Perfect 23° today so we took the dogs for a walk (and a splash in a muddy pool...) in Ashdown Forest followed by a delicious meal in the beer garden of the Gallipot Inn in Hartfield.  :beers:   Aaaaah, bliss...!  :) :) :)

And I get to do a bit of work on the layout this evening.  :claphappy:

Cheers,

Chris

Really glad you had a great day.
However, a word of caution, a case of Alabama foot rot was confirmed in Lewes, which is less than 20 miles away.
Cheers, Trev.

That's excellent news Trev.   :thumbsup: After having similar problems 3 or 4 years ago and following numerous biopsies, scans etc., it was nice to be told 18 months or so ago, that, as far as the Doc's could tell, there was nothing to worry about.  I might have to get the single malt out now to celebrate with/for you!  :beers:

I make no apologies for repeating my advice to forum members at the time - any man over the age of about 40 should ask their GP for a PSA, (prostate specific antigen), test. A 'wrong' result does not mean there is something wrong.  :no:. But if there is anything amiss, the sooner it is found the better.

Great news! However, I read a while ago that the tests they are using these days are a lot more sensitive and are coming up positive for blood in urine for lots of people who actually have no problem. It may well be the case that it is fairly common, but wasn't detectable at the low levels of most people before.

I guess that's probably true, but better safe than sorry..
Over the last several years I've had a few "bladder infections". Twice treated with antibiotics, and sometimes self treated with cranburry juice successfully.  This time the cranberry didn't work, saw the doc, antibiotics again for the third time, and had to give a sample , and this time red blood cells found, twice, a week apart.  That's when I got refered to urology.
I know the NHS has a few problems, but this has all been sorted in a month and can only sincerely thank them for the "service" I have received in such a timely manner. 
Cheers, Trev.

Glad you are all clear. I had the same inspections last year with "nowt to worry about" results. Apparently such traces are common once you get to around 50 but initial tests are more accurate and GPs are becoming uber cautious and referring "just in case"
If it looks right, it probably is right.

I got referred to the urologist who decided to look inside. I thought they would use a fibre optic camera, but I think they used a bit of 1/2” gas pipe with a threaded end. Fortunately all OK, but they still don’t know why I keep getting infections. Now on a prophylactic dose of antibiotics l
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

It would appear that the tools used are directly proportional to the hole being investigated - the bigger the hole, the bigger the instrument, (and I know  :'().  But please do not let that put you off gents, it's not that bad really..................honest.  :)

Glad things are ok with you Malc.

Fortunatly mine was comletely painless, mind you I put that down to me being the only male in the room. :-[
I'm in the same boat as you in not knowing why it keeps happening.
Cheers, Trev.

Yes, they do like to give you an audience. I had a nurse sitting by my head and the consultant and two students at the business end. The consultant insisted on showing me the pictures. He said the camera was in what he called the J manoeuvre, where it bends around so you can see where it comes in. I asked him to do me a favour and straighten it out before he pulled it out. He didn’t even smile.
