What is wrong with me???
Hello. 33 y/o male.. Had back surgery 3 weeks ago. Had complications, got aseptic meningitis, and cerebral spinal fluid leaks. Ended up being bedridden in the hospital for nearly 3 weeks.

After I got home, I couldn't feel much in my saddle region, as well as testicles and lower half of my penis. I had many rounds of antibiotics, a catheter, lots of opioids. When not hooked up to a catheter, used plastic urinals by turning slightly sideways, which was often very messy. Not allowed to sit up. I have had thrush before.

Not long after coming home from the hospital, I noticed my testicles were very sore. The left one was and is noticeably swollen. I self diagnosed myself with epididymitis. I had antibiotics at home, and have been taking them 2 weeks with little change. I have been limiting activity, tried buying tighty whities, (hated it), and icing for relief with little relief.

Now, I'm sure I have candida. I've been getting headaches, my balls still hurt. Its a constant dull ache that never seems to leave. They are itchy. Sometimes I get jock itch symptoms in inguinal area, but not the rash. Under the head of my penis is a white smelly substance. There are blotches of red on the head of my penis, my scrotum, and the shaft at various times. My penis looks leathery and scaly. I've discontinued the antibiotics, started eating coconut oil, and cut out yeast and sugar from my diet.

Can I have thrush and epididymitis at the same time? What's happening? What do I do? Thanks.
