Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

Resident: Mr. H complained that his “bag” hurt. After a lot of questioning, I figured out that he meant his testicles. 

Attending: Did you examine him?

Resident: Yeah, I couldn’t find anything wrong. Other than he had been sitting on his balls.

Attending: So what did you do about it? 

Resident: I thought about writing an order for nursing to remind him q2 hours to not sit on his balls.

    If I saw an order like like you could bet I’d be paging the Resident and asking them if they were serious.

    And I would have find that resident, no matter where they tried to hide, and kick them until they were dead.
