Regarding the possibility of infection, my uro put me on Norfloxacin for (now I forget...) 10-12 days? This was the same antibiotic he put me on last year. When I questioned why he'd put me on the same medication when it didn't work previously, he said just because it didn't work last time, doesn't mean it won't work this time. My pharmacist told me there are other newer medications that he could have put me on.
I'm sure my uro knows his stuff, but he doesn't appear to be
open to answering questions. Not sure how honest he is with me either. Maybe he doesn't want me to worry until the results are in. When I asked him what type of treatment he`d be thinking about
if the biopsy showed PCa, he said he didn`t want to discuss it. He softened a bit and then said it really depends on what they find. Could be watch and wait, could be surgery.....fair enough.
I just received my latest PSA results yesterday. They were scheduling a biopsy for me at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. he just refers me, but haven`t called me back with the date and time. My uro doesn`t do the actually biopsy, he just refers me. Not even sure if he`s the one who will do the surgery if needed.
Thanks for the encouragement. I hope you guys are kicking PCa's ass.
