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!

  • 4:40 That might be because the floors and walls are being kept squeaky-clean (pun intended). So the slightest noise spreads around, with nary a grain of dust or drop of grease to absorb it.

  • That appendectomy situation reminds me of a story about my great grandpa. He was a Navy Pharmacist who wanted to be a doctor but couldn't afford medical school. He was getting his appendix out under local anesthesia and asked for a mirror so he could watch the surgery. They let him watch too.

  • @4:43 Hospitals are 'extra echoey' because of the lack of carpeting and softer surfaces, which require loads of extra cleaning to remove bacteria, viruses, bodily fluids, etc, and due to any extra cleaning could also become breeding grounds for molds and fungi.

It feels really good to have a doctor that you can be honest with and they're willing to meet you where you're at and help you from there instead of passing judgment and will only be nice to you when you've met their standards and don't really care how you get there.

  • I love these so, so much, and have also been (re)watching so many of Dr. Mike's videos to keep myself sane and listen to someone talk who is both intelligent and caring... In other words, thank you Dr. Mike (even though you'll probably never see this) Fun(?) fact - hospitals are super echoey for the same reason that older cathedrals are - there are practically no soft surfaces (carpeting, cushiony furniture, etc) to absorb the sound, so everything just bounces off the hard surfaces... The weird things you learn as a singer who is also fascinated by physics/science/engineering :) Also, as someone who interned in Tissue Recovery for a few years, we do actually recover bones! Some of it is for research, but also bone marrow transplants and some other uses.

  • The sound echo thing is pretty simple actually. Sound waves bounce off of solid surfaces and are dampened by softer surfaces. Since hospitals usually have hard floors (ex: linoleum), as well as other objects with hard surfaces (wood desks), and the hallways are generally pretty spacious with solid walls, sounds will carry quite well.

I know it's just a year, but I'm back to my hs weight (I was heavy back then, too, but that's something!) and haven't budged on it in all this time. Not only that, but I *want* to exercise now! I'm excited to care for myself. It's giving me a boost in my morale and self confidence to keep trying to improve that just exercise and trying to eat right couldn't do because I can see and benefit from the changes. I'm so happy I did it. Total life changer.

  • So hospitals are extra echoey because of the lack of soft surfaces. In general a home office or even a school (precovid) has a good mix of soft and solid surfaces but to make cleaning more simple and effective hospitals end up being large spaces with no soft surfaces to deaden the sound.

But I was feeling stubborn because I knew she was trying to make us smile so I frowned harder, and she said "Why aren't you smiling?" And I said "I'm exercising" I'd like to say I was being witty but I was 8 and it was just the first thing that came to mind to keep me out of trouble for my rebellion. 😂

  • Hospitals are extra echoey because most of the time the floors, walls and ceilings are made of smooth surfaces like marble or cement or something, and makes it easy for the noise to bounce around. Noise insulators like carpets and thick curtains aren’t used (and hospital curtains are thin and sometimes plastic), but if there was carpet on the floors and walls, and heavy curtains, it would be waaay quieter

  • My thoughts on organ donation: If I am in bad enough shape that the doctors would consider harvesting my organs to give to someone else I probably wouldn't have even remotely good quality of life if I managed to survive so I'd rather save a life. I don't fear death so if I die I die & I hope my death will be able to help someone. The doctor giving himself an appendectomy story sounds interesting. Bear is adorable. Did anyone ever upload a Sim of him to the Sims4 gallery?

I gave my signature to this. 30min later in the tube the nurse asked me for my right arm as "normally everbody gets this shot". If I haven't complained and refused she would have given it to me. Nobody cares about your rights if you don't speak up. Later it turned out that the pictures were fine and very useful, although no agent was used.
