Have been on here and read much of the information. Great aid.
Here’s my story. Had my VAS four months ago. Aside from some pain when they started working on the right side and I needed more local the procedure was uneventful.
I started feeling pain in the left testicle about four days out. About three weeks out ultrasound found no abnormalities.
I never really swelled or have that as an issue. The pain has gone down to a discomfort most of the time but about once or twice a week it becomes painful again. Suffered from anxiety and sleeplessness for the first two months but thankfully that’s behind me.
However I still feel the left side alway bothering me. Some days more than others. I can’t wear anything tight or it causes me pain. My boys went surfing about a month ago and the waves caused me pain after I got out of the water.
However I don’t have pain during or after sex. The pain is dull and always there. I can feel and press where it hurts usually.
Maybe someone had had this before and can help me understand if this is perhaps a nerve issue? Doctor P told me to give it a year on a phone consult. But how do these things resolve themselves? I feel utterly useless if I can’t at least try something.
Do I have something that sounds like it would heal itself? Or get better? Or do we just get used to living in pain?
