Vasectomy :: Acute Pain In Right Testicle And In Right Abdomen

Dec 16, 2015

I had a vasectomy 11 days ago. I rested, stayed off my feet mostly for a few days, used ice packs, all the ordered behaviors. My incision still hasn't healed well despite wearing compression shorts for 9 days. On about day 8 I started applying antibacterial cream and breathable sterile pad taped down over the incision to prevent infection (and was also on antibiotics for a sinus infection). There was no sign of infection, no visible sign of hematoma. But the incision remains a bit raw, like a split lip that seeps. The dissolvable stitches mostly came out within 6-9 days.

However, my right teste or epididymis is extremely sore still (I felt better from day 4-8 except when sitting a lot), swollen and riding high. When I sit upright for awhile at work, I also get an acute pain in my right inguinal area about 6" in from the hip bone. It feels like a nerve issue. It twinges and throbs when I stand and today is even making walking painful.

Any thoughts? Acute epididymitis? Sperm granuloma? Nerve damage? Normal recovery? I had a single-incision closed vas with excision, clips and cauterization.

I agree with the copious comments on the web -- the urologists need to do a FAR better job with the honest assessment of recovery. I was under the impression that this would all be largely resolved within 3-4 days. Instead, the past 3 days just keep getting worse with no clear self-diagnosis. I'm calling my urologist again tomorrow and insisting on a checkup....

Vasectomy :: Significant Bilateral Pain In My Right Testical, Abdomen And Back

4 days after a no-scalpel vasectomy, I have significant bilateral pain in my right testical, abdomen and back. Doc says it is just recovering from the surgery, said I should take 600mg Advil every six hours for 5 days.  I'm worried this is the start of post-vasectomy pain syndrome.  Anybody experience this?

Vasectomy :: Right Testicle Is Sitting Much Higher Than My Left Testicle

I had a vasectomy going on 8 days ago. The procedure was said to have gone well. I bruised quite badly and my scrotum and area up into my groin (mainly right side and above penis) swelled remarkably. The swelling has gone done significantly the last two days and my bruising is looking mildly better. My issue at present is my right testicle is sitting much higher than my left testicle. The left looks to be resting normally, and the right feels almost attached to the base of my penis. There is still some mild swelling above my penis on the right side in the groin. The swelling feels hard in the groin and runs down and meets the top of my right testicle.

you can imagine this is uncomfortable, but not outrageously painful. I can see my mobility being hampered if the right teste does not descend lower in a more normal resting position. Is this a normal experience that eventually resolves itself?

Vasectomy :: Left Testicle Pain / Blood When I Ejaculate

I had a no scalpel vasectomy procedure done on 10/10/14. I have pain in my left testicle when I walk or any pressure at all gets placed on left testicle. I do not feel any pain when I am sitting, but when I first get up and walk I feel pain in testicle and also above testicle on left side. I also have ejaculated 7 times and still have blood in my semen. Should I be worried? My right side is perfectly fine with no pain at all.

Vasectomy :: Don't Go For It - Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome (PVPS)

Sciatica :: How To Cure Acute Pain?

I have been diagnosed with spinal disc herniation on L4 and L5 on my back + spondylolisthesis. I was relatively pain free for about a month until all of the sudden the pain came back a week ago, now stronger than ever. It's typical sciatica pain, shooting down pain from my right lower back all the way to the right ankle. When I sit down it helps but I literally can't walk for more than about 100metres at a time,the pain comes too much. I've already been out of work for the whole week and really can't afford more so I'm desperate for some relief.

I've been to the doctors a couple of times this week. So far they have given me: Arcoxia 90mg (tried that twice, no relief), Naproxen 500mg (no relief), Co-codamol 30/500mg (took three of these one day,no relief) and now I've taken Amitriptyline 25mg at nights. I've slept fine but it has not had any sort of an affect during the day. I haven't taken any of these together though, I mean I've just taken one medicine at a time.

If anyone has ANY idea what could help in this acute pain, I'd really appreciate it! Has anyone tried sea salt with their bath, how does that work? I've heard people have got some help of that. And next time I'm going to my GP (probably in a couple of days), any ideas what medicine I should ask for?

Herpes :: Pain Due To Acute Herpetic Keratitis

This is the rather scary title for Viral Cold Sore Infection (EYES). I have no idea where it came from as I have never had a cold sore ever. I only know that it is extremely painful. It started 12days ago,and I just thought I had probably got a bit of gardening debris in the eye and used Optrex to soothe it, By Thursday it was very sore bloodshot and the lids were a little swollen .So I rang the GP for an emergency visit I met a locum, obviously newly qualified. I explained that there was a lot of pain under my upper lid. She duly looked at my eye which she said was perfect .so ,i tried again saying it felt as though there was a razor blade under the lid She lifted the lid and said she couldn't see anything and to come back if it got worse It did get worse over the next Three days. so Monday morning I went to where I should have gone in the first place, the Eye clinic at the hospital  It opens at 8-30,I wa there at 8 as I know it gets very busy. Duly seen and given drops and a thorough  looking at ,and he told me the reasons and even bothered to show me the pictures ,looked like three, ( yes I have three of the blighters  squiggles gave me some eye drops and an appointment for next week. It is now Wednesday and eleven drops later....

Gastroenterology :: Acute Pain And Swollen Large Intestine

My 14 year old son was in the hospital for 3 days and they could not figure out what was wrong with him.  When I took him to ER, he had been vomiting and his diarrhea had blood in it.  They did a CT scan and told me he had to have surgery because he had appendicitis.  Then when referred to a surgeon he told us that it wasn't his appendix that his large intestine is swollen and therefore his appendix is swollen.  In the meantime my son was in so much pain the throwing up stopped however the diarrhea with blood continued.  They just started him on liquids and pain medication.  Then, they collected 3 stool samples to test for colitis, and different bacteria's.  Everything came out negative.  Then a GI doctor checked my son and reviewed all test and told us that he had food poisoning and that he would have to let it take it's course.  So, after 3 days they released my son from the hospital and told me to just give him Tylenol for the pain.  To make sure he drinks plenty of liquids and he has to be on a lactose free diet for two weeks.  Well my son is home and he is still in pain but the diarrhea has stopped.  I left the hospital frustrated because they ran so many test and could not tell me what was wrong.  They just said that he will be in pain for a couple of more days because his large intestine was swollen.  Can you help me or give me some follow up advice because my son still does not look well and he still gets sudden pains that come and go.  Could he have Crohn's disease?

Thyroid Disorders :: Goiter - Acute Pain And Fever

So for the last few weeks or longer I was sporadically feeling a lumpiness in my throat, especially while sleeping.  I thought it was how I lie in bed while reading.  Then this lumpiness, this weird feeling that isn't exactly painful just awkward and uncomfortable is a daily annoyance.  So bad in fact I felt nausea from the feeling in my neck.  Sort of like something is rolling up and out; of course nothing ever did.  So now this feeling his constant I feel like I'm either vomiting or choking.  Lovely!  So I also have asthma so my breathing is not 100% in the first place, add tightness to my throat and what? Full blown panic attack sure, lets not sleep tonight.  So I finally drag my feet to a Dr.  guess what PA says I have an enlarged thyroid, i.e. Goiter.  So now I am to have a thyroid ultrasound blood work.  Now this goiter is extremely uncomfortable, borderline painful; especially when I swallow, cough or yawn (oh yawning *****).  Is this simply because I am now aware of this enlargement in my body. The pain and discomfort seemed to become more acute during a 24 hour fever spike, which is what motivated me see a Dr in the first place.

Colonoscopy :: Worried - Pain In My Right Lower Abdomen?

I've been having pain in my right lower abdomen for some time now and did some tests and all seem clear. Today I went to a surgeon who tested me and said all feels very normal. Since my dad had colon cancer at 56 he suggested I do a colonoscopy just to make sure there is nothing. I need to wait till the 20th April and I'm already freaking out. Will they tell me immediately after the colonoscopy if something is wrong? I'm 39 with 2 kids and always assume the worst that I have cancer.

Kidney :: Lower Abdomen Pain Under Ribs

I went to the hospital a week ago and was diagnosed with a UTI. Since then I've continued to have sharp pain in the lower left area of my abdomen, under my ribcage (and just general side pain and some bloating)- and a dull pain in my back. Along with that, for the past couple of days I've felt nauseous off and on, weak, extremely tired, and today I felt like I was close to passing out when I was in a store. Could this still just be the UTI? Or possibly now moved on to a Kidney Infection, or... Thoughts?

Pancreatitis :: Back / Abdomen Pain Under Rib Cage

I'm not sure where to start. A lot has been going on in the past month. It all started when I started to feel like I had a couple of drinks when I had not. I was able to calm myself down because I thought I might be having some sort of anxiety attack. Long story short the symptoms did not go away. So I saw my doctor last week. With my vague answers to his questions he mentioned he wanted to do some further testing. Part of the testing was blood work and a 24 hour urine. That was last Wednesday. I had the blood draw on Thursday and turn my 24 hour urine and on Friday morning. It just so happened that I started my period on Friday. Its normal for me to feel a lot of lower back pain during my periods. this time is a little different. I started to feel the lower back pain then the pain moved to my upper abdomen on the left side. Then the pain moved to my lower right side of my back. now the pain is back on the left side of my upper abdomen. Of course everything that I have been reading leads to one thing... Pancreas. after calling my doctor my blood work has come back normal. However my urine test has not come back yet. They told me it could take up to a week. In the past this pain may have been here and it has gone away. But because of how much reading I have been doing on whyI have been feeling funny I've noticed the back pain and the abdomen pain a little more.

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon. However I'm really scared.

Prostatitis With Symptoms Of Blood In Urine And Lower Abdomen Pain

I'm a 18 year old guy with no previous illnesses of any kind, don't drink/smoke, etc. Except not exercising and sleep irregularly, I'm pretty okay with lifestyle.

I had the symptoms of a UTI one day (first time in my life) with symptoms of blood in urine and lower abdomen pain. My doctor diagnosed it as prostatitis and gave me antibiotics for a month.

I never had the symptoms again since the first day of antibiotics, but now that I'm 3 weeks in, I'm feeling new symptoms like hesitation to go urinate, want to go urinate more often, etc.... Maybe it's my mind playing with me, but I FEEL like my bladders feel a little weird. Like, it feels... full? There's no pain at all, except perhaps minor irritation in my testes.

So now I'm really wondering if I should go see the doctor again, mostly in fear of potential kidney damages (urea poisoning a possibility?) I don't have insurance, but won't hesitate to stomach the bill myself if need be. Since I don't want to end up in the ER, or die...
