Should I ask my doctor for a Cipro alternative?

My doctor prescribed me Cipro (Ciprofloxacin) for a potential prostate infection. This is the first prescription drug I've been on in about 10 years. After reading up on the internet about potential side effects (as well as FDA black box warnings [!]) I have to admit I am rather concerned about permanent damage to weight bearing joints and possible tendon rupture (which can occur long after you stop treatment) There are a bunch of lawsuits going on about it. I do fairly heavy weight training and this makes me nervous. [more inside]

What procedure will kill my eye vein?

I went to a ENT/facial surgeon recently for something unrelated, and I asked the doctor, who also does facial plastic surgery, what I could do about a large vein I have under my right eye. He had me speak with a woman in the office, and she told me, after looking at my vein(s), about a procedure for veins like mine (not spider veins) wherein they inject saline into the vein and then it goes away. What procedure is that? How much does it cost? Do you have a recommendation for a place in Philadelphia, PA? [more inside]

hip doctor

I've had minor scoliosis (crooked spine) all my life, which has caused constant hip/back issues. My weight and posture haven't helped, but for the past few months I've been working on that. Are there some good materials online I can look at to research my condition? What sort of doctor would I talk to this about? What's the best strategy to getting good results from our obtuse medical system? (USA)

what should I ask my doctor?

What should I use my Doctor's Appointment to talk about? It seems like all my problems have gotten better between when I scheduled it (three weeks ago) and today. The appointment is on Monday.
