The Doctor Is The Patient

by | Sep 29, 2021 | Podcast

One of my favorite things to do on this show is share parts of me. Some of my passions, struggles, fears, victories, there are just a few of the things I share.  

I thought of the title of this episode after I had  my last surgery. The plan was for it to be a story from that time of surgery until the time I completed my another full distance Iron Man triathlon  following surgery. Things did not go as plans. While I was able to do a race, it was far from a full distance. Life does not always go as plan but I try to have joy in the journey. 

So I’m going to tell you about my journey from injury, to my surgery, to a few other injuries to my first race post surgery.  

If you have every had an injury, surgery, or a setback,  you’ll feel encouraged by this episode.

 Episode Highlights:

  • Injuring my left knee while ski racing 
  • Knee surgery: How I prepped for surgery and the recovery period
  • Physical therapy and recovering 
  • How I got another injury after my knee got better
  • Other associated injuries sustained during my recovery period
  • What being a patient has taught me
  • Why empathy matters to me as a physician
