I've been suffering for threee years and i neeed help, BAd! It first started when i had a discharge from my penis 3 years ago. It was a white, then yellow then greenish discharge. I went to the doctor and he gave me some cipro, the discharge went away and came back 4 months later. I prescribed cipro once again and the discharge went away for good. Two years ago i started to notice coldness in my testicles. I went and had a procedure done and i was diagnosed with prostatitus. I thinks tHAT'S rare because i was 22 years old at that time. I 've been on every antibiotic know to mankind. Cipro, Tequin, Levaquin, Doxycycline, Zithromax, Vioxx, Cefadroxil, Sulfamethoxazole?TMP DS with bactrim. Nothing has gotten rid of this irritating infection. I have been so stressed visit after visit no doctor has the answer for why my teticles are cold. Now the pain is getting worse in my left testicle. At certain times it feels smaller than the right testicle and it feels mushy. It's becoming painful. I also feel the pain in my left leg. If this was a STD, wouldn't those antibiotics have cured the disease by now? I was also taking ibuprofen 800 mg twice a day, that doesn't work. Could it be HIV(PLEASE, NO) my last visit the doctor said my prostate was still tender. No doctor can tell me why my testicels are cold. My stool even looks funny sometimes, like it has came out incomplete. Could a prostate infection have made me discharge in that manner without it being a STD. Sometimes my ejaculation looks like water and then other times it's whitish/yellowish and thick. Can i have kids, i don't have any right now and that would be a great disapointment to me if i couldn't. Up until i was 22 i use to have premature ejaculations in my sleep. Could that be related. Right now i'm in the process of trying Saw palmetto, it seems i'm out of options. I can;'t take this much longer please help me.Oh, i also have coldness at the tip of my penis and seldom have sharp pains. I also feel pain on the left side of my pelvis. Ihave hardly any of the syptoms of prosatitus.
Unfortunately, prostatitis is a frustrating infection to treat. It seems you have been on the full spectrum of antibiotics. There are some cases of prostatitis that requires 4 to 12 weeks of antibiotics.
If there is concern about the blood flow to the scrotum, a color-flow scrotal ultrasound can be considered to evaluate the scrotal vasculature.
I would also consider a transrectal ultrasound to evaluate the prostate. If you continue to have a tender prostate despite treatment with multiple antibiotics, there is always to possibility of an abscess - which antibiotics won't help.
If you are concerned about HIV and infertility - then appropriate testing (i.e. an HIV test and sperm count), should also be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
