69. Father of Men’s Health Physiotherapy. Meet Peter Dornan

January 19, 2022

 

In today’s podcast, we interview the ‘’Father of Men’s Health Physiotherapy ‘’– Peter Dornan AM from Brisbane, Australia.

Recently confirmed as the ‘’Champion of Prostate Cancer’’, Peter shares his very personal story - 25 years in the making.

He reveals his battle with a prostate cancer diagnosis as a 52 year old fit, healthy, health professional and the impacts it had on him physically and psychologically at a time when there was minimal support.

Now 77, Peter continues to challenge the status quo and is a world leader in pelvic health issues in men, including pudendal neuralgia and pelvic pain. Not only does Peter continue to work full time, but Peter is also an author, sculptor, saxophonist, and teacher, as well as being Dr Jo’s long-term men’s health mentor.

A softly spoken man – Peter’s dedication to the men’s health field is both inspirational and humbling.

Listen, then look him up and share him widely. An Order of Australia Medallist and Queenslander of the Year 2020… no finer man has graced our podcast series… And he’s even on Twitter!

66: Ball pain, vasectomy, fertility and more with Dr. Trenton Barrett

66: Ball pain, vasectomy, fertility and more with Dr. Trenton Barrett

December 22, 2021

And botox in your penis and bladder?

 

Today, we talk with Dr. Trenton Barrett.

Dr. Barrett is a urologist, with specialty on male genito-urinary complaints as well as sexual health. And his subspecialty interest is in female urology, andrology, and male infertility.

Dr Barrett talks about Azoospermia, which is a medical term used when there are no sperm in the ejaculate, as well as its causes, what can be done for this type of cases, procedures, and more. He also talks about Oligospermia, which is a term for low sperm count and how it's different from Azoospermia.

Dr Barrett also answers the question of whether procedures relating to the scrotum/testes (ie vasectomy) can cause erectile dysfunction or not, and whether varicoceles are the possible reason for pain during sex/orgasm (for those experiencing it). He also brushes upon testicle pains, diagnosis, and its possible treatments (ie botox). Yes, you heard it right, botox can also be injected to the bladder (has been done since the 80's) for overactive bladders!

Further, Dr Barrett and Melissa discuss vasectomies (and even reversals), what's true and what’s not. Spoiler alert - there shouldn't be a crippling pain.

A few more topics discussed are penile implants and injections.

This is a fully-loaded episode with tons of golden nuggets that not only talk about the penis but also the bells around! Have a listen as we believe you will enjoy and learn a lot about these topics!

63. Meet Proctor – learn about pain, suppos, and wild type erections

63. Meet Proctor – learn about pain, suppos, and wild type erections

December 2, 2021

Today, we talk to Proctor.  

Proctor's story also started when he was 18-19 years old. Much like the same with Pierre, Proctor also experienced pain in his perineum... and in his testicles.  

He also went to different doctors, was prescribed with pain medications, and still no explanation with how the pain is occurring. Then he had robotic radical prostatectomy after his Prostate Cancer was picked up by a diligent GP.  

All of these brought Proctor to Dr. Jo and Melissa - and the rest is history. :)  

This episode will not only share Proctor's journey, discuss 'wild type erections' but will also show you the importance of having a very diligent GP.  

Enjoy listening!

62. Pelvic Pain Pierre

62. Pelvic Pain Pierre

November 24, 2021

 

For today's episode, we talk with Pelvic Pain Pierre. 

 

Pierre's story starts when he was 18 years old and he noticed a decrease in his urine flow. 

Two years later he developed groin pain. This was the beginning of Pierre taking tons of different medications as health professionals struggled to find a diagnosis.

 

The pain became more consistent and affected Pierre's life...he noticed the pain would change depending on his emotional state and with activity. Thanks to big flat screen TV's, Pierre was still able to enjoy movies - at home! Because sitting for a long time in a cinema would be uncomfortable and can cause flare ups for Pierre. 

 

Pierre is now 32 years old, married, and still experiences pain. But he's living his life and is NOW getting the help he needs, and can sit longer!

 

To know more about Pierre's story, his journey, what his diagnosis really is, and get an anatomy lesson thrown in click the PLAY button below.

He also talks about rehabilitation, Peyronies, pumps, nerve-sparring vs non-nerve-sparring surgery, the importance of having 2nd opinion after diagnosis, weight, pelvic floor exercises, vibrations, frequency of erections, and that not all porn is bad. He also gives his top relationship tip, that is: to treat your partner like an expensive bottle of wine - savor them.
