Testicular pain

Postby tunedright on Sun Nov 04, 2018 6:18 am

So yesterday I woke up and the last thing I thought my day would consist of was emergency surgery on on my testicles. But that is what happened, I am 19 years old as of posting this, I have had testicular pain in the past at age 15-17 but being embarressed I would wait as long as I could before telling my mom to take me to the doctor. But back then the pain was managabe and would dissapear before getting an ultra sound/medial attention, this time I had a feeling it was different, I woke up at 11am and the pain wasnt bad but I was able to notice it. I had a swollen tender testicle which honestly has happened maybe 15 times over the years and usually goes away so I tried to ignore it, I woke up and was in a really bad mood and had a few things to do I wasn’t thrilled about so.. I was really mad I had pain down there and really wanted to pretend it wasn’t there so I made a cup of coffee and by the time I sat down and took a sip It really started to hurt, more than any other episode of this before and was also making my gut and left leg hurt so I instantly hopped in my car and rushed to the ER by the time I got there I either wanted to scream or cry in pain. they had me sit there for the longest 15 minuites of my life before laying me in a bed onsome t3s (which did nothing) the pain was so intense nothing I have ever felt before and I had an ultra sound in this pain! , then they told me Im going into surgery and that I might lose my testicle, and started me on some morphine or somethingwhich actually Really helped and rushed me to emergency surgery I had testicle torsion.., then I woke up. And it was as quick as that. the whole day was a blur now Im sitting here a day later with a sack swollen like a tennis ball all stitched up and I still cant believe how fast it all happened. I was an hour away from my testicle dying, so dont hesitate or be embaressed I had to show my junk to 30 random people yesterday and being in that much pain I was happy they were looking at it.
