So, I have never had surgery before, and it just dawned on me that I'll be naked during the surgery. Oh lord. 

They are about to have 400 lbs of jiggly fury on their table! lol

I know, they've seen it all, just makes me laugh a little thinking about it.

I had that same thought pre-op. It doesn't help that my surgeon and his assistant are both extremely handsome. Oh, well. I'm so thankful for my surgery now none of it matters!

Yes unfortunately modesty goes out the window at a hospital. Lol. But is for the best and they see it multiple times a day. It can make post op appointment a little strange but oh well thats why they do what they do.

I had the same thought and tried to make a joke of it by apologizing to the nurse anesthetist who was a hoot!  He told me only the part they were operating on would be exposed to the doctors. I don't know if it's true or not, but I felt better about it!  My doctors do 2 surgeons also and they're both total hotties!  Then he gave me a little ****tail and I didn't care what they did!  Poor guys.

and then I come out of surgery with a catheter so I know at least someone in that room was "down there".

They put sterile drapes over everything but the area where they are working.

My bladder froze up after surgery and after they had already taken the catheter out.  Had to be straight cath'd 3 times.  The first two times my male nurse got a female nurse to do it.  The last time he asked if he could do it and since he stood there the first two times and watched I told him to go ahead.  They are professionals and this stuff is what they deal with all day. I'm old enough that when I had babies OB/GYN's were usually males.

Naked and had a visit from dear old Aunt Flo (the witch). So whoever cath'd me really earned their paycheck that day.
