DO NOT USE A WIRE BRUSH!!!

Postby Winfrey » Sun Feb 07, 2016 8:49 am

I am posting this so as many people can become aware of the dangers of using a wire brush. I grilled Thursday... after one bite I felt something in my throat. We went to the ER ... they took CT Scan saw a wire but did not have the tools required so transferred me to Maury.... Maury looked at the CT and took me to surgery.... came back to Carol and said they could not see it.. to go home... come back to see him in 2 weeks or if I had more issues to go to Vanderbilt... Went home only to go to Vanderbilt the next morning as I could feel it with my finger.... got to Vanderbilt 10am.... they were furious that Maury did not transfer me there saying they could not see it.. the CT showed it and I felt it... what was wrong with them!! 10am admitted... around 2pm they tried to go thru my nose with a camera and try to reach it bu pulling out and twisting my tongue... gave up after about an hour!!!!! Went to surgery 6pm.. they went in and were able to pull out the wire... it was at least a half inch long. Not all hospitals have the tools and ability to go after this kind of issue.
Please don't take a chance of this happening... if you use a wire brush please wipe it down first with a wet paper towel before cooking!!! I will never use a wire brush again!!!!!
:evil: :sad:

Oh my goodness - I have been following this unfortunate accident on Facebook - what a very traumatic time you have been through, Winfrey. Had it gone down into your system, it could have had even more drastic repercussions. I am just glad you are back home safe and well after your ordeal.

I too have been following this horrible thing on Facebook. So glad you are home safe and sound - what an ordeal.

To add to this, Winfrey said the doctors told her they see this WAY more than you think.

That is very bizzare occurence, Winfrey, and not something I'd ever imagine happening. I'm so glad you finally got the wire removed and are okay.

That is just awful! And to think stores actually sell wire brushes for the purpose of cleaning grills!

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Hoping you feel better soon, Winfrey...
