time-night[around 11pm]
people involved-ortho pgs,patients and ward boy

in ortho its a common thing to get fracture cases during night duties and in most of the cases to stabilize[and also to decrease pain] pops[plaster of paris] are put as a initial emergency medical aid and further managed depending on the patient[finance]/docs.

actual scenario-
a patient with obvious fracture comes to the emergency and one of my pg after initial routine[history,doing MLC and xrays] decides to put pop and tells[request-u cant order these self important jerks!] one of the ward boys to put the pop...after everything [putting cast] the ward order plainly demands money[pretty hefty] from the patient telling the dr himself has asked for it[pure exploitation].
After a few days some how this pg comes to know abt this[from the patient themselves] and so from then on in a heroic way[he was in 1st yr then] decides to put all the casts himself[in order to save their money]...satisfied/with pride[after putting some] at last walks into the duty room and narrates[to his senior pg] all this...senior pg then calmly replies "now tht u have personally gone to put pop ward boy would charge double the amount saying he has personally called u for the work"

that was the last time he put the cast himself in his life....
those who think all govn docs r corrupt r wrong....

this day that year...16th dec 2007 was when i started blogging and have been happily continuing doing so till part about this is that its a hobby which i like doing and coz of this have been able to connect with some really wonderful people[and writers] whom i didnt even know and cared to spend their time reading my blog and pen down their opinion.
A big thank u for all those who made me to continue this till today[with their feedbacks and comments] and also those who care to read it [and dont comment].

as they say "a writer is, after all, only half his book. The other half is the reader and from the reader the writer learns"-feedbacks/-ve and +ve suggestions are most welcome..and request each and every reader to do so:)

fish market...

have u ever been to a fish market?[non vegs]
i have never been to one[am a egg eating veggie] but guess it will be somewhat similar to the ops in our departments on mondays...lots of people[with all sorts of complaints] shouting and running here and there and we like vendors trying to convince[or somehow escape] them somehow.This is so coz all the weekend cases would have been accumulated[unless its an emergency] and they on monday would just drop in into opds[even more so in ophthal since emergency cases r too less] causing the mad rush.

Luckily for interns work is to just do LS and measure iop using tonometry

lady wolverine

just more days am out of this more casts,night duties,pulling etc.
Never enjoyed ortho and wont be taking it as my pg.

watched Boondock saints-very stylishly filmed movie with good watch it if u r a fan of such movies[like man on fire,usual suspects]

today had been my last OT[major postings] and was feeling all nostalgic...if i dont take a surgical field it will be last time ever i will wear a OT dress....

my personal[private] picture blog is now 165 posts old and it feels so good to see my yr old snaps....

She-wolverine-snap taken by my co-intern after a k-wire fixation to a lady...

"please sir just few prescriptions of these[/day]"...this is what i have been hearing from MRs[medical reps] in opds who visit regularly [whole week] and bombard the innocent docs[interns] sitting there with loads of new meds[trade names of same old drugs] and rarely sometimes with free samples...sometimes i find more MRs than the patients in the department wandering here and there with their bags and targeting/torturing every pg/intern they come across.More often it has so happened that its difficult to decide whether to talk to them or to the patients who keep pestering us with their year[like one patient who has a pain problem from 15 years but has never bothered to show it to any doc] old problems.
on the brighter side they r few advantages as well-free meds,pens[which i never use] and get to learn quite a few funky cool trade names[atleast it impresses the patient!] of the drugs.

1-those of u who think am a sadist and experiment on patients like guinea pigs r mistaken...we write[most of the times] only those drugs which r safe and dont have any untoward rxns.
2-ortho is such a dull field-just xrays/pulling,pushing/mending bones....
3-had been to my native yest-@ seaside[west coast]

Sunday, November 22, 2009

days ahead...

after 2 weeks of ortho i have-
put just 3 slabs[pops]
assisted in another 3-5
written about 50-80 painkillers[bread and butter of ortho]
in OTs have done practically nothing except for some pion and paper works...

in short-life in ortho sucks[compared to obg] with too many duties/ots....

1-finally had been to 2012..quite a nice movie though 1st half was little boring..
2-MRs[medical representatives] come to every opd and give us a list of latest drugs in the market[coax us!] which we experiment on the patients...write the same drug for few of the patients and in case u get bored[or until u memorize it properly] jump to another its quite fun!!;)
3-studies have gone gone for a toss...hardly i study these days...:(...may be coz of lack of motivation plus too many duties...

Monday, November 16, 2009

the game begins now...

no more free days[atleast for the next few weeks] where i can just ideally in opds and while away my precious time...its time for some broken bones,nut.bolt,pops and muscle flexion[to pull,push etc!]

from tomo actual ortho begins...had physiotherapy till now...
2 night duties in 4 days:( and moreover this rain has so much increased the incidence of rtas making our life miserable!![every 3rd accident case coming to casualty]
saw boondock saints cool action movie

in boys club

after ladies club its time to be in a boys club..i mean after obg its time for ortho postings...its been 2 days since it has started and till now[as expected] havent come across a single female[any age,height or weight!] in the department[not considering sisters and ayas]....

even the cases i come across are so monotonous...either fracture/rta[rd traffic accident] or some chronic pain case...and now itself i have realised this subj is not my cup of tea[as pg] and hoping to finish it as soon as possible and move on with my other postings.


1-a thief when caught red handed and tried to escape fell from a roof top and unfortunately landed up in our department[me on duty] yesterday with 3 broken bones.!!

2-i really miss those cute babies[and babes] in obg!!:(

3-thanks Saranya for the award!:))

medical joke of the day

medical joke of the day-

according to B &L surgery text "anterior hypospadias are surgically corrected only for cosmetic reasons"!!;)

Tuesday, November 3, 2009


just 5 more days to go in obg...already feeling nostalgic[and sad]...will miss those cute/tiny/innocent babies[thats the reason i wanna be a paediatrician]...moreover dont know whether i get to work here again in my life time[unless i take my pg here].

saw LONDON DREAMS movie...overall was a pretty good movie..but as some of them said think needs some reality check [do we need that?]...just learn to enjoy the movie as it is and leave behind the logic/reality check[which most of them dont]!!

doing surgery mcqs for entrance and am totally loving it...loving the logic behind  answering some of the qns and the way it improves ur overall clinical knowledge:) only regret is that i didnt do this during my surg postings[internship]:(

is anyone really interested in  wht u eat/see/drink??...frankly i dont enjoy twittering anymore....that way fb rocks...atleast can put some pics/chat/have fun;)

getting to see some pretty good nurses around wards these days....actually its fun talking to some them[;)] and appr the dedication they show unlike some stupid,overgrown useless senior sisters[totally hate them to core]


anyone seen the movie MOON?

butter fingers

flash back-

When i was in school and playing cricket i was a terrible fielder and known for throwing easy catches away..i still remember my bros[especially my twin] shouting their ass off @ me for leaving those silly catches...guess tht trait has continued till today....

curent situation-

on sat while on duty had to conduct one delivery[due to some peculiar reason] and when was all ready to catch it[baby] and  fraction of a sec after she delivered i find my hands totally had just slipped and fallen into the bucket...[umbilical cord had prevented it from falling off completely]


luckily baby was fine and nothing unexpected happened...:)

what people say

Patients to male interns-doctre

Same patients to female interns-sister,[which obviously pisses them off so badly]

i so pity my female

Thursday, October 22, 2009

my name is...

While working in wards[obg] i come across many people with so weird funny this one lady whose name was "Akkamahadevi"...looks like her parents were too impressed with the goddess and wants to  recite it their whole life.Likewise i have seen many couples where husb's and wife's names sound so similar like Gangappa/gangamma,manjunath/manjula,Mangappa/mangamma etc....dont know whether they married for their names or changed it after marriage....


my close friend has contracted swine flu while he was on duty...and luckily has managed to get 10 days leave with attn[that too in med]....everytime i mess him he tells me that he is fine and enjoying his life like never before...lucky dog!!

lateral thinking

uses of IV[intraveneous] fluids....

1-N.S-use it for face/hand washing in case ur duty room water supply is cut[like today]

2-D.N.S-cold it and use it as drinking water.

3-as iv fluids.....


1-my duty room water supply sucks....while brushing my teeth today had to run for water and fially used ns which my friend had kept in the room...

2-some quite pretty mallu sisters r there in my wards[ppc]......some soothers for my eye balls!!..:D.

House M.D s06

go to wards>write tons of discharge cards>then to duty room-gossip/eat/drink coffee>come back home by afternoon....

atleast its better than those stupid 12 hrs labour duty shifts...but i miss those cute babies:(!!


any one watching house s06?? totally rocks!!

Friday, October 9, 2009


after deliveries now its time to send them packing home...thats wht i did today and will be continue doing it for next ten days[rotation]...we have wards now for another one month and many cases which i saw[read delivered!] few days back seems like were getting discharged today and so had to write the discharge card summaries....overall i think[ward works] are far better than labour duties.Atleast no more frustrating 12hrs shift,cheap sleep and shouting till patients hear and come for daily rounds.


when told many among relatives were unable to digest the fact that i had conducted so many deliveries...they just think i have just assisted[which i  havent]/witnessed or may be bluffing abt the whole the other side there r quite few ones who get really surprised and keep asking me how i did/do that etc....[:D]....

short and sweet

at last labour duty was 58!!...wht a relief...[but i miss those babies:(]

leaving for shimoga today to attend my cousins marriage...guess i need a brk after a month of heavy work...


a patients attn who were happy with the baby[which i delivered] distributed us sweets in the ward...!!

Friday, October 2, 2009

still not out

tomo being my last day in clw[clean lab ward] makes me really happy,nostalgic and satisfied.....happy coz no more 12hrs/day duty[which i hate the most],nostalgic coz delivering and making babies cry[just love them to pinch!] will always be a sweet memory to me and satisfied coz i always wanted to learn this[conducting labour] and am content with my count[50 till now] and hope tht some day some parent rememberes me for wht i have done to them:)


when making a cpr to a baby with a paediatrician few days back i realized that 23 yrs ago i was in tht baby's position[me being prematurely born had to be in nicu for a month] and now tht same baby is in a position to do the same on others....indeed life is like a ....

a cylist

rode my new[actually my bro's] cycle trek3700 today....could covered just 14kms in 1hr 20mins....this is the first time am riding a geared mountain bike and think its pretty cool

moral of the story-

1-bang traffic sucks really

2-never ever listen to ur mom regarding directions

3-my stamina is too poor...


15 days of day duty[labour] coming up from already sweating!!:(

Wednesday, September 23, 2009


miracles in life-

1-a just born asphyxiated baby surviving after almost 10 minutes of nonstop cpr[by myself and a paediatrician]+adrenaline trail....we had almost decided to declare it dead to the party concerned...after successfull resuscitation it was shifted to nicu immediately.[but our concern was the amount of brain damage baby would have suffered due to the episode]

2-a lady delivering a "healthy" baby instead of urinating in bathroom...

3-an anaemic mother surviving the delivery and coming out of it as healthy as any mother....

4-me not delivering a single baby yestersay in 24 hours


god is indeed sending his much needed blessings upon the needy!;)

Monday, September 21, 2009

little moments of joy

i feel overwelmed and indeed very happy when i-

-see the baby's head suddenly popping out of the mothers womb[oops!] and rotates[called restitution]

-for the first time hold the baby in my hands and direct it towards the mother lying there exhausted[really appr them for this kind of hardship they undergo]....

-take the baby for suctioning and on putting the tube inside its tiny nose it Sneezes[atchoo!!]


just check this out...a womans quest for 100 kisses in paris....wth!

Delivery man

after 12 hours of labour duty-

i have delivered[independently] 3 babies[statistically quite less compared to my other cointerns]

assisted for about another 3!!...


still amazed[and surprised] with the way i conducted my first one...just some moves here and there and within a few secs i had a healthy female child crying in my gloved hands[for which the mother gratefully thanked me!!:)]

Mr Catcher

My first day in obg was as wierd as it can get....first of all its a subj which seems so greek and latin to me[learning theory and doing it practically r so diffn] and a 12 hour continous night shift in the first day itself was something hard to digest[though we had done many double duties in med]...Luckily now am in a ward[srlw] where cases r quite less and luckily i can sleep atleast for 4-6 hours during night shifts.


1-yesterday as soon i entered the room i saw many preg ladies lying on the bed ready to be was such a weird feeling...didnt know wht to say or do..i just had to like a zombie roam around a bit for some company[other cointerns:P]

2-from drugs to equipments used seemed new as if i had read this subj long back...guess i have to do my home work properly...!:(

3-2 days brk duty is on sunday!!...

4-the best part is that sisters do most of the work here[unlike in med,surgery] and we just have to sit back and order them/impress them[?]!!..;)

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

life goes on

new place,new people,new work!!...

atlast my surgery postings came to an end today with a pre-ot duty...didnt had much work[post duty] except for preparing 4 patients for ot tomo....finally had to say bye to our pgs and come home..Obg[from tomorrow] now will be in a diffn hosp with diffn setup,people and faculty!!...[wish me good look!!:)]

A day at the casualty

yesterdays night duty was one of the worst night shifts i had in surgery....

10-12 pain abdomen cases who come all the way from remote places and that too most of the times  @ around 12 in the midnight....

5-6 rta[road traffic accident] cases 

countless assault cases[bread and butter of surgery emergency!!] with bruises,cuts and broken bones.....[one old fellow had got punched directly on the face and one of his tooth had fallen how the hell am i supposed to find a dentist in the middle of the night!!]


bullet i got to see from the pistol of the DGP who had come for a shootout case[with the victim].

dumping ground

any 3rd rate private hosp[also corporates]/doctor thinks our hosp is a dumping place of patients and send any complicated case to us for the management inspite of knowing ours a govn setup and except for basic facilities[which itself is in acute shortage] have nothing else...truth is everyone just wants to wash their dirty butt and come clean...!!


a patient's attender comes at night to us[from emergency wards] at around 1am and tells us that some private doc had told him that as soon as he comes here the patient will  get operated and was questioning us why it hasnt been done if we r some vultures and as soon as the patient enters we pounce on him and take him to ot...wtF!!...

KannadigariGAY :)

Full vodhi.. Yenjoy madi.

The recent High Court ruling on Gays has created quite a stir in
Karnataka and has made the average kannadiga take a re-look at his
daily life.

The native Kannadiga family man wakes up in the morning (belaGAY) and
discovers that his whole family could be GAY.

His father is heard telling his mother : maganGAY, magalGAY, soseGAY.

His wife says appanGAY, ammanGAY, gandanGAY...... and she loves

He gets ready for breakfast........ thindyGAY. here the talk is about
nanGay, ninGay .

His favorite home-made sweet dish is holGay.

At work, they talk about : YaarGAY,AvaruGAY, IvaruGAY, hinGAY, hanGAY,
elliGAY, alliGAY, bossGAY, secretaryGAY.

At his children's school, it is TeachersGAY, StudentsGAY, puneGAY and so

For entertainment, he goes cinemaGAY

The Judiciary and Police are no different. It is JugdeGAY, PoliceGAY,
KalruGAY and so on.

Even the non-living things are GAY inclined. The Kannadiga says
busGAY, trainGAY, flightGAY.........

Finally, at the end of the day, he heads back home..........maneGAY.

And what does he find on the way.......... the road is lined with
sampiGAY trees.

And deep into the night, his wife tells him methGAY.

last one!

This year i finally made it to the flag hoisting ceremony at our college campus...this was my first time there[and the last] and after going there i realised that am doing it[singing my national anthem and witnessing a flag hoisiting] after 8 long years[last being when i was in 9th] which made me very nostalgic and in fact little patriotic!!...


1-have taken the snaps which am putting in my private picture blog.

2-everytime i come across our nat anthem i make it a point to standup[atleast try] many of u guys indeed do this??

Happy independence day

happy independence day-proud to be an Indian!!

swine[not flu]

after 2 back to back duties and no bath inbetween[with plenty of axe] am stinking like an wonder that the street dog near my house didnt even dare to come near me today.

p.s-1-this time i preferred sleeping during my break in the mornings instead of taking bath!....

2-these days every tom,dick and harry from abroad who gets a cold[or flu symptoms] demands a h1n1 testing to be done and as a result the swine flu ward[in our setup] has become a market like place with long Qs for throat swab cultures....[god i really curse these media people!!]

Saturday, August 8, 2009


a young guy in minor ot today comes straight to me and puts some thing small into my hand and says "its my birthday today"!Co-incidently i did his dressing quite early then and hope others[patients still waiting]out there dont think it just happened coz of the "chocolate" he gave to me.

Animal bite!

A 24 year old man comes to opd and says that he has an wound on his right index finger and needs our immediate attention....when i further enquired about it he said with some hesitation "i was bitten by my 23 yr old friend".Such cases[any bite] usually needs to be done MLC[medicolegal case]here and when i told him about his situation he just disappeared from there and never came back.

p.s-marathon duty coming up...from sunday morning till tuesday afternoon!:([2 back to back duties]

Melody personified

Last week accidently i came across some torrents of some old hindi songs and Jagjit singh's collection was one among them....after listening to some of his songs i have realised what a great voice he has[as many people say] and he has truely mastered the art of blending ones  voice exactly to the singing style which suites them..listening to them these days quite frequently and i really enjoy it.

p.s-once he had commented in an interview-"everyone can be a singer,they shd just know what to sing"

another sunday

here comes an another month with its first sunday and its time for another grand test.

It Pays to Remember Names and Faces

Two men approached each other on the street with a look of
recognition in their eyes. One said to the other, "Now wait a
minute, don't tell me, I know I know you, but I'm not sure of
where we met. Let me see if I can think of your name. I've got
it! We met in Miami Beach two years ago."
"No, I've never been to Miami Beach."
"Hold it, don't tell me—oh, yes, it was on the boardwalk
of Atlantic City that we met."
"Sorry, I've never visited Atlantic City."
"I've got it now! Chicago in 1953!"
"Nope, I was not in Chicago in 1953."
"Well, I know we've met, where do I know you from?"
"Idiot! I'm your brother!!"

BANGLE recipe

1-bangle mudde-bangle pieces with ragi mudde

various modes of suicidal methods u see among people here and get admitted in surgery.

During post duty rounds our prof asks an inpatient "how did u consume these bangle pieces?"...she answers calmly "with mudde saar",myself and a pg were literally rofl there.

back to surgery now after anaesthesia....this minor posting shd have been a good relaxing period for us after med but unluckily it turned out to be quite the opposite.Daily9am-2pm[!] OT work + night duties made it sickening.Now that the new pgs were there we even lost the chance to learn intubation[tracheal] which was the only productive thing[atleast we can do it in casualty] possible to learn in anaes.More over the profs inside OT every now and then used to monitor us asking some stupid unnecessary theory qns which made it even more depressing[really hate them!].We do got chances to give spinal anaesthesia but to be frank its of no use practically anywhere else[atleast in casualty].Only thing positive was that i could study for my entrance quite a bit.

out of 7 tries in giving spinal anaes i succeeded only in 3.way to emergency OT[hell to interns at night]

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


have been too lazy these days..not getting enough motivation or interest to do anything..all i do is sleep or waste time online.
Bunked anesthesia today...really hate it...may be that am[interns] are not getting to learn anything productive and all we do in that OT is monitor the patients[which any layman can do] or just stand there looking at paralyzed patients.Just 2 more days to go and then have surgery.
Watched King kong movie...really a jawbreaker movie with good story,terrific graphics.Best part was the last scene where Jack black just comments "Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast."!!

have been listening to this song recently and i just love of the few songs whose lyrics i really liked...laree choote from '140 ki last local" movie

Frost Nixon-4/5

Frost Nixon-A dramatic retelling of the post-Watergate television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former president Richard Nixon.
Simply loved it for its compelling storyline,great acting and for some fine direction[was selected as one of the best 10 movies of 2008 by AFI].....while watching it felt like am seeing an action movie.
I rated it 9/10 in imdb which it truly deserves.

my weekend

2 movies[frost nixon and race to witch mountain]+sleep[obvious]+good food and sms chatting with friends..tht sums up my weekend!

fresh intestine[ileum]...removed from a patient in emergency OT operated for perforation

Thursday, July 16, 2009

doc or mechanic?

this is my 4th day in anesthesia and am already bored of this short posting...whole day u just stand there in OT and look at the surgeons do their job.
We interns do get chances [for giving spinal etc] and exposure wise its really good but frankly i feel this field is not for me where the work is just mechanical[like monitoring patients,push iv inj] and is wholly dependent on the surgeons with whom u have to work with.Moreover i enjoy talking to people and want to get into a clinical side where the interaction with people is more personal and satisfactory[though radiology is still an option wide open;)].
So now i have atleast one option less for my pg!!...

thank u vyazz for the award..will be writing abt it in my next post:)

Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic
-Dale Carnegie

i absolutely agree with this quote and even follow it so some extent[not possible always]...when ever bored or down or uninterested this little thing really lifts me up and lets me enjoy wht i do...its just another way of seeing a glass half full instead of half empty.Some may think its just another quote by a philosopher but to really know it just try it out once and feel the difference...

p.s-down with ge[gastroenteritis-loose stools]..hope i may make it for night duty tonight

this is life

totally enjoying[read relaxing] anaes postings now..its for 15 days[part of surgery]...after med am finding this heaven and hope i utilize it as much as possible.
Postings are for just half a day and after that am planning to study little bit and watch some good movies!!After being in hell for 45 days its time to realize what heaven is[anesthesia] and totally enjoy and cherish it!!:)
