"If you'd kept going, you'd have saved me the job" he said.

I wanted the world to swallow me up, my day was getting even worse.

What was going on?

"saved me the job"=he would not have needed to do the task? he would not have been terminated from his employment?

Is he a colleague of yours? friend? relative? stranger?

Is his profession relevant? yours?

First aid involved?

Is he a specialist in burns?

You stopped doing something? and this caused the problem that now needs surgery? but if you had kept going your injuries might have been less or none? (eg stopping while crossing the road might be injuriious to health!)

does the doctor specialise in something internal? or external? something to do with skin? something above the waist? below?

when you say you weren't injured or unwell, do you mean you had no problems at all? was it a check up on a previous problem? something to prevent future problems?

Has the fact this is groin related put people off? I'm sorry. It's nothing sordid though, so please continue with this.

HINT: It was bad, but at least I won't have to go through it again!

Just men?
Is it something that is commonly removed? (i.e. like appendix or tonsils)?

Hmmm... I believe I know what was removed... but not sure what activity that you discontinued could have 'saved him the job'...

Was he joking when he said that? (or) did he honestly believe that you could have saved him the job by continuing with that activity?
He was commenting on something he observed? pre-procedure? post-procedure? during the procedure?
He was responding to something you said?

Could you have still saved him the job by starting the activity again? Is it possible to have restarted the activity?
Would you have wanted to? Would you want to now?
Are you able to now?

Is it one activity done repeatedly? an activity done to a certain stage/point?
A recreational activity?
An activity relative to your profession?
Would you have had to repeatedly perform the activity in order to maintain the unnecessity of the procedure?

Is it relevant how much time had passed since you stopped performing the activity and the procedure?
If so: relevant because you could have only saved him the job by performing that activity at that age? time? in that place? relevant because the result of that activity which would make the procedure unnecessary diminishes with time? increases with time?

He was responding to something you said? no

Could you have still saved him the job by starting the activity again? not realistically Is it possible to have restarted the activity? not in the medical room, but in theory (although you wouldn't choose to anywhere, believe me)
Would you have wanted to? no Would you want to now? no
Are you able to now? no, I'm at work at the moment

Is it one activity done repeatedly? yope an activity done to a certain stage/point? if by 'an activity done to a certain stage/point' before the operation, then yes
A recreational activity? no
An activity relative to your profession? no
Would you have had to repeatedly perform the activity in order to maintain the unnecessity of the procedure? yes, again in theory

Is it relevant how much time had passed since you stopped performing the activity and the procedure? yes
If so: relevant because you could have only saved him the job by performing that activity at that age? no time? no in that place? place meaning geographical location? If so, no relevant because the result of that activity which would make the procedure unnecessary diminishes with time? it's more that the evidence of the activity diminishes increases with time? no

LOL and welcome to the club.. To quote an old joke I found it made a "Vas Deferens" to my life.

So had you been doing some activity that would have made you sterile in the long term? Is it anything to do with wearing tight pants (I assume that's a myth)? Was the activity cycling? other sport? Without getting graphic anything that involved wearing a box?

Shaving? YES, and that's a...

******SPOILER******

In preparation for my snip I'd been asked to shave myself thoroughly. I normally use an electric shaver on my face, but I decided to give myself a wet shave. I'm inexperience in my technique to say the least and made a right mess of myself (my wife describe it as a baboon's bum!).

The next day when I got to the clinic (having come straight from my Grandfather's funeral (what a day hey?!)) I sheepishly apologised for the mess I was in whilst pulling down my particulars and the doctor replied "If you'd kept going, you'd have saved me the job".

What a day!!!



Thanks for taking part everyone and I'm sorry if that was all a bit graphic, I did try to keep it pleasant.
