I must apologize for being rubbish on this blog. Well, well, I must confess its so hard to blog about my hospital experience, not because I am so busy (which I kinda am), but primarily because of patient confidentiality. Its hard to twist a story, to preserved patient confidentiality, but I try when I can, because some cases are worth sharing.
An update: I'm currently in Malta (oh d places my final year has taken me to!), for two months and currently doing my obstetrics and gynecology practice. The hospital is a new state of the art national hospital and the primary hospital on the island. Malta's health care system is rated fifth in the world by WHO, very similar to the UK ( I did my internal practice there) which ranks at 18. The Maltese people are so friendly and polite and I am having a great time here.
So the other day, I attended a surgery of a 23 year old lady who had invasive cervical cancer. I know this is not the normal scenario, and as young people we never expert to have certain illness. The truth is that we feel we are immortal, and certain illnesses is for the elderly only. well I had a reality check. I'm sharing this not to scared people or all, but to tell any one who reads this post to go get a PAP SMEAR. VERY IMPORTANT!!. read more here.
