Luci, glad to see you survived the proceedure with your sense of humor intact. I think it is too funny that you and Barry see the same doctor. Do you suppose he would offer a family discount? Or, is this an extension of the "family that plays together, stays together?"
As for planning to see the NV doctor again, I really don't know. It seems a stretch to think that you are going to continue flying back to NY to see the urologist on a regular basis. Glad to hear the testing is over and you are all right. Hugs, Lauri
Glad you got some answers. AND a new pill. Yea!! Whatever, right?
If you need a urologist in NV, find a new one!! Sounds like the former one had some problems or his staff did. Either one necessitates a new search. Good Luck.
Love and prayers,
Many Blessings for the New Year

Is this test the only "scope" a urologist would do? I am to go to Bismarck next week for kidney and bladder x-rays and a "scope" - that was all he called it. All I know is I have to have a liquid diet the day before and take laxatives in the evening before to be "cleaned out."
WHAT AM I GETTING INTO? Have had recurrent bladder infections since September (3 to be exact) so my PC doc referred me on. When I saw the specialist this past week he asked me a few questions, looked at my chart and said he wanted me in Bismarck for these tests.
Someone please let me know what I am in for. Thanks - you are the greatest.
Thanks for the info. It is a urologist I am seeing. I've had colonoscopies done and what they are telling me to do is nothing like what I had for that. The nurse just said she would suggest sticking pretty much to liquids the day before and to take a laxative (like Milk of Mag) the night before. I asked if I had to be cleaned out like for a colonoscopy and she said "OH NO".
You say they do it under a local anesthetics. Maybe that is why she said nothing to eat or drink after midnight. I think I will call down there this week.....just so I am prepared. YUCK!
