Try being a woman.
Try being a man!
No 'smart arse', but did it make your 'arse smart'?
Better to be at the caring end than the receiving end. Hope you are OK.
I don't know John, my last well woman exam, she probed both openings. of course I had just declined a colonoscopy. I'd much rather have a finger up you know where than undergo that!
Has to be endured - it will soon be over - I am sure you have said that to plenty of folk in the past.
And to the comments giving far to much information, I wish I had never popped back to have a read.
The way you lie is much more dignified for a man. We women lie on our backs, knees pulled up and widened and... well, you get the picture. xx
Yes...and what a lovely picture it is too Jo.
There is nothing dignified about having a rubber gloved finger stuck up ones arse.
You forgot to mention the clamps..... cold steel of course
Women just don't get what 'we men' have to go through!!lol
chuckle... giggle... poor thing
OUCH! no thank you! treat yourself to a scotch egg as a reward!
They dont do them in the hospital canteen
I hope you're OK John?
A routine check or is something up?
Of course not, that would be cheeky. X
Surely you're not expecting sympathy from the women on here are you!!! I mean really. I have to go back to my gynae YET AGAIN on Monday - I'm beginning to think he fancies me (yeah right).
You can not put that post in blog world and not expect a few cheeky comments !cheers, parsnip
Feel better soon. Pain in that area of things is so distracting! Treat yourself to something nice, perhaps not food oriented, you'll feel better.
Is that the scream I heard earlier? Woke up the chickens, the cat, car alarms went off, dogs were howling!! Oh, it was just John ;-) You OK now?
I am trying to be dignified
I can say with hand on heart that I have had every orifice examined during my 50 + years xx
it's not so much the poke, it's the lubricant!
My dad in his 80s went for a well man check , he had no idea ,. We never heard the last of it
I can cope with the exam. it's the small talk that gets me; "Are you going on holiday?" well I may be but not until you remove your forearm and that set of tools that you seem to have shoved where the sun doesn't shine! Hope you're ok John x
I wonder if the men have to endure the steel clamps
All i got was " here we go!
Just give us the facts, man. No need for the masculine coyness.
Id rather not if you dont mind
Mr. Gray played Finger Puppets with his Physician. Mr. Gray was the puppet.
No smart arse comments? So how, exactly, do you expect us to express our affection?
lets hope you dont have to endure that again in a hurry xo
Are you kidding?? You post that picture and give all a good laugh and then say "no smart ass" commentsWe gals usually stare at the ceiling and count to 100.
You have my sympathy. Been to too many intimate examinations to be anything but.
Much and all as I sympathise John, I'm sure that if men had annual mammograms there'd be a boob-shaped, body heat machine invented so fast it'd make your eyes water!!
no smart arse comments - - - is there any other kind?
Good for you for taking preventive care! It's amazing how many people who are no longer with us who probably wish they had done the same!!
A camera up there is most unpleasant
Kudos to Rodney Dangerfield: You know my doctor, Dr. BiddyBoomBah? My doctor is a very strange doctor, very strange.How strange? When I take off all my clothes, he says AhhhhhhBut seriously, my proctologist is the only doctor I see eye to eye withProctologist, now's there a job. You start at the bottom and stay there. My doctor told me I had 6 months to live. I said I want a 2nd opinion. He said OK, you're ugly, too. My doctor told me he had 3 cases of VD in his office last week. But, he's Ok now. TaaDum
I hope all turns out for the best, John. I can appreciate your feelings. After 20 years of supporting NHS complainants including 8 years in a medical negligence firm, I ignored my irritated gall bladder for three years until 4 days of excrutiating pain forced me to ask my husband to call the GP with a dictated note of my clinical history. The receptionist told hubby they didn't do home visits but once the doctor read my symptoms he came out after surgery and insisted I be taken straight to the hospital it had been my responsibility to monitor for 14 years. He seemed to find my reluctance to be admitted strange. I couldn't explain how terrified I was to be a patient. I went straight to the ward and for the entire eight days I was there, everyone was kindness itself (apart from a CT scanner operator who should be strung up for his lack of care) and I was incredibly impressed by the professional standards of all staff. I was also priviledged to witness in the bed opposite perhaps the best example of ward level complaint management I have ever seen. It doesn't mean that I'm no longer making every effort not to "bother" our medical colleagues but I hope any future care I receive will be just as good.
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
