I was thinking about times when patients use medical terminology
that is a little different than what we would expect. Here are a few examples:
A patient had his "goldbladder" removed.
A patient with CAD s/p heart stent had "heart springs".
I had a patient who had a "cadillac" (cataract) removed from their eye.
One of my favorites: when a patient has "the gout".
Or there are the ever popular names for certain body parts, such as the lady who wanted to make sure her gown was tied so her "goody bits" wouldn't show. I know there are more I have heard but can't think of them know.
Anyone want to share?
