From the report, you are having a chronic infection of the epididymis. Chronic epididymitis is characterised by inflammation even when there is no infection present. Sometimes there may be compression of the nerves in the area which may cause persistent pain. We have to use antibiotics for a longer period of time and if it still persists then we can have cord block. This consists of an injection into the nerve that traces along the epididymis.
Last resort is of removing the epididymis. You consult your urologist and take the antibiotics or maybe some other antibiotics for a longer period of time.
I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
