Worst smell ever? - Page 7

post #91 of 102

Personal experience with an infected open wound crushed tibula (shin) bone , in hospital for I.V therapy(s) .

 

I remember well, naively actually asking a nurse about that god awful smell, even where ever I went

(in wheelchair) during one of many long hospital admissions in the effort to save the leg - Being told, "That smell, is your leg"  redface.gif frown.gif

I once tripped on sharp rocks (with moss and possibly fungi on them) and by the time I got to a hospital hours later and they removed the bandages, I smelled the ooze and I had to ask, "can you save it?! it's just a few scratches with blood an pus! is it necrosis?! do I have sepsis?! the stream water looked clean, I drank from there!" Nurses laughed at how hysterical I was over it.

That is indeed a smell far, far worse than it deserves to be.

Fluid drained from an empyema while inserting a chest tube...

 

 

 

The smell would gag a maggot...

I've got a unique one. It will take a bit of setting up. As part of our business breeding tropical fish, lots of water and gook from the tanks gets on the floor and is channeled toward grates. A series of PVC pipes embedded in the floor carry the water, dirt, fish waste, dead snails, uneaten food, etc. from the grates all over the building into one central spot, which is a pit cut into the concrete and lined with a plastic drum. There's a pump in here to drain out excess water. However, this particulate forms a silt that collects in this pit until it reaches the level of the pump and starts clogging it up. At this point the pit needs to be scooped out.

 

It's difficult to describe the odor. It's not a sewage smell, nor a dead fish smell. There's a component of ammonia to it, but it's a far more complex aroma than that. The uninitiated often have difficulty holding in their lunch the first time they're exposed to it. And of course you have to put your nose right up to it while you're bending down to scoop it out. And guess whose job that is. :smile:

lol. The actual smell of amonia itself isn't too bad but it gives you that gagging reaction, so it's right up there.
