True, True, and Very Funny

A few  lighthearted moments from practice:

A gentleman of advanced age came in with swelling of the ankles. It was important to ask him if he had any chest pain with activity.

Me: “Do you have any chest pain with activity?”

He: “Activity?”

Me: “Yes, physical activity, like walking, running… What’s the most physically active thing you do in a day?”

He: (Pauses to think). “Sex.”

A middle-aged woman came to see me for a physical exam, including a Pap smear. Obtaining a sexual history is a routine part of the patient interview.

Me: “Are you sexually active?”

She: “Well, no. I just lie there.”

Me: “Are you sexually active?”

She: “Yes.” (Pause.) “Wait. You mean with people?”
