New to the group. First post. Let me first say I am only 2months in post op and am just going to say how strong some of you with chronic pain are and I can easily see how easy it is to be beyond frustrated/depressed with PVP however I’m trying my best to be positive and will do my best to put some good energy into this forum!
Amazing that my Uro basically told me he’s only had one patient ever that ever had chronic pain and after the ultrasound he told me it’s just inflammation and it will go away…they are quick to shoo me away as if it’s all mental. On anti-inflammatory meds and seeking 2nd opinion. I feel partially to blame…first week in was in no pain, went hard at gym, had severe pain, went away, got back in gym and boom back to square 1. Now I basically do nothing and have a pretty constant twinge down there. A few questions-
For those that have pain, mine feels mostly like a tingling sensation. Pain 2-5. Right testicle is Very sensitive to touch. Anyone mostly feel tingle/slight burn sensation? Obviously seems like a nerve issue …but curious if this is a common feeling for pain sensation and if there is any correlation to what’s happening down there.
During the day I’m mostly busy and if I try hard not to focus on it, I can get down to a 1 on pain scale, although today is a 4. Question is how do you guys sleep? I feel like every position is uncomfortable and wake up with some shooting or tingle pain. I have not slept good in 2mo post op. Would love to find a remedy so I can mentally feel good to take on pain during day.
