Re:A sensitive issue. 3 Weeks, 5 Days ago  
What did you go to the doctor for if you aren't going to follow his advice? If you question what he says, then you're going to ask a bunch of bikers what you should do medically?

Let me tell you a little story about what doctors tell you. My wife got a little cut on her foot. Instead of healing, it got worse, so she went to the doctor. There were pumps, hyperbaric chambers, and weekly scrubbings involved. To make a long story short, 2 years later the leg had to go. Not too long after that, her other foot got a little cut. When it started getting worse, she didn't go to the doctor. She took care of it herself (she's a nurse). No pumps, chambers or pills. Some aloe vera from a plant in the backyard. Two years later, that foot is almost completely healed. So, yea, I'm all for a second opinion. And if I hear one that makes more sense to me, I'll probably go with it.

Having had a work related injury leaving similar symptoms I'm very curious as to the outcome of this. I have no advice. Just curious

Take the antibiotics, it will help settle any irritation.

The ultrasound hopefully define the source of the problem and then corrective action can be taken.

{I wouldn't offer advice unless I was knowledgeable in the condition, just 'cause I'm a biker, it doesn't define me. I do have a professional career, part of which includes men's health).

I'm always in favor of second and third opinions. I won't bore anyone here of the many problems I've had through my life because the first opinion wasn't the best option. That said, I also am of a mind that there are three kinds of opinions: First comes from someone who just likes to spout off and will do so at every chance. They may be good at pretending they know what they're talking about, so sometimes it's hard to tell how seriously you want to consider their idea. Second is the person with the anecdotal story of what actually happened to them and why they may feel different about some subject than the 'professionals'. Their experiences are real and it's a matter of deciding if their situation would fit your problem. Third is the area of specialization where the chances are the person has been working and studying in that field and can offer the latest study info. This last group normally would include doctors (although, without getting into the details, I've had some real jerks that were self-important and wasn't really considering my personal case).

My point is one should consider the source of information and realize that all info does not carry the same value.

Agreed. 2nd opinions aren't always what they're cracked up to be. When my doctor told me it's not looking very good I told him I wanted a 2nd opinion. He said, ok you're also ugly!

Doctor says to patient: "It's not uncommon to get an erection during a prostate exam". The man replies, "I don't have an erection". Doctor says, "I know, but I do".

Re:A sensitive issue. 3 Weeks, 2 Days ago  
I would take the antibiotics. Toby deals with similar issues with his epididymis, for him it is a chronic condition. When he first went to the Dr for it, he had to take antibiotics for about 3 months, and it is a particular antibiotic that is able to have an affect on that area of the body.

It is a good place to start, as making sure you are not fighting an infection, can help with further diagnosis. Also, it will actually help reduce inflammation there.

Get yourself checked out, you will probably be advised to change up your under clothing choices, they will want to check your prostate, and probably ask for blood work for PSA after the ultra sound.

Changing just how you sit on the bike should help as well. For heavy folks like us, we need to sit up and get off of our pelvic bones etc. Trust me, this is even a problem for a girl that has a plump rear and heavy thighs.

Wear the type of briefs that will pick your boys up a bit so you don't sit on them

I will be sending positive thoughts your way, I hope it is something simple and easily dealt with.
*big hugs*
