Hey Doc, miss me?
I have calmed down my fears/panic the last few weeks which is why you haven't heard from me. Went to the urologist two weeks ago. He examined the penis, found no swelling and thought it looked fine.
ALso made me take a urine test. no bacteria was found in the test but a "trace" of blood allegedly was found but he said it was such a tiny amount that it was in significant and told me not to worry. I didnt see any blood when i urinated into a cup.
Also saw my pcp today and told him the urology results. He thinks i should be ok and maybe i have urethritis...Also recommended just so we have boxes checked that i do a urine text for chlamidia and gonorrhea. He also looked at where my tinea/lcs was and say i look good there now. I still itch a little there but when wearing looser clothing far less. My hair down there has also grown long now as i havent shared or trimmed there in 3 months...
Yea I suppose. What do you think of all I wrote above?
I guess the penis still feels a tad inflamed here and there...that is making me still a little nervous
well cuz it doesnt feel like normal
well nothing wrong on surface...what if he took a mini camera and stuck it inside my penis and found something (a procedure he described to me as available but would be painful). he also didnt even bother checking my prostate which makes me question him
oh he threw that out as an option if i still felt unsure/uncomfortable even after the results came out ok
that he didnt go in much detail or i forgot...
Ok thanks. Btw did they change how you leave a rating on JA? I don't see the rating tab anymore?
What do you think the odds are i have chlamydia or gonnorrhea given that i haven't had sexual intercourse in 3 years?
Thanks for the info Doc.Didn't realize that...out of curiousity why do you think zero percentage? I will provide rating after this answer.
I am also getting a urine test sometime this week to check for gonnorrhea and chlamydia. I just don't know wwhy my doc wanted to check for those?
I did have a test for bacteria in my urine a few weeks ago with my urologist. He said everything fine there...could that potentially reduce odds that i have chlamydia or gono?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX make you potentially repeat what you just said but did you mean that without bacteria in urine chances are zero or that without bacteria in urine the chances are even less likely considered i have had no symptoms past 3 years?
On a separate note, how does one know if you have a yeast infection? Are there any visible signs symptoms? My doc said it looks like my tinea is gone but i have some itching in a couple areas still (behind ball sac) and a little on outer thighs but it doesn't look like there is anything there visually
I discovered a couple pimples on my buttocks area recently...is this the sign of something really bad?
yes pimples, zits whatever u want to call them
well, too be honest they look like a pimple or mosquito bite etc
Please dont think i am crazy but could it possibly be related to my worst fear?
I hope you are right but i remember reading months back that folicalitis could be as a result of a problem with immune system or hiv...
Is that true?
Well i read this below on boils (which maybe is what i have)...seems like they list immune system problems as a potential cause?
