I was excused from calls in third trimester
But I took exams immediately post partum and that was incredibly stressful coz I failed 1 year before. Luckily managed to pass the second time.

It was hard. Incredibly hard. Missed a lot of time with my older child.

Once we sell our condo, we will have another S$1 mil in profits already. Total S$2 mil by investing in properties.

Really don't save much by working, only property investments give astronomical exponential gains.

With Population White Paper of 6.9 mil population by 2030, property sure huat.
I will tell my parents that they should have had me 10 years earlier

Are we excused from calls after delivery? e.g. for at least the first 1-2 years?

After you have gone through the proper channels first.

Your mother or father can appeal to MP for you without your consent.

Can I ask, fellow male practitioners here, do you all get chaperone when examining the lungs or heart? (E.g for urti case)

Feeling scared/confused after the recent mme webinar last sat. Seems quite easy to get complaint/sued nowadays..
If you admit that you examine over the clothes, then they can say this is not the usual standard of care (which is full exposure of chest for respiratory exam)

Just feels that we are in a precarious position practicing medicine daily. Just seen a senior doctor suspended for missing a torsion (for a boy who presented initially with abdominal pain)
Like 1 mistake, your rice bowl gone

unker when i locum, i nv examine front one unless is very paeds or very old aunty.
urti just need to ascultate back for most cases what

die die need chaperone if you touch the front.

the senior doctor suspension is correct. imagine if your son lose a ball. or you lose a ball.
young boy testicular pain is always torsion. after torsion is ruled out is EO.
always refer. you dont have ultrasound in your clinic go get one. if you dont have one, please send to ed.

another trap is cornea ulcer. very painful red eye with vision problem. always refer. then you tell me your clinic no slit lamp or fluorescin. then of course you should refer right. sometimes hard to determine cornea abrasion or ulcer. still refer.

the era is different. in 1800s lose balls nvm, become enunch or castrato singer. in 2020 cannot. coz no job for enunch or castroto singers.

btw gdfm would have sufficiently taught the above two conditions. i was a gdfm grad.
