Premature man-o-pause


Specializes in Med/Surg.

I was reading the H&P of a pt who is a 48 yo male admitted with a SBO, esophageal Ca w/extensive METS. I must tell you that this is someone who was born a male. You will see why this is important soon!

The oncologist had done his H&P and I am hopeing that there was a transcription error ... as I read through the past medical problems list one thing stuck out. It stated the he had a "Hx of sleep apnea treated with oophorectomy". I burst out laughing :rotfl: !!! Needless to say that all the other nurses and aides around me were wondering what I found so amusing. I said that I had discovered a new cure for my heavy snoring ... I just had to have my ovaries removed! Now I can tell my wife that not only will my snoring keep her awake, but she doesn't have to worry about me getting pregnant!!! My only real concern is will the surgery put me into premature man-o-pause! We were all rolling by this time. I am chuckling just thinking about it now.

I hope you enjoyed, have a great day!

hehehe that was pretty funny. Thanks for sharing it, got a chuckle out of me.

WOW! Never thought about this one, I'll send it to my husband, I've been telling him I can't sleep with him because of his snoring, now I know it's because I don't want to get him pregnant!!!!!! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
