I just had my first exam a couple weeks ago. No big deal. But then again, my doctor is a woman with smallish woman fingers. I did ask her if she could see the exit only sign back there.

At my age when you go to the doctor with an ear ache the first thing he wants to do is put his finger in your butt. "Doc, I said ear not rear".

There's a doctor near me that gives free exams any time you want. Only problem is that after the chloroform wears off I feel really groggy stepping down out of the van and it is hurts to sit down for a couple days.

Next time. Ask her to write your wife a note that your head is, in fact, not up there.

With respect to the thread title: Too many pints will cause me to go PROSTRATE... but it won't affect my PROSTATE.

I had prostate issues (non-cancer) at about 38... GF took me to the ER at 3am and they catheterized me; they removed a liter of urine from my bladder (!). I was on the Flomax for a year until it stopped working, and then had surgery.

If a doctor recommends a cystoscopy, run crying. At least for the second one, I had a cute nurse handling my junk... even better since my GF was in the room .

Being an EMT that's worked in 2 different (rather busy) hospitals in his career, I love how some guys are so ready to cringe at the prospect of a few moments of awkward-ness as opposed to getting a potentially life-saving detection method over & done with.

For story's sake, I recall a particularly stoic (i.e. redneck/hillbilliy/farmer-joe) gent that came in with acute abdominal & groin pain, fever-like symptoms and urinary issues for god-knows-how-many-weeks. It was actually his GF that slapped him around a few times in order to get him to go in the first place. Turns out his prostate was so overgrown that a) he wasn't able to take a whizz for over 6 days...think about that...and b) this massive amount of pee that was stored for such a long time had begun to stagnate inside his bladder.

Long story short, he came out of it +1 cath bag and -1 prostate/part of a urethra. He can no longer do the dirty deed, I might add.

And he was about 38-ish when he came in.

No, that wasn't me... Heck, the pressure build-up for half a day was far too much.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this.
