* In ''Film/TheMartian'', Mark gets a piece of steel antenna guyline lodged in his abdomen during the windstorm that caused the mission to abort. The rest of the crew was headed back to Earth, believing him to have been lost and killed in the storm. He removes the shrapnel himself and then staples the wound closed.

This is possibly the only way a lenghty scene involving Creator/MattDamon [[ShirtlessScene with his shirt off]] could ever be 100% free of {{fanservice}}.

* The scene from ''Literature/TheMartian'' mentioned in Film above plays out basically the same, except Mark had to suture himself rather than use medical staples.

* Heero Yuy fixes his own broken leg in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing''. This is because said leg was dislocated after a big fall, and he relocated it by himself. This is technically possible but extremely painful, but because Heero's TheStoic at that point of the story, he didn't bat an eye and, rather unrealistically, was able to walk fine afterwards and never suffered problems with that leg later on.

He also reset it right in front of Duo Maxwell, who was promptly grossed out.

** Actually, you're body can metabolize itself more efficiently than it can digest food. In a starvation situation, you're better off letting yourself waste away than to try to eat yourself, even assuming you have no issues with blood loss or infection.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': Adelle's brother Grigorii tried to give himself godeyes, the most advanced form of BioAugmentation in the city. It requires physically removing the eyes from the skull and doing precision surgery on them while they are carefully mutated. He tried to do this by himself, ''to'' himself. Even in the best of circumstances, people who try to get godeyes are usually blinded; Grigorii lost his eyes entirely. [[AngerBornOfWorry And then his sister almost killed him when she found out what he did]].
