Quote from Connor:yeah thats what i was saying that if thats normal since i was off the prozac for a couple of days.
what do you mean by fluid? i mean its just been semen. doesnt look unusual. shortly after the ejaculation i have to urinate and i guess that flushes it all out of me.
and there is one urologist in particular that we know about. to go see. just that im tied up with exams from now till the end of next week. then its the christmas break. so hopefully i will be ok till then. if i feel worse tomorrow. then for sure im gonna go see that urologist.
but like i said , when i worry... i WORRY! haha. i mean i get freaked out and always think the worst case scenario. cause i dont know whats going on. so yeah thats probably why i was put on the prozac. which is very mild so its not the strong stuff. and well really there isnt much of a difference wether i take them or not. just that i myself feel better. as in thinking that i will be safer taking the prozac.
You may want to try and get an appointment set up before you run into an emergency. Urologist specialize in this area so they are probably a LOT better than going to your regular dr. That way you won't have to worry about missing school if you get worse. My urologist will see me for recurrent infections and I don't have to have an active infection going on at the time. Sometimes it can take awhile to get in with a good urologist. I've heard that two or three months is sometimes normal for waiting to get in. I was lucky that I only had to wait two weeks and most recently one week. The original dr. I tried to get in with had a two month waiting list and they offered me an appointment with a brand new dr. there. I am glad I took it because he is awesome and I don't have to wait very long to get in if I need to. If your lucky they may be able to get you in within the week. You can always schedule it for after you get out of school for the day or during Christmas break. Remember most offices are open till 5pm.
You do have your plate full with stuff. Hang in there. As for the antibiotics, sometimes it takes a different antibiotic to clear up an infection than what you had before. If you had the same antibiotic within a time period, the same thing you had before may not be the right thing for you at another time. Cipro is a very powerful antibiotic. You were right to go to the E.R. I can't imagine how much pain that is.
When you said that they told you your urine was clean did they actually do a culture? This takes 24 hours to get the results and can tell them what antibiotic works best to take care of the infection. I've had an experience where a urologist office told me that my child's urine was clean but my child was still suffering from symptoms. I immediately took her back to the primary dr. where they did a culture and she tested positive for infection. I never went back to that urologist. You kind of have to be your own advocate and write down things. If you have questions to ask write them down so you don't forget later. I always make a list of questions no matter how small or sometimes I forget. It helps the appointment go by easier. It's not fun laying there while you are being examined trying to think of what you were going to aks and then walk out of there thinking "I forgot to ask this!" Try not to dwell on long details of what you go through with stress that's not related to your problem and say what your concerns about your problem are. Make a list something like this but with your own concerns....This is just an example
1. What causes this?
2. I've been worried and stressed out a lot about this that I'm having problems focusing on school or other things.
3. Is there any danger of orgasms causing more problems with this? What about nocturnal emissions?
4. Is there anything you recommend for me that hasn't been done yet by my primary dr?
5. Are the current medications appropriate for me?
6. What medication are you giving me and what will it do and why this one rather than something else?
7. Could this problem affect my fertility later on?
8. When can I expect this to clear up?
9. What should I do if I continue to feel symptoms or are not better. Should I come back to see you?
Yes when I said fluid I meant semen. I was trying to think of a better word to use. Sorry.
