Yeah, we can take solace that a prostate exam will never be a shock to us like it will be to others. My situation became very grave. Usually, this surgery wouldn’t be so painful and in most countries, they put you to sleep. I’ve talked to a few doctors in America who were horrified that I was awake for it and that they’d never keep someone awake for something like this. I hope your experiences is much more pleasant. Luckily the recovery time is super quick. Once it is drained, the pain is gone.
