I'm willing to a point to ask some questions of the Nurse who was present during my biopsy. But not having treatment for a "Boggy +2" prostrate should not have been over looked since 07 Jan 05! I'm done getting "treatment" at the Veteran's Admin Hospital.
I've heard numerous stories of poor treatment but never and until now did I think I'd fall into this category.
