    I got to watch one when I was doing my internship in laboratory medicine. It wasn't bad. It was pretty messed up because they found out that the guy actually choked to death on some corned beef hash and potatoes instead of Alzheimer's like they thought. That's been eons ago and I can still remember this dead man's face!

    I walked away impressed that surgeon's can actually know what the hell they are doing...it wasn't all nice and neat like in the anatomy books!

    I was surprised that this didn't upset me but watching a bone marrow on an elderly patient was much, much worse. I had to leave the room with that. I don't know what upset me so much about it.

    Oh man, that stinks for him. :/

    Hopefully I'll be able to witness them dissect the abdomen too. I won't be able to help, though.

    What was this for? And what do you do now (or what are you going to school for)?

    Today we dissected trout and squid. I am always part fascinated, part weirded out by dissections.

    I've tended corpses before (occasionally, if it was needed and the usual people weren't available whilest everyone else was like 'I'm not doing that!'), sealing lips/eyelids, Placing arms and legs, etc. Not the actual cleaning and dressing part though, that's always already done by the time I get close to a deceased person. But cutting into corpses, not really my thing. :P

It was awesome.

    Just wanted to brag a bit.
    I'm really jealous.

    There used to be a good dissection up on youtube that was in many parts, not sure if it's there any more.

    I really like seeing the guts of things. I wish I could open my self up and prod all the parts to see how they work and are arranged.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
