today woke at 0645hrs, to go to Sandringham hospital for General Surgery. Went there with Yeo early to do injections, got to each do 1 =). And the surgery list seemed less packed today, and Yeo and i decided to go see surgeries.
In between we had Radiology tute by the private contracted radiologist. IT was great. he basicallly taught us all the Radiology that was happening as he works. so he dictates and then teaches us at the same time. got to see an U/S guided cyst aspiration of a thyroid.
so here are all the 6 surgeries i watched today.
- hemithyroidectomy: removing 1 side of the 2 sides of a thyroid
- direct inguinal hernia repair: scrubed in for this one
- Lap Choly: laproscopic cholecystectomy: key hole surgery removal of the gall bladder
- pilonidal sinus removal: Yeo scrubbed in for this
- Haemorroidectomy: removal of a haemorrhoid: I scrubbed in for this
- Lap appendicectomy: laproscopic removal of a inflammed appendix
time to study. i am getting a bit freaked out that exams are close by =) about time i freaked out.

A consultant mentor of mine mentioned an interesting statement: "In life there are 3 things/people which/whom are most important
- Your life partner
- Your Job
I believe that you need a supportive partner to succeed in work, for we only have to hands and 24 hours. The time and place we need our hands are more than 24 hours and more than 2 places at once. And another pair of hands help to save the day. Another pair of hands shares the load, another pair of hands can give u a hug. But well if you choose a wrong partner (was lazy to think of a more politically correct term), you end up ruining each other's life. Life gets miserable as you require more time and effort to appease the other half, to live with your other half and just to live life. It gets tough, and you end up not being able to channel the energy needed to succeed in life.
Success in life has many measures, but well happiness is a good measure. And it's contentment at arriving at your goal (that is set realistically) that brings themost happiness. Another mentor said that a lot of guys in our society have depression because they work for $ and it is never enough.
back to the main point. So i believe we must trust and believe and select carefully to succeed.
and my view point of the 3 points is that Family is the aspect that should replace your life partner. At the end of the day, Mum and Dad are the only pair in the world. you can choose anyother wife, but well family is family. And then comes the family u create with your other half. They are hopefully your support, your cheerleading squad, and the reason you live and work for.
i sure hope we all succeed in life.
