Now I wish to let the ghosts of Aamir Khan and his Satyamev Jayte to get buried in it's grave ........enough of it......whether he says sorry to IMA ore not,whether the people think that all doctors are unethical,I need to rest this issue in peace for the sake of my peace.I love my profession,operating fibroids, endometriosis,polyps,removing uterus ,delivering babies and much more.I need to perform my work with full concentration or I might harm you.A pilot's job is very crucial......deals with so many lives but still they have an auto pilot.We have nothing like an auto surgeon.
Few days back one of our registrar's went to take a preoperative consent from a Lady for some surgery(not my patient so don't know it in great detail).The Lady's husband asked the young doctor whether she was taking this consent to cover the incompetency of the operating Gynaecologist.She was taken aback.......It is a medico legal requirement after all.
In all fairness to my patients I would say that none ........not a single patient of mine has shown any distrust towards the doctors.And I am greatful to you.
In my career spanning almost 13 years post PG,I have had my shares of complications.......not many ...........I can count them on my finger tips and in fact remember all of them to write all the details about it.
When she left the hospital after about a week she left as a happy patient.But that was her who had 'forgiven' me.What would have you done.Done the same or declared me an incompetent surgeon who did a complication and covered it with the blanket of consents?Just think for a while and let me know your opinion.
