My visit to 'the' Clinic
By Razaque Ahamat
This posting is something away from my garden as the weather is not conducive for that kind of activities, will soon get back as warm/hot weather is long over due-- 'Dream baby Dream'!!!
Recently my GP referred me to The Clinic!!! Let me rest your wandering minds at rest right away. It was not the STD Clinic anyway........ satisfied ????.
In the last few months I noticed that the front of my upper body was getting 'bigger'. In fact my BOOBS were getting bigger and painful!! The GP thought that it was prudent to get a scan done. So she referred me to The Breast Clinic.
Now my sublime friend, Mahen, you must be grinning away in view of our recent dialogue on my posting referring to my experiences in handling 'Udders'. in my early life!!!! You must be thinking that " what goes round comes round" & now it has come round to "bite my ASS"---- you will see if you are right!!!
At the Clinic I treated with utmost respect & great professionalism by all staff. The Consultant examined me before I went to be scanned. In the scanning room the Radiographer asked me to 'strip to the waist'. I asked her politely "DOWN to the waist or UP to the waist"??. She replied "We do not scan down there at this unit ,you know" Then she realised that I was a doctor and she said " I should have expected that from a doctor!!. We all had a good laugh and the scan was done in a few minutes. Then, I had to see the Consultant again and she reassured me that it was Gynaecomastia. . She went through my medications and the culprit was traced. This really allayed my anxieties, as earlier I was having visions of me raiding my wife, Farina's wardrobe looking for some 'material' "SUPPORT"!!!!!.
I left The Clinic and on the way out I felt that I needed to visit the toilet for a 'Number One' Went into the Hospital Visitors' Toilets--- 'top heavy & bottom heavy'----- "Bara-ta-Barae"!!! As I entered the toilets & walking towards the urinals, I saw this guy struggling with his fly down to get his "Gadget / Equipment" out. Of course my imagination was running riot, thinking "Is it THAT BIG" that he has difficulties or is it so small and "lost in the BUSH" that he is unable to find it??? By the time I finished my 'business", the guy had gone!!--- I shall never know the answer ---- I wonder if any of you can throw some light???
