Did you get the path report yet? I want to know what it actually was.
I have not, and it happened few months back so I can't recall the patient's ID so that I can look it up. However, if it was to end up being something BAD, I would have gotten a letter from the pathologist.
Can't wait to find out the results from patho! This was a most relaxing video.
Hi Dr O. Thank you for sharing this video. I found it very interesting. Really wanted to know if you ever answered the covid questions on your blog. I asked one of them. Still struggling with what to tell my emergency contact my wishes if I get covid and it goes bad. Need to decide on using an vent or having them just let me die.
Oh dear, I pray that you would try the ventilator for a while if needed. A lot of people are surviving. Please leave it up to your power of attorney or closest family member to decide what's best for you if you become unresponsive. Praying for you. ❤🙏
Brenda...why would't you consider ventilator if needed? I certainly would do it. There is an ER doctor that got sick with COVID and had to be intubated 3 different times, just last week she was discharged from the hospital! So unless you have many comorbidities, or severe lung disease you always have a chance of surviving.
On a personal note, If I was getting sick enough to be circling intubation, I would definitely 'video record' my goodbyes before it was too late. Certainly I would feel like if I got to the point of intubation, there is a good chance I might not make it and make my 'peace' and 'goodbyes' before that happens.
Dr.O., Hello! I very much enjoyed your excellent educational video of the skin lesion excision. Will you please share the path report when received? This lesion looked very suspicious. Thank you,Xander God Bless!
What was that?
Oh my gosh! That was gruesome! Loved it! Looked like a peach pit too me!! Are you going to do a follow-up on the pathology?! Keep up the food work and stay safe!!
Hi Dr. Carlo, I’m so glad to see you posting procedures again. I like how kind and thoughtful you are with the patient. And when you have people in training with you it’s obvious you have a talent for teaching. Be safe!
I'm curious. The skin on the inside of the split looked very fresh and even, but there were areas on the inside of the skin that looked damaged and rough. Why didn't you clean that up before suturing?
