I am a very discreet person, and I normally would never ever discuss this subject in person BUT! I knew that this is a funny story that us Spina Bifida moms can appreciate and laugh about. So please forgive me but I wanted to share a funny experience that happened yesterday following one of Carson's surgeries which we called a "glorified" circumcision.
Dr. Koh is Carson's urologist. He is a young man, probably in his late twenties. Following Carson's surgery he came out to consult with us regarding the surgery. He told us, "The surgery was successful, we repaired the hidden pe.." then he started choking, he tried to stop but had to excuse himself down the hall. A minute later he came back, and began again, this time talking a little bit about the bladder wall then he started to say, "We repaired the hidden pe.." and started choking again, excusing himself down the hall again. Came back and once again started choking at pe... This happened about 2 more times. While we still standing in the hallway one of the nurses came out and asked us if we needed anything, to which we replied that we were talking with Dr. Koh but he's getting a drink of water. She then stated, "Oh, he does that all the time when he talks about this subject." We all laughed and upon Dr. Koh's return, my husband stated the words (that he couldn't say) for him, and we had a very nice finish to our consult.
Doctors can be very intimidating at times, but there are these times too when we can remember their just like us.
