This is a question Body Horror

Mictoboy writes, "I once picked a spot on my cheek only for a half-inch long ingrown hair to coil out covered in pus."

How has your own body made you recoil in disgust?

having someone insert their fingers into your chest cavity
is not surgery?

they do by the way, to ensure the hole is big enough, and to ensure the tube rests correctly into one of the lobes. and whilst they say your lung has no nerves - somehow you can feel everything. all the tugging etc. I expect its close i would get to the feeling of having a Caesarean.

It's as much a surgical procedure as having an IV cannula, nasogastric tube or catheter inserted is. IE not really.
It's a procedure that, whilst performed under aseptic conditions can be carried out by any individual adequately trained to do so and does not require an operating theatre to do so. Most A&E doctors aren't recognised surgeons. Neither are chest physicians. Or anaesthetists.
