In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever. Rogozov examined himself and discovered that his appendix was inflamed and could burst at any time. With a local anesthesia, he operated himself to remove the appendix. An engineer and a meteorologist assisted surgery.
this man was born with the most manliest of ballsacks
I always reblog this cause honestly you just don’t get more badass.
MANLIEST MAN EVER
Mother. Of. Fuckers.
This man I have all of the respect for.
Some people might not consider this that badass, but guys, think about it.
Even with the anaesthetic, since he’s the surgeon and the patient, he’d have to watch every second that he cut himself open and peer inside his own body while he was conscious.
Fuck, dude, I don’t know if I could have gone through with that. Guy had balls of god damn titanium.
This dude is amazing… @___@
