Someone I know who is 80 years old told me he went to his physician because he was having trouble urinating. “I went to him and he told me I have prostate problems. I had to go to him 5 times before he fixed the problem. Now I have a good flow. But every time I went to see him he would ask me if I could get an erection. I can’t remember how long it’s been since I had an erection. I finally asked him, ‘Doc, if you could get me to have an erection, what the heck am I supposed to do with it?'”
I guess we need to keep in mind what our patients’ needs really are.
