Do you know of a support group in the area? I thought I was doing fine for a long time (why I haven't logged on in so long). Now I'm realizing that it's not going to just go away....

I am not super close, but I live in Springfield. There is a support group that meets here the third Monday of every month, but I know it would be a drive. I wish we had a support group in every town in the country!!

If I didn't work until 7 on Mondays I would definitely make that drive!! If I can find people around the area of Joplin, I would be open to forming a support group I think that we can support each other the best

I live in Neosho. I would love to get together. Do you have a Uro in Joplin?

What did your uro do for you? I was diagnosed in 07 at UMKC and have had problems since. I wish I would go into a remission or something. My uro in Springfield just did a hydrodistention and I am feeling better.
