    Having prostate "problems" a close friend shared with me his recent experience with  examinations' and recommendations' from Urologist Dr Fabian Gargcia at QC and a US, Dr Mark Christ in Miami. My friend who frequently travels between MX and the US wanted to obtain a second option for this "delicate" situation. His Blood work indicated a high PSA of 39

    My friend had previously seen Dr Fabian about 6 weeks ago and was prescribed a course of medicines, which did not improve my friends problem of frequently wanting to pee and alway having drible left in his bladder. Latter whilst visiting the US  he was able to obtain a Ultrasound of his bladder. This test  help's your doctor see how much urine you have left in your bladder after you urinate.

    Last week my friend revisited Dr Fabian informing him the course of meds had not improved his problem and shared with him the results obtained from the Echogram, a volume of 50ml, which is considered to be adequate/good, bladder emptying. Regardless of these results Dr Fabian next recommendation was to do a APE which includes scoping your urethra and also taking a biopsy of the prostate, and was enthusiastic to set up an appointment. My friend not so eager indicated he would think about.

    This week, fortuitously, my friend was able to see a Dr Christ in Miami, who listened to my friends experience and saw the EGM report and the previous meds prescribed by Dr Fabian. As was expected Dr Christ gave my friend a digital rectal exam, confirmed some abnormalities and possible a presence of cancer.

    Dr Christ recommendation. Not to do any biopsy or intervention , which would required my friend stop one of the meds he is taking for heart related issues. He prescribed the following meds;  Flomax (Tamsulosion) and Avodart (Dutasteride) "come back to see me in November" ....."Because many prostate cancers grow so slowly an older man you have little concern that you may die from it"......"and take care as you cross the road you could get run over by a bus"!! 

    Oh and my friends age ....... 91 years old, (young)

    My prostrate experience.

    I was having prostrate problems.

    I saw Dr. Fabian at Quality care as he had been recommended by neighbours but I was not impressed by him. I decided to return to Canada where it would all be free. In Canada after a bit I found a GP who was taking new patients and then he found a Urologist. She impressed me as she had done over 200 Turp operations (the standard operation for prostrate relief including one on the friend I was staying with in BC). Finally a date was set for the opration-months away so I returned to Mexico. When I returned to BC for the operation was the day Covid started to flare up so all elective surgery was cancelled so I returned to Mexico. Someone recommended Dr Daniel Hernandez at Lakeside clinic in Riberas. After having some ultrasound tests done in Chapala he said I was due for a Turp operation. (he had done over 800-including his father's) He suggested a small clinic in Guadalajara that was very professionally run and had a small flow of customers (a Covid concern) A neighbour drove me to the clinic from SJC and then came back and picked me up the next day. My room there was private with it's own bathoom, a TV, AC, food service and a window. Friends insisted that I stay at their casita in the Raquet Club for recovery (the husband had had a Turp operation and was familiar with catherers and the lady of the house had been a nurse) for a number of days. After 5 days Dr. Hernandez drove out from Gudalajara to remove the catheter (it only took a few minutes). Great service and help and a lower price than Dr. Fabian at Quality Care.

    4 years later my plumbing is still working perfectly

    I already told you that. But some generic number they assign will not read like what I stated. How many times do you need to be told that?

    I have had an RFC nuumber for 16 years- I run a business and pay taxes. There is nothing for me to "get"- I don't use facilitators, I know how this stuff works.

    Before I had an RFC, yes my bank assigned a generic number that looks nothing like an a real RFC- it doesn't have your initials or birthdate. When I got an RFC, I gave it to my bank and they changed the generic one to my real one.

    I have had an RFC number for 12 years.

    Very clear and  informative video, aside from his advice to just pop into a SAT office. You can't get an appointment these days.

    You have to wonder how corect his information is.

    Its going to get confusing. A month ago a bought a new car, they wanted my RFC so gave it to them, yet they said it was not correct and then used "another" one. I checked the government website using my CURP number and the RFC I originally gave them is correct. BBVA has the same number as I have investments with them. Once the dust settles and if this is still a mess, well not that I want to but I would get Spencer's office involved.

    Confusion, where can we find out what is true

    When you order from Amazon.com you are asked which address you want to use.  Click on the MX address for your current order.  We have 5 addresses listed on our Amazon.com address and have had absolutely no problems changing between them depending on where we actually want order delivered.   If you want to cancel you better do it soon before it is in process to be shipped.

    I have 4 addreses listed it insists my Canadian one can't be deleted.

    After you sign into your Amazon account (I sure hope you sign out after ordering), click on your name and a drop down menu appears. First, click on My Account and a drop down appears on that too. Click on orders to show what's happening and you should be able to cancel it IF it hasn't already shipped. Also, you can click on addresses and add or delete an address.

    It won't let me delete some out of date addresses.

    I received an email from Amazon confirming my order. Of course they suggested I buy several related things-which I did.

    But I still want to cancel. They have not posted charges to my CC.

    Of course you can create a clothesline with regular rope, attaching the ends to something, that's a no-brainer, and I'm not sure what it has to do with clothes blowing off the line. 

    A pulley line is very convenient. I brought all the parts from Canada years ago. The pulleys, the piece that holds the two ends of the line together, that has a ratchet you can tighten up, and the piece that rides out on the line that keeps the line from sagging. And yes, mine is high above the ground, twice my height- I can just stand on my patio, which is a meter above ground level, and reel it out. 

    When I bought it, I saw lots of cheapo versions with plastic parts, but mine are all metal. Bought at Canadian Tire. 

    You can definitely get the type of cable that is normally used- metal core with plastic outer, in Mexico, and you can also buy pulleys, so I would think one could fashion something similar on their own.

    Here's my set-up.

    That looks a bit iffy to me

    When ordering from Amazon or Amazon, Mexico, it is easier and more convenient to have things delivered to iShop then you can pick up at your convenience. You do not have to have a box there, just pay 30 pesos per package received. I have multiple addresses stored in my account depending on to whom I want it sent. iShop is one of them.

    I used iShop several years ago to receive things from Amazon. Then I returned to Canada and ordered several things form Amazon to be shipped to a Canadian address. Now when I try to order from Amazon they insist that I have 2 default shipping to addresses-one in Canada and one in Mexico-anything from Amazon wil probably be rejected  at both addresses. I cannot correct that so I think I will just cancel all my recent Amazon orders and try eBay maybe, or try Home Depot in Guad.  eBay seems to be  connected to Amazon in Mexico. How do you cancel things ordered on Amazon.com.mx?
