Hey Count, if you aren't a doc or working in a practice, you sure smooth over the wrinkles in visiting UR dr's office for an exam. Why dont you tell them the details of having a 4 ft. orthoscopic tube put up the urethra..and how far for what possible ailment? Why don't you help people find UR Dr's that will let Oxycontin or relaxants be used before any of this emotional and physical toil is quitupled by proceedures that are in some ways just a little bit north of the dark ages...i.e the rubber glove, the catheter, etc. You seem surprised that people go to such lengths to avoid seeing a dr. by their own cures, but isn't it that most UR Drs have little time or patience to tell the patient exactly what's in store, and curb their anxieties in the first place?View Thread
