I was told to pull my pants down and sit on the edge of the examining table. Then they drape you with a paper sheet for modesty, what there is left of by this time. Then they took Little Mac out thru a hole in the paper. He had a very pretty nurse helping which made it that much more degrading.
By this time all you want is it to be over. The procedure itself was only about
20-30 seconds. It was not painful at all. Then they removed the scope and you cleaned up.
With all that we have gone through in the past months and years in dealing with our PCa, this is just another one of those unpleasant exams.
Modesty is a thing of the past.
As I said, the good news is it is quick!
