I think it was. They did come back and thank me. I'm still in contact with them and have no shortage of work from those fellows.
Varies according to client and job. The bullet job for example paid me 1000 dollars for about 50 bucks in material and less than an hour of work.
I've done some work for free, the most I've been paid is 15000 for a single job.
The guy was practically dead and I actually had to take him to my safehouse from the van for almost a week. He was set on fire and shot in the legs. I amputated his left leg below the knee and scored him a prosthetic. He was also permanently scarred from his crotch to his neck. No infections or complications though. He's living. Not so happy or pretty. But living.
I respect what you do OP. Helping people who can't afford trips to the ER, that's fucking beautiful.
That being said: Please for the love of God, don't become a psychopath whose fetish is ripping the flesh from his patients and reforming them into some horrific freak of science.

Being a doctor isn't worth it anymore. At least legit.
I quit going in my 4th year towards my Doctorate. I couldn't deal with the red tape, the greed, and the lack of empathy.
I wanted to became a doctor to help people goddammit. Not to report people for having a fucking bit of coke in their system.
is being a doctor better in other countries than the US?
Instead of going to med school to become a legit doctor, what other methods of learning the doctoral trade would you recommend?
Reason I'm curious is I like to help people as well.
How doctor do you doctor?
If I ask you to doctor and you arent doctor, then am i doctored? Elswise, I doctored once and the doctor didnt doctor because doctoring. Is this dangerous?
Med student here... I understand your point, in fact I fuckinb hate the people who study with me. It's all about the ego and money and shit. I'd like to graduate and just move to a rural area and help those people out.
Medicine fucking sucks yo

I've been asked to murder someone with drugs.
I absolutely refuse.
I've only ever had to put one person under and that's because they were suffering beyond comprehension.
You can get many text books on the subject but you need SOME medical training to be worth a fuck. You get experience in med school you can't get on your own.
I doctor a doctor doctor. Doctor.
It's hard but worth it. It changes you, seeing these people.
Cancer. I am not an Oncologist.
Let's see how legit this dude actually is.
Starting off with an easy one:
Patient is brought in with fractures in her hand. Female, 25.
She is hysterical and nurses state she was violent. Tox negative, blood normal, pressure and pulse elevated.
She has a med history with two injuries in the past two months, one of which was suspected to be a suicide attempt.
She reports she punched a wall out of anger. (You noted hastened speech.) She admits one of the injuries was in fact a suicide attempt, but "that she got over it".
Treatment and prelim. diagnosis?
Depends on the something. Don't use a table saw. Use a bone saw. Reciprocating saws work as well.
Like I've said. Some things are commercially available. Other things I have to get from Russians and Jews.
Yes, it makes you cold and uncaring when you see these kids prancing around all proud because they're gonna be doctors! Makes me wanna puke how self centered and arrogant they are
since OP is not a legal doctor he'd probably treat the fractures and give her some pain killers. There isn't anything he can do about her mental instability. I don't OP has prozac lying around.....dick
Observation. Check medical history extensively, watch for reaction when interviewed by nurse versus doctor.
Hastened speech and hand injury with history of mental illness as well as violent demeanor indicate a history of abuse. Check for other injuries.
Suspect Battered Woman syndrome, obtain proper information through treatment and interview, administer anti-depressants and observe for 24 hours. Contact authorities if initial diagnosis correct. Perscribe therapy and SSRI. Follow up bi-weekly.
You'd be surprised how nice the guys are.
They're more happy that I actually exist and am willing to help them. Occasionally a small timer tries to act tough around me, but I just don't buy into the bullshit.
Forgot to add the injury is from being slammed in a door.
You've never told a patient's onlookers some bullshit? He obviously tore the stitches being too active.
But I wanted to him not to drink while on his new medication.
I don't have to be honest if it helps people.
Patient is single and there never was a police report.
Responds equally to nurses and doctors. (Should have added that.)
After treatment, she becomes more erratic and euphoric and has to be restrained at some point. Didn't sleep at all and reports barely sleeping 24h prior to coming in.
First injury was minor head trauma. Apparently due to fainting after partying two straight days.
Second was a month later, the self harm.
(Dude, making patients up without making it too obvious is hard as fuck.)
I wish I had rich mummy and daddy to pay for my tuition.
>Working class, single parent household.
>Household income £8,000
Should I drop out? I'm only here because I really want to help people to the best of my abilities and many of the most important doctors in history studied here so I thought it was a good start. Any advice?
How does it feel to know that you're probably one of the biggest bad-asses on the streets? Seriously, I'm no med student nor do I want to be anywhere near the medical scene, but the idea of a doctor who does "off the record" work in a fucking van is pretty sweet, must admit. Based anon doing good work.
>Overweight woman brought to me by husband.
>She stinks. She absolutely reeks.
>I already assume the worst and decide to ask the husband what's going on.
>"She's just been feeling super sick and can't keep her food down. Her mood is bad."
>Get stats, hook up, she has elevated blood pressure and heart rate, labored breathing.
>Flip on the fans and try to circulate the air a bit, my mask is NOT helping.
>I lift up the woman's stomach flap and am horrified to see necrotic flesh, maggot infested and oozing with puss.
>She's crying in Spanish.
>Husband says they couldn't go to a normal doctor because they're illegals.
>Cut away the dead infected tissue, remove the maggots, disinfect everything, double check for any remaining critters. The pan is full of maggots and dead fat and rotted skin. I sew her up, it took a LOT of stitches. This was a foot across at least.
>I administer another dose of anesthetic and prescribe anti-biotics, pain killers, and a DIET.
>She comes back with her husband 3 months later.
>She's lost over 100 pounds. Is happier, healed up nicely.
>He says he convinced her by showing her the pan full of maggots and rot.
>I tell him to keep his money.
>I saved a life.
Also injuries are consistent with her stories.
She also reports partying was due to flunking uni after doing nothing for several weeks. ("Just didn't see the point, you know?")
Don't feel bad anon, I still think the only reason I got was because of my low income background. What were you applying for? I also had a couple mates applying for Land Economy and only one of them got in.
NatSci, so competition was obscene. My interviews went awesome as well IMO. I think I should have applied to Kings, they take 70% state schooled so they must have a positive bias.
Tough crowd with NatSci with the recently raised entry requirements and all. Sometimes it just doesn't go right no matter what. I just opted to be put into any college that would take me and so I ended up at Trinity. Maybe take a /useful/ gap year and try again next year.
One last thing, did you meet the entry standards? A*A*A?
Nope. Except for the SSRIs you gave her for observation.
(If I didn't write something, assume it is isn't there. I didn't feel like overcomplicating or even writing up an entire bio.)
Also I'd really like to know where the hell you studied, assuming BWS and drugs as more likely than what I'm going for here.
maybe it's been answered already but I've only been reading greentext so far.
So how did you come to start practicing medicine illegally? Did you go to university and not complete your program? Did you fail the licensing examinations? Did you figure you'd make more money undercover? Or do you have some weird doctors without borders ideology?
Keep the greentexts coming. This is probably the most fascinating thread I've seen on /b/ in months.
Apologies if these questions have already been asked:
What country/region are you based out of?
Do you have an office set up or do you have a mobile base (like a converted van/bus type vehicle)? Meaning, how would someone find you to make use of your services?
I'm in second year 6th form, predicted A*A*A*, though unsure if I'll get it. Its difficult to predict with maths because you could get >90% overall but the A* depends on 2 exams. I would perhaps consider taking a gap year if I got A*A*A* but I might ask for some feedback from them first, see whether its likely I would get an offer. St Andrews seems like a cool place, I'm visiting in a few weeks.
Not OP, but:
It's quite common among fatasfatasses who don't/can't clean themselves properly.
Lack of circulation+damp skin+dirt+horrible immune system+... There's no end to it.
Yes. Sorry. I am multitasking.
She's not my usual type of patient, I mostly deal in surgeries and quick fix ups. Also physical therapy and aftercare.
I dated a girl like that in college and she turned out to just be Bi-Polar/Manic Depressed. So that's honestly my guess. If I'm wrong I'm sorry. One anon was right when he said I'd likely fix the hand and send her off with pain meds.
The last one, it's that idealogy. I don't believe anyone, no matter how many crimes they commit, should be without medical care.
I had a day job.
I work in a state that starts with an I and ends with an S.
People find me through word of mouth. Just ask where to contact "Doc".
Lack of hygiene, personal care, and the constant scraping of wet, sweaty, chaffed fat flesh against fat flesh. It's a bacterial fucking gold mine.
Yes. I have.
They are burned. Or given to the client for funeral arrangements.
I have attended the funeral of every person who has died under my care.
Not just anyone can do this anon, it takes an iron stomach, a willpower to not to wrong, and the ability to love and care for even the most horrible of person. You take on a bit of that person's suffering every time they come to see you.
If you can't handle the pain of being shot or terminally ill yourself, you can't handle the pain of helping those who are themselves, ill or injured.
Maybe. If there's one thing I've discovered about Cambridge is because most students don't dare apply in case they 'waste that precious UCAS slot' and so they can afford to look at every candidate with a fresh view and a lot of detail.
Best of luck anyway!
Bipolar II to be exact. But good enough.
IRL in a hospital she probably would have gone directly to the psych ward.
Dude, that isn't even the worst kind of shit.
Try the burn center. Especially the idiots who postpone treatment.
It's where you go to lose faith.
Fuck it, I'm in a position where I can't go to a doctor. I've been sick for well over a month.
Headaches, nausea, severe back pain, constipation, on and off fever, occasional sinus issues.
What's up? Any advice?
If the intense chem-pumped air didn't already singe off your nostril hair, the overpowering smell of the patients pre-surgery will.
There is a reason it's one of the places the psychs are most active.
For the same reason they thought it was a good idea to play with gasoline and fire crackers. People are idiots and don't understand the severity of an injury until it starts to change color and stink.
Dude, I'm loving these!
a bit jealous of your amenities and the money, but other than that you guys seem to stick together a lot and not socialise in other colleges as much. we have a swap with your girls on sunday though
greens are alright man, flawed policies but well-meaning, at least you're not amelia horgan
did you loose your medical license
Sorry I'm slow guys, dealing with some things today.
I'll try to post some more Greentext.

1500 total for an amputation an prosthetic?
Unless you made the leg yourself and you used liquor for anesthetic and a shoelace for stitching , you'd be negative 5Gs ... and that's at wholesale
I call bullshit
I work at a medical office
I'd rather their extreme left policies if it meant getting things right instead of being stuck with centre-left/centre-right same difference bullshit. Anyway, Im out. Nice talking to you.
And now you know why I do what I do.
Quite a few sir, quite a few.
I also get a lot of supplies from military supply people.
I can try to come do threads once in a while.
An apprentice? I've never even thought about it.
As far as money. Gambling.
An amputation isn't that difficult, dude. It's just taxing as fuck.
And cheap prosthetics aren't either.
The only real challenge is post-op.
But pumping a patient full of antibiotics and get him to be careful do the trick.
This is not me.
Sounds like influenza. Did you get your flu shot this year?
I worked at a medical transcription job. Jackass.
And he's right, I don't have the van anymore. I bought an old building from a guy whose dad died. It's heated and does well enough. Plus it has a basement for storage.
As much as I hate Cracked they would love this and would proabaly pay you quite a bit. I remember how big the '5 things you didn't know about smuggling weed'. They love the whole 'insider' sort of a criminal type stories.
Had you kept any contacts from your time in med school? If so - how many of them know about your profession? Would you trust any of them enough to let them know or possibly assist in obtaining supplies?
>any other pedo/rape related stories?
Never change /b/, please never change
I am also interested.
No, that was years ago. I have some contacts from back when I was in the military though. And that's where I score a lot of my generics.
Tricare moms love to get put on drugs.
I reported nothing. I just performed an underage abortion. What the fuck are you thinking reporting it?
>The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.

I hope for your sake this is some brilliant fiction.
Majoring in Digital Cinematography, even though I know it won't happen. I'd love to shoot a documentary about the people like you. Im sure you're not the only one. Still assuming your not bullshitting
i r8 8/8. This is almost as good as that dude from the Vatican.
It's bad enough with eating disorder patients.
>"I'm fine as long as I can get into the kitchen."
>desperately trying to keep a neutral expression and not be sarcastic
I swear. Some of them are asking for it.
Just because you never left you never left your basement doesn't mean everyone else hasn't.
I've worked at a nursing home, no qualifications,
I've held peoples hands while they died,
I've seen pee and poo in every single state and have had to clean it up afterwards,
I've been sexually harassed by multiple ladies over 80,
I've been beaten, seen people bleed from their own stupidity
I've seen infected bed soars and rotting feet,
I've lubricated a prolapsed anus, like 6 inches long, as wide as a bottle.
Some of the stuff OP did was a lot worse, however all of this I experienced above board before I was 20.
Sorta. It's basically hyper-bipolar, where the cycles are faster and often more intense. (Which I tried to hint with the timeline.)
If you read through it (anything Cluster B, really), you'll be thinking to yourself "I know this bitch!"
I'll post a bad one.

Did anything I said have anything to do with you?
You are a faggot.
Okay, now since I'm probably nowhere near you I can't come do it myself. And you likely don't have the materials, so I would go to a Walk-In Low-Income clinic.
What will happen is they will prep the area with Lidocaine or another local anesthetic to numb it before removing the entire nail. They will then use acid to burn the root so it won't grow back in.
You will be given Amoxicillin and a decent painkiller.
It's an outpatient. If you want to do it yourself you need to get a hold of some local anesthetic, a scalpel, and some Fish-Mox (You can get it from the pet section, it's the same as normal ammoxicillan)
It'll hurt like a bitch though, I'd just go to a welfare style walk in clinic.
Still, bad infection kid.
the whole point of him doing this is so he didn't have to go to the police with this shit. it's not his job to arrest these fuckers, just like it's not a pschologist's job to bring people to justice.
This guys question shoulda been immediately apparent... Like He said Emergency depts. see these people ALOT.. I don't have any medical training, but I got it... What convinced me that OP is a Lying fag is the whole story about the Pimp givin' him $500 for fixin' up "His girl". (Who is now scarred up and not worth the Pimps time.. Not to mention Niggers are worse than Jews with $$$..
What if this guy presented with redness extending above his ankle, paired with vomiting, confusion, tachycardia and hypotension?
What would your initial management be, your main differential and the pathognomonic clinical sign(s) associated with this condition?
(Also amoxicillin would be an inappropriate choice of antibiotic for the image you quoted)
here as well bro, had it on and off for the past 1.5 year, but too poor to visit a clinic (not even in the US, I just can't afford the yearly tax and thus if I went to a clinic they could give me a huge fine). get a little bit of dental floss, use some hydrogen peroxide or alcohol to disinfect the area and stick the dental floss in the very corner of your nail (as in: below it, but with a little bit sticking out so you can pull it out later). also, aloe vera does wonders - get the plant, then every morning cut part of one leaf off, but it across and dab the wet inner part on the sides of your toe, where it's growing in. relieves pain, kills bacteria and actually helps in fixing the whole problem.
I'm gonna have to call bullshit on this. I've had much worse infections and ingrown toenails (due to the way my toes formed when I was born). To the anon who posted that picture, go to a podiatrist. I can confirm that (no offense Dr. Anon) that they'll handle it much better than a general MD. They're trained specifically for things related to the feet and they'll get it nice and fixed up for you. You don't need to lose the whole nail, just the corners that are digging in temporarily to the side of your toe.
>tfw i'll probably just end up leaving it alone for another few months until it becomes an extremely painful and unignorable abomination
Something wrong here. You never stitch up an abscess on a pannus, nor would you ever do this to necrotic tissue of any kind. You leave it open, pack it, and let it heal by granulating. Immediate skin grafting (which would require suturing) also is the wrong management.
I'm a surgeon in Chicago. 4/5 years in residency.
Btw I'm currently on trauma, gunshots and stabbing are kinda common in case you haven't heard. Makes for good stories
refer to >>596612894
it probably won't completely heal it (the longest I had no pain at all was ~2 months, then I kicked a wall hard while drunk and it came back), but it can really relieve the pain and keep it under control until you can afford treatment
doc i'd like to write your life story. i'm a fairly successful writer. i'm not sure how to contact you nor whether it would be a good idea through the shit storm of /b
but i want to do it. it sounds pretty inspiring.
Guy you responded to but I keep the nail in check by trimming it back so it only has the part that is infected and I wash it out daily but I do need to get ahold of some alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. I'll eventually go to a free clinic but with my job I can't afford to be off my feet for an extended period of time.
Ha! Clandestine genetics fag here. I use fish antibiotics for a selectable marker, it's the only good way to get them without a pharmacy. This is something few people would know or think to look up until they actually encountered the need for it. Have a little more faith in the stories now.
Tips on sourcing weird materials beyond the obvious "look for other places it's used?" I need different things, but maybe you have some general advice. I have to synthesize a lot of shit because lab supply places won't sell to some guy in an apartment.
>2 years ago mother had a nervous breakdown after losing her house

I'm coming out of it now, regular sleep schedule, not spending an entire day in bed. But I know I'm susceptible to them, and want to be able to keep myself on track when I feel it coming on.
I'm probably not going to drunkenly kick a wall anytime soon.
>trimming it back so it only has the part that is infected
tbh I have no idea what you mean by that, but don't, DON'T excessively trim it
when you do trim it, make it so the nail forms a straight line (it's cut in a very wrong manner on the photo posted, trimming it like that causes more tension to the sides of the toe, effectively worsening the condition)
It's very common in hospitals. If he is for real, he worked in a hospital or was at least trained as if he would be.
Manic patients are very easy to detect. The fact he didn't guess it after I told him it got worse with SSRIs makes his story questionable.
>let nails grow past toes
>grew up on the basis that this was the most disgusting thing you could let happen
WHAT ELSE IS A FUCKING LIE
give me a rest lel
twice it came back by itself without any embarrassing events happening, but it can still be quickly brought under control with proper hygiene
it's at its best when it's summer, since access to fresh air does wonders - had no problems at all because I could just walk around in sandals most of the time
Not a lie, just regretting that particular treatment.
While I admire you eagerness, you have to be more specific than "weird materials"
And there are plenty of places to obtain components, anon.
No. I don't rape my clients.
You would benefit from anti-depressants. I'd recommend Lexapro, it's not as habit forming as Xanax and is a lot simpler to ease into. If you happen to get the rare side effect of erectile dysfunction? Supplement with Welbutrin XL. Take the Lexapro once in the morning with a Welbutrin, and one more Welbutrin midday. You can take them with or without food but do it the same every time so it's absorbed into the body the same way each dose.
It's hard to explain but I'll try, basically you have the sides of the toe nail that are infected and you have the very front edge of it (I don't know basically the end of the toe nail not the sides) and I tend to trim it as in pic to but trying to trim the nail that is dug into the side to relieve pressure and wash out the infection as best as possible. I know I need the actual nail removed (I've had multiple infections due to how my toes form) right now I'm just keeping it in check so my nail or some shit doesn't grow out through the skin.
Holy shit wat. All !y fingers look like then PIC on the right. Its not infected but the nail is very round and the skin on the top corners is pretty hard. Wat do?
Not op, but are you retarded? Ingrown toenails lead to infection pretty easily, and while normally isolated, if left unchecked can get into the bloodstream and/or bone (according to my podiatrist). I have MRSA right now thanks to my ingrown toenail.
never heard of an ingrown fingernail, a lot of people have hardened skin there (in my case it might be because of biting the skin off), unless it hurts or something I doubt you should worry
You mentioned potassium cyanide, I need cyanides all the time for reactions but the only route I know of that I can do is to produce HCn gas and then push it through a column of KOH and water, and I don't have a good fume hood.
Maybe I'll scale this back a bit. What are the absolutely essential drugs and by what means do you get them? I'm not interested in narcotics, just sourcing things that are otherwise at least loosely controlled.
I know that you fucking troglodyte.
Most other peoples seem rounder but mine seem to be way rounder probably because I don't cut them properly and I don't know if it will fuck them up in the long run.
I actually need to go. But I can spare one more because the response has been nice.
>A man comes into my warehouse
>He's completely dead-eyed. Dressed like a normal guy. But just...you can tell somethings wrong.
>"Do you need something, sir?"
>"I think I'm sick. Doc."
>"Alright, well, come in here and let's get you checked out."
>"I was at a party a few weeks ago and I think I might have caught something."
>"And you bring this to me why? You should be able to get this sort of thing at a clinic."
>"My fathers a preacher so...."
>Take some blood samples, also check out his complaints, rectal tearing, raw penis, etc.
>Patient had gone to a party at a fetish dungeon and been involved in a group sex event.
>Give him some pain medication, and some ointment to ease the pain and risk of infection, tell him I'll call him with the results.
>Holy shit, this guy is HIV as fuck.
>Call him on throw-away and tell him to come see me.
>He shows up.
>"I'm not going to mince words sir, you're HIV Positive."
>"Oh thank God, I was so worried I wasn't.
>"....Excuse me? You realize how horrible news this is?"
>"Oh no, it was a breeding party. I wanted to."
And that's it for today. And that's how I learned about bug chasing and gifting. Good night /b/.
>Lexapro + Welbutrin
Er... I think he'll be fine with St John's Wort for now, OP.
300mg for 4 weeks, upping by 300mg if need be until 900mg. (Check examine.com for hyperflorin-content)
And if he shows signs of mania, head to the nearest psych.
Go see an expert. That's what they are there for.
Because the tests he does are purposely not open to anyone but doctors/psychologists, so nobody can cheat.
Not to mention experience and the endless neurological tests he can run.
Hell, even a psychotherapist could diagnose this shit easily. It isn't that hard.
Worst case is that they fail the differential diagnosis, which will become apparent withing 1 month of therapy tops.
Just don't go to a shit doctor.
Also stay the fuck away from psychoanalysts. They will screw you up for life and take all your money.
(Generally learn the difference of the words psychiatrist, psychologist, psychotherapist and psychoanalyst. Most anons fail right there.)
>You would benefit from anti-depressants. I'd recommend Lexapro, it's not as habit forming as Xanax and is a lot simpler to ease into
I thought xanax was for anxiety though. Your anon patient made no mention of any type of anxiety, so why give him a benzodiazepine?
>Because the tests he does are purposely not open to anyone but doctors/psychologists, so nobody can cheat.
Yeah, I got really surprised how tight this is. I tried numerous times to get some of these books and tests and guess what? Fucking impossible. Shit, it's easier to get us state secrets than this shit.
