Patient discussion about pathophysiology

Q. What is the best pathophysiology of colorectal cancer. The pathophysiology just has to be brief and concise. It also has to include nursing considerations for the patient.

A. i'm not sure i understand your question...do you mean what is the best treatment for colorectal cancer? patophysiology is the changes the tissue acquired. if you'll give me more details on what you are looking for i'll be more then happy to help you.

Q. I started to suffer from erectile dysfunction? Why is this happening and what can I do to treat it? I am a healthy 52 year old. I have hypertension but i take pills to treat it and my levels are around 130/80. except that I am at great shape. In the last few months I feel that a problem in my sex life. I want to have sex but i can't due to erectile dysfunction. What can be the reason for this? and more important what can I do?

A. get rize2 it lasts about 4 days,and all you have to do is think about sex

Q. Im a 29 yr old male that has pain after masturbation seems like the longer i go without the better I feel? Should I not masturbate at all? I have had 2 urethral scricture surguries and my doctor he seen no reason for the pain. I feel less of a man because I want to have a healthy sexual relationship with my partner. Should I quit for a long period of time like 6 months and see if the condition will go away? Do you think I may have imflamation or cause damage to urethra from masturbation? Thanks for your time

A. Hi! My guess would be that the pain you are feeling is being caused by scar tissue that has built up from the surgeries that you've had and when you ejaculate that tissue is being forced to stretch in order to allow the ejaculate to pass through the urethra.My ex Husband had something similar after his vascectomy.
