LATEST POST AT THE END OF THREAD. Hello again everyone. I have returned in a quite panic. So its almost 10 months since my surgery and my recovery has been extremely successful. Im due another PSA this week. Last one was <0.03. UPDATE: MY PSA CAME BACK AT 0.04 SO IS NOW DETECTABLE ON uPSA TEST. I remain fully continent and the old tin whistle is still playing tunes. In that regard I started off running with 80% erections without viagra. This has not improved but Im not complaining and I still hold out hope that there is some nerve healing that may enable me to discard the blue pills all together in the future. I make a point of having sex with and without the pills although the later takes more effort.
Im still vegan and coming up to Christmas I had been walking, hiking, swimming and attending yoga and looking forward to a lovely family time compared to the surreal experience of the year before when I was just diagnosed. The thing is I started getting a dull ache around the 22nd of December in the lower left side of my abdomen and in my left testicle. It felt exactly the same as it did in early recovery with some slight dribbling after urinating. Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in!!!!
Aside from a quite panic about
cancer returning I still had a great Christmas and tried to think of other things it might be. The pain in my testicle has gone but the ache remains and gets worse when I over do it. I will be getting my scheduled appointment with my uro on the 23rd so I have been holding out til then. The GP will only go over the things it might be and I already have a fair idea what he'll say so I haven't went to see him.
Here are my guesses (hoping of course that its not recurrence). Firstly I think I may have strained down there after splitting wood and carrying heavy loads of wood up steps. Secondly the strain might be a small hernia. I've had one before on the opposite side way before my cancer journey and it feels similar but there is no obvious bulge down there that i can feel and I could with the hernia. Thirdly I was wondering could it be blocked semen trying to get to the bladder as it was in my testicle as well but has since just been in my abdomen exactly were my surgery recovery ache had been!
I'd really like your thoughts on it guys. Has anyone ever had something return like this and what has been the outcome? Happy New Year and thanks in advance.
