It has taken nine months for the humilation of the bend-over examination stand to wear off enough to be able to write about it and ask if anyone else has suffered the same indignity.
I encountered this device in the office of a colo-rectal surgeon. This is how it works.
You are instructed to kneel on a padded stool located on one end of padded table.
You are instructed to pull down your pants as you kneel
The attendant then lowers the table to waist/hip height.
You are instructed to bend over and lay your chest on table and wait for the doctor, because he'll be right in.
Can you picture that? Gosh, I hope not.
Has anyone else run across these sadistic devices? Am I just too squeamish, because I am still haunted by the experience.
