I started in Endoscopy about 6 weeks ago. I was not really sure what I was getting myself into. I heard all the puns associated with the job:

  • that’s a shitty job
  • you really got the wrong end of the deal
  • I hope things come out ok
  • I bet you see a lot of asses

The list goes on .

Ok so the  point of my random rambling thoughts is that job is not that bad. I thought I might I be kind of bored once I got oriented, I believe I was wrong. Every day has been different cause everyone’s colons and stomach can be different. People always ask why the nurses and doctor would take a job dealing with colons. Since I have been in Endoscopy I realized how important the job really is. This week I was able to be in procedure rooms for a few days. At the beginning of the week I had a very young patient come in for a colonoscopy because something was seen on a CT scan. Once we got into her colon we found a mass. We potentially changed her life forever.

Later in the week my dad came in for a colonoscopy.  I was helping at the desk and saw pictures and went to put them in a chart, well it was my dad’s colon. AWKWARD! My dad’s colon was normal which was actually a great feeling. The possibility is always there.
