Now, now, this is going to be clean.
A week or two back there was a thread about a guy who performed dentistry on himself. Then there’s an old joke about the hardest questions on the medical exam, one of which supposedly is “Under your seat you’ll find a bottle of bourbon and a razor blade. Remove your appendix.”
All this got me to wonderin’. Does the law prohibit me practicing medicine on myself?
I’m not talking about stuff that would require me to violate the law outright, like administering illegal/controlled drugs. Nor am I talking about “extreme” or “emergency” situations, like, say, lifeboat or battlefield surgery.
But I am talking about, say, kitchen table surgery. Or more likely, Lazy-Boy surgery.
