Hello i am 34 years old and have had a pain during an erection in february of 2008. It continued for a few days so i saw my family doctor who didnt do a culture but gave me some offloxacin for 6 weeks twice a day. after 4-5 weeks it cleared up only to return 3-4 days later. I then was given more offloxacin and it seemed to show some improvement as it was only a 3 week course this time. during this time i was waiting to see a urologist and was off antibiotics for 3-5 weeks approximately.
He then did a dre and 3 the glass test and found 8 white count. i was then given levaquin for 2 months and not having much success after 5 weeks with this. mostly my irritation felt like there was a knot in my lower abdomen below the belt that ached and if i lied on it was a little sorer. my testicles ache a tad and so does my back.
I had a vasectomy in july / august of 2007 and am wondering if the vasectomy could have been a rough one and the testicles and the other aches are due the radiation of that irritation?
Note that most of my symptoms did not occur until after my dre was performed and an abdominal physical exam.
