Guy Anatomy Issues

Mr. XY: "I have prostate cancer."

Dr. Grumpy: "Is it being treated?"

Mr. XY: "Yeah, they said it had spread to my uterus or something."

That's a damn shame. That's what that is.

you HAFTA be kidding...

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I wish, but no. His wife looked shocked, too.

It is hard to imagine someone could be so uniformed. My facial expression would have said it all had I been part of that conversation.

MJH, CPhT said...

Gosh, I sure hope they don't have to remove his uterus... That would be awful!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I hear it all. Some of it (I hope) is just a slip of the tongue.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

MJH, CPhT- If they do, at least they could replace it with the one you suggested they take out of Mrs. Nursing earlier today.

That's about as good as the woman who told you her mother had a miscarriage.. with her. :]

Kim said...

LOL! Did his wife at least laugh at that? Please tell me she did! I know I would!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Kim- No, she had this shocked "I married a moron" look.

Before you mentioned his wife, I
envisioned your patient as a
trans-gender person...

I remember a woman called me up once and asked what her husbands Flomax really did.. the sequence of questions went in the direction of what his problem really was to what a prostate is and whether or not this problem can be transmitted to her sexually. :]

ER's Mom said...

So do I need to see him?

Hopefully he meant ureter....

Grumpy, M.D. said...

He likely did. But at least I got a blog post out of his (I hope) error.

I thoroughly enjoyed that post.

Almost as much as when a husband tried to tell me that his wife's "vergina was aproximately 5 cm dilantin"... of course he had her squat over a mirror to check.. just to be sure.

well at least he hasn't gotten pregnant over all of these years. we can only pray he hit menopause and we are all safe.

Heather said...

I would have busted out laughing.

Must be catching. I had a dear old gentleman on a cardiac floor tell me he needed his NTG often for his "TERRIBLE VAGINA". Sad cases, no?
