I share the following merely informing those who live in the North Texas area and who may be interested.  It is in no way meant to be of a promotional nature or an advertisement for the clinics.  I do not personally know either of these men.  I want to help provide information to those on this board who need to know more, as I. 
 
The Urology Clinics of North Texas is providing a free Men's Health Seminar June 25.  It will feature Dr Matthew Shuford and Dennis Holt, a prostate cancer survivor, as they discuss the causes and effective treatment solutions of ED and incontinence. Dennis has had laparoscopic and open prostatectomies which left him incontinent, impotent. After a long time of despondence, He received both the inflatable penile implant and artificial urinary sphincter.
 
If you are interested, please call 214-826-6021.  I understand space is limited.  I hope I am not breaking any rules by providing this information.  If I have, I am certain the thread will be quickly removed, as it should be.

I would hope it would not be removed.  I am not a moderator though. You said it was free screening and information.  How can one find anything better.  I am not one to need it but I am sure there are many in the North Texas area who do or should use it.

Thanks

I had the opportunity to hear Dennis Holt in B'ham a few weeks ago, he is a very inspiring speaker. After hearing what he has been through, it made me feel embarrassed to ever complain about my issues.

KW,

You got it right.  Those initials are not well known on this forum.  Glad you made it back safely from your cruise.
