Dr. Porten is the best I'm very fortunate to have her as my urologist/surgeon. The message center via which I had e-mailed Dr. Porten may not have conveyed my e-mail to her and the shortness of the visit did not give me a chance to ask about whether the generalized itching I still have is related to the bladder cancer.
