    and while we're at it...

    +1 on Moto31's comments re getting MD advice and second opinions.
    +1 on Cranberry juice.
    Let me also suggest a colonoscopy for those of us of either sex with long life experience. Preventative med is precisely that.
    Glad you're on the mend...

    OK, so after many tests, a colonoscopy, much blood and urine work, psa and potassium is back in the normal range and things are improving after a week of this crazy strong levaquin antibiotic. It seems this was an infection and prostatitus. A hell of a scare but I am feeling alot better. Keep after yourselves guys. OK i need another glass of cranberry juice.

    Stay safe;

    If that Doctor is using his thumb, he's doing the test wrong!
