Now the pepster wants to do podcasts…no way shomcheppie….
Today I informed a patient that his prostate biopsy showed cancer and he began, as often patients do, telling me about advice various friends had given him.
“My friend down the street told me not to have the regular surgery, I should have the one with the little holes in stead. My buddy in Tennessee said he had radiation and that for about a year it was rough, but that now he’s fine.”
Do the one with the little holes…okay?
After a year, (of frequency to void, urgency and getting up at night) I am fine?
Now that was good advice. Wonder what his urologist thinks. I don’t know. I elected to just listen to what all his friends and relatives recommended. I learned something.
As my mother would say, “landed on deaf ears John.”
