A Clean Heart

Give us Lord a clean heart and teach us how to love you and fear you. A prayer that is found in the Bible in so many forms. The good Lord is not partial to anyone. He does not take bribes, because there is no wrongdoing with the Lord (2 Chronicles 19:7)

For more on this idea, read the Book of 2 Chronicles in the Holy Bible.

What to expect from a prostate biopsy

Prostate biopsy has become a state of art of detecting cancer of the prostate. The procedure is done with an ultrasound that detects the presence of the most "problematic' areas in the prostate. Surgeons perform the biopsy either under local anesthesia or "conscious sedation". The latter is better because you won't remember a thing, similar to that done during colonoscopy. Find a surgeon who is willing to do the conscious sedation in your area. Sometimes you have to shop around. On the day of the procedure, you check in with the facility and give them your medical insurance information. You are asked to go the floor where the "surgery" is performed. A nurse takes initially your vital signs and asks you to fully disrobe and put on a hospital gown (I tend to think that these gowns are meant to keep you trap at the hospital unable to run away.)  Afterward, the nurse comes back to collect personal and medical information on you and listens to your lungs with a stethoscope. Then, she/he hooks you to a solution to replenish your fluid and electrolytes through the catheter they placed in your arm (it appears there is one nurse who specializes in this thing at every facility). They have you sign consents for the procedure and anesthesia and other things. Don't bother to read them, remember you are already wearing the gown. No escape is possible from this point on. Just sign these documents and smile. Afterward, the anesthesiologist comes in and ask you a few questions about your health, like breathing issues, asthma, and others. He/she asks you to look in your mouth. I think it is important to make sure nothing is blocking the airways like loose teeth or chewing gums. After that you will be given a light sedative to prepare you for the journey to the biopsy room. Once you are there, there are a few personnel who greet you. They place an oxygen mask over your face and voila. You are back to your bed not remembering a thing. Some men may require to have a catheter to let urine out for a few days after the procedure (this usually is done if you retain too much urine in your bladder after voiding.) They check the residual volume of urine in your bladder with an ultrasound scanner. Once this done, they discharge you.The surgeon normally orders for you antibiotic to take one day before surgery, on the day surgery, and the next day after the biopsy. The actual surgery takes about 15-30 minutes, but prepare to be there several hours. Ask your facility if they allow you to take the antibiotic pills on the day of surgery, especially if you are consciously sedated. Some surgeons may also give you antibiotics during the procedure intravenously. Also, to clear the rectum from feces, the surgeon asks you to give yourself an enema the day of the surgery prior to arriving at the hospital. This probably is the most unpleasant step in the entire thing. The next day of the surgery a nurse calls you to inquire on how you are doing (a courtesy phone call). They also ask you to make an appointment with your surgeon to remove the catheter and to go over the results. Best wishes if you are doing it. Under conscious sedation it ain't bad.

A Sad Sad Day

I lost one of my coworkers today. I worked with him at the same company for 28 years, since 1989. BG was a gentle and humerus man. He was a pharmacologist, a neuro-pharmacologist. BG was a Christian man who accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord. I will miss my good friend BG, but I know he is today in the Lord Kingdom.
