just a short break… and then back to studying..

Jamie you were close.

A transureteroureterostomy (or as best as I can explain it) is when both ureters (we have two kidneys—or if you are in my family… my dad only has one… my mom… has three!!!—two ureters going to the bladder, & then one urethra). This procedure that I can barely pronounce bring both ureters to the surface of the skin but there is only one opening… so, somehow the surgeon connects both of the ureters… in a regular ureterostomy a person will have two openings through the skin… not so cool in my book.

That’s it..

Pharm test in about 11.5 hours.

Good night all.
