These are HILARIOUS!!!
Oh I forgot to mention in my last post that we also saw this show this past weekend and instantly fell in love with it. It’s a show where a group of doctors give their second opinion to a diagnosis and treatment which another doctor gave to a said patient. This week’s episode was of a 57 year old woman (a 30 year smoker until she quit 8 years ago) who was complaining about trouble breathing, bad coughs and blood in the mucus. It was first diagnosed as pneumonia and D was quick in stating that before the other docs did. However I also said there had to be cancer involved because of the amount she smoked and the blood in the cough which is never a good thing. It turns out it was a stage 1 lung cancer that was taken care of eventually.
The most interesting part of the show was hearing the doctors go through all of the steps involved with diagnosing and treating ailments, so you learn an immense amount of procedural information. It’s a great show and if you’re awake around 10:00am on Sundays, I highly recommend watching it. It’s pretty amazing what doctors have to know/do in diagnosing in some of the more common ailments that may have larger problems behind it.
