I have often been asked how a doctor’s life has changed since the war started.
Life for doctors changed back in 2014, when we first saw casualties from conflict in our country. We cared for the wounded and also learned how to treat chronic pain syndromes associated with traumatic injuries. We also saw the huge psychological impact on young men after the first years of war. We have learned how to manage all these problems and we hoped for better times!
But what happened on 24 February of 2022 will stay in our hearts for a very long time. You can ask what change our lives and practice has seen in the last few days? There are the answers:
And this is not an entire list of what we have learned. We, the Doctors of Ukraine, will try and save as many lives as we can, and do our work to the highest possible standard, despite the difficulties we face. We will do this with open hearts and compassion.
And we will do this, because caring for patients is our job. And, of course such beautiful children are born in the underground during war!
