We discussed it, we not disgusted

I bet you colorectal surgeons’ children are allowed poopy talk at their dinner tables.

The rest of us, however, have been trained, scolded, reprimanded, etc. whenever the word poo is mentioned.

I see blogs of people embarrassed and ashamed to talk about their bowel movements.

Okay so maybe it’s not dinner table discussion. Maybe there is a time and place.

But there seems to be a great fear and embarrassment to talk about diarrhoea, constipation, etc.

The endoscopist I’m seeing won the Order of Canada – all because he made a career – and tremendous scientific and medical contributions – in an area no one likes to talk about.
