Hi Sir,
I am feeling little discomfort in lower abdomen area. Last night I masturbated and tried to go for toilet. As it was not coming that easily, I tried to squeeze little hard to make sure my bladder was empty. Now toilet is coming good. I don't know if I can squeeze like that or not. I had alcohol also last night, in case if u should know. Please suggest me.

Dr Ganapathi Krishnan is accommodating, patient and very kind. He gave me a fair hearing without being in a rush to get rid of me. He wasn't distracted and gave me and my condition his full attention. Dr Ganapathi Krishnan is accommodating, patient and very kind. He gave me a fair hearing without being in a rush to get rid of me. He wasn't distracted and gave me and my condition his full attention. He is thorough in his examination and was thoughtful in prescribing medicines. I felt better right after talking to him - what the meds may have done was an added bonus [except the cough syrup that I loved]. Nice to see Doctors who prescribe medicines basis need. Dr Krishnan's is extremely clear with his communication and has no airs of being the big man. He attempts to solve the problem with the patient and that's what I feel makes him so original. The other thing about Doctor Krishnan is how he suggests a solution while also respecting the patient's opinion - I found that awesome. He gave me his view of the root cause of my condition and 2 possible solutions to fix my problem. He went ahead to break the solutions down and suggested the best of the 2 considering my current situation. Such detailed review is very encouraging. Dr Krishnan was open to hearing my thoughts on the alternate therapies [home remedies] I was on, to improve my condition and was interested in knowing how it helped. His genuine interest in me as a person, calm and charming persona and a totally down to earth personality *** **** *** *** ** *** **** ******* **** **** ****
Thank you and yes, I would recommend Dr Krishnan for anyone who is in need of some well-rounded and holistic consultation.
