consultation meeting

Posted 04 Nov 2014 at 19:17
Had a refreshing change today a Consultant who had time to chat with me. He has just transferred to Hallamshire from Doncaster (Mr P).Paul you know him well.

He was the first consultant I saw when dx

He was really interested in how I was doing. ED, continence etc. We talked about my bladder neck stenosis and with no prompting he said if you ever go into retention do not let any tom, dick or Harry near you with a catheter. ..He said I need a urologist but there is a procedure to drain off urine to offer relief until a urologist can get involved.

But he did say this was unlikely at this point.

We discussed cialis and how it causes me muscle aches...He explained the science behind that and advised I try viagra...He will write to my GP to that effect.

Why can't they all offer the same level of service. A lovely bloke who even shared his career ambitions with me

Thanks for posting.

Agree Bri, brilliant when you get this Mick's oncologist was a Daimond geezer, I still bump into him when I am at the hospital and he always comes for a hug and a chat.

Sounds like you are doing really well Bri , Dave is asking about a get together you up for one just before Christmas ?

Good to see Mr P is still involved. I liked him a lot and so sorry to see him go though I had an encouraging first meet with the clinical lead! Good to see you are well, Bri!

I wish we could name people as my urologist and oncologist are both excellent and allow plenty of time for questions etc.

Hi Bri,

Please let us in on the secret,http://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-surprised.gif

 but there is a procedure to drain off urine to offer relief until a urologist can get involved.

Barry he didn't go into specifics but basically it involves draining the bladder with a syringe....not great but believe you me it gives a sense of relief knowing they can do something when options are limited

Hi Bri,

I only asked the question as i have some brutal people who have inserted a catheter in me who must have done their training on an old dog [Sorry dog],

Thank you

I remember reading your profile Barry and it does sound like you had some bad treatment. The urologist told me to tell them to stay away with a catheter, I suppose they could damage the join between bladder and urethra.
He said they can draw off urine using a syringe a bit like taking blood which would give relief until a urologist could get involved

Cor bri

I wish someone had given me that advice,

I have been rodded  brutally so many times that I am now totally incontinent, my splinter is wrecked,

one nurse who shall remain nameless once said to me the faster it goes in the better {+++G
