新年快乐! 恭喜发财! 身体健康!!
Happy Chinese New Years everyone. The Year of the Dragon now gives way to the Year of the Snake.
Apologies for the lack of posts of late. Transitioning from interviewing and vacation back to rotations is tough, and to a surgical sub-internship no less! My hatred for surgery is nowhere near as intense as it was last year, though my . . . displeasure for surgery is 90% in the hours (specifically how early I have to wake up).
That said, this surgery site is pretty chill all things considered. I love taking the surgeries that don't have a resident in them because I get to be first assist and do more (and see more). The attending surgeons here let me do a fair bit more than I was allowed to as an M3 last year. I can see how one would love doing surgery; however, I still hate waking up before 5am and standing for hours on end putting strain on my lower back. I should start doing some yoga . . .
More posts coming up soon (hopefully). I have an unfinished one drafted.
