exhausted.....






Yesterday, I knocked off early... unintentionally. After, buka, I called my MO to find out if there is anything urgent as I felt dead tired... shoulders aching, back feels like giving way..... Was so happy when he said he didn't need me there.... I slept off on the sofa by 9pm.... nothing productive done at home tonight...

Why was I soooo tired? Well, yesterday I had few surgeries lined up (monday is my operating day), and all 3 cases used image intensifier.

Image intensifiers are special devices used in surgery and it involves the usage of lower dose x rays to produce images, enabling the viewer/surgeon to easily see the structure of the object being imaged. In Orthopaedics, it is used in surgeries that mostly involves putting an implant in the medullary canal (intramedullary device)


Anyway, since the cases involves radiation from the II, all those involved had to use radiation protection in the form of a lead gown (which weights > 3 kgs)... So I had a total of 5 hours lifting more than 3 kgs on my shoulders.... During surgery, I did not feel anything, I guess the adrenaline was pumping.... but at the end of the last case, oh boy, everywhere aches...

I guess this is added on by the fact I am fasting, and drove all the way from KL in the morning... or perhaps just that I am already old.... hmmmm......
