I have an appointment at Johns Hopkins in Monday to go over options for BPH. Has anyone had any experience at this clinic?
AT one time, Hopkins was famous for prostate problems; I do not know about now. I was there years ago and had two prostate biopsies performed. The first one found pre-cancerous cells and the follow up one did not find any. Since that time, I have been going to the VA Hospital in Martinsburg, WV.
At Johns Hopkins they gave me absolutely no sedation for the biopsies and one lobe was very sensitive - inflamed and really hurt to be biopsied. A few yeas later, I had a biopsy at the VA and asked them for IV sedation. They said "Sure man, we can do that for you. No cancer found in that one either. It has been years since I have been to Hopkins but I am still in their system so I thought I would consult with them. I believe they have a PAE study ongoing. I have also gone to Inova in Alexandria and have had a consult there. I am going to take my time and get more than one opinion on the best procedure for me. This forum has been very helpful to me. I have a CT Urogram and will have a 3T MRI on CD for them to evaluate so they will have plenty to go by.
