I've been to my doctor for prostate issues with all the usual annoying symptoms like frequent urination, getting up several times during the night etc.

He's started me on a strong antibiotic and something to relieve the symptoms as a start, and then if that doesn't work (doesn't seem to work) I'll be seeing a urologist and hopefully not, but potentially surgery. Hopefully I'm not dealing with the 'C' word.

Just wondering if any of you have dealt with this issue. If you prefer you can PM me.

Cecil, never mind. I had left a space between the "d" and the "1" of your name. Removing the space let the message through.

Been there and done that Cecil. I've been on the 6 month prostate cancer watch list for about 4 years but am not worried about it. The biopsy is a real character builder.

Without a PSA test and finger wave, the Doc isn't worried about cancer.

Prostate cancer is about the slowest growing of the cancers. They sometimes tell older men that it is slow enough that they could die of old age before the cancer spreads and gets them. The trick is to get tested annually and to keep aware of any issues.

You probably have an infection or a spastic bladder.

Cecil -- it is just one of those things in a man's progression from childhood to geezerdom. It fits right in with growing facial hair, voice change, puberty, gray hair/balding, stiffness in places where you don't want to be stiff, etc.

This is a good time of year to be on the anti-biotic for this condition. The tablets make you very susceptible to sunburn.

I don't think I'd worry too much about the "C" word. My father was the last one I knew who "kind-of" died from it. That was over 35 years ago when things were a whole lot little different. He actually died from an indirect cause that wouldn't happen with today's medical procedures.

I'm sure you doctor will tell you to drink lots of water, and stay away from excess caffeine. You may have to negotiate with your wife for the other thing your doctor will probably tell you that helps prevent these problems.
