It's already been a week i've started O&G and i've already miss surgery.However, my journey has to go on.
O&G is much more strict and sturctured compare to surgery. If the lecturer promise something they will do it. If they said the lecture is at 8am u have to be there at least 5 minutes before.To be safe at least 10minutes because i've been to a lecture where the lecturer close and lock the door 5 minutes before the lecture.
If they ask you to read on certain topic you better do if not you will 'kena' when you cannot answer your question. When you taking history(clerking) patient you have to know all about them. Make sure you find out terms that you are not sure inside the ticket(patient's record).By the way, you have to cover the beds in the ward(team leader have to divide the beds). Labour room gave me intesting experience.We can only be there during on calls.wE get 1O on calls per posting to satisfied the need of 5 conduct of normal deliveries per student.My first on call was on wednesday 7pm till 7am.We have to observe at least 3 deliveries before we can conduct with the help of the midwive and doctors
Alhamdullillah i manage to observed 1 normal delivery and 1 abnormal delivery(cesearian section).The story of my experience can be quite long...to cut it short: for the abnormal delivery..i& my partner(Mas) hav to wait for 6hours befor we go to Operation theatera(OT) Got back home at 5.30am and manage to get 1 hour sleep before Grand ward round(where we have to present case at 8am. The funny thing is..i only feel sleepy& tired on the next day..hehe
What i like about O&G is there are a lot of things that students are allowed to do or directed to do(log book).The feeling of involvement is there which surgery posting lack of. Next is the CUTE BABIES of course!!..really release ur tension when you see them.
LOVE to see couples who get their first born baby. I can feel their 'aura' of excitement and joy. SO...SWEET.It touch my heart till it tears(in joy) me a bit(nasib baik org tak perasan).hehe(",)
SO...far, adala a few unpleasent moments..however i have to take it positively because mostly it comes from my own mistake. Time management is very important. Managing stress also become a crucial factor of survival in medicine world. Recently, i heard 3 of my coursemate decided to change their coure. However, better back off if you feel medicine doesn/t suits you. Because medicine is about a lot SACRIFICE!!
