TB: I’m going to make the injection as easy as possible. On the count of three, you’re gonna feel a pinch and a sting. P: Oh yeah? TB: If you feel like moving your foot don’t. Just push your heel like this straight down into the chair. Okay? P: Oh, okay. TB: I’m not just putting a topical we’re doing an injection to numb the area that way when we try to find that piece that’s in there, you don’t feel a single thing. P: Okay. TB: Okay, so I’m just gonna wipe this area down. P: Yes. TB: So on a count of three, you can push your heel straight down into the chair, okay, sir Okay, here we go. One, two, three. You okay? P: Yeah. TB: You’re doing ok? P: Yes. TB: Yeah, you’re a tough guy! (patient laughs) TB: Over 30 days with this! P: Yes, can you imagine? TB: I can’t, no. P: I thought it was going to be faster and I would see a surgeon right away but no. They just give me a tetanus vaccination and that’s all. Not even an antibiotic that time. TB: No, nothing. Huh? P: No, just tetanus vaccination. TB: Yes. P: They gave me just that one. And then it got worse, not worse, it was the same thing. TB: Okay. I’m gonna give you one more pinch, okay? P: Mm-hmm. TB: Here we go on three: one, two, three. Any pain? P: No. TB: So, like I said, I set everything up. P: mm-hmm TB: And make sure everything’s numb. Okay, sir. That wasn’t too bad? P: No. (?) Really. TB: Very good. P: Yeah. TB: So I’m just gonna wipe the area down with that antibacterial wipe. P: Yeah. TB: Okay. Do you mind telling the camera what happened exactly? Is that okay? P: Yeah. Yeah no problem. You’re the doctor. TB: No, no, just Jonathan, call me Jonathan. P: Oh, Jonathan. TB: And I’m just gonna be removing the dead skin and you just tell the camera what happened with this injury. So you stepped on something? You were taking out the garbage? P: No, I kicked a garbage bag. Do you believe it? I kicked the garbage upstairs was, you know, small garbage container we have and then I know what happened that time. It was so amazing! I thought I hit a plastic tube because I just found that one inside. TB: So did you break a piece off yourself or was everything all in the foot? P: No, that much was gone; it was broke, I think it was there that much. TB: Half a finger? P: Yeah, looks like yeah because I took off that much. P: and then left four millimeter more so maybe a half inch. TB: And you didn’t… P: And the other piece maybe broke in the garbage. I have a picture if you wanna see. TB: Sure. P: Yeah, this one I took. TB: And right away did you go to emergency? P: I took a picture after two weeks because they didn’t find that then I try to talk off the pus because they told me that is nothing in the x-ray and after two weeks, I took this one, look. (I took a photo after two weeks.) Jonathan. TB: Oh, geez! P: This picture, yeah. Because it was maybe the body push after that, right (body pushes it out)? TB: There’s a lot of bad tissue all in this area. P: Yes. TB: So the X-ray didn’t show anything? P: No the ultrasound, yes. They say the X-ray doesn’t show the metabolic maybe. Oh no, wood, sorry. Both pieces. TB: No not as well as if it was metal for sure. P: Yeah. The ultrasound (showed it). TB: And you’ve been walking around with everything still with this? P: Yes, I’m working, yeah, I just left work and come back because it’s enough. I don’t know. I guess you get more pain, right, because it swells? TB: So, how long did you spend at the emergency room the first time? P: Maybe more than three hours. TB: And they were digging around, weren’t they? P: No, you just wait in the waiting room. TB: No, but when he froze you and checked inside… P: The first time they didn’t check it, right?
And the second time they check it and finally the doctor sent me over there. They just give me tetanus injection. That’s it. Second time doctors say no, it’s still infected. I have to find the piece that I have inside. TB: Okay, what we’re gonna do I’m gonna put a tourniquet on your foot because it’s bleeding a little too much. P: Yes. TB: I’ll be able to see what’s going on. Oh my gosh! I’m gonna make sure the cameras is on when we see this thing. You okay? P: Yes. TB: Any pain? P: No. TB: You want to take a look? P: No. TB: Okay. It’s out now. P: Ahhh! I can’t believe you! You’re scaring me! TB: I scared you! Sorry! P: This is not 4mm! It’s a half inch! TB: That’s not 4mm! P: OMG! Can I take a picture? TB: You can take a picture. P: OMG! TB: Are you okay, sir? P: It’s beautiful! I appreciate… you save my life! P: I can’t believe it! TB: You okay? P: Yes. TB: Okay. So I’m just gonna flush that area out… no pain? P: No. TB: You see how it’s not bleeding anymore? P: No. TB: So now everything’s controlled. P: OMG! You made me so happy! You don’t know how! TB: I’m happy for you, sir. This is, I got shivers! P: OMG! Thank you! TB: When I saw the top part of it, I had shivers! Okay, so we’re gonna flush this guy out. We’re gonna pack it up. It’s a very deep wound. TB: Oh my gosh! P: OMG! I am happy anyway! I don’t care! (laughs) TB: No we’re okay now. P: Yes. TB: So I’ll show the camera one more time. Crazy! 32 days? P: More! 34! It was April 12th today is May 16 so 34, no? TB: How many trips to the… two trips to the emergency room? P: Two trips to emergency. They sent me to the the fracture, what was the name? TB: The Fracture Clinic. P: The Fracture Clinic. Also they just keep sending me and then they said no come back after another two weeks and the doctor gave me an antibiotic and he leave me like this that’s not even looking for. TB: And a lot of pills. P: Yes. TB: How many pills did you take in total? P: Over 90. TB: Over 90 pills? P: I have the box. I didn’t bring it for you. Over 90 pills. TB: Okay. So, we don’t want anything to fester in the wound, so we’re going to leave it open, okay? P: Umm-hmm. TB: If we put it up and there’s still debris, we want everything to close from the inside out. P: Okay. TB: All we have to do is dress it with some gauze like this and a wrap. I’m gonna give you all this together today. P: Okay. Maybe not to thick so I can wear the shoes? TB: No, I’m just gonna put enough to hold it on. If it bleeds through… P: Are you done? TB: All finished. P: OMG! So I don’t have to take any pill or anything? I still have some left but I won’t take it. TB: You just finished, right? P: I just finished TB: You should be okay. P: Okay. TB: But we’re gonna keep an eye on it. That’s why we have follow-up appointments just to make sure that, you know, it doesn’t get infected. P: Mm-hmm. TB: I would still take the pills… you have, just in case. P: Oh, I take the pills? TB: Yeah, just to be safe because it is very, very deep. P: Okay, I still have about ten pills in the box. TB: Okay. If not, I’m gonna give you another prescription. P: Yeah, just in case, yeah. TB: All done. P: OMG! Thanks a lot, man! I appreciate it, really! TB: You’re welcome! TB: So I’m just filming right now. You said how long for an appointment to get this surgically removed? P: One year. TB: They told you one year? P: Yeah, they told me year. TB: It’s gonna be fun to walk around with. P: I cannot believe how I could stay one year with this one. TB: No.

  9. pggysu says:

    Thank God you didn't give up on this poor man! What a tough determined guy to suck it up like that and still be working with the pain he surely experienced. So glad his path led to someone equally determined to solve the mystery and relieve the pain. Kudos, Doctor!

  10. EbonéeNails says:

    I had a piece of wood stuck in my foot but nothing like this 😲😲

  11. Sunni1Ib says:

    Another amazing job! I can't believe how long it took for your patient to get this resolved! Glad he the object was removed and he is on the mend!

  12. Stephy says:

    I can not imaging how much pain this man was in.

  13. Alessandro Gabaldo says:

    Brasilllll??? Alguém???? #bolsonaro 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  14. papillson says:

    this reminds me of my friends little brother getting a toothpick stuck in his knee at a party and her dad taking him into the bathroom and we just heard a scream and they came out with the toothpick

  15. Kala Shives says:

    Dr. You make me happy that this is out. Dude you make me have my kids in combat boots lol. Yikes!

  16. Ferdinand The Bull says:

    Great doctor!

  17. I'm kinda fucking stupid, but says:

    I had a huge splinter in my finger like that. It was in there was 1 1/2 months and I didn't let anyone touch it cause I'm a huge baby. I cut it out myself and it was filled with pus. I fudging did it… Still cant touch my finger without freaking out a little..

  18. DL Day says:

    What a blessing you are for this man!!

  19. Rhon D. Cruz says:

    Im happy for you Mr.Gru

  20. Knookie Cookie says:

    imagine getting your insides mixed ~-~

  21. SoftKJ says:

    This reminds me of when my little brother had a huge coconut thorn stuck in his feet and it was so deep, the doctors didn’t realize they haven’t removed it completely.

    It was my mom who took it once and for all after two weeks of him barely being able to walk. Mind you, he was 6 years or younger when this happened; he just turned 10 this year and this was at least 4 years ago. AT least.

  22. Maggie Toth says:

    There was a whole CAVE in his toe oh my gosh

  23. Fin Pierce says:

    So are you a podiatrist?

  24. A Poe says:

    Oh you poor man! I feel so bad he has to wait this long to have this removed. Thank God for this doctor that cared enough to finally find out what was happening. He could have lost his foot or life even! I’m actually crying over this. Doctors and nurses are so needed and appreciated!

  25. Ironjawswife says:

    He should go back to emergency waving it around ranting. Totally justified.

  26. Thea DesertMinx Read says:

    Dang! "Throw another shrimp on the barbie!"

  27. Sherry Mercado says:

    Your a lifesaver you should be proud of your self. Look what you and Dr, pimple popper are doing saving lives #miricleworkers. Better then going to your primary are doctors, Emergency Rooms.

  28. EVlog Hough says:

    That is crazzzy

  29. Smiley Face! says:

    My heart just came out after seeing when the docter makes a cut with the needle and the man was like,“ I don't feel any type pain,I'm okay” and still smiling…..wow man respect,such a strong heart he has!!!!

  30. Julichska says:

    Omg 😧

  31. `MaLiBu` says:

    Wow… Good Job doc… We need more patient, thorough and caring docs like this man. Too bad that medical doctors have became businessman rather then healers. I have a catheter stuck in my back that no neurosurgeon is willing to remove instead they try to sell me on other shit like disk replacement and fusions what the fuck? Just remove the foreign object from my spine and the pain should go away… But they rather leave me in pain then fix me.. if I'm fixed they can't make money off me… The US is the worst when it comes to this problem and no liberals …. Govt insurance isn't the frickin answer… Keep the corrupt govt away from healthcare just make a bad problem worse. #stopindustrializinghealthcare
    Fyi… Stop blaming insurance companies for raising rates, if you saw the amount of money hospitals charge our insurance companies i.e 600$ for a band-aid you would think twice before calling insurance companies the crooks… Did you know hospitals charge up to 4 times more the amount when they're billing an insurance versus cash pay patient? You probably thought insurance companies got a break but actually it's the exact opposite
    Ever noticed hospitals get excited to hear your injury is workers comp? Because they get to charge up to 4 times more to your employer
    It's sick…. They don't want to heal us either, keep us "band-aid" healed so we keep coming back for treatment
    My pain management doctor told me all this one week prior to his retirement
    Pretty sad.

  32. jcondo08 says:

    Did the same to my hand when I was a kid cooking a barbie. Got so infected but they wouldnt believe me there was something in there and said the infection was getting so badthat it might mean surgery. I got sick of it and decided to look in side (was told not to do this but my home town has notoriously bad doctors, eg saying i faked strokes and diagnosing my cancer as faking to get out of work) and outcomes a huge chunk of split skewer. Instant relief but honestly my mind thought it was a bone lol.

  33. NoFap 365 says:

    He should expose the names of the first two asshole who treated him

  34. Can Can says:

    Wow. You are amazing.

  35. Kimber Bogema says:

    He kicked a garbage bag and then had a bbq skewer in the foot. This is NOT a toothpick!

  36. Jeandre Doran says:

    im scared i have metal in my feet too but i dont want to remove it

  37. Devil's Offspring says:

  42. Magus Senpai says:

    Hoooly… Appointment in 1 year to remove that? That's some bullshit.

  43. Joyce Holmes says:

    Oh go…. 🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮 keep the good video…🤮🤮🤮🤮 up man 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

    Edit: ☠

  44. Juane Mari Stadler says:

    Holy Mother he had an entire tree inside his foot 🎄😱!

  45. Brandy Pinkerton says:

    This guy is my hero!! Dang!!

  46. Constance krischan says:

    Jonathan is awesome! Great bedside manner and very thorough!

  47. Melody Angayon says:

    geez…my toes turned to jelly when he pulled that out…

  48. Daniel Reyes says:

    how does a toothpick got inside his foot? WOW!

  49. Denise Hill says:

    On 2.17 it looks like there was a terd was smothered on his blackhead😱

  50. Lorraine Steeves-Zellmann says:

    Omg!!!! I felt it too when you hit it with scalpel!! Jackpot!!
    What a relief for that poor man!! Bravo!

  51. Don Pedro says:

    Dammit Doc Great job

  52. London Sage says:

    Now that's a doctor who cares. Patient had a great attitude and the doctor was AWESOME!!

  53. 1018070 104170269 says:

    This dude had a hidden toothpick!

  54. Greg Smith says:

    Hospitals don't care about people anymore! He could have lost his foot! 😎💨

  55. James Dolan says:

    Was that a bone or a cactus spine, or something else?

  56. Therese Mosler says:

    Fantastic bravo

  57. Mary MCB says:

    Nicely done, Dr.

  58. Keshia Fowler says:

    No way

  59. TexasGirl 1 says:

    Who hates feet?

  60. Pamela Bhendwal says:

    I had a patient sit on a toothpick . It lodged in his scrotum . He died from infection

  61. john m says:

    What would’ve happened to this guy if we lived in a time before we had the technology to pull it out?? Would he have just had to deal with the pain for the rest of his life, or maybe get an infection and have to have his foot amputated?

  62. Itzel Elguera says:

    Holy shit!!!!!!!!!!!!🥺😬😮😮🤯🤯🤯🤯

  63. PCPhil007 says:

    Let's see the follow up appointment. Did the wound close without any problems?

  64. Jennell Kelly says:

    This same thing happened to me with a toothpick. It took a month for doctors to find it, even though my foot was 3x it’s normal size.

  65. Amie Carrere says:

    see that is what drives me nuts about the E.r. You go there bc you truly need help and are in pain or discomfort that is taking you away from your everyday life and feeling normal… and they always just want to throw pills in your face and tell you "they can't find anything" or "Nothing is wrong." Then they tell you surgery in a year tho, even tho they can't see anything is wrong.. But HERE TAKE THESE PILLS AND DON'T MIND THE FRIGGIN INCH LONG PIECE OF WOOD STABBED AND NOW CAUGHT UNDER YOUR SKIN INTO YOUR TOE!!!

    Thank God there are very few doctors like this guy who will actually listen and do what is necessary to actually help a person.

    If the E.r. would have done the job they're supposed too from the beginning, this man would have saved all those extra trips to other doctors, and would've been healed and the issue wouldn't even be a thought now…


  66. Cliffton Tucker says:

    It’s well last 1am and we are all on the dark side of YouTube rn what’s up all

  67. Debra Witte says:

    thank goodness there are some caring and competent doctors ! thank you !

  68. evilkelly says:

    How you helped this patient when others couldn’t or wouldn’t is fantastic… but you need to take that bracelet off and pocket it until you’re done treating patients for the day. That bead bracelet is a guaranteed catch all for bacteria unless you happen to be washing it with antibacterial soap every time you wash your hands, and I can’t believe that’s likely. Ditch the bracelet before you pass staph from one patient to another.

  69. 닉네임 says:


  70. pioco56 says:

    Bruh I have to visit this guy, maybe he can help my toe.

  71. Jackie Blu says:

    OMG I can just faint… 😣

  72. Jan Tune says:

    Wow! The relief this poor man must have felt. What a lovely, caring man you are Jonathan to persevere until you got him sorted out. 😊 x

  73. chigal09 says:

    1 year to wait to remove that?? I’m guessing this is Canada?

  74. Christine Wolanin says:

    I can’t believe they could not see this on X-ray. That tech needs fired

  75. Nerdiers says:

    I will be VERY self conscious every time I step on a pine needle. Or…..anything for that matter.

  76. Kenneth Lamb says:

    It's great that he got it removed, but how the heck did he not feel the pain of like half a toothpick being shoved in his foot

  77. Daniel Pippenger says:

    That is one big splinter!

  78. Gameoa says:

    And im back to this part of youtube

  79. Nancy B says:

    Everytime I watch this one, I'm still in awe when he pulls out that splinter!!!

  80. MaryAnn Williams says:

    In July I picked up an infection in my left big toe while in rehab after surgery. The in-house doctor Lanced and drained the infection. By the next day the infection had increased and was sending red streaks up my foot and into my ankle. Once on antibiotics, 2 days later they drained it, again. Thank God I was a trained nurse and knew wound care and debridement. I was able to take care of it myself and had it healed in 5 weeks. If I had to go to a doctor and wait for anyone to take care of it I would have lost my toe. This man was blessed to find this wonderful doctor who actually took the time to simply look!!!

  81. Missy Marie says:

    Dr: Any pain?
    Man: No.

    Dr: OMG!!! I can’t believe this. Make sure the camera gets this?!
    Do you want to see it?!!

    Man: NO!

  82. Daniel Timbs says:

    Why dont u use a syringe with antiseptic like others do to flush wounds? They look like they work a lot better than just using a spray bottle

  83. Avery Belle says:

    Oh my god.

  84. Minty says:

    I stopped breathing…. and blinking

  85. Timothy DeMarco says:

    Very good Doctor !! 👍

  88. BIG AL ONE says:

    When the doc puts on tree spikes to yank what the hospital can't find…..

  89. Micah Field says:

    You foot doctors are all alike, doing good work by using a scalpel as a spoon.

  90. Elizabeth Calloway says:

    Something you never want to hear a dr say, especially when he's digging around in you: "oh my god!". Lol.

  91. bkd. potato says:

    Don't you realise when shit like that goes into your foot?!😰

  92. Jerome Brown says:

    In my dream me and someone else had a long stick pushed through our shoulders and for some reason it didnt hurt it just felt really really weird!!

  93. Tamara Thomas says:

    How in the holy hell did that huge thing get stuck in his foot?!

  94. Rebeccca Westerman says:


  95. Joseph Fuller says:

    They used to do this without antiseptic

  96. Crash's Pad Washington says:

    😱😱😱 sweet baby Jesus that had to be torture! 32 days!!!

  97. Chrysta De La Cruz says:

    Omg! That poor man!

  98. Selly Bebe says:

    A toothpick 😳

  99. Ken Wilson says:

    Wow. Saga of how incompetent the Canadian medical system is. (With the exception of Dr. toe bro) One year to pull out a huge splinter? – no way! The idiots in America pushing for a medical system like Canada need to take note.

  100. Angelina Vaca says:

    Great job doctor
