i was told to drink water and there was a water machine in the waiting room, as well as bowls of candy, quartered donuts, a coffee/hot chocolate machine, plush love seats and a large LED flatscreen. i was usually asked if i had drank water, and usually i drank about
20 ozs. enroute to the clinic which is less than 10 minutes from my house. if i forgot to drink water i would do so in the waiting room.
i always used the bathroom after my session. it's my understanding that the machine compensated daily for the position of my prostate. also, the techs did not check if my bladder was full enough...i'm not even sure if it was possible to check.
