Physical Exam Needed Health

  • View author's info Posted on Jan 22, 2008 at 01:28 PM

    The doctor in my clinic has left so I have to see another doctor. This doctor is a male doctor and gorgeous. I dont want him to have to do a physical on me. I am so embarrassed to have to go see him that I am thinking I wont. He is all nice to talk to but the thought of being naked and being poked and prodded makes me uneasy.
    I was in a auto accident years ago and I was 5'5" and weigh 260 and the doc put on the file severely morbidly obese and I am still hurt over it. My weight had nothing to do with a vehicle hitting me by running a read light.
    How do I deal with this?
    Anyone else going through the same thing.

    Surely you should be revelling in the notion that a gorgeous doctor is going to touch you!! Joking aside, obviously you realise that you will eventually have to go. My doctor is hot too, but medical urgencies come before anything else. He's seen and examined my breasts on numerous occasions and actually, you get used to it. I usually get smears done by the nurse but if he had to do it, it wouldn't bother me. I've had male doctors since I was a kid so maybe I'm a little more used to it. After the first time you'll be fine.

    Greetings Midnight,
    I understand how you are feeling, as I have been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. However, what you must realize is that this is just another category that plus sized women as well as men are put into. Yet another way to put someone into a "box". Do not put your health into jeopardy simply because you do not want this doctor doing the exam. He is after all a trained professional, and most certainly you are not the only person of size that he will have seen. Pull yourself together, gather your strength and wits about you and forget about that classification, as you are not what a medical note says. Be well.
