MY UROLOGIST WANTS TO DO A PROSTRATE BIOPSY AND HAVE ME STOP…

Customer Question
MY UROLOGIST WANTS TO...

MY UROLOGIST WANTS TO DO A PROSTRATE BIOPSY AND HAVE ME STOP TAKING MY EFFEIN TODAY FOR THE BIOPSY WEDNESDAY. MY CARDIOLOGIST SAYS NO WAY BECAUSE THE BLOOD THINNER IS FOR A STENT I GOT IN SEPTEMBER 2017. SO WHAT THE HELL DO I DO NOW.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

DONT UNDERSTAND

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

NO THAT IS ABOUT IT. DO I DIE FROM A HEART ATTACK OR PROSTRATE CANCER.

Don’t know PSA. Have had two separate test. Urologist says I can’t wait if another six months. I need the biopsy now. Cardiologist says I can’t stop taking the blood thinner until September. What do I do.

My urologist wants me to stop taking the blood thinner on Monday which is two days before the biopsy. He said I might bleed a little bit but he would do the biopsy. Is this a good or a bad idea.
Urologist: Ross, Urologist replied 1 month ago

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
