What the? Soviet Surgeon removes his own Appendix!
I worked without gloves. It was hard to see. The mirror helps, but it also hinders — after all, it's showing things backwards. I work mainly by touch. The bleeding is quite heavy, but I take my time — I try to work surely. At the worst moment of removing the appendix I flagged: my heart seized up and noticeably slowed; my hands felt like rubber.
