But it's not, and so the embarrasment that people have, oh they're going do this, you know, dealing with my rear end and all this other stuff, I hear guys talking about that. But, when they see the actual operation that I went through then they understand that they go through your stomach and then they, oh, I thought you'd be sitting on donut or something like that for awhile.
