Now its years later Don and it would be great if you could share your outcomes. I am a bona fide sufferer. After 3 years of gradual pain escalation due to long commutes, intense sex with new lover, and lifting doing yard work pain finally never went away in both testicles, mostly the left. After 2 yrs of Ibuprofin, my urologist had the offending left testicle removed--months later pain just moved to the right! Only got one left, man.
Three yrs later I then had the denervation and epiditimis removed---after months of bedrest, its now 5 yrs later--and '0' efficacy. At 56 I had to go on SSI disability. I am now 65 and old age is adding insult to injury.
How can phantom pain occur during things like sex or exertion such as lifting a gallon of milk? Phantom pain should not be cause/effect--it's just random correct?
So I have no answers--I live on 300 mgs of Lyrica and take too much Ibuprofin, 800 mgs a day, just to take the friggen edge off. I cannot sit in a chair, which means air travel is murderous, take two days of bed rest to dispel pain from 4 hr flight. Quality of life sucks. Thank heavens I live in a beautiful place, CO, so my life is about lying down and taking in the view when not reading or Netflix. Sorry situation--how about it Don, still suffering after Cryo?
Any thoughts out there? Botox?
