    Just curious..anyone else had epididymitis?

    I have had it at least three times, two after having two hernias repaired.

    Curious to know whats going on down there...:confused:

    I've had 2 hernias repaired and both times had normal post operative swelling and tenderness. If after your post-op visit (usually10 days) and a 2-3 week o healing time you're having discomfort or maybe epididymitis, check back with your G.P., or surgeon.

    ok?

    I've had it a couple of times too, on my left ball. The epididymis there is now perpetually swollen around the top and side (not excessively, but noticeable). I had two differerent ultrasounds as I thought I had developed cancer there or something, but it turns out the epididymitis caused it.

    Epididymitis is usually a benign condition caused either by a bacterial infection or a non-bacterial inflammation, the latter usually caused by minor trauma or inflammation of other parts of your reproductive organs. The first kind is treated with antibiotics; the second one is treated with anti-inflammation drugs like diclofenac, but usually just gets better with time.

    Yeah - I had chronic epy for a while and haven't had a flare up in 2 years now. I have some scar tissue on the left ball from it. There's an epy forum online somewhere - some guys there are in constant, evil pain and they talk about suicide. It can get really nasty. There is a surgery that can help a lot where they block the nerve somehow.

    If I had big money I'd give a lot for research into it.

    If I were in chronic, evil pain I'd certainly consider removal of the offending organ.

    Or at least I'd beg that my doctor write a renewable prescription for marijuana.

    Demerol would be more like it. There are some who get the offending ball removed, but strangely enough it doesn't always help. The denervating surgery has a very good success rate and you get to keep your boys.

    Had it following a raging UTI a couple of years ago. And yeah, it hurts like a mother... akin to being kicked in the nuts repeatedly! :eek:
