NYMed...Holy Moly!

Have you all seen the new show NY Med on ABC? I happened to see some previews for it and remembered to set it up to record on DVR. I watched it last night and it is REALLY cool, and SO fascinating.

There isn't really anything gory or "gross" about it like lots of the medical shows (so if you're squeamish you don't have to worry), but I find it fascinating to watch the doctors deal with different ailments and obstacles.

In the episode this week, the coolest thing that I saw was surgeons operate on a younger woman who had a brain tumor in her head. They did surgery and she had to be AWAKE throughout it to make sure that she didn't lose motor or speech function (here's where my inner speech nerd comes out). I can't even imagine having to go into surgery and be AWAKE while people poked around in my brain! It was absolutely fascinating. She came out of the surgery fine and appeared to be doing well 6 months later.

There are obviously other stories that don't have as happy of an ending. I teared up a few times during the show. I'm a big sap, but the stories are touching. Not all of the stories are super serious (one guy had an erection for 12+ hours after taking Cialis lol)

You also get a small glimpse into some of the doctors' and nurses' lives. The reality tv nut in me loves it :)

Oh, and did I mention that Dr. Oz even does some surgeries in the series? Love me some Dr. Oz!

I think I'll be checking it out again next week. Not only is it interesting, but it also kind of gives you a kick in the pants to really appreciate what you've got right now. And we can all use that reminder from time to time.

Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? And if not, did I convince you to check it out?

I'm gonna make MG watch it....try and get him hooked on some reality TV, muahahaha! :)

*Update: I made him watch the first segment until commercial and he really liked it!


  1. This is definitely a show I can get into! I'll have to find the first episode online and watch it!

  2. You've just convinced me to check it out!!

  3. I just watched the first two episodes and loved them! I watched Boston Med back in the day and since I used to live in NYC, I was pumped when they started this series! And I agree, the brain surgery was nuts!

    I am a new follower! Your blog is fantastic and refreshing!
