January vasectomy (I actually think it might have been a scalpel vasectomy but don’t know)
Pain got extremely bad within 2 weeks so they put my on Bactrim and a 6 day steroid pack.
Pain was still there so they gave me another 2 weeks of Bactrim.
Consulted with second urologist informally who suggested I try ibuprofen for a few weeks. I took 2400mg throughout the day for a week and the pain got so bad I called the original urologist again.
At 2 months post vasectomy he started me on another 6 day steroid pack and 10 days of Levofloxacin (Levaquin).
I’m on my 2nd day of that medication with some mild side effects like having to pee every 5 minutes, back pain, General pelvis aching.
My symptoms this entire time have been swelling of the vas deferens causing testicle tenderness and vas tenderness. My pain hasn’t gone below a 2/10 and when it gets bad is 6/10.
I’ve been told by both urologists that my body is having an inflammatory response. If that’s the case why are they treating me with antibiotics? Is it possible to have an infection with no other side effects like fever?
