A Poor Bedside Manner

This afternoon I began to experience another physical issue. It was the second problem in a week and has me irked because I am not old enough to be breaking down like this, or so it seems it should be.

The short version is that I thought that I had a kidney stone and was in a bit of discomfort. I played it safe and visited the doctor only to find out that my blood and urine tests show no sign of a stone or infection.

My BIL the doctor thinks that I may have some kind of prostate infection. I am not old enough for this crap. Bleah.

The best part of this experience was when I asked the doc about my test results and he said that my kidney’s were showing a small irregularity, but that we wouldn’t know if it was kidney disease without more tests.

I considered punching him in the nose so that he could appreciate my telling him that without an X-ray we would not know if it was broken.

    Guess that it is time to clean the hot tub out and refill it.

    You have to be on antibiotics for about a month for prostatis. Soaking in the tub helps too. There’s one other thing that tends to relieve the pain, but I’m much too much of a gentleman to type that here.

    I love coffee, hopefully this is some little blip and no big deal.

    I started having prostatitis when I was 26 years old. I spent a lot of my time going to my family physician, going through 7 day rounds of Cipro.

    It never worked. I finally broke down and went to a urologist about two years ago… and found out some wonderful ways to eliminate that particular problem.

    I went on a six week regime of doxycycline, seven days of antibitiotics (even strong ones) is not enough to get the prostate infection taken care of…

    And, I do not know your personal habits, but… uhmmmm, it does no good if you do not eliminate the coffee… as sad as that sounds…

    I love coffee… and from time to time go on coffee binges. But when I do, it is back to the old ways…

    And usually involves the doxycycline round… and the dreaded exam… ESPECIALLY if it involves the prostate massage… I left that thing feeling a whole lot less of a man!

    Good luck!
