Recommendations for a doctor please

This post may have TMI for some folk so if you’re squeamish please scroll on.

For the last 5 years I have had what is called a hydrocele. Basically it is fluid buildup in the testes. It has become increasingly larger over time but lately has become painful and noticeable no matter what kind of pants I wear, and is about the size of a baseball. Its apparently fairly common.

I saw a doctor and had it diagnosed however this doctor moved out of province shortly after and I did not get a referral from them in time. I am afraid of needles and basically anything to do with doctors so I need someone patient and willing to discuss everything with me so I dont freak out. I called a couple urologists but they all require referrals even though the diagnosis is on my file, but I haven’t been able to find a suitable doctor that is accepting new patients.

I’m looking for someone on the south end preferably but willing to drive a bit out of the way for the right doctor. Its a fairly simple surgery but is serious and will leave me off work for about a week and require a few followups. Any recommendations?

    Dr. Ben at Terwillegar Family Clinic is great. Very thorough. Never a long wait for an appointment. It’s in Terwillegar Towne (by the henday and rabbit hill rd). 780-430-6520. He diagnosed an issue with my knees my previous doctor didn’t. Same with my mom.

    Go to a walk in dr. Any walk in. And they will refer you to the proper place. The walk in dr won’t do it. But they will refer you to someone else

    If you check online, you’ll be able to find a doctor in your area who is accepting new patients. Normally the Primary Care Network has a list of them as well. Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network is at 3110 Calgary Trail NW. Telephone 780 395 2626. They are open 9-9. Can’t hurt to give them a try.
    Good luck.

  15. You will need a referral to see a urologist. I have been told that Dr. Theresa McCallum is a very good urologist. She’s in Leduc. You may not have to wait as long to see her as a doctor in Edmonton.

    Or if you’re not good on the idea of a female doctor go here: http://search.cpsa.ca/PhysicianSearch and plug in “Edmonton” for the city, “Urology” for the speciality, and “Male” for the physician’s gender, then press ‘search’ at the bottom right.

    My son was born with a double hydrocele hernia, it was a small operation, 2 tiny cuts…when the testies drop the “shute” they came through is supposed to close over, sometimes one closes, sometimes none. Because it is open the fluid gets in there. They just make a small incision by your pubic bone and stitch the seals up. He was up and running the next day
