Some things you dread at work. A pap-athon is hated by all of us in the office. Certain annoying patients. Insurance companies and their assinine hoops.
And then, there are some surgeries that you book - knowing that it will be difficult. Could be minimal descensus for a vag hyst, whiny patient with unrealistic expectations (the pain will ALL GO AWAY!!!), the large uterus for a laparoscopic hyst. I had one of those types of cases booked today.
3+ hours into the pain, I looked over at my partner and asked what baked goods she wanted in the office, because I really owed her for agreeing to scrub in with me on this one. My back is killing me, my arms were jello by the end of the case.
