I've done more rectal examinations in 2 nights than in 5 years as a student.
But I still haven't introduced myself as Dr Jones. It still sounds wrong. I inwardly cringe a little when my boss introduces us as Miss Smith and Dr Jones. I keep expecting it to be pulled away from me at any second.
Most of all, despite the poo, smells and endless nights I have some amazing colleagues and fantastic nurses as company.
I love being a doctor. It was well worth the effort
