Hi I am new here and was hoping to find some help and support regarding testicle pain.
I was diagnosed with chronic testicle pain 14 years ago and have undergone numerous tests, scans, nerve blocks and surgery, but nothing has helped.
My quality of life is extremely poor as I cant do the simplest of tasks because of the pain, the pain is in my right testicle and goes down my right leg. I cant stand or walk for long, I cant even sit down for too long as the pain gets so bad, I cant even wear jeans or trousers as the seam of the clothes triggers the pain as it rubs on the testicle.
The pain is located at the top and bottom of my right testicle, seems to be the head and tail of the epididymis, it’s very tender and painful to touch. The pain seems to get triggered after ejaculation/having sex, can start as an ache in the right testicle and gets painful and goes down my leg.
My new urologist has recommended Orchiectomy of the right testicle, and I was looking for some advice regarding peoples experiences with loss of one testicle.
Have you guys had any long term pain from having a Orchiectomy?
Have any of you guys gained weight, or lost muscle mass from losing a testicle?
Thank you in advance for any help.
