    Before reading through the rest of the thread and/or seeing answers posted, I'm going to take my guesses......


    1) PAFO - Peed and fell over?
    2) PONV - i'm thinking either "oral" or "post op" nausea & vomiting
    3) OOHA - something to do with opthalmic headaches?

    4) and this is one I accepted without thinking, until I realised I didnt know what it stood for - INR.
    5) PND - Postnasal Discharge/drainage
    6) FITH'S DISEASE - some type of virus? (been awhile since I saw/heard this one)
    7) CAD - Coronary Artery Disease
    8) PUIT - purple urine in tube (I totally don't know this one!)
    9)TURP - Transurethral Resection of the Prostate


    now to hit reply and continue reading the thread and see how many I got right :spin:
