Well I won't be doing that again! Had transrectal prostate biopsy on Monday, by Wed evening was in hospital with blood infection and also severely painful infection in right testicle. Took three days of antibiotics to get rid of the infection and fever, but I'm told the testicle [swollen to three times normal] will take weeks to return to normal size. No one saying anything about whether it will still work or not. Lovely.
