    Minn. surgeon needs two tries to remove appendix

    SHAKOPEE, Minn. – A state investigative report said a surgeon performed an appendectomy on the same patient twice after he mistakenly removed a piece of fatty tissue instead the first time. The Star Tribune reported that the surgeon realized his mistake two days after the first operation after a hospital pathologist reported what was removed was "not an appendix."

    The patient had been complaining of pain and fever and was ordered back for a second surgery......

    That scares me about the medical field.
    QA is done after the patient is sown back up and recovering.
    Its better to lose the first game than the last one.
