Listening to dumb early noughties songs
…working on finding better ways to perform medicine on fat bodies, perhaps surgical complications wouldn’t happen so often to fat people. That instead of surgeons complaining about how hard performing operations on fat people are, they found ways besides making fat people thinner to make those operations easier.
I’ll never get past surgeons actually whining and moaning fat people are too difficult to perform surgery on.
LISTEN TO ME AND LISTEN WELL
You know why they complain? Because cutting through more tissue takes more time, they can’t beam through fatty tissue any more than they can beam through muscle tissue, with the added problem that fatty tissue is softer. It will wobble. It will expand. Have you ever handled a raw piece of meat with a substantial amount of fatty tissue? You can feel the difference when you touch it. It also makes minimal-invasive procedures harder because you gotta navigate past the fat, which might obscure the surgeon’s field of vision, too.
Also lethal complications often come from heart failure, which is something obesity puts you at a higher risk for (here). There’s exactly zero any surgeon can do about that.
I just really really want TiTP to stop talking about medicine, and to stop taking submissions about medicine when clearly they don’t know what they’re talking about. You can be as fat as you like, but don’t blame other people because YOU don’t understand how medicine works. If you think it’s as easy as ‘oh we’re just going to invent a new method!’ go right ahead and maybe study medicine or invent that procedure. There is nothing stopping you.
