The first time I ever saw a renal biopsy, I nearly fainted.
I was sort of squeamish when I started med school and this was my very first rotation. What can I say? It was a really big needle.
I really tried to be strong. The first time I started to feel that queasiness, I ran from the room, collected myself, then came back. Then it happened again. And I left and came back. And one more time after that.
Not my finest moment.
Anyway, a few weeks later, I was talking to a fellow med student who had watched a renal biopsy that day. The renal fellow apparently said to her, "Well, you did better than Fizzy."
The bastard TOLD her about me and my embarrassing near-fainting!
I thought that was really wrong. But maybe I'm just oversensitive.
