So, appointment went well. One week until they shove a camera and a laser up my wang and go crazy. Yeah, not loving that idea, but I suppose it's better than a kidney stone. Then, depending on how inflamed the area is inside, the stint that they'll put in while it heals will be there for anywhere between one and six weeks (apparently, taking that out is a ten-second in-office procedure, which also squicks me out).

Really, the only downside that I have is that I'll be on anti-biotics afterward, dunno exactly for how long, but I'm betting it's more than three days. Sine I shouldn't drink while on anti-biotics, this means I'll have to be sober for my birthday. It lands on a Saturday for a change, and I was looking forward to a drunken gathering full of debauchery. I suppose i either put off that gathering (holiday season though, that's less likely to be worth trying) or I have it anyway and insist that everyone drink for me. THAT could get funny...

Yeah, I may just do that. Maybe I'll do both.

the phrase "up your wang" is just wrong in any context, ever.

hope you make it through OK, bud.

Yeah, I'm not bothered by hardly anything in life, but things going up my pee-hole tops the short list.

I would TOTALLY drink your share. It's a sacrifice, but I'd do it for you because I'm a good friend.

Aw, see, I knew I could depend on good friends.

I do not envy you any of this, but I am glad that the end is in sight, even if the road there may not be the most fun.

Totally worth it, to say the least.

Ugh, yeah, that's squickworthy for sure. Good luck, man. At least the procedure will yield guaranteed results, so here's to that.

Aye, indeed.

Good luck with that. Hopefully, luck will have nothing to do with it. I can do little but be extremely glad it isn't happening to me yet. And wish you luck.

Remember you can drink on most antibiotics. In fact, I'm pretty sure you can drink on any of them apart from metronidazole/Flagyl (she says, having seemingly managed to pick up every ailment that has to be treated with that one!)

I'll have to remember to ask him.

Hey, depending on the antibiotics it might be BETTER than getting drunk off your ass! :)

I'll have a drink for you. And quite likely fall asleep soon after, since I have zero tolerance for alcohol anymore...

I think alcohol supposedly reduces the effectiveness of antibiotics, and antibiotics supposedly reduce the effectiveness of birth control, and yet I've taken antibiotics, gotten drunk and had sex with no ill effects. Not that I'm endorsing it for anyone else, but with the number of doctors whom I've personally visited who have no F-ing clue what they're talking about, I don't feel entirely compelled to listen to them 100% of the time.
God of Thunder and Rock'n'Rollarchmage on December 3rd, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we'll see. I'm going to try and remember to ask the doc about the specific one I'm on, and he DOES seem to be more on the ball than a lot of docs.

Your actually better of asking your Pharmacist that question. There are so many different antibiotics out there now that the Docs aren't always very good at keeping that straight.
