Anyway moving forward from that point...Since it has been over 5 years since your last physical the doctor should be thorough. Bare in my mind every doctor has a different method of conducting a physical exam. As I have learned from several posts "One size does not fit all". There are exceptions to every rule. I am sharing my personal experience.
Shortly after arrival I am ushered into an exam room by a med tech or nurse. I am then instructed by this person to undress to my underwear. I am weighed and sometimes my height is recorded. The attending person takes my blood pressure, pulse, temperature and respiration. The attending person advises me my doctor should arrive shortly and then exits.
The doctor arrives asks a few questions about how I am feeling, any changes in life or health concerns I may have. She then looks at my file on her tablet to review my lab tests I have about a week before the appointment. The tests include blood work and a urinalysis.
Then the exam itself. Head to toe. Head, eyes, ears, nose and throat. She feels the glands in my neck and thyroid with a stethoscope. She then listens to my chest and heart with the stethoscope. Then she listens for breathing through my back. She has me breathe in and breathe out several times while she moves the stethoscope to my kidney region. She then percusses my back.
I am then instructed to lie on my back on the table. She listens to my heart and chest again in the supine position. Then she listens to my abdominal region after being instructed to place my hands behind my head. She then checks my underarms and proceeds with a breast exam ( guys get breast cancer too ). She then percusses my entire torso, then feels all four quadrants of my abdomen and lifts the waistband of my underwear to listen and palpate my femoral pulses. She checks my knees and shins in both legs, lifting each leg and bending each knee. Then my feet and ankles are checked. Due to a running injury and subsequent surgeries my left ankle gets a little more of a detailed inspection.
She then asks me to sit back up. I have my range of motion in my shoulders, arms and legs checked. My doctor is aware that my career can put stress on my body so ( In My Opinion ) this check of my musculoskeletal strength and range of motion tests are important. She then checks my reflexes in my arms, knees and ankles.
I am then asked to stand up and step to the center of the room. She asks my to raise my arms to shoulder length then feels my shoulder muscles again as well as both my hands and fingers. I am then instructed to raise my arms above my head then to bend over and touch my toes. My spine and lower back are checked for discomfort etc.
I am instructed to return to the standing position and remove my boxer briefs, place my hands behind my head with my legs slightly apart. Then comes that moment of truth that most guys don't really like. She then examines my penis, shaft, scrotum and checks me for testicular cancer as well as a hernia check ( " Turn your head and cough" x2 ). Then I am instructed to turn around and lean over the exam table for a prostate exam. A lubricated gloved finger is inserted into my rectum and twisted around a little. A little uncomfortable but prostate cancer is worse.
I then slip my underwear back on. My doctor briefly discusses any findings ( I am healthy and fit. No surprises yet ). My doctor leaves but I stay for an EGG. The test results of the ECG are then reviewed by the doctor. That's it. Another year done.
