Back at Work

Day 1 of work after having been gone for almost 3 weeks. As it turns out, one of my patients today had a multinodular goiter.

And thus I learnt-

Never a good idea to consume a tall Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha prior to performing a thyroid fine-needle aspiration.

(It was good stuff, actually. And no, there were no complications and I hit the nodule I wanted to. But still, the trembly hands probably did not instill confidence. By the way, did you know that that drink contained 470 calories, 63 g of carbs, and 150 mg of caffeine??? Damnnn...)
