Day 405 after the surgery… More than 1 year :(

Yesterday I visited my Urology Doctor again, probably for the last time. He told me that there is NO Urology problem and that possibly some nerves were getting touched during the surgery and that’s why there is still some pain. He told me to visit again the doctor who made the surgery, endless story… SO, I will try to get a new appointment to find out what it is definitely  and hopefully it will get sorted out and hopefully I will get some medication to get rid of the pain…

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 272 after the surgery…

Hi,

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…

Other links:

  • 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…
