the one with the OT..

well oh well..i should've been updating yesterday, but the connection sucks i tell u!! i wasn't able to connect to the internet only until now..

yesterday, i had my clinical posting and it was interesting!! as i said in my earlier posts, i'm now doing my ENT posting... and yesterday, i was given a chance to go into the operation theatre and watched 2 surgeries..how cool was that???...i think it is my third time being in the OT since i started my clinical...no wonder la i was so excited kan!!..the first and second ones were when i was in surgery posting, and they were on orchidectomy, lymph node biopsy and the other one was for a cancer patient, tak ingat dah...

and yesterday, the first surgery done was endoscopic dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR)... basically, it is done on a patient with chronic dacrocystitis...senang citer it's like ur lacrimal sac (kelenjar air mata) has been infected for quite long enough, and u've started to have symptoms like watering of the eyes etc...the patient was referred from the ophthalmology dept actually....ok back to the story, so when the sac is inflammed, u have to drain the pus inside it..it can be done by small incision directly on the lacrimal sac, but since it's situated just below ur lower eyelids, beside to the nose, there'll be scarring...so to avoid that, they did the DCR... what they did was...erm if i'm not mistaken la..this is what i understood..correct me if i'm wrong.. the surgeon has to drain the pus through the nose, where they insert an endoscope into ur nose, and along with it, they insert whatever instrument they need to, and they remove a small part of lacrimal bone in the nose, so that u can expose the sac through the nose, and the incision is made, so that the pus is drained through the nose...

and the second surgery done was tympanomastoidectomy on patient with chronic suppurative otitis media (it is the inflammation of the middle ear)...yang ni i managed to watch only half way through it, since it was almost 12, and my surgery class is at 12... best ok masuk OT...i don't know why... but it just feels good being there... tapi penat nak mati la kan...i was standing on my feet for 3 hours...mcm nak patah je kaki...

and sempat jgk amik gamba...tapi cepat2 takot kena mrh ngn surgeons..tau takut....teeheeee....and owh...they've provided us with separate OT dress..last time i just wore the staff's dress...baru lagi i tell u haa!!


hehehe....after 3 hours! cap pun dah terkebelakang dah...



am i still recognizable?? gedik2...hehehe...

later in the surgery class, we've started our class on surgical skills...and yesterday, we learnt the basic surgical knots...ni lagik best...tetibe rase smangat jer nak jadi surgeon kan...though we're only doing the knots using our tali kasut, and i was using my ipod earphone...still..cam gempak ok!! hehehe..

that's it about yesterday...

and today..as usual, i had my community medicine class...tak sokaa laaa..tak tau la nak ckp ape..we had problem solving today..and the problems given were about the prevalence la, disease rate la bla bla bla...so once again we had to do the calculations thingy..and dr gopinath was treating us like bdk skolah rendah yg tak ingat sifir 12.. i think his maths is soooo teruk... die yang tak fhm, pastu mrh2 orang...ntahpape..

why i seemed to dislike this dr gopinath so much?? let me tell u here... ok la i know dr gopinath is a well-experienced in teaching comm-med, and i know i should pay him some respect...but sometimes i think he just doesn't have the common sense...the class is supposed to start at 9, and today, and days before pun, dr fawad or the new lecturer pompuan tu took the class...and when we're half way through the class, say around 940, dr gopinath will just come in, and he'll repeat everything all over again...and i think the way he did it was so not right..dah la he was interrupting the flow of the class...pastu kalau die masuk lambat bersebab takpe jgk..like we didn't know yang die tu lambat sbb duk smoking upstairs kan...and if he feels that he knows the right way to teach, why asked dr fawad or the other lecturer to begin the class in the first place???dah la the subject itself is not interesting, and he successfully made it worse!!

but still...kena la blajar jgk kan...sighh..

on the other hand...the stress is on!! today, the pharmacology dept has put up the portions of the subject which will be covered in the coming internal assessment...banyak nak matiiiiii...and there's like 1 month to go before the exam...pengsannnn...

and owh...today's 08.08.08....best2...musti ramai org kawen ari ni kan...gagagaga...me nanti nak kawen 20.12.2012 lah...hahahaha...pastu hantaran pun rm20122012..cun cun..ok arif, boleh pengsan skarang!!

ok peeps...schleep time....clinical's tomorrow...and owh...azam weekend ini adalah to finish 2 chapters of microbiology, chapter on inflammation of pathology and for pharmacology, tgk lah chapter mane paling sikit..boleh ke??insya Allah..hehe..

till then, mwax!
