    Need advice for what to do when difficult child (male) refuses to have his genitals examed by the doctor. He will practically attack the doctor and refuse to let them examine him. He is very private and will not even let me see him getting in the shower etc. He had a physical today in order to go to camp and no amount of coercing or bribing works.

    I am having the same issue but in our case it's the touch avoidance issue as well as PTSD from sexual abuse. At their last physical (Aug 2010), I was told that difficult child 1 has a non-descending testicle. If it didn't descend on it's own in a year or two, like as in NOW, he would need surgery to remove it so he doesn't end up with cancer. difficult child 1 flat out refuses to even GO to the doctor for another physical. He HATES being touched THAT MUCH. Sorry I'm not helping but wanted you to know you are not alone. Heaven help us if difficult child 1 gets sick and NEEDS to go to the doctor.
