Good morning guys. So I have some questions and would like some input. I don’t really have many people in my life to talk to about this and figured a place full of people who have or had similar issues could be a great place.
I’m only one week in to the recovery so I’m not feeling doomed or anything. But it does hurt a fair bit still. The pain I’m having is very similar to pain I had when I had an ingunal hernia years ago. And it also spreads down below in the perineum area. Ice an ibuprofen are helping. But obviously I can’t do that forever and ibuprofen is wrecking my gut. In also hurts if I have to hold my urine for any amount of time. Or to try to pass gas etc…
To further complicate the issue there was an incident during the procedure that’s got me scared and pissed. While numbing my scrotum the doctor pushed all the way through, poked himself then pulled the needle BACK THROUGH me. When he did it he just said “oh damn I poked myself” and asked if I had any known blood-borne diseases. I assured him no and that I’ve been with my wife for over 20 years and we are each other’s only partners ever. He never told me he had to pull back through. Fast forward to Tuesday my wife and I were talking about it and decided I needed to call to make sure I wasn’t at risk. When they finally called back it was him and some type of management. And it was clear to me that he had never reported this incident to anyone. I was told that they would start the procedure for this type of incident immediately. To me had he reported it they would have done that last week. And if he had fessed up I could have started prophylaxis meds just in case. Since it was past 72 hours that would be useless. Part of my question is could him having done that caused him to panic and somehow have rushed and messed up the vas? Would it be appropriate to find another dr and have the whole thing checked out? I’m just at a loss and freaking out all the time.
