___amandaisabel Thank you Papi for appreciating my hard work and even though it's just my first step it's still a great accomplishment in life .... Not only receiving my first degree but also giving me the chance to grow as an individual, understanding patience, and believing in myself ... I have my own little journey in life and if it wasn't for my struggles and my dedication I would never understand what it's all about.. Know that this is just one step ... I promise to give it my all to continue and finish what I need to do to get to where I want to be ! Even though I didn't walk this time, there will still be two more times. You will see me walk 2 more times, I promise you that ! I love you. #daddy #graduate #biology #premed #science #classof2015 #love #family #iwillnevergetridofthisteddybear #graduation #futurePA #futurephysician #medicine #goals #success 4h

  •   chris_no_topher Can you explain first assist? Everyone I ask tells me something different 4h
  •   aixti_13 How was it? :) I am starting rotations in August- and I am literally freaking out!!! 3h
  •   prettyphysicianassistant @chris_no_topher it really depends on the surgery and how comfortable the surgeon is with you. Most residents and some experienced who are first assist help perform the surgery. It also depends on the surgery so because ours was so small, I mostly held retractors and sutured 2h
  •   prettyphysicianassistant @aixti_13 it's cool!!!! Don't freak out you'll be fine!!! 2h

secondcareerpa Always. I woke up this morning with a surprising sense of peace. I've been anxious and frantic for weeks now. Everything I've been working my butt off for culminates in today. My last exam for my last prerequisite class. However, I finally have a sense of peace and satisfaction in knowing I have done everything I could do. I MORE than worked my butt off. Today, what will be, will be. And then I will have three months to recharge my soul before starting the next beginning in my journey. Cheers to the freakin' weekend! #biochem #biochemistry #prepa #prephysicianassistant #paschool #paschoolproblems #futurepa #workhardplayharder #aspiretoinspirebeforeyouexpire 14h

nourished_and_well Breakfast included creamy cinnamon flavored peanut butter with banana slices on 45 calorie whole wheat bread. I also made it a point to jump on the treadmill for a quick walk with lots of incline while reading a little of this inspiring book. I thought it was so cool that I too was also on an exercise machine dreaming of PA school. This book is very motivating. #breakfast #workout #exercise #gymlife #dreadmill #steps #polar #fitbit #fitfam #fitgirl #fit #fitness #fit4life #fitspro #fitchicks #fitspiration #nutrition #wellness #weightloss #beachbody #goaldigger #pa #futurepa #futurephysicianassistant #healthy #healthyhabits #healthychoices 14h

prettyphysicianassistant This week I'm working with trauma surgery, so we got called into all the trauma codes in the ER, and today I saw a #degloving injury! This isn't my patient, but a similar injury. Degloving injuries occur due to shearing forces on the skin surface. My patient was in an MVC which flipped, and this is pretty much what happened when he put his arm out to catch himself. #trauma #traumajunkie #traumasurgery #ortho #vascular #physicianassistant #pa #pastudent #physicianassistantstudent #drugs #futurePA #pathology #medical #medicine #healthcare #pance #panre #nysspa #aapa #rpac #pas #paschool #whitecoat #clinicalyear #rotations #np #nursepractitioner #MEDspiration #smartgirlsarepretty 1d

ilivingston25 My body will never look the same after a liver/bilateral lung/kidney transplant, all done about 8 years apart, beginning at 13 years. Port-A-Cath, central lines, pic-lines, plus a fistula for dialysis in my left arm that pretty much ruined that as well. But I'm still here, and I'm still smiling. There's still so much to see. Never give up, life is a beautiful thing. Fun Fact: I have 3 kidneys. When UCLA does a kidney transplant they just shove one into your RLQ. #ScarsHaveBetterStories #LiverDoubleLungKidneyTransplant #UCLA #FirstAndOnly #MillionDollarMan #CF #DontNeedNoTattoos #KeepSmiling #NeverGiveUp #FuturePA #65Roses 1d

medicalboardreview Answer is C. Colorectal cancer is slow growing, and symptoms often appear late in the disease. Signs and symptoms include: abdominal pain, change in bowel habits, occult bleeding, and intestinal obstruction.
Risk factors: older age, genetic predisposition (FNP, HNCCP), smoking, race, and diet (high in red meat, low in fiber).
The majority of primary cancers in the colon are adenocarcinomas. The liver is the most common site of metastasis.
The only curative treatment is surgical resection of the malignant lesion along with the associated lymph nodes.
