I had an interesting chat at a wedding reception this weekend. I've a friend who is a pathologist and he told me he'd checked in my specimen at the hospital. He said "I didn't know you were going to have surgery but figured it had to be you." (A google search suggests there are fewer than 10 others in the US with my name.)
He said he'd checked the final report and we talked a bit about what it said. He also said that my urologist would be the guy he'd see if/when he has the same problem.
All in all, it is comforting to know that a friend has got your back. I'm getting a copy of the full report from him this week.
