Well that's a shitty situation. Sorry OP
Bowel that sucks, I'm sorry to hear your chances with him are down the shitter. I doubt if you gave him your number he'd colon you later.
He's a nurse, and it's professional. Medical staff are used to so many bodily functions that this isn't something to be embarrassed about.
As I recall that nurse actually quit their job over it. I'm not saying people can't fall in love, but I don't want someone to get their hopes up. My job specifically states that if I were to enter into a relationship with someone I cared for within five years of their hospitalization I will be fired and could have my license reported.
As a student nurse, I can tell you that bowel movements are very important following surgery as the anesthesia slows down your bodily processes. Also, what's up with the whole male nurse / nurse dichotomy? We're nurses plan and simple. You don't call a women a female nurse just like I don't call them female engineers.
@Nymeria. Trust me. If the OP had not specified gender there would be a zillion comments along the lines of "Well she's probably straight so you wouldn't have a chance anyway" or "Is the OP is lesbian?" mixed with a bunch that would just say things like "You know the nurse could be male right?" "Male nurses do exist you know, she's not necessarily gay". If you want proof just go back and read through any FML where either the OP's gender is not specified or the OP did not specify the gender of the person they were trying to impress. You need to consider that we live in a world where people use phrases like "Manny" to refer to a male childcare giver rather than just calling them a Nanny which is what they are. Male nurses are lucky that the term "murse" is already used in regards to a "man purse" or they wouldn't be referred to as nurses at all.
Well, that's my point. People can ask those questions no matter what genders they are. The nurse in the story is a man, but then people could ask, "What if he's gay?" Just because people could ask and make dumb comments it doesn't mean that the genders make the FML any different than it is.
