    I'm torn between making a snide comment about how having got used to Basingstoke it shouldn't be so bad..., and sympathy.

    Try me when I'm not horribly sleep deprived.

    Good luck.

    disgusting - assisted in a hip replacement, orthopaedics is so gross!

    amazing - doing the chest compressions in a ressus attempt in A&E with like 6 doctors watching on an MI patient. Adrenaline (mine) = skyhigh!

    opposite way around for me - orthopaedics is great (that acetabular cheese grater thingy is ace!)

    Breaking ribs while doing cpr - not so great.

    I only broke ribs once. Patient survived to tell the tale and was mocking me about it for months (so ungratefull :mad: ).

    The most amazing thing for me so far was getting a blue and floppy baby from the obstetrician and making it turn pink in front of my eyes. I had no idea that hearing baby cry can make you feel so incerdibly happy. :o:

    In terms of disgusting stuff what I do as a med students does not ever come close to what I have put up with as a HCA. My worst experience so far was helping the nurse with a maggot dressing. One of the little buggers found its way into my glove. :eek3:

    I think watching a radical vulvectomy has to rank pretty high on the list of all things disgusting.

    Amazing - lots of stuff, not sure I can pick one.

    Wasn't really an amazing thing I did, but met a very inspiring girl who'd survived cancer (surgery and chemo) and held her entire family together throughout it while being on an insulin pump for type 1 diabetes.

    Disgusting: can't say I was particularly thrilled watching a a rectal cancer resection :s:
