Guest Cartoon: Surgery Mishap

Note: Cartoon contributed by Jacob


  1. My attending said to me, "if you let go, this woman will bleed to death and it will be all your fault and you will have to live with it."

    I started to miss lap choles around then.

  2. When I was an intern doing surgical call, I assisted in an appy in a 5 year old. I actually got to do most of it (which was damn cool of the attending). I was tying the appendiceal artery off and the attending said "is it tight?" I said yeah. He said "You better be sure, because if not, this kids gonna fill up with a shit load of blood". I threw in two extra knots.
