i had my left hydrocele surgery this year on JUly 21. it's been 5 months and one week . i was followed up with my urologist and the last time when i visit him in September, he said i was all fine. the whole time since the surgery , i didn't have any pain except the swelling which the doctor said it would take time to go down and told me to take ibuprofen and prescribed me antibiotics. last time i was all fine and told me to take ibuprofen if needed. just two weeks ago i had sex with this guy and i received anal penetration for about 20 to 30 minutes while i was in my tummy. he wasn't too rough on me, he also gave me a oral job. but after that encounter my left testicle is swollen again and this time when i touch it, it hurts. aim really worried. doctor told me if it hurts then i am in trouble and this is the first time when i am touching the testicle it's hurting and i am scared. i had some left over ibuprofen so it's my fourth day i am taking that once a day only to see if it works, but it's still swelled and hurts a little when i touch it. any suggestions? i am not going to the doc until dec 29, if it will hurt me more or disturb me with my social life then i would go to the ER, but at this time any suggestions? should i apply ice? hot water? keep taking ibuprofen?
