For the past two days, something weird has been happening. At least a dozen times during the day I thought I felt my cell phone vibrate but it was always a false alarm. There was never a call. This morning I was in a restaurant and felt it again but my phone was on the table. As near as I can tell the buzzing was coming from inside my perineum behind the scrotum. It was buzzing at the same frequency as my heart beat and feels kind of nice.
Most of you know I weigh my pads every day and the curve has been moving at a glacial pace downward from 450 ml per day in Nov to 300 ml per day last week. Two days ago it suddenly dropped to 240 and yesterday it was 160!!!. Today I am on track for another 160 or so.
The interesting thing is this buzzing. Could it be a piece of scar tissue lodged in my sphincter?
I have a 40 cm long lighted 4 mm fiberoptic borescope camera
that I could use to find out, but I lack the anesthetic, the assistant and the courage. Most importantly, I don't want to mess up anything that might be happening. I am supposed to see the Uro on 4/23 to discuss long range plans for my situation. The timing could not be better.
Has anyone on this site felt a buzzing in your groin before you got dry?
