The moment I opened my mouth, I knew it he was not gonna go easy on me
That was what I thought at the beginning of my case presentation and I thought right. He was not gonna go easy on me. The doctor I mean.
Since I haven’t been updating very frequently here (despite some emo post that probably no one ever understand about) to those who weren’t catching up I am currently doing my Internal Medicine rotation. This is already week 8 and week 9 that is next week is gonna be my end of posting exam.
Back to my case presentation; the thing about us medical student is we always wanted an overly impossible fantastic case to present. Pneumonia? Asthma? COPD? Diabetes Mellitus? Hypertension? Heart failure? Nah those are all too mainstream. We want poorly rehabilitated post-stroke patient with limb weakness complicated by hypoglycemia due to uncontrolled diabetes. We want recurrent angina in a patient of a known case of atrial fibrillation complicated by toxic goiter with an undiagnosed cardiac failure. We want a patient with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis whom a known case gross ascites secondary to cirrhotic liver disease with history of oesophageal varices banding done and currently developing hepatic encephalopathy apart from having uncontrolled diabetes and not compliance to medication.
Those fancy cases. I doubt I even know how to diagnose hypertension and cardiac failure yet. Let alone to assess the whole diabetes mellitus complication. Or the bronchial asthma control.
Exam in another few days.
It’s ironic how I’d always find my writing mood comes at an inappropriate time. In fact most of my mood came at the wrong time.
I opened a large bag of chips and chilling in front of my laptop not on Friday night, but Friday morning.
I was all pumped out to clean up my room and do laundry on Monday morning.
I feel like updating this blog just when exam is a few days away though most of other days I was pretty much not occupied.
To conclude my Internal Medicine posting so far
There. Good luck for exam guys.
Oh and girls.
