On the Wild Guess

I walked into the consultation room of this doctor in the otorhinolarygology clinic while I was doing my E.N.T. Posting and the last patient that came in was this 30 year old lady who, I presumed, were very friendly with Dr. S.

Dr. S: So how are you today?

Patient:
BAD laaa... Blocked nose till cannot breathe.


Dr. S: Aiyor... So bad ah? So cannot do operation lor now?

Patient: What to do. Flu mar. How can do operation wor?

Dr. S: Wah. So smart. Where did you learn about this?

Patient: Aiyo doctor, I've been in and out of the hospital since I was in from 3.

Dr. S: Hahaha. Oh wait wait...

Then Dr. S turned around and looked at me, pointing at her legs. There were numerous markings of striae, or in lay terms, stretch marks.

Dr. S: What do you think it's due to?

Me: Could be a sign of drastic loss of weight. Or maybe Cushing syndrome.

Dr. S: Okay... Loss of weight? You get these after losing weight?

Me: Yea... Could be.

Dr. S nodded. Yes, indeed. If she was really fat that time. "So what's your final diagnosis? Remembered she was in and out of the hospital since form 3."

Me: Erm. Cushing disease?

Dr. S looked at the patient: So? What was it?

Patient: Precisely. Correct. 100%.

Dr. S laughed so loud, "Not bad ah? See the potentials of the doctors we're producing for the future eh? Good good. Smart future doctor. Smart doctor now. Smart patients. All smart smart!"

The first time I ever answered something spontaneously correctly. Nose growing like that of Pinocchio. Wild guess could be correct sometimes too! LMAO.

Medie007 said...

cushing disease is a disorder of some endocrine hormones secretion, causing the patient to have puffy face, obesity in the trunk, big hump back and all these stuff. :D they usually will have those striae like pregnant ladies one, but theirs are blue in color.
