The Chronicles of Hernia, Week 1


After a lengthy examination during which the medical student sees mostly the backs of the necks of the doctors in front of him --
Pond-Scum-Level Medical Student (PMS): Uhm, doctor? What's the diagnosis?
Consultant Dr Bigshot: (paying more attention to the germs in the air in front of him than to PMS) Uh, she's dying.

The crowd of doctors and nurses moves along and PMS finally gets to see the patient. In fact said patient is staring straight at him.
PMS: Ohmigod she's HUGE!
PMS freezes and realises what he's done.
Consultant Dr Bigshot: (paying more attention to the doorknob he's currently turning than to PMS) Well done.

(No, before you ask, the above medical student is not me. No, really. Honest. Whaddya mean, "yeah right"? I-- ah screw it.)

Obviously it wasn't you. I'm sure you would have used more pleasant words like,"Is her BMI astronomical?"

That BMI thing is medical and good, and it is nit value laden and definitely not patient disparaging. Next time around, you could simply say that your BMI is way too high, and you are at risk of developing Metabolic syndrome. And they will actually like you, maybe even be impressed.

ditzydoctor: Yeah, OMG. I had no idea clinical school was gonna be like that either :P

Eugene: "Habitus" is SUCH a useful term, isn't it?

Ms Ellisa: Aww thanks. Don't hold your breath though. I did tell you how Stockholm contacted me about the Nobel Prize for Laziness, right? Apparently I've turned it into an art :)

Zewt: Bring a map ;)

Shrinked: I'm actually going to take your advice. And if a consultant gets pissed off with me and asks me where I got that idea, I'm gonna point to your blog. (After whimpering and wetting my pants, of course.) ;)

Tracy: Aww I love you too Tracy!

Argus Lou: I'm starting to miss that series. Eerie how true to life it was, no? :P

YS: LOL I hope so, man. I hope so.

Dragonfly: But I DIDN'T say this! No honest Doc, you gotta believe me! :)

Dan: No it is NOT. My hit counter has gone up by 3 since then. HAH.

Erectile dysfunction and depression are highly prevalent among men and the conditions coexist and interact in several ways. Some experts feel that the onset of erectile dysfunction causes some men to become depressed while others seem to think that the depression is the primary cause of erectile dysfunction. http://www.viagrathunder.com
