hi...it never ends does it...just got the new gnashers fitted last tuesday,after having to get all my teeth removed from the after effects of radio therapy...well chuffed with my new look :D... later that night into the loo before bed...just happened to look down...pissin blood!!!
went round the docs in the morning...given some antibiotics...and a hospital appointment...
went to the local uroligy dept this morning...my tests from last week were back...i hadnt had an infection,but there are still signs of blood in the urine...so doc says strip from the waist down,and put these gowns on...oh and just hang your dignity up behind the door...lol
so the doc and three nurses gather round and tell me to lift up the gown...one nurse brings over an IV style drip and docs gets out video camera... and sticks these two tubes up me doodah...ooyah!!!
not as sore as it sound...but my fek...uncomfortable to the extreme...coz you cant tell if your peein yourself at the time,with this drip attached
anyway...docs happy...bladder normal,prostate,slightly enlarged with age...im 58...but no masses or lumps visible...so waiting to go for scans now for liver and kidneys...to find out where blood is coming from...
a lot of blood coming away tonight,but i have been poked about with...and that first pee after the procedure,is ooyah... you feel as if your gonna pee a golf ball...:eek:
i'll let you know more when i get the scans...

cheers...al

I can honestly say that is an experiance that you don't forget,like you say you really can't say if you are peeing or not, i had the same thing years ago, but they never did find out though where the blood came from???. What for me though was the nurse who said " you don't mind if i do this? " do what i enquired " This,she said " and then out came a very larger needle:shake: and straight down the ol'e fellow it went:shock:

don't worry almost all men go through this, she said...:lol:

Was doing some work on the Vette a few years ago inside the engine compartment and was stupidly kneeling on the front fender - slipped, fell with one leg out side car, the other in the engine compartment, crushing my gonads. Obviously painful at the time but no big deal. Next day started passing a little bit of blood so went to doctor. Doc said this is OK I had just damaged several delicate capillaries and it would clear in a few days (which it did) but sent me to have an Xray and have check up at hospital. All OK, they checked out prostate and other than being slightly enlarged (age related) I was OK. I was now 'in the system' and had to go back a year later for check-up. This time they decided to take a sample from the prostate - and found a small tumour. Cutting a long story story short I had the prostate removed which has got rid of the significant secondary cancer risk that comes from prostate cancer - (although in itself this brings other issues). The golden rule here is not to be a typical male, ignoring a problem thinking that it will go away - you owe it to yourself and your family to go to the doctors, demand a referral to hospital if needed - it is your right - that is what the NHS is there for.

Did you get a discount on ya gnashers?
I now work for nhs, no discount and can't afford a dental job whilst the car needs some parts. :pmsl:

I pissed a pint of blood ish quite unexpectedly into a large urinal trough much to my embarrasment many years ago.
Put it down to a kick in the kidneys from an earlier brawl.

A catheter down the todger can be very uncomfortable for some. :shock:
Don't know the procedure but once in they can flush you out as it were.
If torn out can lead to temporary blood loss.

Hth. ;)

You're doing better than me with the gnashers, really struggle with mine and losing teeth at an alarming rate after fighting for years to hang on to them.:(

Been there with the tube thing several times .The last time had to go in and fetch a stainless steel stent they'd left in there so the tube came out bigger than it went in. I'm sure some would pay for the experience ,it's certainly ' surprising' !

I've had issues with both liver and kidney so don't forget I'm here if you need any info.

As said above , DON'T let 'mens issues' embarass you. Stuff like testicular,bladder and prostate cancer are highly treatable if caught early by not ignoring it. I've several friends who are living proof of what can be done.

I had to have a catheter about 12 years ago. Thankfully I was at 32,000 feet at the time, and remember nothing whatsoever about the experience. But the good lady Doris tells me that they struggled for quite some time to get it inserted, until a sister came along and managed it first time. Apparently the junior staff were all trying to use one that was too large. Fills me with absolutely no man pride .
Doris enjoys telling the story though.

I had the legendary umbrella in my teens twice and I can still recall the pain.
Mine was self inflicted but hope all works out for all

worste ive had is the needle in the nads before the snip, made my toes curl that did, the missus just laughed and asked the doctor if he would give me a couple more for good measure. even though I couldn't feel it , the crunching noise me pipes made when he cut them still sends shivers down me back.

years ago id been having "uncomfortable" pees then eventually pissing blood. made an appointment and got to see a doctor at the hospital. so goes along with the wife for moral support.. and the doctors asking loads of questions including "have you been having sex with other people lately?" embarrassed i turn to her and go no.. ive not.. have you?? shes like "no i bloody haven't"....etc etc.. well lets just say that was an 'interesting' afternoon. and it was some kind of infection cleared up with antibiotics.
talking of having the snip i had it done -no probs until i had to go back to the docs for a check up, there was a locum doc who id never seen before and i had to "flop"-(yeah ok) the old man out for her.. she was fit as f**k and i was trying my hardest (wrong choice of word) not to get erm.. giddy?? ooh i couldnt look her in the face while shes pulling him here and there...... :whistle:
