I am a 24 year old male and have had this pain since I had a suprapubic catheter placed and removed in early 2005. The catheter was only used for a matter of a few weeks. i have since had testicular pain (one or both testicles), burning during ejaculation (both masturbation and sex), burning during urination, painful bowel movements, pain in the anal area and pain in the abdomen area, and base of penis. the pain can be stabbing, burning, cramping or guardedness During sex the pain becomes so excruciating that i can not perform and have to stop. The symptoms vary depending on what i am doing at the time but there always seems to be a sense of guardedness and slight pain around the area of the incision. when i sleep i wake up in pain a lot.this has been going on for almost 4 years now. i am very concerned. Thank you so much in advance for your replies!
I'm trying to imagine how the ilioinguinal nerve could be injured during placement of a suprapubic catheter- on both sides!? Not likely. And even that wouldn't explain the pain in the anal area. What was the reason for the suprapubic catheter?
I had a surgery for hydrocephalus and had to go back into the hospital after i started experiencing extreme headaches and vision issues. it was discovered that that particular procedure did not work. After being in the hospital for a while after my return they attempted to place a Foley catheter a few times. the urologist mentioned that he needed to do it the suprapubic catheter route. I had a shunt revision to correct the hydrocephalus within a short time later. Also it may be worth mentioning i was on 2 vicodin for every 4-6 hours following the procedures. Thank you so much for your reply Dr. Junig. I am very curious to find out what you think the possible causes could be.
the area with the most constant pain is the area surrounding the scar. This always is a discomfort of some sort in the penis but it increases and decreases. testicles do feel pain but not all of the time. at this moment the only testicle that hurts is my left one.
