General Surgery is tough but very rewarding. The culture surrounding Gen surg is aggressive for a reason since life and death situations are prevalent in Gen surg. If you do not like that atmosphere and sense of burden, try something else, but I advise you to stick with it you're a resident or PA, if you're a student shadow/rotate and see if you'll like it. Just know that the real life gen surg is going to be similar to your experience shadowing/rotating/volunteering in the gen surg but exponentially exaggerated.
