    Step 1) Suture a banana.

    Step 2) Then eat it.

    Step 3) Don't repeat step 2 in any other suturing situation.

    Step 4) Profit.

    It's looking like I'm going to find out whether I've qualified as a doctor from a hospital bed... very weird! Then don't actually graduate until ~4 days before starting work.

    We get the MB at a proper degree ceremony some time in July (or whenever we want) or can get it in absentia.

    I can remember that much :p:

    I could, but then I'd lose all my subscribed threads and I hate doing that. I've restricted how long I can have on here per day and will halve that length of time for this coming week to try and make sure I spend more time revising but I'm too attached to this place for an outright ban (and have too many dupes to get around it with :o:)

    I examined someone's knee the other day, and was all pleased with myself that I'd done it. Five minutes later I realised I had completely forgotten to do all the ligament tests :facepalm:

    I once did a cardiovascular exam and didn't realise the patient was missing a leg. I just checked one leg for oedema and left sheet on where the other leg would've been. Whoops. Thankfully this was more than a couple of years ago...

    I attempted to shake the patient's paralysed arm in my OSCE. Not my brightest moment :sigh:
