The lawsuit said Galbreath instructed David to have X-rays taken at a chiropractor's office, rather than at an emergency room. David had the X-rays taken at a nearby chiropractic center and brought them back for Galbreath to read, it said. Galbreath spotted the screwdriver "on the stomach" and instructed David to eat a diet high in fiber and to look for the screwdriver after bowel movements.

You can never find one of those really small screw drivers when you need it.

She suffered "loss of her ability to make money"? As what - a sword swallower?

Did he charge her for the screwdriver?

Why was a dentist using a screwdriver?

Someone will lose his left nut over this.

I'll bet it was no fun for Ms. David.

My left lower quandrant keeps wanting to check out, and I have to remind it that it is not a hotel.

That dentist is going to get screwed. What goes around, comes around. Or so my mother always said.

Shoddy reporting -- what kind of screw was the screwdriver designed for: slotted, phillips, torx, or something else?

Scary quote: "Galbreath did not return a message left at his Nicholasville Road practice ..."

The dentist practices on a road? Um ... growing trend for "drive-thru" businesses ... but this is goin' beyond the beyond ...

Well, the fear and discomfort would've been bad enough, but the ewww-yuck factor of having to screen/scan/sift through every vowel movement for a month can hardly be compensated for in a court of law.

Shoot, I've been taking fiber to get cleaned out.
Why am always late on these research reports?

I can't imagine how intoxicated I'd have to get for anyone to convince me enough to eat a screwdriver.
