Better than if you are on your back and they start laughing when they remove the blanket.
The four times in the last year that I've had a heart cath. Even though they went in through my neck, the first thing they do is to flip off the blanket and shave my groin. Both sides! Next they slap a narrow led shield over my boys. I dare you to not be embarrassed , especially when the nurses are hot. Unfortunately, the room is kept at sub-arctic temperatures.

She asked him "Am I going to get a wallet card to carry with me that shows I've had half my colon removed?" He took the bait & said "No, why do you ask?" She said "Well, I figured if I showed the card all my future colonoscopies would be half price". He laughed but informed her that wouldn't be the case!
