Or do other people hide their bra and panties under their clothes during the gyno visit? Seriously, think about it. I'm lying on a sheet of tissue paper, wearing a gown made out of my grandmothers old apron, with some guy about to get all up in my business - and I HIDE my bra and panties? What, he's going to see something he SHOULDN'T? Sheesh.
So I had my fun appointments today. I kind of like my doctor. He's the department chair, so he knows what he's doing. Everyone is very nice to me because I'm his patient and he doesn't have that many. AND they're very considerate of his schedule so there's no ridiculous waiting around, in and out in thirty minutes.
Did you catch that? Department Chair? Um, yeah, at a teaching hospital. So the DOWNSIDE is he sometimes brings STUDENTS. Today I had THREE breast exams! For the price of ONE! And had my cervix described in great detail! By THREE people! Fortunately, only Dr. C palpated my uterus and ovaries. So let's give a little thanks for small blessings.
Then on to the mammogram. Because three breast exams in one day are simply not enough. Just me and Barb this time, thank the sweet baby jesus. She kept assuring me "we" were doing just GREAT! I haven't been felt up that much since high school.
For this I took off half a day of work? If I'd planned ahead maybe I could have squeezed in a dental appointment too.
