I just got my prostate checked... for infection that is what they think it is ... since I am so young...
Here is my worry..

Have anyone here had similar symptoms to this...

Pain between the Anus and Scrotum
Pain in testicles
Lot of pain in upper groin area
Bladder control problems
Can not empty bladder
Does not hurt to pee or burn...
Hard time to start to pee sometimes a hurry to get it out...
weak stream
pee a lot at night.. when I should be asleep
Hurts more at night...


The docs put me on some antibiotics this has been getting worst for months... Was on them 5 maybe 6 days pain got so bad I went to the hospital they put me on some broad spectrum Antibiotics
Well it has been almost 2 weeks and that pain is still bad the pee is coming out in greater amounts... there is times were my shorts are wet... and I did not sneeze or fart just all of a sudden you have to pee and out it comes...

I went for an Ultra sound test and it has me worried....

I filled my bladder and she said it was very full... so than she said pee... I did I thought I finished than when she looked again she told me that it was more than half full...
Out of the corner of my eye as she is take pics she shakes her head just sutler like .. not once but twice... I said can it tell you how much pee is in there and she says yes there is a lot...
than she takes more pics and than asks how old I am and shakes her head again.. just slightly.. and than does the testicles and than after a few more pics she did it again... I asked is there something wrong.. she says I can;t tell you...
and than that was it...

The antibiotics are not working some symptoms have improved were other have gotten worst... My ESR is well above 60 that mean inflammation in the body it should be around 16...
Cancer is well logged on both sides of the family...

Me grandfather had horrible Cancer me mom Dad of the Bladder and problems with his prostate... and me mom she has lymphoma cancer... me uncle on me dad side also died of cancer plus more...

but being on these meds it seems things are getting almost worst not better... I think there is less pain because I cut back heavily on fluid intake... I went from 4 or 5 liters a day to 2 or 3 liters a day...

I am tired I being sick I have been sick for more than 10 years will stomach problems..

I was just wondering if any of you had anything like this...

I am young 32 almost 33 but like I said I have been sick for a long time... CBC count has always been higher than normal... where it should be around 4 it is around 14 to 18 been like that for the last 10 years...


Thanks for your help....

Has your Urologist given you any feedback on what he thinks it is? After the Ultarsound was there a followup with Doctor to go over the results? If not happy with your Doctor addressed your pain and concerns my suggestion is seek another opinion.

As you can see from my signature I am young as well, where I feel very blessed that I got tested due to my family history and it was detected and treated where if I didnt my treatments options later would be drastically different.

Good luck, and be persistent on finding your answers what is going on with your pain.

Hi Mr. Boom,

I agree that you should see a urologist soon. The difficulty urinating along with the groin pain are suggestive of kidney stones and perhaps and obstruction of the urniary tract caused by the stones. The obstruction will cause inflammaiton and infection which will lead to the pain you feel. I am not a medical person so you should seek help from someone who is qualified.

Good luck and best wishes for a positive diagnosis.

Hi,

I would echo earlier sentiments. Definitely go to a Urologist you are comfortable with. If necessary go for a second opinion. He will probably want to do a cystoscopy which allows the doctor to look at the interior lining of the bladder and the urethra and see what's really going on. I had one too. It was uncomfortable but not much pain. Take care of this and put in behind you. You are young and have a lot to live for.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
