Nerve pain in testicles

Edited , 2 users are following.

I have had testicular pain in both sides for around 20-months – primarily on the left side. It was discovered that I had three inguinal hernias pressing inward, damaging the nerves going to the testicles. I had the hernias removed, but nine months later, I am still experiencing pain. I can go pain-free for a few days, then experience pain shooting into the testicle and pain in the inner thigh.

I had several nerve block shots that didn’t work. And also had pelvic floor therapy. I have tried everything from diets to shots to different sitting positions – nothing worked.

It was recommended to me to do the microscopic denervation of the spermatic cord. I had this procedure done on March 29, 2021 – ( I am writing this response on April 19, 2021). So far, the procedure has not worked. I have more pain in my testicle than ever before. Pain to the slightest touch – sitting down and standing up hurts – because my testicles are moving.

I had an ultra-sound done, and thankfully there is no sign of anything wrong with the testicle – however, I am still having incredible pain.

I could option to remove the testicle, but there is no guarantee that the pain will be gone. Plus, it would be removing a healthy organ and complications with testosterone. It doesn’t make sense; the denervation was to stop the pain signal – but it seems worst.

I don’t know if anyone else has had this problem – or has solutions on what to do. I am open to any suggestions.

    Surprised you havent had a reply to this post. I am not an expert but have suffered from scrotal pain for 7 years and spoken to dozens of fellow sufferers. I am yet to speak to anyone who has found relief from orchidectomy so I would strongly advise against it. In fact a few I've spoken to have actually become worse.

    Are you in the UK or US?
