USA – In a unified statement from general surgeons across the country, the nation’s surgeons have announced a plan to sit on it until it “declares itself one way or the other.”
“If they need an operation, they will be the first to let us know,” spokes-surgeon Davy Fonzarelli announced to a gathering of emergency medicine, internal medicine, and GI doctors.
While the nation’s surgeons acknowledge that under traditional circumstances an operation would be indicated, they pushed the emergency medicine doctors to go ahead and admit to medicine, and reassure the internists that surgery will still follow along. Best to get GI involved sooner rather than later, though, since they definitely might need a scope maybe.
“I mean, really we should just be working on optimization before even starting to talk about surgery, and given that the exam and imaging are inconsistent its best that we just watch and wait,” Dr Fonzarelli told the visibly upset gathering of medical professionals using audible hand waving. “It’s just not something that we think needs to be rushed to the OR.”
As of press time, the nation’s surgeons were calling in the overnight OR staff for an emergency operation.
