Cover Up Here Comes The Men
June 4, 2007 5:57pm CST
Today I had an appointment for a pelvic and abdominal exam. With this type of exam you needed to consume three eight once glasses of water. On top of that I had to take the subway to my appointment where my boyfriend met me. We got there and had to wait again. Finally I was called. Of course my boyfriend sat in the waiting room knowing what was involved. Of course you are told to take everything off from the waist down and put on those ridiculous gowns. This one was paper and the cord they give you did not tie it up. I was basically hanging out in the back. Half-way through I had to use the facilities. I walk out and there is one guy. Coming back there's another guy. I was mortified. I basically ran past them and tried to cover up. I was just wondering why men were wondering around back there, while women were being poked and probed!

Yes, a valid point made...when you are in such a situation and people poke at you and stare at you, it becomes very embarassing. But what to do....you can just igonore them....because paying atttention to them....will not give you any solution.

Yes I agree with you this is done all the time and it's not what I call proper. Self pride and respect is like common sense it's no longer in exsistance. I was not happy the one time I was in the hospital and I flat out told the doctor the gowns gave a whole new meaning to I.C.U. and before I knew it I had a gown that fit me very well.
