As the title of my post says, I’m in pain.
Everything seemed to go okay during surgery. He numbed it and I felt no pain. Took maybe 20 minutes overall, and I’m pretty sure he cauterized instead of using clips. I laid up as much as possible over next 48 hours and iced. Did not have much pain in my testicles other than an ache, and had some burning/sharp type pain up both sides of groin that started almost immediately. (I assume this is the path of the vas?).
5 days in, the nausea started. I’ve been nauseated 9 days, and I’d say most of the day it’s a low 2-3, when I wake up it’s much stronger. (Note, at this point I had not ejaculated and had done no lifting at all).
My testicles are not in much pain, but if they get pressed on, I get that nauseated feeling even greater.
The main thing is my abdomen. It feels tight, like it’s being stretched. I have a sharp pain in my groin on the left side, exacerbated by leaning over or lifting my left leg. Sometimes it happens on the right side, but not as often. (I assume this is pain from the nerves that run alongside the vas). Sometimes the pain shoots into my stomach, sometimes down my leg.
And just to be clear, I’m not trying to jump the gun here, just trying to find some information. I know I’m early. But my Dr. said he has no clue what’s happening and has never heard of nausea as a complication. So I’m trying to get to the real truth.
Do I need a second opinion? Take anti-inflammatories? Lay up for several days? See a urologist for a second opinion? Wait it all out? I’m lost on what steps to take.
Thanks so much. This seems like a very caring group.
