Hey guys! So here is my problem:
I had a Varicocele surgery (embolization) on my right side on the 26th of June. The first week was a bit uncomfortable coz of swelling and bruising. after one week the bruises went away. Then suddenly and after everything seemed to be completely fine i woke up one morning and i had TERRIBLE pain. Like horrible.
Then, I went back to work (not a heavy job thank god) but the pain didn't go away. i went to the doctor and we run some tests to check for infection of the Epidydimytis.
Everything turned to be fine (no infection). But the pain wouldn't go away. The doc said that it might take time and go back home and cool it with ice and hold it high.
My doctor went away for sunmer. So I visited like 5 more other doctors coz the pain was unbearable. They all said that anatomically I'm fine, my blood flow looks ok, and all the organs inside are intact (ultrasound and touching).
Week by week my swelling went away (it isn't coming back). BUT i am still experiencing a HIGH SENSITIVITY of my testicle. I touch it and it still hurts. i cannot sleep on my stomach, I cannot wear tight underwear or at least for the 3 first weeks now it is more bearable but still a lot of pain.
I am still in bed (for 3 weeks) applying ice, i cannot wear pants AT ALL and when i go out and walk a lot my testicle is getting tired easily and hurts again. Did i see improvement in general? YES. How long will it take me until this sensitivity go away?
Meanwhile, I AM 100 % positive that the Varicocele is back coz when i cough i can feel it stronger than ever. but lets say that i skip this and dont mind it because i can fix it with a new surgery.
My main concern is this sensitivity and pain. Has sb else experienced sth like that and when were you able to touch your Testicle again without feeling pain? Do you think it will go away? will i be able to wear my underwear and pants? All the Doctors i have visited don't have clear answers about it.
I am totally freaked out, super depressed and really don't know what to do. I just wanna know how much I still have to be doing all these things.
