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?
