So I went to see my patient today. He mentioned that he'd had problems urinating this weekend. And I quote: "Well, you know, I have that enlarged prostrate. Sometimes it makes it hard to pee. You know, when I was in the hospital, they had to castrate me cause I couldn't pee."
Gotta say, that seems unnecessarily harsh.
So I replied, "Do you mean catheterized you?" "Oh yeah," he said, with a laugh. "Catheterized. But then again, they may've castrated me too, I don't know." We laughed for a couple of minutes over that.
I just love my job.
