I'm 44 and married, about 3 years ago I noticed a slight discomfort when I ejaculated, the pain came and went over the next few months but I thought nothing of it really. I had a vasectomy when I was 34 and I had some pain and discomfort for months after that, so I put it down to that. I still (can i admit this), and all through adult life get 'wet dreams'. These have been somewhat uncomfortable since my vasectomy, with a slight stabbing feeling as it's happening.
In the last couple of years I have had two cases of injuring a testicle, because of bending down awkwardly or getting out of a chair. Nothing long lasting, but hurted like crazy at the time and for a couple of hours after.
Back in November 2019 my symptoms really kicked in. Initially a general discomfort in my plumbing. That evolved to pain on ejaculation, and the golfball feeling between my testicles and bottom.I have never had pain on urination, or any kind of discharge. I feel like I was urinating more though.
I Went to doctors, had an exam and bloods and urine taken. I Sent off a sperm sample too. All came back negative/normal. Doctor put me on Ofloxacin . This worked really well. 2 x 200mg for 1 month. About 10 days after the course finished, I could feel a growing pain in my right testicle, it got gradually worse and I went to see doctor again. Rectal exam was very uncomfortable this time. Back on the Ofloxacin. Again it worked.
Then the same thing twice during lockdown, April & August, 2 more courses of Ofloxacin. They work until I come off them. The last course has done very bad damage to my knees. I could hardly walk. So I don't want to go back on it ever again.
I can feel some new symptoms starting again now. Discomfort around the head of my penis (not had this before), tingling around my general pelvic region, and discomfort in my buttocks that comes and goes, along with the golfball feeling, again that comes and goes.
I'm guessing the Antibiotics are having some positive effect on my prostate, but not getting through to kill all bacteria if it is indeed bacterial, or they are just helping to reduce swelling for the time I am on them if it is not bacterial.
Anyone have similar symptoms issues?
