What If Ca 125 Doesnt Change After Chemo
Dr. Did prostate rectal exam. It was painful n burning. He said he will wait or hold on antibiotics prescription till i come back in 3 months. Why ? What do you think he suspected?

On the other hand, the exam may have simply been uncomfortable either because of poor technique or inadequate relaxation. I don't think that He would wait 3 months if he strongly suspected an infected gland. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Your bf still needs to wear condoms to minimize std risk. ...Read more
