The needle he would fire through the rectal wall into your prostate 2 dozen times over the course of an hour will be worse than “OW”.

My dad had prostate cancer when he died, but he died of other causes. He told me he refused prostate surgery, because of the bad results a friend of his suffered from such surgery.

During my visit to my urologist last spring, he told me he had undergone a prostate biopsy recently, and apologized for bitching at me for flinching every time he fired the biopsy needle into my prostate during my two biopsies.

Biopsy needle? Geez...so much to look forward to in the `golden years’.

Just had my first colonoscopy but that was nothin’ in the hurt department. Open heart surgery wasn’t that big a deal either. Guess it’s back to my old Army doc whose name believe it or not is Dr. Cutting.

Better than Dr. Payne, I suppose.
