After six days of pacing the  Cardio Clear 7 Review  coronary care unit, surgery went ahead. "I didn't feel too scared at this point. I trusted the surgeon and tried not to think about the fact they were going to take a chainsaw to my chest! I was operated on at the Mount Hospital so I reckon I had the best surgeon and the best care that I could have wished for. "Afterwards, I woke up and this voice in my ear says: 'I'm very sorry, Duncan, but we're going to have to put you to sleep again.' Apparently I was bleeding into my lung. When I woke up the second time, I had tubes coming out of everywhere... that was probably the worst part." Being on the other side of the medical equation and relinquishing control can be notoriously difficult for doctors but Dr. Duncan says he was the exception to the rule. He recalls that this was because the nurses were so gentle, caring and full of common sense, and because his surgeon was so good. "The surgeon I had was technically brilliant, but unlike a lot of other surgeons, he was also very empathetic. At one point, he puts his hand on my shoulder and said 'mate, we'll look after you' and that was so simple but so necessary, so helpful." Such a lesson in the impact of empathy has had a profound impact on Dr. Duncan and he feels grateful that he may understand people's suffering more now. "As a doctor, you think you understand pain and suffering because you've seen a lot of it but, until you've actually experienced profound illness and how isolating it is, it is impossible to completely understand. I think once you do, there is a magical way to look at someone and just simply say 'I understand' and they know that you do."
