I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for this 57 yo junkyard. Anything would be appreciated, because, and I don’t admit this often, I’m scared! If you can fine some time and in your heart say a prayer for me, and believe me I’ll do the same for you someday. God Love you all jockmike

Mike , the short answer is no.

It hurts not to go.

Git your fanny in there and get it fixed!

Mike, it certainly won’t hurt after the pain goes away!

Depends on what the doctor does. I pass kidney stones, so I’m a little indifferent about any lesser pain. I once had a urologist stick a stint up my little fellow and it felt like he had inserted a telephone pole – kinda neat though and very impressive! LOL

It hurts worse not knowing and letting things go. Everyone I talk to that has been in your situation tell me they wish they had went much sooner, knowing what they know now. You are in my thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery.

Ditto the above – I imagine it’s nothing compared to what women go through at the doctor. The exam doesn’t hurt at all physically – though I didn’t particularly enjoy the camera. The months leading up to my appointment were excruciating – the appointment was a day a the beach by comparison. happy to find out I only had an infection, now long, long gone – not the big C.

Good luck.

Mike, best of luck. Sometimes we can make things worse for ourselves by thinking and worrying too much, but I know it is hard not to worry and think about what might happen. Make sure you make your concerns known to the medical staff. Good luck, I’ll be thinking of you.

Mike, I will pray for you and God will be with you to help you through it. I have a co-worker that went through the surgery and he is doing well. I didn’t ask him whether or not it hurt, but they have great pain meds these days. Scared or not you know that it is something you must check on. If there is anything else you need, let me know.
