I worked as a medical officer in Neurosurgery. My job included initial management of neurosurgical emergencies as well as care of the admitted patients. I used to attend morning and evening rounds and saw the patients in followup. One patient worth mentioning is a pregnant lady with SLE who presented in Emergency department with altered consciousness and convulsions and was diagnosed to have developed intracerebral hemorrhage. Although we managed her conservatively on steroids, it was rewarding to see her recovery.
