Maybe they could use a trans-rectal approach for surgery instead of trans-sphenoidal.

Well, I will leave the medical advice to the ones who have done med school, but as a human being with some knowledge of anatomy, this man has problems.

Big ones.

BTW, if you don't know, Google pitutary gland and see where you wind up. Minus 10 points if you have to do the same for the sciatic nerve.

OMDG, or his head is up his ass.

That is like the pituitary tumor that ate manhattan. The Godzilla of pituitary tumors.

This was exactly what I needed to read after the world's hardest pharmacology exam. Thanks!

Yep, that's huge alright!

PA Honeybee said...

I'm with Old Squid, his head must be up his ass for sure!

Corn said...

Wow... I'm just imagining the pituitary snaking all the way down to his sciatic nerve. That's one big tumor.

Genuinely impressive... but wouldn't the best medical solution be to advise him to remove his cranium from his rectum and call it good??

I had a confused elderly woman in my ED recently say: " My doctor got me to remember this and he said it's very important to say whenever I go into hospital. I only have two neurons, and they don't synapse properly."

For once a local doctor thinking of us in ED! The hard part was keeping a straight face.
