he couldn’t be transported away – there were no aircraft at the nearby stations. In any case, the bad weather ruled out flying.
A complication in the form of peritonitis could kill him, which is why Rogozov had to act fast.
On April 30 the surgery started. Leonid was assisted by meteorologist Alexander Artemyev, who helped with the medical instruments, and mechanical engineer Zinovy Teplinsky, who held a mirror and a lamp.
Rogozov was in semi-lying position on the left side. After injecting a local anesthesia with Novocain, he made a 12 cm incision in the right iliac region. Partly with a help of the mirror and partly by touch, he started to search for his appendix.
The sight of Leonid Rogozov searching for the appendix in his guts almost caused his assistants to faint. Station head Vladislav Gerbovich, who also attended the surgery, recalled that the two assistants were whiter than a sheet, but made great efforts to stay calm.
30-40 minutes after the surgery began, Rogozov felt very weak and dizzy, forcing him to make small breaks – every 5-10 seconds each 5 minutes. The doctor tried to stay calm and collected during the whole process.
Still, the final part almost cut Rogozov’s tolerance. "Finally here it is, the cursed appendage! With horror I notice the dark stain at its base. That means just a day longer and it would have burst… My heart seized up and noticeably slowed, my hands felt like rubber. Well, I thought, it's going to end badly and all that was left was removing the appendix," he recalled.
The surgery took 1 hour 45 minutes in total, and ended successfully. In 5 days his temperature normalized, and 2 days later after that the stitches were removed.
When Leonid Rogozov returned home, he was greeted as a real celebrity and national hero. He became popular not only in the Soviet Union, but abroad as well."
