1. A man comes into the ER and yells:

My wife's going to have her baby in the cab.'

I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's dress and began to take off her underwear.

Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs - - -

and I was in the wrong one.

4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with One of his medications.

Which one?. .. . I asked. "The patch! the Nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I'm running out of places to put it!'

I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see.

Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body!

Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

6. I was performing rounds at the hospital one morning and while checking up on a man I asked . . .' So how's your breakfast this morning?' ? It's very good except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste. Bob replied.

7. A nurse was on duty in the Emergency Room when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing entered. It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for immediate surgery. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green and above it there was a Tattoo that read . . "Keep off the grass."

Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's dressing, which said 'Sorry . . . Had to mow the lawn.'

8. As a new, young MD doing his residency in OB.

I was quite embarrassed when performing female pelvic exams... To cover my embarrassment

I had unconsciously formed a habit of whistling softly.

The middle-aged lady upon whom I was performing this exam suddenly burst out laughing

And further embarrassing me.

I looked up from my work and sheepishly said. . ..

' I'm sorry. Was I tickling you?'

She replied with tears running down her cheeks from laughing so hard . "No doctor, but the song you were whistling was .. . .

"I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener ."

Dr. Wouldn't submit his name....

Baby's First Doctor Visit

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.

The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.

'Breast-fed,' she replied.

'Well, strip down to your waist,' the doctor ordered.

She did as he said and he pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.

Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, 'No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk.'

I know,' she said, 'I'm his Grandma,

But I'm glad I came.

That can't be true. There has to be a law against doing that to your children.

    • I used to worry I was having a heart attack. The symptoms, a pressing, intense chest pain on left side of chest lasting several minutes sometimes. I went through extensive cardio tests and when they turned up negative was told to live with it. I had bouts of it through my life until I went gluten free for entirely different symptoms. Getting rid of those pains was an unexpected but welcome side effect. It's unpleasant and scary but at least if you know that's the case you have an explanation. Don't let that stop you from seeking medical advice if it persists or is different in any way however.  This is, as ever, good advice: Just think about a busy pizza place on a weekend. Flour in the air and on the hands of kitchen staff. Someone phones in an order. Are they 'really' gluten free or just (insert stereotype) hipster posers impressing their friends with their fad diet. Either way no time to change gloves or use different tools. etc etc. It's a high risk environment.  It sucks, but in these first few months particularly you're better errring on the side of caution.   
    • ???? Lundberg do not use oats in ANY of their products. check the grains section http://www.lundberg.com/products/grains/ I guess try lotus if it still bothers you.....you might be like me and all grains/carbs cause some kind of gut issues. I had to go paleo/keto.....thought for years it was just bad gut bacteria but ended up being another AI issues that reacted to carbs.
    • Unfortunately I have a intolerance to oats so Lundberg bothers me. Thanks so much though. 
    • Thank you guys! Great info and I'm researching your suggestions RIGHT now. I am sure I will have questions - I will ask my doc about vitamin deficiency testing and I will NOT do that gluten challenge!
    • Oh wow!  I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature!  Have you heard of Dr Nemechek?  https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/ His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin.  It is all very fascinating and falling in with what we are seeing with our daughter. In a nutshell he says that the bacteria that has overpopulated is "damaging" the system (second brain).  That they are meant to stay in the colon but start to grow out (for multiple reasons) and expand into areas of the intestines that should be populated by other area specific bacteria.  They slowly take over and expand out further.  Probiotics feed EVERYTHING and make the SIBO worse and Antibiotics kills EVERYTHING and does nothing to solve the problem either.  There is one antibiotic - Rifaximin that stays in the colon and does not permeate its walls.  Other than that he suggests that you FEED the good bacteria and allow them to thrive and naturally win back the territory.  Inulin is the food that they eat and taking Inulin (Chickory root fibre) will nourish the healthy bacteria.  3 months ago we stripped away Gluten and dairy and saw HUGE results and then lost them.  We also introduced a very high quality multi-strain probiotic.  Dr Nemechek says that the fact that some people see gains when they go gluten-free/DF because they essentially "starve" the bad bacteria and there is a bit of a dying off.  But it is not fixing the core issue and often you can see food intolerances and symtoms worsen even though you are still gluten-free/DF.  This is EXACTLY the dynamic we are seeing with our daughter.  She is eating AIR but is still in pain and now her Sensory issues seem worse than ever (thanks to the probiotic maybe)? He also says that the healthy bacteria secrete an acidic compound that kills off the bad bacteria which also explains why some people feel better when they consume ACV. I find the entire thing fascinating!
