Medical Records Request Making Barry Bonds Wish Heâ€™d Never Visited Doctor For Smalldongitis
Todayâ€™s news that Sen. George Mitchell has sought the medical records of several high-profile players as part of his investigation into steroids use in baseball has many players on edge. Most notably Giants slugger Barry Bonds, who has told friends he is worried the release of medical records will reveal to the public that he once visited a doctor for an ailment he calls â€œsmalldongitis.â€
â€œBarry never took any steroids. Never has and never will,â€ said his agent, Jeff Borris. â€œAnd his medical records will prove that. However, we do not want his medical records made public or seen by anyone. Itâ€™s an invasion of privacy. There is certain information in there that Barry does not want to get out. And I can understand why â€“ itâ€™s very embarrassing.â€
Bondsâ€™s former girlfriend, Kimberly Bell, confirms that the Giants star once sought medical help for smalldongitis.
â€œEver since Iâ€™ve known Barry he was afflicted with smalldongitis,â€ said Bell. â€œI think heâ€™s had it since birth. And thatâ€™s what I believe has always made him so surly. Sure, he is big and strong and talented and handsome and intelligent, but heâ€™s got a small dong. Heâ€™s got smalldongitis. And that has pecked away at him all his life like a tiny little dong poking away at a regular-sized vagina. In fact, Iâ€™m the one who suggested he go to the doctor for his smalldongitis.â€
San Francisco physician Dr. Emerson Wilson, while not the doctor who looked at Bondsâ€™ smalldongitis, says he has treated numerous men over the years with the condition.
â€œItâ€™s actually not called â€˜smalldongitis,â€™â€ said Dr. Wilson. â€œThatâ€™s just a kind of laymanâ€™s term for it. There is a very complex medical term for the condition, in fact â€“ itâ€™s called â€˜micropenis.â€™ And thatâ€™s probably what Mr. Bonds has. He has him a micropenis â€“ or, yes, smalldongitis, to stay away from confusing medical lingo. The biggest issue with smalldongitis, other than being unable to perform sexually, is the psychological issues the afflicted face. And the last thing someone like Bonds would want is the whole world to know they are a smalldongitis sufferer. As a doctor, I would suggest baseball reconsider seizing his medical records.â€
Bonds says this latest intrusion into his privacy is just another desperate attempt to discredit him.
â€œIâ€™m just a few home runs away from Hank Aaron now and people are trying to bring me down any way they can,â€ he said. â€œBut I will fight to keep my medical records private. Thereâ€™s nothing big in there, itâ€™s just not something I want to get out. And, really, itâ€™s nothing big. And I mean literally. Figuratively itâ€™s huge and would really embarrass me.â€
