So I go for my bone density scan today and the skinny radiographer chick tells me to get undressed and gives me a gown to put on.
Well this gown would have fitted Ms Skinny Chick comfortably; no way was it fitting Mrs Chunky Rollercoaster! Getting it on was like being in a strait jacket. Seriously, she couldn’t see that I’m a bit on the fat side and would need a larger size gown?
I pull it on and wriggle like crazy until I can pull it down; it only went down so far by the way, probably to the top of my thighs. Then the next problem I have is getting from the changing room to the scanner room without anyone seeing me. I would have died for sure but luckily I darted across the hallway and made it without being seen.
I can’t believe the skinny scanner chick didn’t look at me and think WTF! Honestly I looked a right sight, but she just acted as if everything was normal and I looked fine. I guess they are trained not to “look” at people.
When I was laying on the scanner bed she was like “just breathe normally” and I’m thinking breathe normally, this gown is so tight I can barely suck a breath in! I must have looked like a purple sausage bursting at the seams.
After the scan, a quick look left and right and made it back across the hallway, great :mrgreen:. The final worry was getting the thing off again afterwards; you know how it is when something is really tight, trying to pull it off over your head is a nightmare. Well anyway, a bit of wriggling and I got it off and was soon back in my own clothes.
So all in all it was a bit of a traumatic experience. Next time remember: no underwire in my bra and no zips on my pants then I don’t have to get undressed and wear a gown!
Have a good day all!
