A catheter is usually not placed in the bladder in a healthy patient undergoing an elective procedure unless the procedure is 3 hours or longer.  Most gynecomastia procedures take between one and two hours.

damnit!! the nurse had me strip down I asked if I could keep underwear on she said no but I probably could of.


I bet I was stripped butt naked on that friggin table. Do you think I was? do they remove all garments or do they just expose the surgery area? I had to be clamped at the shoulders so they could turn me on my side.....

do you think I was exposed butt naked on the table for all the nurses to see? I really havent not got much to be proud off.......... but then again its not worse then going through highschool with breasts.....
