Hello and welcome to WOAS!

I am a newly-wed wife of a surgeon. We have been together for nearly 3 years, and happily tied the knot this past spring.

I’ve started this blog as a space to share thoughts and the often odd on-goings in the life of a surgeon, and hence, my own! I’ve opted for anonymity to have both freedom and privacy. For reference, S = Surgeon (my husband) and WS = myself (ha!). All other names will likely be fabricated. That said, I don’t aim to fictionalize my experiences.

Thank you for stopping by and feel free to drop me a comment anytime!

  1. Hello :). My boyfriend is in his second year of residency. We’ve been dating a year and I’m starting to really feel the strain the residency will no doubt put on the relationship. I’m struggling and he is too. I’ve read so many of your posts but one call or email exchange would really help me. I’m really curious if this gets better? What’s it like once he’s a fellow or attending? I love this man and I’ll do anything to make it work. But I would like to know if I’m committing to a lifetime of this.
