Doctor Reacts to HOUSE M.D #2. | "Three Stories" | Medical Drama Review

  • Published on Aug 12, 2018
  • I know how much you guys love Dr. Gregory House, so I decided to dig through the comments sections and find out which episode you wanted me to watch. The episode "three stories" kept popping up with a lot of upvotes. I didn't get any background behind the story of the episode and I just sat down and watched it.
    Now I didn't know it was going to be such a complicated episode to review as it bounced back and forth between three situations. So to simplify we decided to completely remove one of the three patient simulations as we felt it didn't add much to the story and just made it. more complicated for you to follow.
    I wish I knew this was the episode that went on to explain what is wrong with House's leg because then maybe I would've saved it for a later review. But I guess its good for me to know for further episodes anyway.
    I will say this about Dr. House. I think he is a kind guy that comes off brash almost on purpose to be a better doctor. You can totally sense throughout the episodes that I've watched that he is still angry for his decision made in this episode.
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches House MD / Real Doctor Reacts to House MD . If you want me to continue making this doctor reaction video please give it a like and leave me a comment on which tv drama or show you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

    Very cool and thank you. I would say that the snake venom thing.... yea hes a genius. Who knows that? He does. Remember he's supposed to be sherlock holmes. Also yes... all the diseases or presentations thereof are super rare or it wouldn't be a mystery and thats what the show is..... And regarding the residents going out into the field, thats the whole thing theyagree to work under him, a genius, but have to do nonstandard activities.

    This is the first video of yours that I've ever watched, and I subbed immediately - I'm looking forward to seeing more. This is a huge step for me, actually, as I normally hate doctors. I went undiagnosed for 53 years (not a typo) until my eyes began bleeding and an eye doctor finally diagnosed me with Behcet's Disease. By that point, the damage was done. "Malingering" was always the diagnosis of choice before that. This video made me wish that you'd been my doctor (or that my doctors had been a little more like you) many, many years ago. Great work - I can't wait to see more of what you do!!

    I have a bulging disc, to which I was prescribed tramadol, gabapentin and morphine (for burst cysts)
    I took myself completely off the meds as the pain became worse once the meds wore off. Still in loads of pain but not as much as I was with the meds.

    • Fart Knocker

      Where's the bulge? I had one years ago....C7...pain was mental....the retarded initial doctor told me I had muscle strain and I told her she was a dumb bitch because I was in so much pain and appalled by her clearly WRONG diagnosis. I went for a second opinion and the doc said I had a bulging/herniated disc causing nerve compression causing massive pain...CORRECT.

    Okay; fuck you. Opioids? I have vascular necrosis of the right talor dome. Surgical solution was to fuse bones. Refused surgery. I went on weight loss program to reduce pressure. Was using cane. A retired horse trainer saw that I had trouble. Suggested that I use veterinary remedies. I was so desperate that I took his advice. First I started taking Acuflex, main active ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Really helped. Next, started applying DMSO. Then asked Dr. to prescribe Methocarbomal, or Robaxin, as a pain reliever. My doc said that methocarbamol is not a pain reliever-it is listed as a muscle relaxer. I reminded him that I had back spasms. He relented and prescribed methocarbamol. I asked him if he had ever prescribed it to anyone else. He said, “Yes,” to himself. Methocarbamol is listed as a muscle relaxer in the human formulary. In the veterinary formulary it is listed as a very powerful pain reliever for muscular skeletal pain. Methocarbamol has no proprietary formula so I has no real profitability for pharmaceutical manufacturers. That. Is he doctors don’t normally prescribe it. Fuck you, you stooge for big pharma. I have cheated the system without usin opioids. Fuck you.

    Some venomous snakes meter their venom; some do not. Also, where there is one snake there may be another. Knowing what you don’t know is as important as knowing what you do know. Also, are you dealing with a neuro-toxin, a hemo-toxin, or a neuro-hemo-toxin. The east coast has a number of snakes to choose from. You needs to think more open, not so closed.

  • Hans Von Mannschaft

    First of all, thanks for the video.
    Now, the most important thing Dr, is a terrible mistake I noticed between the 4th and 6th minute marks, when you said that these days students and interns achieve the best results when they're hooked up to their phones reading those "five reports (papers) a minute".
    I'm sorry to remind you that if there's one Science that has not made a single breakthrough in the past 50 or so years, and has pretty much stalled ever since the Internet exploded at the turn of the century, despite being based on and aided by Math, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, is Medicine.
    Pasteur, Curie, Fleming, Koch, Barnaard, Favaloro, didn't need five reports made by someone else per minute. They just needed to use their own intelligence and creative capabilities with freedom.
    Speaking about Fleming, didn't he precisely blast out of the World most infectious diseases simply because while working on it, he forgot some petri dishes open in his lab when going on a... Vacation? Or, as you'd put it, when he "went to get coffee?".
    Please, with Cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, etc, still going around, begin encouraging people to rest their minds, go on vacation or get coffee, and specially, get their stupid heads out of their stupid phones. Then, maybe, future doctors will stop living in a bubble thinking they just can't stop making progress, realize they're just microwaving stuff cooked decades ago, and eventually come up with something really new.
    Thank you, may you have a nice day.

    about the snake venom question. house has a particular interest in poisons. Can't remember the episode(s) but you see he was a super rare collection of antidotes and i believe at some point he mentions living in Egypt which has poisonous snakes. this is going by memory so i might a have gotten some details wrong but there is an explanation for most of his knowledge through the show.

    Hi, I know it's been a while since this was posted, but I had a question: Why not merely tourniquette the leg and then drain all the blood from it, before immediately sealing the wound and releasing the tourniquette? I'm guessing that's really stupid, as I'm not a doctor, but why is it stupid?

  • Eclipce051

    So, I have a question. as an IT I know how escalation works. in the case of House for the cases that he takes are "the lost cause" that is going into research basically. Already a level 1 support was done (ER) a level 2 has reviewed (specialist) so a level 3 review is a specialized team (seniors) to check at the problem they normally have at their disposal a team for quick support (hardware/software config and installs) in the case of house I guess is the fact that he has access to all the hospital's equipment and his team has priority over diagnostics or they can do the test themselves. so my question is in IT sometimes we go like a dart board eliminating causes until we get to the root of the problem. do you do the same? a lot of pathogens are alike or have the same symptoms. ?

    wtf this is exactly what happened to me. I got compartment syndrome in my leg and didn't do anything for a couple of hours because I was afraid of having to foot the bill of a hospital visit (a combination of being a student and being an idiot). Finally I ended up going in on an ambulance after passing out from the pain. They said that a lot of my leg muscle had died and I was going to need an amputation.
    Funny thing is I was in so much pain that I didn't care. They rolled me into the operating room and put me under. When I woke up... I still had a leg! They removed a lot of my (calf?) muscle, but there is still enough muscle left that I have some use of the leg.
    I'm not sure of the name of the muscle they removed, but it was along the outer side of my leg. It was the whole length from me knee to my ankle, or at least that's how much they had to cut open because that's the length of my scar.
    After healing for a bit, I could still use my leg but I had no ability to lift my foot. I could push my foot down, but couldn't lift it. This was my right foot so I was scared that I would never be able to drive again.
    I went to physio very often and eventually other muscles in my leg compensated for the missing muscle. I can lift my foot only just barely enough to drive safely.

    Strange that I'm kind of a dumb version of Dr. House.

    While there obviously was and probably still is certain problems with overprescribing opiates, there are always problems with under prescribing them. A certain dose of opiates can change the life of someone in a almost miraculously positive ways. However, if a doctor just cuts off a patient or refuses to help someone in serious pain manage said pain, the patients become extremely more likely to start looking for other ways to get opiates and that's when things go from bad to horrible. I have had probably around 300 fractures (I don't really count anymore and don't go to the hospital when it's not necessary). Opiates have down wonders for me, until my doctor just decided that it was time to cut me off....without helping me tampering off. I could tell you my whole story which is finally going better a day at the time, or the story of people I've known who have pretty much ruined their lives. My advice to doctors would be. Ask for your patients to be honest, but promise that you have no intention of taking the opiates away from all at once and never as some sort of punishment. Make a plan together on how you will proceed to slowly reduce their intake and ask the patient to call once a week to say how it goes or at least tell him that he can call if there's a problem with the plan you made. Obviously, this will be much easier if we can come up with medication that will help patient detox without withdrawal symptoms (it's not like a terrible flu, I broke my spine in three places and I'd have to seriously think hard if I had to chose between that or going through withdrawal again. Yes for some people it only lasts a week, but not everybody.). Obviously, the patient needs to be aware of what he's getting into if there's another way for him to endure the pain without opiates and he still chooses to take them. Last but not least, we need to stop looking at people who are addicted to opiates as junkies. The vast majority of them would love to quit if they could handle the withdrawal and have a place to stay while getting back (it's impossible to be in the harshest environmental conditions and feeling worse than you've ever felt while knowing that with a simple shot or snort or whatever, you could be feeling better.). People trying to quit cigarettes are viewed as heroes, people trying to quit opiates are looked at as junkies and lost causes. I'm not saying opiate users aren't to blame for most of what is happening to them, I'm talking solutions for those who want to feel better and those who want to avoid going down that road. If you have any questions in general or about personal experiences, feel free to write back (is there a way to send private messages on TVclip lol? I don't even know). Anyway, great video again, I just have strong feelings and opinions about everything that touches opiates, pain management and/or OI.

    What people forget about any painkiller is that it never cures the pain. Painkillers can be used to mask pain while you heal, but it can only cover up the pain.
    that is why I cringe when I hear about people getting injections for chronic knee pain, because the injection does not cure the cause, you don't leave masks it and I would argue that it increases the likelihood that further damage will happen during the supposed healing process.

    This show is a good idea, however, it only really works if this doctor sees 100% of all the shows to get a full idea on what the show is really about.
    I recommend binge-watching all the House shows and then get back to us on key parts that you feel we should know.
