Doctor Needs A New Brain

Shaikha had a sore throat so her parents took her to the clinic. The Dr there did the routine things, checked for a fever, listened to her heart and peeked down her throat.

Dr : oOooooh you have very sever tonsillitis

Shaikha: tonsillitis?

Dr : yeah your tonsils are infected

Dr writes down a bunch of medication, antibiotics and so on.
Shaikha leaves the room and goes to her dad who was waiting outside.

Shaikha: the dr said I have a severe case of tonsillitis

Dad: tonsillitis?

shaikha : yeah as in my tonsils are infected

Dad: are you sure she said tonsils?

shaikha: yeah

Dad: she didn't say something else

shaikha: no dad she said i have tonsillitis

Dad: honey you had your tonsils removed when you were 5!

To the Dr I say : malat 3alaich!

I always thought of that, how can you have an infection in something that does not exist, but when I asked they told me: You can have inflammation of the tissue where the tonsils used to be. Some might still say the name is wrong though

I think they should report the doctor.

April 5, 2008 at 11:10 PM  

Perhaps they grew back :P

April 5, 2008 at 11:26 PM  

Give the dr a break. She didnt make a fatal mistake. She probably had pharyngitis which is almost the same thing.

If ur gonna report doctors for every little mistake they make then believe me, ur not gonna have any doctors left, in Kuwait, or the whole world !

Doctors are not Gods.
They make mistakes, like any other human.
Jala man la yas'ho ya jma3a.

April 5, 2008 at 11:45 PM  

she should have told her i had em revomed and embarrassed her

ee ashal shay

anything is possible!

maybe u sympathize cause you know how hard it is.
But when your a dr theres no room for mistake.
We dont have to wait for her to kill someone so she pays better attention.
Ya3ni i cant drill the wrong tooth then say its ok its not fatal!
how can she diagnose something thats not even there!

April 5, 2008 at 11:54 PM  

Nothing wrong here. Tonsils grow back:

"If even a small bud of tonsil or adenoid tissue is left behind by the surgeon, the tonsil or adenoid may regrow. With regard to tonsillectomy, the risk of regrowth depends greatly on technique. "

April 6, 2008 at 11:18 PM  

lol... dont worry about... the way doctors speak, tonsilitis may have nothing to do with your tonsils anyway! they all use wierdo words

April 8, 2008 at 4:08 PM  

poor littel thing
hathy al kuwait 9al 3ala e nbi

There is no such thing as no room for error, cuz its impossible. Human beings were made to make mistakes.

Im not sympathising with her cuz i know how hard it is. Im just being a little objective. If u had told me some surgeon operated on the wrong organ, yes i would be with u and i'd say that doctor really does need a new brain.

Anyways, in a couple of years u will graduate and u will be practicing and u will see how easy it is to make silly little mistakes that have no harm on the patient's health and how the patient's or their families will pounce on u as if u were trying to kill the patient not heal. And how they right u off as incompetent doctor just for that small insignificant mistake. It happens. It happens a lot. Especially in a country like Kuwait, where there is no respect for doctors and no trust in their competence.
