But somehow, even though I’ve enjoyed it far more than I thought I would, I can’t see myself ever becoming a surgeon.
The surgeons we’ve been with, work very long days and many of them seem to spend a crazy proportion of their time at the hospital working. That kind of lifestyle doesn’t really appeal to me… In the future I don’t want my life to just be about medicine. I want to be able to enjoy all the other parts of my life and have time for my family too.
Also I don’t think I have the hand-eye coordination to do all the tiny fiddly parts of surgery :p
