    What I am seeing here is erosive arthritis of the right hip likely secondary to avascular necrosis. That's my official reading as there is an ICD-9 code for that one and not an ICD-9 code for trumpet-up-your-butt and I want to get paid for my diagnoses for crapping out loud!

    There's usually a large tuba player involved somewhere! Great story. Made me chuckle :D

    Well spotted! Yes, poor fellow has quite a lot of discomfort going on, complicated by rectal trumpet bell impaction. He presented with a very peculiar gate!

    My first year in marching band we were at state competition and a fellow trumpeter miss counted and stopped two counts early and my horn mashed into my lips and busted top and bottom and chipped a tooth. Behind me an almost brand new Bach crushed it's bell via the back of my head. I guess the first trumpets solo was so nice that the judges missed that debacle and we still went home with a superior rating. I still have that chipped tooth

    I am guessing the hip problems resulted from the poor fellas kicking and thrashing around while said trumpet was inserted. Reminds me of a similar situation I saw when taking care of Vulgano Brother in my ER after he tried to duet with a viola player. Sad case, very sad case. Oh that reminds me I had to remove the case first.

    Vulgano Brother has a constant limp to this very day, and he hobbles when he walks too.

    The major injury common to most trumpet players with the n+1 syndrome is terminal poverty...........

    I guess the player wanted to do Scat as well as play
