HOW TO MAKE LIFE EASY FOR YOU AND
THE MEDICAL PROFESSION
Any doctor reading this with alternative suggestions - please contact ARCgroup
The doctor examines for foreskin conditions in the flaccid state,
many would not even consider the erectile effects. Doctors do not
generally realise as Wabrek eventually did "... just because the foreskin slides over the flaccid
penis does not mean it is going to slide over the erect penis." Without a good knowledge of your own condition, there is a justifyable
fear of inaccurate diagnosis and being offered an unecssary full
circumcision as the only option.
Even erection stimulants will not show the erectile effects. As Wabrek realised,
diagnosis is simplest and is far more accurate by talking. However,
maybe discussing intimate details is an unecessary embarrassment
for you and your doctor.
Ok so Doctors are usually reasonable people and if you talk with
them in a practical way then they will respond positively.
The important point and attitude to adopt about a
self diagnosis is that you understand your condition enough,
- to make it worth a doctor discussing treatment with you in an intelligent
manner, instead of simply and usually recommending circumcision -
with you left clueless and unhappy.
WHICH DOCTOR ... (did I say Witch Doctor?)
Jewish Doctor for Partial Circumcision
The doctors who are practised and perfected with partial circumcision
are Jewish doctors. Please see Partial
Dermatologists - "skin doctors" are the specialists for methods
and ointments which will stretch skin. We`re not talking about internal
things (in which the urologist is very well versed) --- Besides which
they regularly have to deal with VD problems balanitis etc. so they`re
probably far more used to looking at foreskins than urologists and
If you want any sort of operation, go to a surgeon. Surgeons are
the experts for cutting. I used to advise going to the urologists,
one imagines that this is the urologists special field, but urologists
receive no training on the function of the foreskin, only on internal
Frenulum treatment is no problem for an Urologist. Every urologist
has learned how to do this piece of professional plastic surgery
- even circumcision with modern helpers (plastibells etc.) is technically
an incredibly simple operation and they have often learned a method
passed down from a senior doctor. And this is the point, a surgeon
would be far more likely to know any latest developments.
For a half hour operation the individual doctor is understandably
unwilling to spend a couple of hours devising a specific new operation
and then taking responsibility that it`ll work.
If you want a special operation, plastic surgery etc. then it will
probably cost, and a cosmetic surgeon may be best - someone who does
breast surgery would probably feel he was an appropriate doctor.
Dont try and impress them with scientific names, doctors dont
like this, I suggest you call phimosis - the ring : and frenulum
- the band - if you can admit to some of the typical symptoms and
then say its something to do with the band or ring - then you and
he can be happy as he confirms your diagnosis.
Doctors seem to quite like their patients bringing in recent relevant
medical studies - they have so much new to learn all the time and
so actually seem to appreciate being presented with new solutions
from the meical literature. - (naturally they`d prefer the original
literature to extracts from my site - but I dont have fax so the
only other suggestion is go to medline).
And then be friendly, practical and un-embarrassed and say "I`d
like to try Betamethasone 05 to cure a phimotic ring, here it says
in these medical studies that it
often works - (or can you refer me to a dermatologist)" OR "Hi Doc.
I`ve got a minor phimosis problem and I`d appreciate it if you`d
put 2 or 3 plastic
cuts in it - (or refer me to a good surgeon)."
