Day 445 after the surgery… More than 1 year
The pain is increasing again and I am now on pain scale level 6/10, not knowing what is happening!??? My moral is (???), need to fight hard to net letting me go down! It’s too long anyway, I need to upgrade my courage as I start to rant too much on Social-Media, not good 😦
I am NOT anymore the person I was before the operation, I wish to become the same again as I start to hate myself for what I am now (mentality)! No life quality anymore with chronically pain, it starts slowly to destroy me, even spouse told me that I changed too much; not good at all to hear it from her…

Day 443 after the surgery… More than 1 year
I finished all the tests on Urology and the doctor says that there are no Urology problems! OK, good news, but still on the pain which increased again! I am now on 4-5/10 on the pain scale. The doctor told me that I should visit again the surgery doctor, probably there were some nerves touched during the surgery. Will the pain ever go away or must I stay for the rest of my life with it, not feeling confident at all anymore…
I had also a colonoscopy again, 6 months after the last check up as on the last check up a polyp from 2 cm in diameter (0.8 inches) was found. A new polyp was found with already 1 cm diameter (0.4 inches) after only 6 months! On March 19, 2013 I will know then the results…
Never ending story, to be continued…

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 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…
