This should be interesting.  I was filling out my intake paperwork and found myself practicing my history-writing skills on myself..."28 y.o., well-nourished, pleasant female med student NAD, w/ hx of severe, intractable diarrhea, intermittent substernal pain, hypokalemia, wt loss of 22 kg." You can bet your booty he's going to want to do another scope, which will probably be scheduled in the middle of one of my finals.  Mmm...Fleet.
Not sure if this med school thing is good or bad.  It's good because I feel full of information (although much of it is pretty useless in the grand scheme of things).  It's bad because I cleaned the kitchen tonight for the first time in like 2 months and my fiance almost dropped dead from shock.  :-)

I bet this is going to be a challenge for him. I don't have your medical knowledge but the terms have always come easy for me to pick up and I always take a short medical history with me when I see new Dr. The first thing they ask is "am I a nurse" It always make me laught but for the most part they seem to realize then and there that I am not about to be patronized as so many Doctors do. Not patting my hand. Don't you dare try that. So I bet this will be a productive meeting.
