I don't really want to talk about this , however it has started to really get to me after all these years. I am a man so it seems that our society has a tough time accepting the fact that a man can be sexually abused, even more so that it was at the hands of a doctor. A doctor that I trusted to do what is right for me when it comes to my health. This is why it is so difficult of a thing to deal with. It was many years ago at a well known clinic that this happened. I went to see this doctor at the age of 16. I was really a naive young man. I had a problem with cloudy urine, not sure what was wrong. I figured maybe an infection of some kind. This doctor wanted to check my prostate to see if it was swollen and also wanted a sample of fluid from it. So not really knowing how this is done, I did as instructed. I was told to remove my clothes and a DRE would be performed then he would collect a sample of fluid by milking my prostate. I figured this would be a quick thing to do and wanted to get it over with. So during the DRE he began trying to get fluid from my Prostate. I really can't go into detail at this point, but it lasted a real long time and it involved some touching of my penis as well that was really unprofessional to say the least. I went home after and felt really violated and upset. I just wanted to forget it ever happened. Latter I heard on the new that my doctor had lost his license because of what he had done to other young men and their stories matched mine to a T. For years I have blocked it out but recently I realized that I can no longer go to male doctors when it comes to exams below the waist. I have tried to change most of my doctors to women because of this lack of trust that I have.I have reached out for help calling a hot line for abused people and they didn't take me seriously, so how do I get some counseling for this problem. I really shouldn't have to pay for it because I was a victim I think the clinic should pay for it, but it was so long ago that the limitations have long sinse expired. I didn't come forward because I felt creepy about it and I told myself it was no big deal. Well it is when you can't trust a doctor to see you and some times I cry about it. I am a 47 year old man that crys about something that happened so many years ago. What can I do now?
