Hello @Kyvas … are you talking about the University of California, Berkley? I am a transplant and there are so many colleges here. But yesterday I did a search of my PPO approved doctors!? And none were from Colleges? We are really unhappy with our Blue Sheild PPO because it is acting more like a HMO than a PPO. I could go to L.A. or S.F. and possibly get a teaching college, yet here, all the Urological Surgeons are attached to one of the big hospitals. One guy I’ve already been to (who was listed in Best Doctors ) and he said that I just had to learn to live with it and that I should go back to the Dr. that did my “incorrect” reversal (as I’ve learned on these boards)., to which I said “thanks a lot (Best Doc?)” and left! The insainity of it all is what bugs me the most. If i would ask one hundred men “where would it hurt most if i kicked you right now?” I’m pretty confident I could get in the 80 to 90percentile region that testacles would be in part of their answer…BUT! All of the Urologists that I have tried to discuss this problem with, act like I’m a wimp or something is wrong with my head… I know that they are not tellimg the truth…but they seem so aloof so distracted (like they are hiding something) I can’t seem to find anyone I can trust!
I actually read on one board where this one guy who had done a rather large survey, said that he was pretty sure it was a certain body type, with a certain amount of hair and a certain sex drive that come down with PVPS…I think his study is as valid as the urologists that i’ve spoken too. I’ll send this now because I always type too much. Thanks for the discussion.
