NC -- yes, it's like napalm going through your urethra!!~!
I have a funny story for my first one ... now, it's funny!
It was February, and we had a lot of snow. The roads had about 10cm of slush. We were very poor, and couldn't afford a taxi to the hospital. I had a little rickshaw that hooked up to the back of my bicycle that I used for transporting my sculptures (used to sell at the local artist's fair). So my ex hooked up the bike to the rickshaw. He helped me downstairs and into my "carriage", and covered me with blankets. It was a couple of kilometres, and he cycled us through the slush. The folks at the hospital got quite a surprise to see us pull up! :)
Leo - ugh, that sounds horrible! Yah, Cipro, that's the ticket.
The ibuprofen goes well with it, as the dr. explained that even after you get started on the infection healing, you may have more inflammation. I was amazed last week that within 6 hours, I was feeling no pain. MAJIK!
