Just a quick lame update as i'd already left this blog unattended for a few weeks.

Interesting experience so far while doing the ObsGyn rotation.

1. Met a lady today who is already 5 months into her pregnancy unaware of the baby and had a PV bleeding a few times before which she put down to her irregular cycle. 
Everyone was laughing like hell while she had her abdominal U/S following her reaction. Surprisingly her abdomen was not as distended as you would expect it to be. Another example of how everything was not like a textbook. 


2. Attending clinic has been good experience so far for me but not to others. I'm very sorry for you guys except to those who keep complaining and exert a negative effect to others by discourage them to go to clinic just because you have a bad experience. Not everyone will get the same treatment for sure but you don't discourage others. yes you may tell them whom and whom not to go with during the clinic but as usual, there are other good doctors who is caring enough to teach you one or two things.
Keep complaining would not make the situation any better unless you really go and see prof!

3. Newborn baby is actually almost light blue in colour. I only saw one delivery so far and it was by caesarean section. Hoping to see more in the next 2 weeks and possibly do one or two or maybe more delivery. At least when I'm ready to have my own child, I won't be fainting next to my wife (insyaAllah) who is in a great pain waiting for the baby to come out. ^__^


4. Today i took a history from a nurse and a doctor. Both are inpatient because of their blood sugar level was elevated. One is a type 1 DM patient while another is being investigated for a possibility of gestational induce diabetes. "Being a patient was absolutely a different experience from treating one. you will only know if you have gone through it on your own" more or less what they said to me.


5. Everyone who is doing ObyGyn rotation in Rotunda got an email yesterday saying that starting today, the attendance will be taken for every tutorial because the attendance has been very poor for some. If you fail to get 100% attendance, there will be no exam for you this coming May. Finished reading it the only thing i can say is "Alhamdulillah....". Part of the lesson that we have in Rotunda Hospital is about its old heritage and the legacy of this hospital and its founder. Bartholomew Mosse. I never thought that we would be spent about 3 hours just to listen to the historical lecture. Anyhow, it was much more interesting that i thought. Didn't even took my usual lecture nap. ^___^


6. Birds of the same feather would always try to flock together but sometimes even the similar species would eat on their own if food supply is scarce. (does this make sense?LOL). In shorts, respect your teacher or your name would be known to others as someone who do not know how to respect them. Yes we could be friend with our teacher but respect their position is a must. lesson learned! ^___^
