I just rechecked my records. Ultrasounds have never found any epididymal cysts in my history.
I’ve had three ultrasounds in my life.
First was 4+ years pre vas. Findings were left varicocele, and bilateral hydrocele’s.
Second was 7-8 months after my first reversal. Findings were left varicocele only.
Third was 7 months after my second reversal, and 30 days post varicocele embolization. Findings were, left varicocele only.
I have no idea what it is I am feeling. The main tini one that gives me grief fairly regularly seems more like a cyst (more homework required). It resides mid to high point left epi.
I’d been thinking this was a tini hydrocele for many years now, but I’ve questioned my reasoning about what this is in the past, and I’m not thinking it’s a hydrocele anymore. I did not have this tini hotspot pre vas.
As of more recently, I am noticing several other tini, hard objects that are not in the same area of my epi.
I do get pressure pains, and what feels like a swollen epididymal head on the top of the same testicle sometimes, and have for years post vas. It’s never shown up on ultrasound as anything out if the ordinary, which is quite common for guys with congestive pvps.
A varicocele can give off sensations, and pains similar to congestion, which further complicates my story. I don’t recall experiencing anything like congestion pre vas, and I was pretty much pain free for several years pre vas.
Meh, I’ve always had a complicated story, and these new lumps, n bumps are making it more complicated
