i went in yesterday for my post 3 week IMRT visit to the radiologist. yup, another rectal exam. since i was diagnosed with p/c I've had so many rectal examinations I've lost track. i know they are a part of the whole picture but i hate 'em.

I recall that Jeweller telling that “..he could measure any ones finger-ring by the touch…”

Hope the results were satisfying just as you whished for.

Mine doesn't do the DRE until we've had dinner and a movie.

After making the rounds of several specialists during the discovery phase of my cancer, and getting the "exam" from each, I went to my GP for my annual physical. He, having received notices from all the other Drs of my visits, stated "Well, I guess it's time for the rectal exam, although I see that you've had it done quite a bit recently". I replied "Yeah, Doc, but you know . . . I'm starting to enjoy it".
He almost fell off his chair laughing....

Good one, Griz. I have found that a sense of humor is vital to making it through this. I read a great book from comedian Robert Schimmel called "Cancer on $5 a Day" about how he used humor to get through his battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. If he could laugh at what he was going through, I can certainly laugh at my PCa experiences.
