(P.S. Surgery one coming tomorrow)
So in this shadowing surgeon thing, I also get to see residents, and follow them around to see what their lives are like. They have 80 hour work weeks, they’re under constant stress from the attendings, and they still have so much more to learn. But one thing I learned, is that they have fun nonetheless, in their own sort of geeky resident way.. and I’m jealous. here are some stuff that went on during a lunch.
Resident 1: ask him about his finger (points to resident 2)
Resident 2: so, I had my trauma rotation at county… and I had to give this guy a rectal exam. While my finger was up his butt, he decided to turn around and sit on my finger. So I had a HUGE sprained finger, all black and blue for a couple weeks, and couldn’t even move it.
few moments later..
Resident 3: Do you guys notice the bump on your middle finger?
Resident 4: I think everyone has it, it’s from writing…
Resident 3: Well I think mine’s ugly, and I don’t really write anymore, we type everything. I wanna get rid of it, do you think we can just surgically remove it?
All 10~Residents: (talking in unison about what their thoughts about removing it, whether it can be done, or what procedures should be taken, ‘it’s just a callous’, ‘who cares’, ‘it should be easy because its just on the surface’)
Surgeons seem to just wanna cut… and yeah they’re dorks.
Was this not as funny as I thought it was? Maybe I’m just a big dork too..
