Hi guys, I’m beside myself right now. I’ve just gone through a week of hell. So I had my vasectomy 6 months ago. I for sure had some congestive pain that was on and off for around 2 or 3 months. The past 3+ months I had felt really good. So two weeks ago I got hit in the nuts by my 3 year old. But the pain went away after 15 min. However, it returned 2 days later and I’ve had it almost constantly for 2.5 weeks now. I don’t know if it’s related to the hit or since it’s 2 days later could just be congestion pain?? I took time off work over the long weekend and literally laid on my back and slept for 4 days straight. When laying doing nothing it was down between a 0-1 in terms of pain. Well ofcourse this week I have to work and now it’s fluctuated between a 2-4 atleast. Feels like a burning and aching. Almost always it’s really good first thing in the morning when I wake up. But by the time I’m in the car and to work it’s back again.
I’ve had SEVERE anxiety/panic attacks from all of this which seems to be making it worse. I finally got some Ativan from my family doctor that I can’t wait to try tonight to let the anxiety down.
I guess my question is to those more experienced: considering my pain is better in the mornings and usually worse in the middle of the day and then a bit better if lying on the couch at night, any ideas what it could be? The urologist thinks I could just be a ‘slow healer’ and I have read some that get better with time but to me there is congestion pain there and maybe the blow created more inflammation that my body just can’t get rid of. I’ve taken a course of ibprofein which did nothing. I’ve waited a few days and now trying alieve. I donno, I just wanted to get this off my chest and get any advice. I don’t want my family and work life to be ruined. I feel such a sense of dread. Like I’m imprisoned.
