Advice: Ask A Medic (Ep. 1) John "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" Mittle August 20, 2012 Advice, Ask A Medic 16 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: Ask A Medic is your semi-regular advice column where you can get advice about all those burning, stinging, tingling questions you are just too damn embarrassed to go to sick call for. The advice of the Doc is not to be used as a replacement for seeing an actual medical professional. “Doc Feelgood” is a former WWII medic that stormed the beaches of Normandy. He is one bad ass mother fucker. DEAR DOC: Can I get my girlfriend pregnant over Skype? We have been deployed six months and she is three months pregnant and that is the only way it makes sense to me? -CONCEIVED BY COMPUTER at FOB Altimur, Afghanistan DEAR CONCEIVED BY COMPUTER: Unless your wife has come in contact with some of your leftover sperm submitted during one of your pre-deployment porn marathons, hell no. My advice to you is don’t sign the damn birth certificate, …or arrange for her to fall down the stairs. DEAR DOC: I think I have athletes foot. My dad is an old school Marine and he said to pee on it. Is there any truth that this will cure athletes foot? -WHIZ QUIZ in Fort Huachuca, AZ DEAR WHIZ QUIZ: Oh the old piss on the foot trick, haha. Well I tell you what. Firstly no, it doesn’t work, but between you and me, tell your dad Doc says it only works if you also shit on your foot. The results should be quite interesting. DEAR DOC: Hey doc I have a problem, my left nut has swollen to the size of a grapefruit and really hurts. My command says that I am a malingering shitbag because I want to go to sick call and get it checked out. I have begun pissing blood and I can barely walk, but Top and the CO have threatened me with an Article 15 if I go, and say “all I need to do is suck it up.” Do you think I should go or am I just being a pussy? -BLUE BALLS in Fort Lewis, WA DEAR BLUE BALLS: Yeah you’re being a pussy, really your balls are the size of a grapefruit, and you’re complaining. Let me know when your little juevos get to be this big. With that being said I don’t think you have anything to complain about, so return to duty, drink some water, and drive on Soldier. ———– If you have a question for the Medic, ask yours by tweeting to @TheDuffelBlog or sending an email to email@example.com.

Pepe Tandazo says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM Water fix everything Peter Kirk says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM hey doc,,, how come my penis keeps falling off when I sneeze or fart? David Ehlers says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM For the swollen testicle he need antibiotics. Its more than likely Epididymitis. Christopher Gill says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM Danny I know you been writing to this blog. Joe Fritzinger says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM A little motrin and water will cure anything Timothy Jay Queen says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM He should drink water and take Motrin…..while wearing his PT belt! Mark Verrall says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM As a medic I agree Zdenko Buzz Muller says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM Doc Feelgood you ARE a badass. Click the “get to be this big” link. Robert P. Wills says: April 12, 2014 at 11:54 PM I knew I shouldn’t have clicked on the “get this big” link! Damn, damn, damn! DOC says: September 20, 2012 at 5:50 PM One thing you did miss though Doc Feelgood was to issue 800 mg motrin 3x daily and to double the water intake for each of these soldiers. Motrin cures all that ills you! DOC says: September 20, 2012 at 5:49 PM I vote for most real story on TDB. 24sFOBBuDum says: September 4, 2012 at 12:09 AM I can pin the pics to Pinterest!! How handy is that! Former Army Doc says: August 20, 2012 at 11:09 PM As a former Army medic, this had me rollin’. Reminded me of the good ol’ days of being attached to the grunts and tankers. runner1934 says: August 20, 2012 at 7:53 PM That first one got me rolling on the floor. We had a very similiar case when a soldier returned to our outfit after being in Korea for a year. He had gone on his 30 day leave and when he came back he was celebrating that he had his girlfriend knock up and that she was going to have a baby in two months!!!! My buddy took him into the latrine and explained the birds and bees to him. I won’t go into detail about all the nasty names he called her! He had a couple strips too and that, my friends, is REALLY scary.
