so i had the opportunity to join surgery in the operating theatre. so far i only joined surgery on cholesteatoma (google it if you want to find out what is it... im too lazy to explain bout it) and thyroidectomy due to medullary cell cancer. yes since i've never been in the theatre before i was quite interested like a small child trying to know stuffs in the kitchen.... looking at everything with curiosity. too bad no touchy touchy is allowed. nevertheless my legs become stiff because i have to stand for couple of hours watching the surgery without doing anything. oh yeah, im not used to stand still for too long. i have to move around if i dont sit. so there's one time i was sleeping while standing right in the middle of watching the procedure. not knowing whta to do lead me to slumberland..... anyway thats not the point.
so what have i learnt from these 2 sessions? of course medical stuffs related to the patients... type of thyroid cancer, symptoms, etc etc not gonnasay it now.. too tired. and then jokes since we dont know what else to say everyone was asked to tell a joke. of course the medical students cant tell anything. me and my friends feel too awkward.
then finally we play numbers in the theatre. dafuq!!! i was like "dude i come here to watch the procedure not to play with numbers" but then i was like "screw this! i cant see anything what the surgeon is doing so lets play this number riddles" that can kill some time and boredom
besides playing numbers, we sing along to the songs played from the radio.
so here's one of the riddles
1 2 1 1
1 1 1 2 2 1
3 1 2 2 1 1
1 3 1 1 2 2 2 1
....................... (fill the next number line)
ill give the answer later
