Question: Swelling and Pain in the Epididymo and Groin

 lofty - Mon Jun 08, 2009 6:33 am

First of all, I'd like to thank this website and all of the other people engaged here.

Let me start with my problem now. I got married about 3 months ago. After one month of my marital life, my wife got painful urination, burning sensation, pain and itching in the genital area and pain during the sex. Soon I got swelling in epididymo. I did not have any other symptoms except once I had pain while discharging and pain in the groin. She was treated but I did not take any treatment. She soon got well but I still had problem so I also visited doctor and he put me on Levofloxacin 250mg before meal twice a day, Nuberol Fort 3 times a day, "SERRATIOPEPTIDASE DS" 3 times a day and "Diclofenac Potassium 50mg" 2 times a day. I took this medicine for 7 days. During all this period I did not have sex. I again went to the doctor and he further put me on Trinidazole BP and SERRATIOPEPTIDASE DS for 3 days. All of my symptoms were gone except the swelling in epididymo. After abstaining from sex for 13 days, I started sex again and the pain hit back in the groin. I then changed my doctor. The new doctor is Urologist and Transplant Surgeon. He advised me renal tract and scrotum ultrasound and urine R/E test. Ultrasound report said " Mild Cystitis" and urine report said " Ph = acidic". The doctor advised me Levofloxacine 500mg twice a day and Vibormycine twice a day. Both medicines were for 10 days. He also prescribed me Voren tablets for pain. During all this medication I had regular sex but all the time, I've been using condoms. I've been taking lots of fluids and urinate frequently. One thing more I must tell you is that my wife is in 14th week pregnancy.

Even taking all this medicine, I still have slight pain which increases and decreases. The last time I visit doctor, he said Im perfectly alright now but the pain is still there in the groin and epididymo and the swelling in the epididymo also exists. He thinks it may because of muscular pain. He prescribed me pain killer only.

I'm so much worried now. Please tell me what more I'm supposed to do. Should I stop sex? etc etc... Urgent replies needed

With Best Regards,

User avatar Hello,Some times even after the infection is controlled muscular pain is quite possible due to mild inflamation of tissue.It should settle in due time and there is nothing to worry.Best wishes.

Dr., how long approximately will the swelling take to subdue?
