I am hoping people will respond to my musings.
I never thought that I a hot red blooded male would be shocked to see a beautiful female doctor walk into the office. I gulp and hope that she would not asked embrassing questions and certainly not want to examine me. But alass she did both. It wasnt quite as bad as I imagined - actually I didnt imagine anything - I never think about the next visit. She was very descrete - hands under paper sheets etc - not that I liked it but I guess as you get older and feebler you can expect to be treated with less and less respect - less and less.
I must admitt she was very through and has now decided I need added tests. She wanted me to again give my precious blood ; [do they know I once fainted]. I already had a fasting blood test for diabeties which ruined the whole morning. Actually I would rather be out riding my bike any day than doing this. I had to have a chest x-ray but put the gown on perfectly well actually Beth tied up the back.
I can hardly wait for my bone density and my stomach x-rays which come next.
I now have an Oncologist, as well as an Urologic Surgeon, who went to school together.
Doctors are looking so young these days but they are extremely kind and insist I ask any questions I can think of. But like everyone else I think of questions after I leave.
I was disappointed when the doctor said I would be on these hormones until 2010. Yes, they do make me feel a little tired and dizzy but all Beth's says is get use to it!
I'm getting used to it.
