I am a bus pass surgery patient of Apollo since April 2004. At the time of surgery projection in left side Punic region was noticed and Urologist Dr. Murali advised treatment for prostrate also later.
Since there was no big obstacle I and family members ignored the treatment for the prostrate and Hernia.yesterday urologist Explained the need to treat for the Prodtrste before Treatment of Hernia. Both Doctors discussed and decided to treat for the Prostrate just before hernia treatment for both sides and Bariatric treatment to safe guard the body from the after effects of long time Diabetes and other health problems taking into account my age of 75.
