Day 362 after the surgery… Nearly 1 year 😦
I got a P.E.T. scan who revealed infections in the scrotum and a Cystoscopy will be made on Thursday December, 18. After I took antibiotics “Ciproxine 500mg” I feel already much better, but still problems with pain. Hopefully on Thursday they will find the answer about my persistent problems…

Day 330 after the surgery…
The pain is getting stronger again, can’t leave without taking “Diclofenac” medication 😦 Yesterday I made a Scintigraphy with Gallium and today a Scintigraphy with Technetium. I have seen the doctor after the Scintigraphy but she couldn’t tell me yet and told me to wait till mid next week! So next week my house doctor will get the results and me also then, but she asked for probably the necessity for a P.E.T. scan… Wait, see and hope…

Day 285 after the surgery…
As I made recently a colonoscopy I had to visit the specialist (I got a phone call to make an appointment) which I did 2 weeks ago. I got explained that they found a polyp of 2 cm diameter and that the biopsy revealed growing cancer cells in the polyp! I was shocked, but I got told that as long as the cancer cells are ONLY found in the polyps that there isn’t any problem as long as it is not moving into the colon.
I should do now once every year a colonoscopy as a prevention to detect eventually found polyps! But as I am a bit proactive thinking I asked to do the first one already in 6 months, in March 2013.
See below a video on a Colon polyp removal with a colonoscope:
So, that’s meant that I am now a risk patient!!! But as I did on a regular base (every 2 years) since 14 years already a colonoscopy they detected it by time! I suggest anyway to anybody to do a colonoscopy also up from age 40-45, especially men.
First of all I need to get my brain used to that, that’s the difficult part of it, not easy at all…
I am still on the pain as well and hopefully one day doctors will find out from where it does come, not funny at all to live like that 😦
What’s a polyp and what’s a colonoscopy?

Day 272 after the surgery…
There are probably different problems as my house doctor said, problems with the bladder, the back and perhaps also the possibility of an inflammation due to the implanted artificial nets to close the holes in the tissue…
I found out also this on Wikipedia and will ask my doctor(s) about it after the next tests are made: “Neuropathic pain is defined as pain in the sensory distribution of an offended nerve. This may be due to preexisting stretch injury or intraoperative nerve injury. It is often described as stabbing and burning. Nociceptive pain includes somatic and visceral pain. Somatic pain may be due to chronic inflammation from tissue injury and is described as gnawing, tender, and pounding. Visceral pain can manifest as testicular and ejaculatory pain which may be associated with mesh ingrowth into spermatic cord structures…
- Post-operative Inguinodynia from Hernia Surgery
- Inguinodynia as a hernia post-operative chronic pain syndrome may occur due to an assortment of causes including mesh shrinkage, inflammation, scarification, as well as surgical technique.
This above is ONLY something which I will ask the doctor(s) after some tests are made and nothing else would be found, I don’t make a self-diagnostic! But I want to be informed about what is going on and helping myself to get out of this never ending story…
So now on October 17, 2012 I will get a flexible “Cystoscopy” to find out what problems are with the bladder (there are some…) and after that probably also a “Scintigraphy” to find out if and where are some inflammations…
See below some videos about “Cystoscopy”:
Once again, I don’t make a self-diagnostic and videos are ONLY published for my own curiosity (I want to know what’s going on before the intervention…) and visitors could see it also if wanted so…
Day 256 after the surgery…
As already said in previous post there are still some problems of not natural pain to get sorted out! I made already some new scans and also MRI (IRM en français) and the last one was an echo-graph; a control with ultrasonic… Waiting for Thursday to get the report from my medical, but already knowing that there is something strange!!!
To be continued… :(((
Date: April 2012, day 143 after the surgery
I had a new scanner control and everything looks fine, but still pain but only 2-3/10 on the pain scale… The doctor told me that I can work normal again at home and no restrictions anymore on lifting weights, which were restricted to 5kg before!
As I had stomach problems so I made also a endoscopy and the results were that I have a “sliding hiatus hernia” also as other problems with the stomach also; no wonder: 2 years taking strong drugs…
Whats a “sliding hiatus hernia”?
I got some special medication (drugs) and there is no need for a new surgery, more than happy 🙂
Date: March 25, 2012.
I had a new scanner to find out what is going on on February 24, 2012… nothing found, good news! Doctor told me that it is “normal” that it takes that long to recover as I had a big hematoma and that my Inguinal Hernias are dating from very long and that they were scared already, so it was a very difficult surgery… with lots of internal interventions…
I got told also now that I can again work a bit at home and that’s the best news I had for months… The feeling of an “normal” person comes back slowly, LOL 😉 I have a lot of Home gardening to do and also to make renovation of one room at home, this needs now after 2 years get done as it wasn’t possible that long because of my surgeries!!!
Nearly 2 years ONLY allowed to sit close to the computer without any other activities, a hard time… I am very happy, feeling like free again :-))))))))))
But bad news are that I lost my job due to those surgeries, more than 52 weeks on sick-leave in 2 years, but at least I get payed 80% of my last salary from the Employment Office for one year period… while searching with 57 years old a new job, not easy at all… probably mission impossible…
But I use my experience in IT-Security and trying even different ways to find a job over Internet, check out here:
