Terrified of testicular torsion
« on: March 01, 2014, 04:27:04 AM »
About 5 days ago I accidentally kneed myself in my groin while kneeling, I had dull pain on and off ever since, but tonight I have sharp, shooting pain. And I keep thinking I have testicular torsion and, I keep thinking one of my testicles is twisted but I can't be sure because of all the anxiety. Now I'm afraid that I didn't go to the hospital in time and my testicle just died because the pain is going away now :spineyes:. How can I calm myself down?

My husband has this when he was younger and he was in so much pain he couldn't move.

Having played a fair amount of backyard sports when I was young, I'm no stranger to this sort of pain.  It seldom lasted more than a couple of hours - maybe a day.  If it still hurts on Monday I would call your doc just to be safe.

Got an ultrasound today, it's a type of inflammation from mild trauma, nothing serious. Need to take antibiotics for 7 days, but I get to keep my balls.  :action-smiley-065:
