Why is it impossible to see video of female cystoscopy and ureteroscopy? There are lots of male videos but all the female videos have been removed for "inappropriate content" any where I try to find one...seriously? women are inappropriate but its ok to watch a male remove his ureteral stent himself at home? Can you tell me where I might be able to see a cystooscopy with RPG, ureteroscopy with lithotripsy and ureteral stent removal for female? I know it will reduce my anxiety if I can actually see what will happen. (forgive but I do not trust dr accts - especially since I wasn't told about stent and I can't get a straight answer about type of anesthesia being used)
I'm not sure as to why you can't seem to find videos about this. Have you tried Youtube? I have come accross several medical videos there.
While at an appointment for a urodynamics test was asked if there was any objection in getting the procedure video taped for students. I was told that my face would not appear in the video. Since only the pelvic region would be shown I did not object.
Several years later, I ended up needing emergency surgery to have my laft testicle removed. Since I was to sick to make any sense out of things, my wife signed the conscent forms. One thing that we did not realize at the time, is that this would also allow them to take photos during the surgery. Later on as I was going through an online search from this hospital I came accross a link about a orchiectomy and photos about the procedure. To my surprise, I was able to make out that the photos were about my surgery. The photos showed the scrotum prior to starting the surgery. Due to a surgery that I had a year prior to this one, I was able to recognize markings that were indicators that I was the patient. It is very unlikely that other people out of the same hospital would have these same markings. A birthmark was visable and also the way that an incision had been made previously would make it almost impossible to be someone else. It also was surgery on the left testicle which would be even more unlike to be on the same side.
Even though I could not give them conscent, picturse showed up on their medical teaching site. I still have the downloaded photos.
It is strange that things are so different, when it comes to nudity on TV programs and movies, females are shown completely nude not hiding their genitals. When it comes down to males, only things of European contents seem to show the penis of males. Being here in Canada, males are not shown from below the waist, if it is than he is shown from behind. In no way do I enjoy looking at males, however I find it odd that females are shown completely. All people will at one time in their lives have seen a real penis or a picture there off. Why is there this behaviour of treating this part of the male body as something to be covered up.
Give Youtube a try. there can be a lot of nonsense there but I have come accross some good medical videos.
