If you ever think, gosh, I should have gone into the glamorous world of medicine, take heart! It’s not all “Grey’s Anatomy” and lollipops, people. Being a first year intern certainly wasn’t all that glamorous for Dr. Andy Kahn. In an exclusive clip from this week’s episode of “Untold Stories of the ER” (Fri. at 10:00 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health, then repeats Sat. at 9:00 p.m. on TLC), watch as Kahn gets stuck with a case none of his coworkers wanted — a wild-eyed, compulsive masturbator who won’t even take a break when medical professionals want to take his blood pressure.
The good news is that, though Kahn could have brushed the patient off as a psychiatric case, he relentlessly pursued a diagnosis and discovered a life-threatening condition that surprised everyone.
That’s not the only case of note in this week’s episode. When a hiker tells Dr. John Lucas that she”s been bitten by a rattlesnake, he”s skeptical. But he soon learns she”s right when her condition turns critical and he and his staff race against the clock to find enough anti-venom to save her life. What begins as an unexplained seizure in the maternity ward becomes a trial by fire for ER doctor Tad McReynolds who”s called to the scene to save the young mother”s life.
