Went for my first appointment the this Uro. I was really pleased with him. We had an open conversation and discussed my situation and where I was at this time in my recovery.

We also discussed the injection meds. He was very helpful and told me when I was ready for a script he would be willing to write the scrip that I choose. (trimix) He also advised that he can write a script for generic alprosidal and I can get it from the compounding pharmacy.

Then came the hickup! The exam! He found a hernia. I have no symptoms and he said I could wait but probably will need to get it fixed. He also said he would not do the repair he would recommend a gen. surgeon to fix it. He told me to just think about it and let him know or just wait for my next visit in 6 months for us to make a decision.

I must say I like this guys approach. He also did give me some samples. :)

How did you get a hernia? Did you wake up hanging from the chandelier after a Trimix tussle? Again!
Don't you hate when that happens?

I would think that the hernia is more likely from the 500 miles a week you spend in that danged bicycle seat. I keep trying to tell you that you are wearing me out just thinking about all that riding you do.

I am glad that you found a Uro that you feel good about. We all know that is step 1 in dealing with any of this carp. And how can you not like a guy that is free with the samples. I must admit that I only keep my Uro in the loop so I can stop by, say howdy and pick up another bag of goodies.

Have a really great day and stay out of the wrong saddle,

Sonny

Well I guess it could be either from the TriMix games or from the bike riding but I'll tell you the trimix games has the bike riding beat hands down.. :)

And I not going to stop that. Just getting started again.

Hey
Thinking that the hernia derived from using that device that you purchased from ebay, you know the one that I fear will roll out on the floor someday when least you want it to.

Glad Jeff that you have found a good Uro to now see. We hope that it works out for you. And, don't fuss over the hernia, had one on the right, put off getting it repaired until I could not stand the pain anymore, then they cut me open, placed a screen patch, and I was back to riding wild horses in about 6 weeks.

You stay safe my friend.

Cajun Jeff:
- the hernia could be related to the penile rehab stuff rather than your bike riding which was more of a level plane and not in speed mode
- there was some very active chandelier antics you spoke about ( and showed the components to a couple of guys at GFMPH) - that can aggravate a weakened area without your knowledge
- (and in my younger adventurous days ->been there - done that - oww.....

- so no sandbag lifting for you, Jeff.
-hope all is well in that levee department - you are in our thoughts and prayers...

Jeff- scores -1- old uro-doc=-0-

Way to go Jeff, I see you have tiger blood and winning....hopefully the prior docs ego gets refractive, humility is needed and therapeutic at times....you gave the proper doseage as a layperson. See how much better you feel already?

Play the hernia card for awhile....I can't lift that or no I can't do that because???

Be careful playing that hernia card. You don't want it to spill over and affect into the Trimix usage. wink

Well guys I have to say I am not overly concerned about the hernia. The Dr said to take my time no need to make a quick decision about surgery. In fact he said if I dont get symptoms we would discuss the fix at my Dec appointment. He also said you have time to wrap your head around his.

Then the office called to tell me this morning to let me know, I am still in the zero club. What can I complain about. I am a very fortunate man and I know it. It I start having symptoms I will just get er done!

You guys just rock.
