Have you ever felt that your doctor is giving nasty replies? If yes, then you might have frustrated him with dozens of unnecessary questions.
Let me give you a suggestion, never let your mother have a conversation with your doctor because every mother is a self-proclaimed doctor and that's a fact. And doctors hate that too!
Given below are some of the funniest and ridiculous things a patient has ever said to a doctor.
A Paediatrician told a funny story, he said, "A woman allowed his son to eat ridiculous amounts of sugar and then gets him to run around in the yard to burn it all off because she doesn't like pumping him full of that insulin."
A doctor once said that his patient was concerned that his cancer was contagious. He wanted to know how to keep his puppy from 'contacting' it. He was more concerned about his tiny puppy getting cancer because of him. When the doctor told him that cancer is not contagious, there was a joy and relief in his eyes. He was so happy that he could cuddle his puppy again.
A surgeon once quoted, "Whenever I told the patient not to eat 12 hours prior to surgery, all they would do, is eating."
A medical student narrated a very embarrassing story. He said, "I was taking my patient's history, when my senior doctor takes a group of other medical students to see my progress and whether I am doing it correctly. I was speaking to the patient about his symptoms, and I used the word 'penis', to which he gave me a confused look. I said it again and he still didn't know what I was talking about. I ended up having to ask him if he had any pain in his wiener while peeing."
By the way, the guy was in his 40s.
A lady came up to a doctor with some liver issues. The doctor asked her to reduce alcohol consumption. The lady did cut out whisky and vodka but did not know that Guinness had alcohol.
Taking a medication twice a day does not mean taking the doses together. One dose now, one dose later. That's what it means. Is it that difficult to understand?
Trust me, you'll die after reading this one. A gynaecologist had to tell a 19-year-old that she needs to change her tampon more than once a day.
This one is really cute. A doctor had to explain to her grandmother that there isn't one straight tube connecting our ears. She put ear drop in and put cotton in her other ear before she laid down, so it won't leak.
We all know that soda has sugar. Don't we? Guess what, a diabetic man didn't know this. And by the way, he was in his mid-50s.
A doctor once said, "My wife is a postpartum nurse and so more than one occasion she has had to explain that the baby does not come out of your butt." Really?
