From a blog post from a medical student. It originally ran in Scientific American's 'This May Hurt a Bit.'





It's okay that you don't remember me. My name is Shara, and I'm part of the surgical team. I'm checking to see how you're doing after your surgery.

Do you know where you are right now?

Actually, you're in the hospital. You had surgery a few hours ago, for a broken hip. You used to be able to walk before you broke it, so it was important to fix it as soon as it was safe to.
