Going for my 3rd class medical tommorow morning after my flight training is done in the am, and I must say I am a little nervous as I really do not like the idea of the doc looking at my rear end, as I looked at the form to see what it all consists of and that is one of the things on there that makes me very uncomfortable..:(.. Wish me luck and I will let everyone know how I make out.

Good luck man.

Hmm, when I got mine I had to get into a gown but I didn't have to bend over and touch my toes.

I don't think you'll have to worry about any "anal adventures" it'll all be good.

Don't stress it. My first class was actually easier than my 3rd class. I think once an AME gets to know you it's understood that they'll work with you and if you have a problem you'll be up front and honest about it with him/her. My 1st class all he did was BP, eyes, urine, looked in my ears nose and throat real quick and listened to my heart. You'll be fine.

:yeahthat:

I stayed fully dressed and the whole process took about 20 mins. Just make sure you can "go". I forgot about that part so I had to sit around for a bit drinking water until I could give them a sample. My AME has some cute girls working for him though, so I didnt mind much. ha

Yeah that "Going" thing is always the hardest part of the medical ha! This last time they informed me I could go as soon as I got there....so next time I'll be prepared!

Just make sure while that part of the exam is underway, that the doctor doesn't have both hands on your shoulders. :crazy: :sarcasm:

Just kidding.

You should be fine. Good luck to you and it will be over quick.

Best wishes. :rawk:

3rd class was a piece of cake..nothing crazy. NOW, if you're going for a DODMERB, then thats something to get nervous about. I had to get a DODMERB since I'm in ROTC and that includes the turn-your-head-and- cough along with the anal check.

Passed this medical and recived my cert, was just above where I needed to be for my eyes,you are all correct, was very easy and now it is up to my instructor (cut loose) for my solo which I am ready for as he said to me as I am ready to go but he won't tell me when since he dosen't want me to be nevous all week leading up to it since I train once or twice a week..Wanted to have family there when I did do this but he is right, better off just having him spring this on me and jump out of the plane than have me sh&*^% my pants all week waiting and knowing..Wish me luck in the next week...........:).........:D
