Best and worst. I had an operation on my testicles, successfully. When ready to go home the doctor said I was ready to leave and asked the nurse to clean up my groin area first. The doc walked away and the nurse turned away saying, "not a chance in hell!" The best was when I went to my doc with a lump in my testicles. She pipped me on the table and had a visual examination. "It's just a lump, testes can be lumpy sometimes," I muttered I felt embaressed and foolish. She replied she would rather have me here feeling a fool than sat giving me the "conversation" and saying I should have come earlier.
My recent operation involved a well known locally kidney doctor that inserted a stent and an infusion port. Once I got to my room some female and male RN's wanted to see the condition of the staple job that I had all of the way down to almost my penis, so I showed them. Then a couple of days later I had butt burn and was offered help applying a past to relieve the burn. I declined the help. Day 4 I was offered a shower by a nursing assistant about 50 years younger than me. She looked like she was recently out of high school. I wanted to do the shower alone but the hospital is afraid of clients falling so she stood by me and off to the side while I showered. I was given disposable underwear and the aid insisted on helping me put them on as did another female RN at a previous time.
I had several male RN's and I asked them if female clients rejected his help. the guys said most women were OK with male nurses looking at sutures/staples and with personal care.

handy: "I had several male RN's and I asked them if female clients rejected his help. the guys said most women were OK with male nurses looking at sutures/staples and with personal care."
Because until relatively recently, it was very hard to find women doctors, even when it came to gynecological problems. To get birth control, to give birth, etc., most women have had to use male doctors. What they had to do was a lot more personal than most of the things that folks here have described female doctors/nurses having to do with men.
