So, third day of Honeymoon in Taiwan comes around and I wake up for my morning relief, and damn does it hurt. Being the "tough guy" i am i've decided to wait until monday the 17th when i am back in UT to see a doctor at the government hospital. Can't afford a trip to a Urologist here in Taiwan so was wondering if any of my fellow expats know about any good pee pee doctors. Nothing serious yet, no blood or other ickiness, just a general sting at the start of the stream, and a painful twinge when walking around for the day. My friend suggested i just get some antibiotics when i get back into Bangkok, but im the sort who automatically starts Googling Pee Pee cancer and manages to convince himself he's already got it lol.
I recently had a similar issue. I saw a urologist at Bangkok Hospital who seemed well educated and knowledgeable. I was in touch with my doctor in the U.S., and he asked me to get certain tests and send the results to him. Doc at Bangkok Hospital ordered the same tests before I mentioned them, which gave me some confidence in him. Dr. Siripong Kongsanoon. He's there only three days/week, and only for a few hours/day, IIRC. He speaks reasonably good English; but his accent is so thick that it can sometimes be hard to understand him, so it might not hurt to take someone with you who's bilingual.
Agree, sounds like a wee dose of NSU (too much work makes willie a sick boy) go to a local clinic and get a jab of antibiotics, if not clear in 3 days then maybe time to see the PeePee Doc.
