If initial therapy is unsuccessful, then referral to specialist is indicated. For women: urogynecologist, gynecologist, or urologist, and for men- urologist.

A 37-year-old male asked:

I don't have insurance and can't see a doctor. I found out I have hep c. What should I do to medicate my disease?

No insurance: You can still be seen by a doctor without insurance. You have a disease that is life threatening. You need to be treated early in its course to save your liver. There are many programs and many clinics where you can be treated for reduced cost. Many of us also give discounts for cash pay and will work with you to make payments. Don't use the excuse that you can't be seen without insurance.

Maybe never: A arthritic joint will tend to have less range of motion and more stiffness but will not necessarily fuse. Surgery is normally required to fuse a joint. There are are other treatments for arthritis in the foot depending on the location, symptoms and function. See a podiatrist for evaulation and discussion of treatment options.
