Okay, I was having a little issue with the old piss pipe that thankfully has pretty much resolved itself, so I went to a general doctor whom I had seen before in the past, nice guy, handles most basic things, he took a urine sample which was fine but wouldn't do the old finger exam to check the prostate even though I asked about it, said "it doesn't sound like prostate" which I agree it didn't but I was there and thought it would be nice to know how the little gland is doing but he said no. I also remember 4 years ago another doctor in the same practice I asked when getting a physical and he said "we don't do it unless your P.S.A. levels are high" so I guess they go by some newer "guidelines" now. Well I got bloodwork done for a physical about 3 weeks ago and the P.S.A. level was 0.8 which is wonderful thank God but the physical part of the physical was postponed because they cancelled on me because of snow and I don't go in for that until 3/20. But I continued to have some issues and made an appointment with a urologist last week and he did do the exam and said "it's a little enlarged but everyone at you age is " as I'm 58 but he felt no abnormalities and also did a urine test which was fine also, and the issue seems to have quieted down, just one of those issues we get as we age I guess. But I find it interesting that a regular or "family" doctor won't do it unless your levels are high, especially when I suggested it. Is it like this for you fellas wherever you are too?
