Doctor Reacts to WILD Medical Tweets

I’ve burnt myself out fact-checking dangerous Facebook and Instagram health posts lately, so today I headed to twitter to have a laugh and check out the funniest medical tweets I could find. As they say, there is always “truth in comedy” and these tweets were no exception. For instance, it’s true, you don’t HAVE to get weighed when you come in for a routine checkup. I also talk about sleep apnea/CPAP machines, as well as weight loss surgery. Bear popped in to say hello too :)
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • "anything you don't want to do, you don't have to" LIES!! About a year ago, I made an obgyn appointment for the sole and singular reason of getting my birth control refilled (I need it to prevent severe, debilitating cramps). And there I am, waiting for whatever doctor I'll end up seeing that day, and a nurse walks in and tells me to change into a gown for my very first ever pelvic exam. I was not there for a pelvic exam. I was not prepared to have that dropped on me. I did not want a pelvic exam. So I asked the nurse of I could not do that that specific day and she literally told me no, I had to do it, shoved the gown into my arms and left. I was terrified and shaking the whole time. On the upside though, the doctor was super nice and understanding.

  • We groan whenever we see an order come in for a Levothyroxine drip. Organ harvesting is a process. No one (unless you're a serial killer) is itching to rip out their patients organs.

  • When I tell people I’m an organ donor they give me weird looks or will be like “why?” Boi when I die I’m either going in the ground or being turned to ash. Why have my organs thrown out (since they do take your organs out when preparing your body for visual at a funeral) when they could be given to someone who has been waiting desperately for a chance to have a better life. If my heart is healthy and I match with someone who has a bad heart and they get it, they could actually be able to live a life without worrying about their heart failing and killing them. There are so many things you can give to help people when you die. Your skin, muscle, eyes, hair, lungs, heart, liver, intestines, bladder, kidneys, why would you let those go to waste when someone could survive with them? I won’t be needing my organs when I’m dead. 🤷‍♀️

  • My stepdad used a CPAP machine the entire time he was with us (passed a year ago) and when I first saw it as a teenager, I couldn't believe anyone would be able to sleep with that head mount and breather, because the hose wasn't very long, the mask looked uncomfortable and if you roll around or toss and turn, like I do while trying to sleep the mask could come off or could potentially choke you out (I know this isn't very likely) but somehow he made it work...

  • Hospitals are extra echo-y because the sound bounces off the ceiling floor and all walls. Empty houses sound similar. Once you add things to a room the sound doesn’t bounce. That’s why recording studios are covered in foam

  • LOVE the organ donor information, but how do you get REMOVED from the donor list? The state can't remove it from my driver's license, and I'm a walking pharmacy (plus my organs aren't viable for transplant bc chronic conditions - but I look normal externally). I REALLY do not want them ripping me open just to find out that I'm a wreck, especially if there's a recipient expecting it (they go through enough hell as is). Aside from estate planning, family being aware, and doing all the advance directives at every possible hospital I go to, how can I fix this in case I die elsewhere?

  • I’d love to donate my body to medical science- I don’t need it after I die. I love the idea of it going on to help others- either by organ donation or to help help doctors learn surgical skills. I have a chronic constant migraine- study of my brain may help develop a better treatment for chronic pain like a migraine

    • I've had both an advance health care directive that specifies dnr/dni wishes for next medical event and also a bequeathment to a hospital that I used to be a frequent flyer at, for over 2 years now but still receive healthcare sporadically from currently . I have migraines too plus I'm a lightening rod for complications with medications, procedures etc that usually help other people that left me quite disabled and not feeling comfortable being a donor anymore, feeling that my organs would be subpar, so I chose to do a body donation, requesting cremation and my remains being stored where the hospital has a spot for donors who don't want for whatever reason their remains returned to family, after the hospital is done with the body. Depending on how your family is, it's not necessary a fun conversation to have, either end of life wishes and after death ones, I do think it's important though for people to have and not to wait til an emergency situation to have it. I'm hoping though in your case, perhaps there is more they can do for better headache control while you're still here.

  • Given that normal body temperature is based on an average, those of us who have a normal below 98.6 have to tell hospital staff that our normal is lower so that they can tell we actually do have a fever at 99.5. Normal for me is 97.5. I feel feverish at 99, which is not that much higher than 98.6. When my temperature hits 99.5 or higher, then I know I'm in trouble. Your viewers need to be aware of this kind of fluctuation in 'normal' PS I want to hear the Antarctica appendectomy story too

  • One detail about organ donation: You or your estate, or in many cases, your life insurance are charged for every second of ICU care between the moment you are pronounced dead and the moment your care is terminated, if you're an organ donor. This can be _many_ 10s of thousands of dollars taken from your surviving family. Until the laws are changed, this is a very good reason NOT to be an organ donor in the US. The medical/insurance companies have a stranglehold on congress in the US.

  • Hospitals have that echo probably because all the materials used in the build are very closed and smooth. This is necessary because it means the materials will not (or as little as posible) absorbe chemicals and all type of fluids and or dirt, which keeps it clean and sanitary. Burt this materials don't absorbe vibrations (and thus the sounds) and they bounce of those materials because it has such a smooth surface. ~quick view of an interiorarchitecture student

  • Hospitals are extra-echoey because the walls are made of hard materials that don’t absorb soundwaves but bounce them back, and the halls/atriums tend to be quite big so there’s extra room for the soundwaves to bounce around before they hit something soft (like a human) that absorbs most of them. Keeping soft, soundwave-absorbing materials clean in a hospital setting is wildly impractical, so the echo just comes with the territory. The same phenomenon can be observed anywhere with a lot of concrete/stone with very few curtains and rugs, especially if the place is big like a cathedral or an aeroplane hangar. If some room in your home (where you can add soft materials) is too echoey, simply add a rug on the floor and some curtains/wallcloth where you can. Basically anything works as long as it breaks the big smooth wall area, but soft materials work the best. Even adding a sofa or other furniture can make a huge difference. For comparison’s sake: yelling in a canyon (empty space and all stone) echoes a lot, while a dense forest (softer materials, no big continuous walls) seems to almost cancel all the sound you make. Same principle for buildings.
